Regarding Sunday’s paper, we need more industry instead of relying on the military. We have a beautiful industrial park at the Tradeport, so let’s use that.
As a citizen and property owner in Hinesville I’m glad the fifth brigade is not coming. Our town is too small to handle the traffic as it is. From where I live on any given day it takes me five to seven minutes to get out on 196.
I been here living in Hinesville for 30 years and never had any problems with mosquitoes until now. I’m just wondering why they aren’t spraying or keep waiting to spray. The mosquitoes are getting bigger, thicker. Pretty soon they’ll carry us away.
