Tighter reins won't dampen St. Pat's hoopla

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Once a year, this quaint Southern city known for its stately squares, Victorian homes and Spanish-moss draped oak trees turns green -- green clothes, green grits, green milkshakes and, of course, green beer. But some Savannahians fear new restrictions to control the wild partying may turn the nation's second-largest St. Patrick's Day celebration blue. "They're trying to kill St. Patrick's Day," said Rudy Gasdik, who co-owns eight shops along River Street. "Putting up gates is not going to keep out the crazy, wild people. It's going to kill the retailer."
