Citi to give some of it’s bailout money back to us as a ‘gift’

The ultimate re-gift (your money)

That’s really nice of them. Now if we can just auction those houses off for more then $1,000 bucks a piece Pettigrew Heights will be swimming in the dough. Is Sanford looking for some more land?

The Citi Foundation will be giving $140 thousand to the city to help support revitalization efforts under way in the Pettigrew Heights neighborhood.

Start the presses, I think we need to mailout a Pettigrew Heights Calendar too. I betcha this money will be spent by Wednesday.

l3wis, sometimes i get behind on local news because I get caught up in national and world events. I was wondering if you could get me up to speed with a short history lesson on what’s happening here. Also, what are the boundaries of Pettigrew Heights? I should know, since it is primarily my stompin grounds as a kid.
