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:
Please stop discriminating against us visually impaired people. The shaded area in the TV section is impossible for us to read.
It’s Thanksgiving and I’m staying at mom’s. She’s got cable. I have satellite. Her TV guide is a slow process. I can’t look up what’s on quickly. Plus, she’s paying a bunch of money and doesn’t have many channels.
If you vote for a sheriff’s candidate for race alone, then you shouldn’t be looked on with pity. Pity is for those who can’t help themselves.
Why is the Long County animal control vehicle not marked? Is it because animals can’t read, or because it is for personal use after hours?
Out of the blue, people on welfare are living off the government. Should they contribute organs that they don’t need to help the sick?
I agree that gas prices in Hinesville and surrounding areas are very high. And yes, I would ride the bus, but the system doesn’t come out to Gum Branch. When they don’t stop, how can I get on?
To the Hinesville postmaster and commanding general on Fort Stewart, can you please build a new post office on Fort Stewart?
Upon returning to Hinesville I read where two deputies were commended for participating in the March shootout. I agree with the commendations, but want to point out two Midway officers were involved too, Chief Morningstar and Officer Rich.
