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 you people out there by the railroad tracks on Eunice throwing eggs at people’s cars again. If someone caught you and beat you then they’d be in a world of trouble. You parents need to keep your children home at night because they are going to get hurt messing up people’s cars.
In response to the caller who said Obama voters need to wake up: Yes, I voted for him. Stop your madness. What did Bush do for the country? Ignorance and intolerance will never succeed.
My doctor wrote me a prescription and Winn pharmacy filled it for all my diabetic supplies, to include the meter.
