The children are getting ready to go back to school, and I hope that the parents will sit down and talk to their children about how to behave on the bus whether they’re elementary, middle school or high school. They have to sit down in their car and behave, so why not teach your children to behave on the buses? Their life is in danger. They don’t have a seat belt on. If they’re distracting the driver, then the driver could very easily have an accident. So parents, please teach your children how to behave on the buses. If you’re called because your child is acting up, please don’t say, “Well, my child wouldn’t do that,” because you’re not there and you don’t know. I have talked to the bus drivers who have everybody’s children’s lives in their hands, and they do a pretty good job.

I believe the people in the city of Hinesville would love to see some competition to replace Comcast or have an option to select another company besides Direct TV and Internet service and phone service. I would like to see the city council look in to providing somebody else to provide a service to us besides Comcast or a choice other than Comcast. Let us make a selection just like the phone companies do.

If the United States does not stand by Israel, we will not be blessed as a nation. Read your Bible.

When you have the weekly crime map in the newspaper, and there aren’t any street names in there at all, then you have no idea where the crimes are located. What good does it do? Please put the streets back on the crime map.

I understand ecology and all of this has been pushed down our face, but I would like to know why the EPA hasn’t sought after the schools in Georgia for opening schools in August, the hottest month of the year, and running air conditioning constantly. My grandkids have to wear jackets in the school because they keep it so low, but we see that they’re not that cold because they’re required by law on a certain rate. Why are they allowed to open schools in the hottest month of the year if they’re so worried about ecology?
