Last year was rough on Liberty County. A Defense Department decision delayed - possibly ended - hopes that a new brigade would be stationed at Fort Stewart. Several levels of local government decided they could not help finance a new campus for Armstrong Atlantic State University in downtown Hinesville, Brewton-Parker College closed its Flemington campus, several businesses decided they had had enough, another deployment that will have most of our soldiers away for most of this year started and we suffered through the deepest recession since the Great Depression.
