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:
I saw the cutest thing last Saturday: Santa and Mrs. Claus at the new pharmacy across from the hospital. I understand they’re going to be back so I’m not going to fight those crowds in Savannah.
Why can’t this county commissioners of taxes send out these tax bills in early November instead of right here at Christmas? It seems just like a bunch of buttheads in there.
How could the mayor of Walthourville get a pay raise of 50 percent when other workers in the city and county are not getting increases or even furloughs? He or she should be ashamed.
It is politically incorrect to wish each other a merry Christmas. But, today on the news, I saw President Obama has a big red ribbon in front of the White House on World AIDS Day. What part of this does not compute?
The city of Hinesville is telling us they have no money, but today I saw two classifieds for jobs. One of them pays over $19, which is very high pay for this area. And the regular employees, they can’t even give them cost-of-living raises.
