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 see in the paper the electric company wants to go up on rates. Retirees are not going to be the ones to pay this. They can’t afford it. I expect to see a lot of deaths from heat-related injuries because they simply can’t afford to run the air.
Could someone please help me find a contractor to install solar panels on top of my mobile home so I can decrease my dependence on Georgia Power? I see it plans to raise bills again.
I don’t know who is in charge of fixing potholes on Lake Gale Drive, but they are not doing their job and ought to be fired.
I think all the county commissioners in Long County should resign. All they’ve done is raise taxes, and we’ve gotten no more services.
I’m trying to get off Fort Stewart without going to Hinesville first because I live in Pembroke, but all the MPs are sending me out the front gate, instead of the back gate. I can’t stand to be in this town.
I’m the one that called about the vehicle being bigger than the owner’s home. I will not mind my own business because this is what you call freedom of speech. Anyone that buys a vehicle that costs more than a home has no common sense.
I think it should be a law that all city council meetings should be held in the city and all county commission meetings should be in the county where the general public has easy access to it.
Looks like it’s time for another NAACP protest against racial profiling.
How come you can have a lawyer on TV, telling you to tell them you mean business, when he’s in jail? This ambulance chasing on TV is ridiculous
The Senate and Congress and Obama are failing us. Khrushchev said to destroy America, do it from the inside out. Wake up, America.
I wonder if the same people that voted for Obama will do the same thing for sheriff, not vote for his experience, but based on the color of his skin?
How could you get a heat stroke delivering mail in a car or truck that is air conditioned?
I agree with the person that said we got sheriff candidates that are not stating why they want to be sheriff. But we got some people running that aren’t even from around here and we don’t know who they are.
Listen up, Liberty County, running for sheriff is a very serious proposition. Think twice before you run for high sheriff. We need someone who is educated and knowledgeable about the law.
Would someone please list the qualifications to run for sheriff of Liberty County?
To the construction workers on Barrington Ferry Road, when you dig the ditches you need to make sure it’s covered up when they finish the job. We’re losing a lot of good tires on this road.
I’d like all U.S. citizens to Google the new postage stamp that has been ordered by President-elect Obama on the Muslim Ramadan.
