Here are some of the issues that area residents are discussing. The statements were phoned in anonymously, so the Courier does not vouch for their veracity, nor do we know what motivated the callers:
I see Georgia Power has gone down on the power. Good. Go down some more. We are working just to pay the power bill.
I’m a resident on Azalea Street. That Taco Bell near my back door should not have been built there. When school comes to an end next month, there’s going to be problems. Our city councilman for Azalea Street, think about what you did.
The ice cream truck used to get fresh ice cream. You can’t sell freezer-burned ice cream to people. That causes health issues. And come down on prices. $1.75 for a fudgecicle? That’s a shame.
City officials, do you know that verse in the Bible that says, “My people perish because they know not?” Well, now that you know right from wrong, you should do better. Don’t you think?
The chamber of commerce needs to pick a spot to have a gigantic Easter egg hunt because not everyone is military and can go on the Army base.
The Liberty Transit bus needs to put up more bus stops, especially on North Main Street, Garden Circle, Food Lion, Kroger, Liberty Square and many more, just to name a few. More people would ride. And don’t forget Airport Road.
It would be nice to have a nice bakery in Hinesville. There are so many empty buildings. What’s going on? Is the rent so high nobody can stay in them?
What’s happening to old Shoney’s? What a waste. Sticky Fingers would be nice, or Carrabba’s.
From the beginning of time, you can check history and you’ll see where one party tries to rule the other party in governing. It always leads to destruction. It’s the biggest sign that you will ever find about it’s the end of time.
When you listen to the Tea Party and not the heart of God, there’s going to be great repercussions.
This is in response to the person who called in about the Black Panthers, stating that the person needs to do their research. I think this person needs to do their research because the Black Panthers were the most vicious, violent, hateful group. They rate right there with the Ku Klux Klan, and I don’t think their hatred and prejudice should be taught in our public schools.
