There used to be two things that were sure in life: death and taxes. Then came Comcast, so we have adopted No. 3: Comcast raises their prices every year, just like death and taxes. Now you can add a No. 4 to that list: CenturyLink. They raise their prices maybe two, three times a year. They add taxes to your bill every other month, it seems like, and nickel and dime us to death. I don’t know what’s going to happen here, but I think I might go to a cellphone.

I am a taxpayer. I read your paper Wednesday about the proposed trip of the city council to Kenya, and also add two more there because you have two more representatives, the mayor and city manager that would go, and that’s a tidy sum of money.  And then look over on the other flip side of the coin, the Liberty County Development Authority is hiring a lawyer to lobby for extending the MidCoast runway … And all of that professed to be taxpayer-free money, except the Liberty County Development Authority. And we taxpayers, we know that there’s no way all that’s going to happen on the amount of money that was printed in there.

I am proud of the military facilities they have for the military here in Hinesville, in Liberty County. But what’s wrong with Liberty County that they can’t get medical facilities as beautiful as in Richmond Hill? The doctors are going to Richmond Hill, Jesup, Brunswick and other places, and even Pooler. But Liberty County can’t get off the pot to get nice, nice medical facilities. Can we get good doctors in Hinesville? Let us know. We need to know and get better in Hinesville. We pay the taxes.

Boy, it sure is a good thing to see honesty, integrity and trustworthiness in the Long County law enforcement. I mean, come on people — this is the 21st century. Let’s get real. We don’t do the kind of things that they’re saying that has been happening in Long County anymore. Long County needs to grow up.
