We have the same supervisor for both high schools, Bradwell and Liberty. So why did she allow one to have five classes, and the other four? They both should have five. It’s unfair to some students who want more classes and shorter periods. Since we don’t have choice of schools, why can’t they both be equal?

Please, if you could, make the Bible verse larger. The funnies are larger, so make the verse larger.

The taxpayers of Hinesville want to know why there are three Wal-Marts in Hinesville. They are very upset about it. We don’t need three. And some want to know why they gave donations to one school. There are a variety of stores we could have gotten. Something is fishy.

Coastal Electric has upped our customer service fees from $15 to $27 a month. This is just for the privilege of getting electricity from them and I think it is ridiculous.

In reference to the call about Canada becoming a state, everybody knows Canada became a state at the same time Kenya did.

Why can Liberty County charge senior citizens taxes for the schools when the state says we don’t have to pay it? Senior citizens need to get together and fight this. That’s unfair to senior citizens.

The street committee says that our school superintendent got another contract and a big raise. Is this true? I certainly hope not since a lot of school level jobs were cut last year and our kids are the ones suffering.

My child went on a hunt around school today for a slave. He expressed to me there was a reward for finding this slave. After being astonished by the news of his day, he explains they made signs to post around the school “Wanted runaway slave.”

Someone in the Sound Off last week was offended by TCE students dressing up as 100 year old people. Imagine the shame and embarrassment of walking around the same school finding child made posters saying “Slave wanted- $40,000”? The insensitivity continues — get it together TCE!

How can the mayor and city council of Riceboro allow a part-time employee to abandon his/her job responsibilities to work the early election when it clearly conflicts with his/her city schedule? Are other employees allowed to seek outside job opportunities with total disregard to their assigned work schedule?

Well Midway has done it again... Voted NO to Plunder Box...a place that all ages are welcome.. So what do we get in return a New Package shop maybe.... Come on Midway give us back Plunderbox......

Will the courier please print the public reports of contributions for the local sheriffs election? Lets see who pulls the strings in the county.

I enjoy reading the church signs, but the one on 84 west has me confused, it reads, Stop chasing people who God ran away. Really??? Since when does God run people away? If anything YOU ran from God. Would someone let me know if I’m reading this correct?

Congrats sports editor. You managed to squeeze in one soccer story from a private school and only forgot to post this weeks games for the two in Wednesday’s paper. I can’t tell for sure because the machine I usually get the paper from was malfunctioning and ate my quarter. Did you know that last week the Bradwell tigers soccer teams had a live scrimmage against Ware County? It was nice. Good atmosphere, good crowd and a good game filled with drama that is usually associated with the sport. But I guess reading about baseball practice going on at exactly the same time two miles away is also exciting.

This goes out to the gifted individual that cut me off in front of Ameris bank in the black Chevy HHR. I slowed down to let a pedestrian finish crossing the street. There was no need to dart over in the right lane as I sped back up and almost take the side of my truck off just so you could make the light. I said a few choice words as I slammed on brakes and blew the horn. I got home and cooled off and remembered some good advice from my late mother who told me to try and have patience in life as stupidity knows no bounds. Hope you made it safely to your destination in Arlington Park. Oh and if you need to puff on a cigar while impressing your fellow motorists, leave the cheap ones at the liquor store.

The Liberty County Board of Commissioners should be ashamed to be spending our SPLOST funds to pave Azalea Road (East end of county) with only 5 homes on the road while there are many roads that could use re-surfacing. Money not well spent. Do not plan to vote for SPLOST in the future if this is the way you spend our tax dollars.
