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:


It would seem like with all the furloughs for state employees that the school wouldn’t be building a $20 million school that was based on the assumption that a new brigade was coming here which we now know it’s not. That seems like a waste of money.

 Just a heads up to all you applying for energy assistance this year: They are not telling you, you have to go to the Dorchester Center not the senior center. Don’t waste your gas.

 Attention Frontline, soldiers are not given the Purple Heart. They earn it and are awarded it.

 Say what you want to about the mayor and city council going to St. Simons, but I know for a fact our councilman, Keith Jenkins in District 4, did not go. He traveled back and forth.

I don’t understand why Animal Control doesn’t want to do their job. They don’t want to take care of the situation when the need arises.

 The city council does not see what at least one OMI worker does, especially the one that parks his truck at a park here in town and then walks to a house where he stays two or three hours. I hate knowing that is what my tax dollars are paying for.

 I think it is a conflict of interest for a security officer and his friend to have to check where his wife is a manager.

 Many military children travel state to state, but they come here and school starts at the first of August. The board of education should change the date to late August so the children don’t have to go right back to school when they arrive here.
