History
First settled in 1736 by Noble Jones, John Fallowfield, and Henry Parker, the area was recognized as an important defensive outpost on the young colony’s inland waterway south from Savannah. Noble Jones’s Wormsloe Plantation was the site of a fort that defended Savannah from Spanish attack until 1742. The area was fortified during the Civil War, but saw little action. After the Civil War, Isle of Hope became a popular resort community. Where the river met the railroad was Barbee’s Pavilion, which became world renowned in the 1920s. The Isle of Hope Methodist Church was built in 1859 and was used as a Confederate hospital during the Union occupation of the area in 1864. Carvings were made in the pews by patients and the historic cemetery holds the graves of 33 Confederates mainly from Effingham County. Historic Wormsloe Plantation, Bethesda Orphanage, the oldest still-operating in America, and the Isle of Hope Marina are located on or near Isle of Hope.

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Limited to Unveil Jewelry Designed by SCAD Students on September 22

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

The Limited to Unveil Jewelry Designed by SCAD Students on September 22

Student Designs will be sold at The Limited in Savannah and Online

 

(SAVANNAH, GA 9/16/2011) The Limited will debut a jewelry collection featuring original designs by seven Savannah College of Art and Design students during a private unveiling on Thursday, September 22 at the chain’s Oglethorpe Mall location.

The media is invited for a sneak peak from 5:30-6:00 p.m, September 22.

A private reception will follow from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and will include remarks by Linda Heasley, CEO of The Limited, and Victor Ermoli, Dean of the School of Design at SCAD.

The partnership between the iconic women’s retailer and the nation’s premier art and design university was devised to provide students with real business experience and offer The Limited’s customers fresh designs. 
"The Limited’s mission is to help our customers achieve their personal success – fulfilling their potential and looking great every step of the way," said Linda Heasley, CEO of The Limited. "Which is why we were excited to partner with SCAD – to give students priceless, real life experience in the fashion industry and ultimately expose our customers to new and different collections." This collaboration is truly a unique partnership of commerce and design."

The Limited reached out to SCAD for this partnership for both their reputation as a leading design institution, but also their emphasis on developing marketable skills.

"As part of SCAD students’ career preparation, we work with leading companies on collaborative projects. Through custom-designed assignments and commissioned work, our students gain real-world, professional experience-and our partners benefit from new perspective and fresh ideas," said Victor Ermoli, Dean of the School of Design at SCAD.

To kick off this collaboration, executives from The Limited met with SCAD students in the Jewelry and Objects department in January 2011. Taking into account the company’s creative and business requirements, the students created designs inspired by The Limited’s Holiday 2011 concepts. During a formal presentation in March, the students’ final designs were evaluated on their commercial and creative aspects. Twenty jewelry styles were selected for production for this capsule collection that will debut at The Limited’s Oglethorpe Mall store beginning on September 22. The collection will also be available at
thelimited.com on October 3. Based on sales performance, The Limited expects to expand the collection to additional stores in the future.

"Ultimately this partnership is about the opportunities created by great design. We’re excited to help these students see how their design work can open doors to real life business opportunities," said Heasley. "We’re proud to share their work with The Limited customer."

SAVANNAH / RICHMOND HILL: Four Ways to Reduce Your Energy Bill Through Your Roof

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

Four Ways to Reduce Your Energy Bill Through Your Roof

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

(SAVANNAH, GA / RICHMOND HILL, GA) The record-breaking temperatures in Southeast Georgia this summer have done more than just sap energy. They have also contributed to skyrocketing power bills.

 

RPI Energy, a division of RPI, a Richmond Hill-based roofing company that specializes in commercial, industrial and residential roofs, offers the following tips to reduce energy bills through your roof.

 

 

Use Lighter Colored Roofing Materials

Roofs traditionally are black, however, more and more consumers are discovering the benefits of using white or cool color roofing systems. Cool roofs work by reflecting and emitting the heat of the sun back into the atmosphere. This process of solar reflectance and thermal remittance helps keep occupants more comfortable, especially during the summer. As a bonus, air conditioning costs can be reduced, thereby reducing power bills. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, by installing a white or cool color roof, consumers can reduce their annual air conditioning energy use by up to 15 percent for a single-story building.

 

Other benefits of cool roofs include a reduction of peak demand for electricity, which ultimately may help to lower costs and prevent power outages. Cool roofs also can mitigate global warming and reduce the urban heat island effect and smog.

 

Insulate Your Roof

Adding insulation to a roof system is another way to decrease energy consumption. Polyiso, a thermosetting type of plastic with closed-cell foam, has low-conductivity gas in its cells. Though used mostly on commercial roofs, many homebuilders and homeowners are beginning to use the material because of its high thermal performance. Polyiso is available in liquid, rigid foam board and sprayed foam forms. Installing polyiso insulation below the membranes of the roof can reduce energy usage and help decrease your energy bill.

 

Use Solar Photovoltaic Panels on Your Roof

Generating electricity by installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels is not only environmentally friendly, it also can save the consumer money in the long run. PV cells work by converting sunlight directly into electricity. Using that solar electricity on your rooftop can power various parts of your home, from hot water systems to solar attic fans. In the long run, solar roofs help reduce peak energy costs incurred, especially during the hot summer months.

 

Install a Green Roof

Green roofs, also known as living roofs, are rooftops that are covered either entirely or partially with some form of vegetation. The roofs feature a waterproof membrane underneath the vegetation. Some green roofs also include drainage and irrigation systems.

 

Installing a green roof can help reduce heat by adding another layer between the building and the environment. Green roofs with drainage and irrigation systems have added benefits including rainwater harvesting, in which the homeowner uses his or her roof to channel and store water. Such water can be used to water the grass, thus reducing monthly water bills. Harvesting rainwater is especially helpful for people who live in areas where daily water use is restricted.

 

“The roofing industry offers a number of environmentally friendly solutions that benefit the customer and the world around us,” says John Reynolds, president of RPI. “Even minor changes to a roof can make a big difference to consumers looking to lower their electric bills and protect the environment.

 

About RPI

RPI (Roofing Professionals, Inc.) has served residential, commercial and industrial clients for more than 11 years, providing professional roofing solutions from standard maintenance to restoration and replacement. In addition to offering traditional roofing services to customers in Southeast Georgia, Augusta, Georgia, and South Carolina, RPI specializes in green roofing initiatives. RPI was recently presented with a 2011 Firestone Partner in Quality Award for its dedication to roofing system excellence and has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. For more information, please call 912-756-ROOF (7663), email info@rpiroof.com or visit www.rpiroof.com.
