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:
I was appalled by Wednesday’s Sound off from the caller who wanted God comments moved to Sunday. You can’t just acknowledge God one day a week for your convenience, you poor soul.
If every month we pay garbage disposal, garbage collection and dry trash collection on top of our water bill, why then during our tax time do we have to pay a solid waste fee? Tax people, as Ricky told Lucy, “You’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do.”
To the smart aleck who called about the tailgater: I just bet you were cruising in the left lane, which is for passing, not cruising, regardless of your speed. If you were in the left lane and faster traffic was behind you, you were the one in the wrong and should have moved over.
One of my pet peeves is high school kids standing outside of stores and asking for money for their sports, instead of going out to work. I want to thank the Crown Rydaz group for having those kids do car washing and teaching them to work.

It’s another beautiful sunny day in Georgia, and I wish we could enjoy it, but the neighbor is always burning his leaves.
