Picnic in the Park photos 

PICNIC IN THE PARK is in many ways the quintessential Savannah event: It’s outside, it involves lots of good food and drink, it celebrates the arts, and it’s free. Did I mention it’s free?

Because the event didn’t happen at all last year, a lot was riding on Sunday’s reincarnation of the longtime favorite event. Luckily, it was an outrageous success. Congrats to the Savannah Sinfonietta and the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs for making it happen, and to all who attended for answering the call.

I was one of the judges for the much-anticipated picnic competition, and I took some photos while we were walking around with our clipboards. For more photos from the evening go to my blog (click over on the lower right of the homepage under Blogs).

    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.
