Re: “16-year-old shot, killed

Are "random shootings" included in the official number of Savannah murders or are they special exemptions like the July 4th City Market Unpleasantness? Just wondering...

Re: “Southern Company set to press forward with controversial, overbudget Plant Vogtle nuclear plant expansion

Pipelines, fracking, hydropower even, etc. none have the energy flux density that is needed for full scale U.S. industrial and agricultural production. Run all sources wide open for production then ease off into total dependence on cleaner and more dense energy platforms. Who knows? Maybe by then we'll have He3 to fuel thermofusion reactors. A track of diminishing returns for dirty energy heading toward progress as well as low pollution and climate changes mean the race to win is tricky.

There is wisdom in recognizing a bad decision that was made instead of keeping thempressure on so amfew... Not the customers... Will make money in the end... I don't always agree with Reed Dulany but his plan on President St. With solar energy makes better sense... Andree Patterson

Re: “GBI to investigate local gun buyback program

Who is doing the studies and how long have they been at it? Traveling gun shows don't reduce crime in violent communities either. Sales at them aren't limited to hunting and collecting. Odds are that Bubba might be making straw purchases for consumers in the 'hood. Probably have a barter system going on.

Re: “City Council to move forward on plan to 'expand the story' of Savannah's Confederate monument and to attempt to rename Talmadge Bridge

We live in Savannah, GA. Our whole tourism industry is built on our history with all the good, bad, and the ugly that comes with centuries of history. I walk by these monuments every day and what I perceive is great pieces of art with history attached to each one. Removing a confederate monument is hypocritical to me. Yes the Confederate fought the Civil War because they wanted to retain slavery and inherently that is just pure evil.The argument can also be made that we get rid of all monuments relating to any time period where that person owned slaves which would probably wipe out half of our squares unique history. Please people think before you act. Don't let today's news make your own opinion. The only cause people should be focused on is to help SAV is helping the poor and improving education for kids from impoverished areas of our town. Be a good Sameratan, love the neighbor for we our one big community.

Re: “Juvenile suspect in gang-related City Market shooting/crash has criminal history

Given the short attention span and unless the Associated Press picked up on this story, there will be crowds in 2018.

Re: “UPDATED: One in custody after three dead, multiple injured in downtown shooting, auto crash

I hope Mayor DeLoach misspoke when he was quoted as saying We need to have those officers in place now, so that the chief can interrupt that before it gets downtown,

Figuratively walling off sections of the city isn't going to do anything to eliminate crime. It's like giving up the land to secure the castle, only to starve out eventually.

A defensive policing policy only delays the inevitable. It's not a problem you can just throw manpower at either. Aggressive police units divorced of politics and funded community outreach/alternatives are the only way this will actually be solved.

Re: “Tony Thomas censured after contentious hearing; Van Johnson speaks in support of accused alderman

I wonder if James Ellroy has been taking notes on Savannah. He'd certainly have an abundance of material to fashion an intriguing and disturbing novel.

Re: “Lucas Theatre staff terminated in stunning shakeup

Yup. The president being paid $10 million a year, plus two residences, food and travel stipends, by far the highest of any college in the United States.

Emory University president in comparison? 1.2 million.

Scad has been good for Savannah in some ways, bad in others, I suppose that's the same for almost any other institution in Savannah.

Re: “Lucas Theatre staff terminated in stunning shakeup

But in all honesty That place has never been used to its full potential. Great location, great venue, HAD A GREAT STAFF.....SWEET HOME SLOWVANNAH. That place should be sold out with concerts,plays,performances, etc every single weekend. Only this city would miss out on the cash that place could have generated.

Re: “City unveils online water/utility bill payment

This is so funny. I have 2 business locations in the city and have seen months go by where the checks are outstanding. Do these people not understand that if they absorb the cost of echeck and CC their money is in the bank sooner and without the labor involved in handling checks? Probably not because they are bureaucrats
