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:
The world is in an uproar. The atmosphere is, too. One world government is coming and only the strong will survive. And each one that does survive is going to be done by prayer. So let’s just be kind to each other and heal the nation.
I wish the city would look at the safety and the quality of life that’s being disavowed on Inwood Drive and Timber Ridge Trail by those three basketball courts. They’re on the edge of the yard where the kids are completely in the streets, drawing crowds from the whole neighborhood and parents are totally oblivious. Parents have them away from their front door and their house and the rest of the neighbors have to worry about their cars and their property.

Calling all citizens of Midway, Georgia: We need to pull together and find out why we have outrageous electric bills. I’m asking the citizens, let’s get a petition together and find out why these prices, electricity bills, are so expensive and definitely how we can try to get someone else to help us, maybe another company in the city of Midway. The prices are just too expensive and outrageous. If the citizens are concerned, let’s get a petition going immediately.
Yes, this is to the person that reported the fire in Gum Branch. I’ve lived here all my life and have never seen a railroad so get your location straight.
When these high schools call your house, a private caller shows up. But when you call these schools and you have a private number, you have to dial star 82 so your number can’t be noticeable.

Have you noticed that these foreign companies that come from England, like JCB, they don’t let the unions come in and tell them what they have to pay and what they have to do. They just try to do right by their employees. That’s all you need. You don’t need the unions nowadays.
