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 read about the raises. Mayor Thomas said the amount of money is immaterial. Then why isn’t he satisfied with a 5 percent raise? And the rest of the article just sounds like baloney.
The price of gas on Fort Stewart is the same as the price outside the gate. So let’s start on Fort Stewart. They don’t pay taxes. Their gas should be cheaper and that will cause the stations in Hinesville to be cheaper. Come on, Fort Stewart, help us out.
