Re: “La Petite Abeilles

On Thursday, December 27, 2018, our family group enjoyed lunch at La Petite Abeillles in Savannah. Most of the tables were full when we arrived so we were happy we had reservations for five people.The atmosphere was very welcoming. The Chef and staff were excellent. We enjoyed eating on the front porch of this beautiful home. Front porches are great memories of people getting together to eat and enjoy each other's company.

Our group ordered different items from the menu so we were able to to see and discuss each dish. Everything was very good. I must say that mine was delicious. We also had two pots of different teas so we could sample each. We are already talking about another adventure there so we can try other items on the menu.

Our family gives this location an excellent rating for both food and atmosphere.

Re: “Third fatal shooting of 2019

Ya know,, Savannah has one of the BEST relationships between white and black folk in the entire country.....
That being said,,,, even tho we have a very small percentage of *N1663Rs*,, vs GREAT black folk,, (even good black fold don't want to raise their kids by N1663Rs),, the liberal media (D) refuses to acknowledge that we get along GREAT together...
The lamestream Media (D) continues to spew the bogus propaganda that there is some great hatred between black & white here in the *Deep South*,, mainly because it fuels their Fake News agenda that the yankee northeast likes to perpetuate.
And it is DISGUSTING ! ! !

And they will cancel this post out of simple BS due to the word "N1663R"...
It is the NEW libT ard censorship mantra to eliminate ANYTHING they don't agree with ! ! !

Re: “Santa’s Pantry: Helping Savannah children who need food

Remarkable. When I was a kid we might get a couple of orange slices or a half
a bowl of oatmeal at breakfast and take a baloney sandwich to school in a brown paper bag. You could buy a half-pint of milk for lunch if you had the money back then, or forget it. Now the concern seems to be that they can't lay out this bountiful banquet for these folks at certain times. And the schools are still some of the worst in the country. Bon appetit!

Re: “Hawg Scooters

If you like giving away $1423.40, then buy something from here. We bought our daughter a 4 wheeler for her birthday, because we want her to have the things we always wanted and didnt have growing up. The day we got it, we came home rode it for 20 minutes and it wouldnt crank again. We took it back to them because there was a 60 day warranty. They kept it for a week trying to repair it. Every time we got it back it would run for 10 minutes and the same thing would happen. They tried to repair it 4 or 5 times in the 60 days we had it. My daughter didnt get to ride it on her birthday, on Christmas, on New Years. We felt horrible that every time we would ask if she wanted to ride her four wheeler her face would light up, she would get her boots and helmet on, we would walk outside and it wouldnt start. Seeing her face broke our hearts. So we took the four wheeler back to them, and being told the last time by them to Give me one more chance to get it right. It wasnt right. Never ran right. They had multiple chances and we just had a bad taste in our mouths. When we dropped it off for the last time the owner wasnt there and wouldnt be back until after the New Year. We went out and spent $3000 on another four wheeler from someone else. Once the owner finally got in touch with us after 2 weeks his offer was to give us $1175. When we said No. How about $1400? He said he couldnt do that. We were willing to lose $23.40. Why did he offer any refund if he felt like what he did wasnt wrong?? The owner said he would sell it on consignment and we would get all our money back. We said No. We werent putting our name on a broken four wheeler that someone else would be screwed over with. We arent those people. So now, we have given them $1423.40, on top our all our time going back and fourth from their shop, the lost wages of work we had to miss, the gas, and our faith in business owners do the right thing. SHOP HERE AT YOUR OWN RISK OR IF YOU LIKE GIVING HARD EARNED MONEY AWAY!!!!

Re: “Editor's Note: Is 2019 the year Savannah makes a stand?

So true. This new regime is trying to blackmail us into voting for the fire fee. The surplus they had given to them, they wasted. The surplus came even while we had a full fire department. Obviously, the fee was not necessary had the budget been properly used.

Re: the weed section. You can protest that you do not approve any searches or seizures without a warrant. Hopefully you will have your own camera running. If the cops search anyway, a good lawyer can likely get any such "evidence" thrown out.

It is so true about selling the sizzle rather than the charm of Savannah. More and
more, Savannah is becoming a venue, not a historic city with a story to tell.

Re: “Editor's Note: A city in search of affordable housing

@ Malinda. Agreed. The city hall gang gets kickbacks, bribes, and "gifts" from the "developers" who then also agree to hire their family and friends, and residents be damned.

Re: “New Year’s Resolutions: A wishful rant for Savannah

Get real. The power-brokers behind the scenes at city hall pull all the strings and make all the decisions well in advance of when those rubes and geeks on city clowncil ever meet. Things here are decided by political appointee. It's been that way for the past 60 years or so. You're a "journalist?" Dig into it and report the real story.

Re: “Reconstruction Era National Monument still a work in progress

As I understand it, Sherman issued his famous "Order No. 15" providing for "40 acres and a mule," not at the Green-Meldrim Mansion, but at the 2nd African Baptist Church on Houston St. at State St. Stanton had been sent here after the Yankee press went wild upon learning that (Yankee) General Jeff Davis had left the ex-slaves following his army on the far side of Ebenezer Creek after he cut loose the army engineers' bridge, stopping them from following his army.

Stanton and Sherman appeared at the church and Sherman issued his order, later nullified by Congress or at least never put into practice anywhere.

The tone of this article seems to be that Reconstruction was fun and games. Actually it was misery and suffering for everyone in the south, black and white.

Re: “Editor's Note: Is 2019 the year Savannah makes a stand?

About one third of Savannah properties pay NO PROPERTY TAX at all. This includes ALL churches, synagogues, and mosques and a tremendous number of SCAD properties. Why are we beleaguered taxpayers picking up that slack????

Re: “Editor's Note: Is 2019 the year Savannah makes a stand?

I feel like the fire fee rejection was more grounded in equity concerns than not wanting to support fire services. The way the fee was structured made it inequitable-- because it was coupled with a millage rate decrease that nullified it for higher dollar properties. I think people would be ok with a moderate fee to support fire services, as long as it was equitably distributed.

Lots of folks around here I'm sure don't want a new tax, but taxes can be/are more equitably distributed based on property value or income, than a flat fee per household. So, sorry, tax-haters, but step away from the rhetoric and recognize that our taxes do work for us, and having a narrative where we can't even openly discuss it is probably hurting us in the long run.
