Re: “Alderman Van Johnson announces run for Mayor of Savannah

I fully don't trust anyone that holds two political offices (the City and the County) at the same time and is clearly, a conflict of interest.

Re: “City Council approves compromise plan to save portion of Seaboard Freight Station

@ Red. The HSF has slid rapidly downhill. There was a time when their word and advice had a bit of weight here, but no longer. Now they are a group of tea-drinkers and garden party clacks, dressing in their Walmart finest for the next "big" meeting which goes nowhere and produces nothing at all.

Re: “City Council approves compromise plan to save portion of Seaboard Freight Station

Can't have it both ways--the beginning of a new, supposedly "vibrant" Canal District with a place for actual people to move into VS. saving a dilapidated building that not one person who supposedly cares about the Seaboard ever went to, ( not even when it was the Muse Arts Warehouse). That area, right now, is a place for a smoke and bathroom break for the adult male felons coming and going from the Coastal Transitional Center.

Re: “Celtic Ceol Feis set to reboot former Tara Feis

The City itself admits they were behind the de-funding. Tara Feis was a City-funded and in-house project. http://www.wtoc.com/story/37247375/tara-fe…

Re: “City Council approves compromise plan to save portion of Seaboard Freight Station

20%? Tony Thomas called it accurately as did Van Johnson in their statements. Lee Adler rolling over in his grave. And to think but a handful of years ago they tied up a couple in The Georgia Supreme Court over some unapproved Johnny Smith ironwork details on a Jones Street house after they put 5.5 million into renovating a nearly condemned house! And the couple lost and left town! Yet this developer gets to whack 80%? Abysmal failure! Historic Savannah Foundation needs to widen its net and it's priorities straightened. Not next week or next month but now! Why are we even having this conversation after so much structural loss? We've been betrayed folks. By apathy, by evasion, by the system. Just all around betrayed. Its time for new leadership!

Re: “Celtic Ceol Feis set to reboot former Tara Feis

It was not a change in funding priorities. It was because the funding was by application and Tara Feis did not apply like everybody else. I am very happy to hear it is being brought back under new management.

Re: “City Council approves compromise plan to save portion of Seaboard Freight Station

I dont see how Alderman Johnson could have been so easily blindsided. Hes too seasoned for that. Same with the others who voted against. The version given is too simplistic to be authentic.

Historic preservation dealt another blow by a City that has sold its soul...

"It's OUR time now"..... Otissssssssss.........

I hope some of the cons can find a "jailhouse lawyer" who will file a First Amendment lawsuit.

Re: “Olde Pink House looks forward to re-opening "as soon as possible" after fire

I, as a very proud resident of the fabulous city of Savannah; am very relieved that this beautiful, historic landmark and restaurant, was not too badly damaged. Thank God!

Re: “Georgia, S.C. now have firearm permit reciprocity

If a student (under 21) attends school in Georgia and has a CC license from Alabama, are there any restrictions for him to CC in Georgia? I have read that, since hes under 21, he would couldnt legally carry in Georgia but another article said it was legal. Can anyone confirm one or the other?

Re: “Groups sue to prevent seismic airgun blasting off Georgia and South Carolina coast

Didn't even finish reading the article and already emailed all three politicians. They may not read it. They may not even care. I suspect the benefits of toeing the Trump line looks more profitable, both financially and politically. However we have to keep trying. There is no other option but to keep trying.

Re: “City Council: Savannah poverty rate down to 21 percent

Are the statistics really all that new? Maybe Savannah Economic Development Authority rearranged some numbers to make City Council look good for the next election. I want to see Mayor DeLoach and Alderwoman Shabazz explain what exactly it was they did to reduce the poverty rate.

Re: “Gloria Steinem biopic casting for Savannah shoot

WOW, a whole ten bucks an hour! Anyone else get the irony of a film about an iconic feminist paying slave wages for background and bit people? How about some of you Hollywood folks forego a few extra bucks of your obscenely high salaries and throw the overage into the pot?

Re: “City spreading the word about new property maintenance regulations

I hope this will apply to Windsor Forest along, Windsor Road, for Glenbrook example. The city inspectors do not care or are paid off.
Windsor Forest looks like Used Car Lots with vehicles parked anyplace on the lawns even in front of the living room picture window.

Re: “City Council to solicit input on what to name Cultural Arts Center

@ Mayor DeLoach, judge not lest ye be judged. Your worrying is presumption and presumption is a sin.
