    Jacksonville Transit

    ^ used the trolley system in Memphis, TN and it was great! if you wanted to go anywhere in a N/S direction in the city it was very convenient. buses are garbage and the JTA/TU/etc. are out of their minds if they think it is the way to go... via light rail!

    Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium [Renovation Completed]

    ^ Any chance that would actually happen? Would Orlando support an MLB team? I watch the Marlins on FSN Florida (when they play the Braves) and I feel bad they get zero support from Miami (unless they are in the World Series).

    Tallahassee Regional Airport

    Woo-hooo! I hope that all local government entities get behind this and help Tallahassee land the Piper facility. That would be HUGE for the community! (Plus perhaps corporate sponsorship for other things.... Piper Field anyone?)

    Tallahassee Regional Airport

    what you said is true and as long as capitalism (best economic system around) prevails this is a viable market strategy to force competition out. the sad truth is that tallahassee is a market that has to be happy about what it gets concerning air service rather than be able to dictate the terms and lure discount carriers. i do not think the basic economics of the airport will change unless our population explodes and it's moved to a more convenience location. (so people outside leon county could access it more easily.)

    Tallahassee Regional Airport

    we should be. our airport is JV and does not present a good initial impression to those travelling on business or looking to relocate a business to our region. unfortunately i travel a lot and our airport is in the absolute worst location. speed bumps one way and a two lane road the other... its time to relocate the airport north to near I-10... either that or build a dedicated highway to and from the airport from I-10... the current set up is insane and once PC Int'l opens up business will slacken more... *sigh*

    is that the building that Hancock Bank is located in? i didn't know they let people just go up and walk around... i am still not used to just being able to enter a building and go up...

    nice to see northern new england getting some attention on this board. any new pictures of manchester? i miss that place! i haven't been back since i moved south in 2001... i read the UL online and Elm St. really seems (from what i've read) to be taking off. if anyone could post some pics of it and Manch-Vegas in general, an ex-pat NH-ite would appreciate it greatly! btw, anyone headed to see UNH/Dartmouth this weeked? pics of that would rock too... GO 'CATS!!!

    Tallahassee Regional Airport

    i agree. when i fly it's out of jacksonville. even with the two hour drive and gas the fares are still lower than what i'd pay in tallahassee... plus, no speed bumps. Southwest seems only to serve larger markets or those located near one... Tallahassee seems to be in between larger places but not close enough to make it an attractive (profitable) destination for someone like Southwest.. maybe they'll prove me wrong...
