Hey, SDA in your deforestation of the Mills property, apparently approved by the “tree city” Hinesville, the Veterans Administration and the Liberty County Consolidated Planning Commission, you missed several specimen pines at the corner of U.S. 84 and Memorial Drive. You might want to catch those trees, too, so it’s a total deforestation.

I own some land in Long County in the northeast section off of Elim Church Road, and I’d like to know what Long County plans on doing about four-wheelers just tearing my property all up. And every time you call the law, it’s a two or three hours response time from the sheriff’s office. Come on, let’s get real: the sheriff and deputies have a job to do, and if they don’t want to do it, then get out and let someone else in.

Yes, if the Coastal Courier is the official newspaper of Long County, I’d like to know why the Long County Sheriff’s Office doesn’t post a blotter. I mean, come on after all, I’d like to see why it takes three hours to respond when somebody calls 911 because you’ve got a four-wheeler tearing up your property. And these four-wheelers, they need to be kept off these roads — my tax dollars fix these roads.  

Would the city and public works please do something about the potholes on these streets? Highway 196 and Gen. Screven, Highway 84, pretty much all the roads.

Reference the rezoning that was in the paper Wednesday, first day of spring: It just verifies what the caller said. There’s already a plan in the mill, the city mayor and everybody knows about it except the taxpayer. Evidence of that is already in action. The public has no way of getting the word, and when they get the word and have the public meeting, nobody will pay attention to the meeting because the plans have already been made.

The city manager or whomever takes care of that drop box over in your parking lot across from the city hall area in that proximity: get a drop box that doesn’t take two hands to put a water bill in it. You have to hold the thing open with one hand and then try to keep the car steady, and then of course you’re violating the arrows in the parking lot.

Let the transportation director go. They can find him a milk truck to drive — that’s what he told the ones he fired and didn’t replace.
