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:
There was a law passed in Georgia that prohibits smokers in all buildings, like stores, restaurants and bars. I would like to know why, on Fort Stewart, the building that leads to Club Stewart still allows smoking. When you leave that building, you smell like smoke.
I was driving on the road while ago and saw a man driving a $100,000 car or more and he lives in a trailer park. Now, if I was going to spend $100,000 on a car, I surely wouldn’t be living in a trailer park. What is wrong with these people?
I wish that someone had warned me before I purchased a puppy from Rye Patch Kennel only to have it pass away 24 hours later. I wonder what the Department of Agriculture will think about that — and the Better Business Bureau.
I was at city hall — the new Taj Mahal — last week and I saw two OMI employees carrying and watering flowers for each of the offices. Is this what our public works gets paid to do? Isn’t there more important work they could be doing, or does city hall need personal maids?
To the Monroe Street caller, did you call dispatch and give a description of the ATV rider? Midway police are the only ones who enforce this state law. It’s funny how Midway citizens want their police to enforce some unpopular ordinances and turn a blind eye to others.
A rental company accounting service and a Mary Kay cosmetics service being run out of Midway City Hall. That’s very interesting, don’t you think?
There would be a lot fewer families living in poverty if they’d quit having kids. If you are living on government assistance, what gives you the right to keep popping out babies that someone else has to pay for?
