- The old adage goes: “if you build it, they will come.” For Savannah Repertory Theatre, the building is coming along but there is still some help from the community that is needed. The theater company broke ground on their future home at 402 E. Broughton St., the former Southern Motors dealership. The end goal is to open a community-run theater in downtown Savannah and bring a level of professional theater that is not commonplace around the city. 🎭(SavannahNow)
- The Chatham County Police Department has become the first law enforcement agency in Georgia to partner with the national ‘Lights On!’ program that provides vouchers for car repairs – instead of tickets — for violations like broken tail lights and signals that can result in a traffic stop.
