This shows the rising market only for apartments. Hence, Fannie Mae, the government-controlled mortgage re-packager, posted $5.1 billion in profits for April, May and June of 2012. It was also the second time since the feds took over the company that it has shown a net quarterly gain. The posting is yet more evidence that the housing market is starting to move toward stability.

Great article, (titled: Can You Make Money and Feel Good About It?) sets a super perspective for how social impact investing has grown over the last few years & how orgs like JPMorgan are managing funds like this now too!
So, who needs more evidence that these things are REAL & that it's time for Savannah, Georgia & local investments to be done this way?
Maybe even a new approach for affordable housing, mentioned in this article!
This also gets us to pay-for-success projects... Who wants those?

Gulfstream is a very important growth company for the entire SE region. I see their influence from Charleston to Melbourne, not just because of their own facilities but because of their supplier network as well. I hope you will do more on this important company in our region.

Some nice coverage from Knight Digital Media Center on savannahnow.com's new mobile website
Why SavannahNow's mobile website looks like an app
Also, a great article from SMN V.P. of Audience, Steve Yelvington.
Why there's no news on our mobile homepage

I really liked how Hasbro crowdsourced this promotion. Like you said, a great way to get the younger generation to give a damn about board games when they are already wrapped up in video games.
I tended to always use the car token when I played and do have an affinity for the derby hat. I never much was for the iron token so I am not too broken up that it is gone and the cat token looks pretty good.

It's one of the tough reasons why the bridge construction goes slowly. I guess its time for them to get some aid at excel bridge. That would be the best alternative and solution for the current issue of the bridge construction. Take the advice of some experts and learn from them.

Maybe it's too forward-thinking to propose that the new bridge have four lanes instead of the two (plus the deceleration lanes as highlighted in the article). Won't the new South Carolina port facilities thrust significant increases in traffic along this corridor? So long as a completely new bridge is being constructed, that would be the right time for progressive infrastructure improvements like that, as surely South Carolina will be making widening improvements to Hwy. 17 just past the bridge.

Thanks for the post! Our kick-off in Americus this past weekend was a great success. Young Gamechangers includes very enthusastic and innovative leaders from across the state and I'm excited to be a part of this initiative. Thanks to Georgia Forward for this proactive program to work with the City of Americus and the Young Gamechangers!

I agree with Mr. Wilfong, the city international outreach office has the potential to make a significant difference for small to medium size businesses in the Greater Savannah area. In addition to China, there are small to medium size companies in Mexico, Brazil, Germany, Israel and the United Kingdom that wants to do business with companies in the Savannah area. I encourage the outreach office and the local business community to embrace this opportunity. The City of Savannah Economic Development Department phone number is (912) 651-3653 and ask for MarRonde Lumpkin Lotson.
The World Trade Center - Savannah is another resource for local companies interested in learning more about international trade with foreign companies. Their phone number is (912) 447-9707.

Mary, well-written as always. As a frequent flyer I hope the prediction of more seats being available in the future comes to pass. As an etiquette consultant I can't help but wish the additional riders will fly with more courtesy and respect for others.
