I just visited the Hinesville Fire Department. I had a non-operational smoke detector. They came to my house and replaced it free of charge, and gave me a new one, and I took a tour of the fire department. So anytime you think the Hinesville Fire Department is not supportive of the public, go visit them and you’ll see.

Margie Love, use what you have and make do article on Sunday Oct. 26 was very informative. Growing up in Long County with grandparents next to her family was a blessing. As she stated, count your blessings.

I just want to thank everybody that got up and went to vote against SPLOST to let these politicians know that we are tired of them spending money for projects that we don’t need, and won’t never need when the base closes —that is, Fort Stewart closing up.

A very loud and sincere “Thank you” to Liberty Regional Medical Center for their excellent and friendly and sensitive care that was given to me through my recent hospitalization.

It’s pretty good at our school. If you party hardy with the administration, then you’re likely to get promoted or get selected for a job. If you’re not a party person, then you don’t get selected. It’s a good ol’ boy network still alive in Liberty County.

Witness the exodus from Liberty County every day after work. You can blame the city council, county commission, hospital authority and board of education for their wasteful spending, empty buses, high-paying jobs for people not wanting to live here. And now, they want to punish those of us who stay and try to make this work by taxing us more.

I agree with the caller who called about the growth in Richmond Hill and Pooler. Hinesville needs to step it up and get some businesses here. Either the lease-holders want too much for the commercial properties and the buildings sit empty, or the land-owners want too much and the land sits empty. The growth in Pooler is amazing. It’s incredible how much they’ve grown over the years. Hinesville has grown very little in the 30 years I’ve been here. Something needs to be done about that.

I told my wife I had read in the paper the city was going up on taxes, the county, the hospital authority, the industrial authority, so we’ve got to move? That’s what it looks like it’ll boil down to. Maybe move out of Liberty County.
