Re: “Editor's Note: Report Card from the Shenanigans

When's the last time any of ya'll threw a really good, crowded, diverse, everybody-you-know and the people-they-know party? There will always be "stuff" to clean up. Always. I don't think you can even have a 4 lady bridge game in the afternoon without someone spilling their sweet tea. Have the party--those relationships and contacts with people, often people unknown to you, are priceless. The clean up is a hassle but not unexpected (at least by now). Or legislate the parade and party away. Back to your phones then, for what passes as human contact.

Re: “Victory North in Starland set to fill performance niche

This could be a wonderful addition to the local music scene, but having spent time at the House of Blues in Boston, anyone who is standing under the mezzanine, gets sub-par sound. Let's hope the designers can take that into consideration

Re: “Editor's Note: Report Card from the Shenanigans

The parade itself should run on Abercorn from Georgetown to DeRenne... no square to trash... plenty of parking with all of the parking lots... skip the Historic Victorian and Landmark Districts - we have done our share for too many years already with the limitations imposed on the residents.

Educate the revelers ahead of time... if they can't learn to party and still have some respect for their environment and their entourage - let them know the partying will be sanctioned the following year.

Keep River Street area open as is for the revelers after the parade... the parade should not be for drinking - it should be a family event!!!

It is time for our City Leaders to make this a much needed learning experience for residents and tourists alike!

Re: “Marching to Flannery’s beat

She didn't write much if anything about Savannah, and the characters she does portray with a religious background are all Protestant fundamentalists. Just sayin'.

I love her of course, and read and re-read her stories often. I don't think she had time to be "racist." Why besmirch her memory?

Re: “Editor's Note: Report Card from the Shenanigans

It is very likely illegal to charge people to use the public sidewalks as per River Street, no matter what their state of "impairment" is. Of course it is a cash cow for the city, so legality goes out the window.

Re: “Editor's Note: Report Card from the Shenanigans

I think GREEN CRUSH might have to have their license looked at. Perhaps they could ask Tybee Island how they did it with regards to Orange crush...which is an un-sanctioned event. To have a sanctioned event and to have this type of behavior would throw most residents into a mouth foaming tizzy if this was a black event.
Lets hear it for those sanctimonious trolls who think it ok for "kids will be kids", but when it comes to another race, ethnic group or someone outside their comfort zone, that it's cause for a law to be implemented, or zoning to be created to stop it. Careful what you wish for.

Re: “The SPLOST/Arena Nexus

Nobody in his right mind would go to that location at night and/or leave a car unattended for the time spent inside the "arena." Nobody in his right mind would get up on voting day, go to the polls, and vote an increased tax on himself.

Re: “Editor's Note: Arena video unwittingly highlights issues

Thanks for sharing the video. There is a marked lack of diversity in the CGI folks--but there is also a marked lack of diversity already at the Civic Center, depending on what is going on there. And by that I mean, blacks go to black shows, whites go to white shows, etc. Also, when the video gives the panomoric view around the arena most of Stiles Avenue has been airbrushed away. Well, its still there and looks nothing like SWPL--CGI or not. The canal is far less wide and less romantic than depicted and there are, at this time, zero put-ins for kayaks, canoes, or other small boats. There are, however, multitudinous snakes and other creepy crawlies that ply the canal regularly. And that's a LONG bike ride from downtown assuming that few of the bicyclists depicted seem like they would be coming from Carver Heights. The new arena doesn't look substantially different, to me, than what is already downtown. It will be just further removed from folks who its intended for--cuz politics.

Re: “Editor's Note: Arena video unwittingly highlights issues

why are we building this Arena, we have no sports team to occupy and help fund it...will it sit empty for the majority of the year??? will our colleges try to use it in some way? Can you play Baseball there? or just indoor sports? what a "elephant" project. can it be used for music events etc??? I don't care how user-friendly it may be...who thought this out???

Re: “The SPLOST/Arena Nexus

Excellent job, Jason. I learned a lot I didnt know amd assume there is a whole lot more we still dont know...which suggests that you have a year round series of arena articles in front of you. Why officials dont realize that you can still win amd involve the residents at the same time is the great tragedy of moral collapse and yes, a question to our presiding Council candidates running for office. Cheers!

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.

Skin in the game in this case means caring about and having a stake in the civic and cultural identity of the city you live in.

Re: “Editor's Note: The 20 percent solution

The sad part is that Savannah is no longer a historic city to be protected and appreciated for its history and architecture , it is pretty much developing into just a venue that attracts people who are looking for fun activities.

Jim--I'm thinking for about $250 each, you and the other 3,999 could buy that property. Then you would have skin in that game. :)

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.
