I’d like to talk about Forest Street here in Hinesville. There’s loud music and speeders. I would love for our city to do something about it, or maybe we need to call in Georgia State Patrol.

This is in reference to the sound off comment about furlough and taking breaks at Winn Army. The caller failed to mention that those that take four or five breaks a day are smokers. The federal government rewards those who smoke by letting them take that many smoke breaks. If you don’t smoke, you are only entitled to a 15-minute break in the morning and a 15-minute break in the afternoon. Maybe someone needs to file a discrimination lawsuit.

This is to the father that lives in Eagles Creek Mobile Home Park that doesn’t do anything for his daughter. In the end, you will suffer.

With all the homes in the area being foreclosed on by local banks, it seems they should be required to maintain the property to ensure that neighborhoods do not decline because of their appearance. Homes in our neighborhoods are becoming unsanitary, unsightly and unnecessarily dirty. As a concerned citizen, I believe police should have authority to check these homes to ensure all is OK inside and injured or dead people or animals are not trapped inside.

I think the Liberty County School System should require all report cards to be signed by parents, no matter if they’re in 12th grade or pre-K. All report cards should be signed by parents so they know that the parents looked at their report cards. Some kids that are failing hide their report cards and say they haven’t gotten it yet. I think it would help if all children were required to have a signed report card.
