Jekyll developers rev their PR machine

I disagree with Eric Garvey's disingenuous assertion that "only a small number of vocal critics have raised questions" about redevelopment on Jekyll and only since Linger Longer was chosen in fall 2007 ("Jekyll Authority sensitive to public input" @issue, Feb. 14). The issues first came to my attention when I read an article in the AJC in December 2006. Horrified to find the Jekyll Island Authority and various legislators speaking up for massive development, I have been speaking out ever since. The JIA and Linger Longer thought they could just bulldoze through whatever they deemed appropriate. Otherwise, why no environmental impact study in the beginning? Now that they have serious public opposition, they have gone into full-assault public relations.
