Re: “Pilot exercise program for Parkinson’s disease is a knockout

My wife was diagnosed of Parkinsons Disease at age 59. She had severe calf pain, muscle pain, tremors, slurred speech, frequent falls, loss of balance, difficulty in getting up from sitting position. She was put on Senemet for 6 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet. During this time span she was also diagnosed with dementia. She started having hallucinations, lost touch with reality.

This year, our family doctor started her on NewLife Clinic Parkinsons Disease Herbal mixture, 1 month into treatment she improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case of dementia, hallucination, weakness, muscle pain or tremors.

Visit NewLife Clinic website ww w.newlifeherbalclinic .com. She is strong again and able to go about daily activities.

Re: “Editor's Note: Fire Fee is an equal opportunity offender

This ripoff is patently illegal. Hopefully it will die a rapid death in a courtroom. Property taxes are supposed to pay for fire protection, not "studies" from high-paid out-of-towners or two city managers, one of whom does nothing, or teaching children finger-painting.

Re: “What Would Mother Mathilda Do?

It would be a great idea to include Mother Matilda's park etc. on tours of Savannah. As a matter fact, Susie King Taylor and her husband opened a school for black children after the Civil War at the corner of what is now Oglethorpe and E. Broad. The cost was $1 per month. In the same area are homes that once were used as "secret schools" after an 1818 law was passed that neither slaves NOR free people of color could be taught.

Re: “Editor's Note: Fire Fee is an equal opportunity offender

Solid wrap up Jim, thank you. The only problem I have is the entire premise for a fire fee is simply that city council has no other choice. Not true. Council could cease coddling tourism and hospitality and institute impact fees on all new construction.

Re: “Editor's Note: Fire Fee is an equal opportunity offender

City can't make the budget quite simply because they are spending our tax dollars irresponsibly, and are fundamentally corrupt. To lower the Millage rate now and levy a fire fee on residents is nothing more than a ruse. Next year they will be back with an increase in the fire fee, and and increase in the millage rate. I say replace city council with people that can get the job done with the funds that they have.

Re: “Books on Bay Bookstore

A valuable resource for the experienced and novice series book collector alike. A visit to Books on Bay is like taking a trip back to your childhood and the books you read and loved. Owner Betsy Hoit-Thetford is as much a treasure as the books the store stocks. Well versed in the many series available and always sharing her vast knowledge. My visit was cut short by approaching hurricane Mathew, but I cannot wait to return.

Re: “Gentrification: Part One

Its sort of fun to watch hipsters, SJWs, and virtue signalers agonizing about basically creating a "hipster suburb" as about as exclusionary as any gated community.

Re: “Editor's Note: Inside Savannah’s sausage factory

What if someone decides not to pay this illegal ripoff called the "fire fee?" Does the
fire department then let their structure burn?

Looks like the snakes at city hall again need to call in some outsider to tell them how to do their jobs via another useless "study." You know the routine. The taxpayers pick up their airfare, car rental, lodging fees at the Westin, restaurant and bar and baby-sitting bills and pay for them to fly back wherever they came from on the weekends.

Then, after as long as they can make the free ride last, the city gets the results of their "study" and a big bill for the property taxpayers. Then the "study" immediately sinks deep into the guts of some long-forgotten computer at city hall and we go from there. Maybe both city managers will be asked to give it some thought--the one drawing $200,000 per year for doing nothing, or the other one who gets paid the same salary to come up with these crackpot parking plans and this "fire fee" idea.

Re: “Gentrification: Part One

I love this. Probably the best and most comprehensive article I've ever read about Gentrification. Kudos to including many sides of the story objectively.

A couple thoughts: what about those who fall into more than one category? Homeowners who are also SJWs? And what about the majority of people who aren't immediately and directly affected by the changes? Most of them won't have the attention span to make it through an article like yours about the topic, much less have a sincere discussion about it. Sound bite opinions are far more convenient, and sadly, are more popular than ever - especially on social media.

I personally fall mainly into a "pro-gent" category, having witnessed the magnificent changes gentrification has brought to my own city of Pittsburgh. But Pittsburgh has also worked hard to minimize the impact on the most vulnerable by protecting affordable housing and assuring good paying jobs for locals as much as possible.

Id love to read more of what you write on the topic. Is there a way to sign up to receive notifications when you post?

Re: “Gentrification: Part One

Nice to see the integrity of open inquiry and the making of critical distinctions rather than righteous, dogmatic assertions either "for" or "against" "gentrification" as a univocality and monolithic phenomenon. Appreciate your perspectival complexity and your evocative illustration of the "good news/bad news" of "progress": of the evolution of any age (which presents problems which only an emerging/subsequent age or order of cognition can solve...Einstein's adage that "you can't solve a problem on the same level it was created" comes to mind here). There is nothing in existence without the capacity to cut both ways, and how kind or cruel those cuts turn out to be seems to depend on how creative we can be with the particular problems posed by our age and how we collectively "live them forward" into - and as - the next. How we do in relation to the evolution of our own neighborhood remains to be seen.

Re: “Can Savannah catch up?

Biking and walking trails...noble idea. Currently some bikers feel like they own the whole street and ride so close to cars one can reach out and touch them. Sharing the streets is not just on the drivers. About those walkers, some get so wrapped up on conversations on their cell phones they don't bother to see what is going on around them. Ditto for those with ear buds. How long must the rest of us have to atone for them?

Re: “Can Savannah catch up?

Ive traveled all over the U.S. and what amazes me the most is the states with the worst weather (i.e. long winter months) usually have some of the best bicycling and walking trails around. While we in the South, with weather everyone moves to, have the worst cycling and walking path system.

After living an area with walking and biking trails behind my house, In moving to Savannah I realize I took it all for granted. Savannah is in desperate need of quality of life improvements like the ones discussed in this article.
