Letters about coastal invasion have been inflammatory

Editor: In a recent Letter to the editor, the author claimed that the "sky is falling" due to the recent announcement to open up leasing opportunities in the waters around the United States. I don't know what's more egregious, the lack of information behind his arguments or the inflammatory nature and false facts being pushed in his diatribe. I'd like to address some of his concerns and points and present the facts on the matter.

Thanks for saving a child

Editor: I and the family of 2-year-old Lane Tomlinson would like to publicly express our sincerest thank you to the kindest lady, whom I have never met, named Ms. Rhonda Loyd for her heroic role in saving our sweet little angel.

Marsy's Law will help crime victims

When a violent crime occurs in Georgia, the public hears the story of the perpetrator in the local news. However, in the aftermath, victims and their families receive little attention, if any, as they deal with the criminal justice process - traumatized, frightened and with fewer rights than the criminals who harmed them.

County's best is yet to come

Happy New Year, Bryan County. The commissioners, county staff and I hope that you enjoyed your holidays … and the recent snow days as well. While it is a rarity to see snow and ice on the ground here in Coastal Georgia, last week's wintry weather served as a great reminder to us that it can (and does) happen, so it's best to be prepared. I commend our road crews and emergency services personnel for doing an excellent job pre-treating the roads and bridges as well as they could, and for reacting quickly and efficiently when accidents did occur.
