Re: “Editor's Note: A bridge (name) too far?

No matter what the hype, Emancipation Proclamation was just words on paper. It's not like the slave-owners told their slaves they were free. After all these owners lived in states that seceded from the union. A Constitutional amendment apparently didn't carry a lot of weight either. At least when he was in the army Fremont didn't have to conduct himself like a politician.

Re: “Editor's Note: Byrne bows out. What’s next?

Bryne is not the only person on the school board with a child in the public school system. Board member Julie Wade is a "real life" mother whose three children attend public school. Board member Shawn Kachmar is a "real life" father, his children attend local public school. Byrne brought drama with her when she presided over her first board meeting. The 9:30 am time slot for the informal board meeting and the 1:00 pm regular board meeting were her brilliant ideas. One term of Jolene Bryne as school board president is enough.

Re: “Pooler Police Chief named as Interim Savannah Police Chief

I saw the report that Revenew was due to retire from the Pooler police department in April. Of course he says from the onset he is not interested in the job on a permanent basis. However what is to stop the City Manager, Mayor DeLoach and council from making him an offer he can't refuse?

Re: “Editor's Note: The superintendent’s space

Should there not be reserved parking spaces for principals? How about assistant principals since the emphasis is on walking a few extra yards.

Re: “Letters to the editor: Shopping Cart Edition

City has already outlined its budget. A free cart program is not in the equation, unless Mayor DeLoach and the council get persuasive pressure from those affected and their allies. One grocery store does have a cart recovery program. I saw the truck myself with the store's logo.

Re: “Editor's Note: Putting the shopping cart before the horse

I don't know how often Alderman Bill Durrence rides a CAT bus, but the aisles aren't that wide and the seating is limited. Heaven forbid if those who need to grocery shop and don't have their own transportation all happen to go to the store on the same day. Plastic bags used by these stores are not very durable even when double-bagged. Naturally grocery and retail reps would demur on pressing charges against their own customers.....they will wilt like lettuce under such bad publicity.

Re: “5 Questions with Jomo Kenyatta Johnson

I wish Rachel could have alluded more on who carried out the studies on Black Christian men. A think tank or a pollsters organization. If Johnson is gearing his book toward those who are slipping through the cracks, is the Unitarian Universalist Church really the ideal location for a book release? I wonder if any Black churches are going be included. Probably not!
