Here are some of the issues 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’d like to thank my church, Gum Branch Baptist, for the kindness shown to me and the help they’ve given me since my husband got sick. (The caller also singled out a couple people whose names we couldn’t get for help getting her husband a motorized wheelchair). God bless all my neighbors and friends.
Suddenly, after three years in office, Ms. Baker wants to share her views on education and all the time she spends working for children. Where have you really been these three years, Ms. Baker? I hope all candidates for office get three free campaign ads in the Courier titled “guest columnist.”
The parent who thinks her son is being harassed by the crime suppression unit and that it should be disbanded must think her child does no wrong. It’s because of people like that, that we have to have a unit like this.
