Re: “Editor's Note: Seaboard shame and the rigged Savannah game

Well argued and written and thank you for exposing these corrupt officials. Question is "Who" will be the next or new "Wrecking Ball 7" that stood to save The Davenport House? That'd be a retro-feminist action I could get behind.

Re: “Editor's Note: Seaboard shame and the rigged Savannah game

In every board that I've been on, ex-officio members don't vote or make motions. They are there to participate in the discussions only. Why is this board different? As things stand now, it looks like the MPC exists solely to provide cover for the political class. I have several friends on the MPC. They should be embarrassed by this whole mess and, in particular, the bullying of the County Manager. If the MPC is really this impotent, then they should all resign.

Re: “Editor's Note: Seaboard shame and the rigged Savannah game

Where was the push to get the Seaboard on the National Register five years ago? That's what I don't understand!!!!

Re: “Editor's Note: Saving the Seaboard, and political news

Durrence turned out to be a total dud. He played ball with the city hall machine and got the walking tours banned from the front of his house on St. Julian, then "retired." He doesn't lift a finger in response to contact from voters and he doesn't return emails. If Detric beats him--and I hope Durrence does get beaten-- then I hope the Durrence Anti-Walking Tour Law will be nullified and Durrence will again get his feathers ruffled. He is one gigantic zero.

Re: “Editor's Note: Seaboard shame and the rigged Savannah game

The developers bribe the city hall gang outright, or promise kickbacks, or agree to hire their family and/or friends so that they can funnel funds back to people running the city hall machine and on clowncil. They are selling off history and heritage in this manner.

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

Re: “Editor's Note: Seaboard shame and the rigged Savannah game

Are you saying keep the Seaboard AND the apartments? Or no to the apartments too? And what of the lost property taxes if all of this hifalutin, anti-development, hysteria sways the City Council to save the Seaboard? And if the Seaboard is SAVED, what then for that property? Just another wall to piss on when walking Louisville Rd., I guess.

Re: “Editor's Note: Seaboard shame and the rigged Savannah game

Hiring all these "outsiders" is distroying our town. They are not attached to old Savannah. Just see money.

"First of all, there is no other reason why the County Manager and the City Manager should both have seats on the Metropolitan Planning Commission." Thank you Jim, totally agree with you.

Re: “Editor's Note: Identifying Savannah’s core competency

The packed house was a contrast to last year's event. Press release from SCCPSS said the Downtown Neighborhood Association invited Palumbo to talk about extending historic preservation to other neighborhoods of Savannah. Apparently that other neighborhood was Ardsley Park. So the neighborhoods of Cuyler-Brownville, Feiler Park, Cann Park, Carver Village and West Savannah are out of luck. Maybe the aforementioned are expendable. So much for inclusion. Maybe the head of Smart Growth Savannah will correct this oversight in 2020 when the Downtown Neighborhood Association invites him back and they will in partnership with The Friends of Massie.

Re: “Editor's Note: Saving the Seaboard, and political news

Lord,Lord Savannah continues it's "slow learner" way. Tear it down then cry about it for years. City Market,Desoto,Union Station just to name a few. Hear we go again.

Re: “Keep up the pressure to stop offshore drilling

I wrote to 'Buddy' Carter to voice my opposition to these threats. The first line of his response was this: "I was born in Coastal Georgia, raised my family here, and plan on living here for the rest of my life. I will not support any move that threatens our beautiful natural resources or puts our local economies in harm."
He then continues on saying: "Through meetings, round tables, and even a fact-finding mission to the Gulf of Mexico, I became confident that we could, at the very least, assess the resources available off the coast of Georgia should we ever need them." And "Harnessing America's energy potential would also have a profound impact on our national security by reducing our dependence on foreign energy sources often hostile to our national interests."
Hostile to our National interests?? How about trying to be a leader in the field of energy production instead of a follower, following a grifter all the way to the dark ages??
"Buddy" Carter has no intentions of protecting our coast or our rivers. He is apparently 100% behind the current administration's push for seismic testing and drilling. And we are all aware (or should be at this point in 'The Game') that there is zero concern in this administration for our coast and all of it's inhabitants.

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: “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: “18 for '18: The Year in Review

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.

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

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.
