The garbage workers who work the 1000 block of Bacon Road, please come back out on Bacon Road and clean up your mess that you left from picking up the garbage. You left a big mess.
The word on the street is that the Long County Sheriff is having to do two jobs — sheriff of the county and resource officer at the school, and he’s getting paid for both jobs. Is this dedication or greed? You make the call.
