Editor's Note: Green on Greene 

Welcome to our St. Patrick's Day special issue, in which we try and impart both the practical nuts and bolts of Savannah's legendary holiday as well as give locals and tourists alike a certain nuanced look into the, uh, flavor of the celebration.

We always strive to have a unique look on the cover for this issue every year, to differentiate us from all the other publications around town and their various takes on lucky leprechauns, pots o’ gold, etc., as well as to just have some fun in the true Savannah spirit of St. Patrick’s Day.

I’m not sure if Marilyn Monroe was Irish, or if she ever came anywhere near Savannah. But this year photographer Geoff L. Johnson brings us his homage to the iconic “Ballerina” shot of Marilyn, taken exactly 60 years ago by Milton H. Greene.

Our cover model this year is local actress, makeup artist, costume designer, and all-around great gal Corinna Rezzelle. (You might remember Corinna from Bill DeYoung’s fun profile of her in a recent issue.)

Anyway, I’m 100 percent positive Corinna makes a better cover subject than some generic Lucky Charms-type clip art, and I’m also pretty sure you’ll agree.

  • Editor's Note: After the utility bill fiasco, now what?

    Overarching this entire discussion is one of Savannah’s recurring themes: We are overly reliant on outside consultants to find problems and make the recommendations to move forward that we are already paying a City Manager and City staff to determine and execute.

  • Editor's Note: It’s not Jolene Byrne who needs to go

    On this issue, always keep this in mind: The rest of your elected School Board is essentially working to keep local students from being able to attend college. Their vendetta against the Board President has reached such a fever pitch that they hold every child in the district hostage to it.

  • ‘Thoughts and Prayers’

    It is very clear to me that the majority of elected and public officials who say 'Thoughts and Prayers' are neither deep thinkers nor praying people.
