Re: “Editor's Note: 'Mayor Pro Tem': What it means and doesn't

Where was all the sore feeling for Ellis Cook, mayor pro temp, under Floyd Adams, when Otis Johnson became mayor and announced it was ''their time'' and Edna became mayor pro temp. I don't remember Tony Thomas making a stink then.

Re: “Editor's Note: Broken.

I worked with Ellis Cook 3 election cycles ago beat John Hall. Hall was supported and backed by the Reverend Smalls. As you stated he won by 18 votes. That's why I changed my profile to VOTE. And challenge everyone who wants to see change do the same.LET'GET OUT THE VOTE!

Re: “Violence, interrupted

If you live in Chatham County, you aren't an interloper. As you said the ''safe'' lines are blurred. I grew up in Gordonston in the 1960 -70's, the only gun shots heard were someone shooting squirrels. I remember when we never locked the doors. I moved downtown for 5 years in the early 80's and heard gun at night occasionally. I then moved to Isle of Hope for a year and again never locked my doors. I then move to Ardsley Park and saw muggings and found a gun on my front yard. I moved back to Gordonston in 1992. Crime was starting to surround the neighborhood. Gun fire has slowly become commonplace. This is not an just Eastside problem, but a city wide epidemic. Quality of life is quickly being eroded. When the Eastside Alliance was formed, Both John Hall and Tony Thomas claimed we didn't have a crime problem. Statistics said crime was down in our area. The passed few months has shown how wrong that is. This town is becoming a war zone.

Re: “Bait & Switch: The Fishy Tale of Coffee Bluff Marina

The problem seems to be typical city issues. You've got people who know nothing about boating and marinas making wrong decisions instead of listening to professional they contracted to run the marina. As for cost overruns, who in their right mind would pay $250.00 for a $25.00 dock cleat?
