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 motviated the callers:
This is in response to the person who called about Snelson-Golden’s Black Panther acknowledging the gang singing. You obviously were not at the program to know the entirety. Please get your information correct before you downgrade the school and the things it’s trying to promote.
In effort to celebrate Black History Month at Snelson-Golden Middle School, I created a play that educated our students and gave them an opportunity to display their talents while imitating many famous and influential African Americans. It is unfortunate that in the year 2011 we still have people who are blinded by ignorance and mentally stuck in the past. Our play simply showcased the events that took place in America from slavery until now.
Someone needs to check the lights at Liberty High. They don’t flash in the school zones even when the police officers are standing out there. That could be dangerous.
I’ve lived in many cities. I’ve lived in Hinesville for 20 years and I have not encountered a public works department that’s run by OMI that compares. You ought to see the public works departments in other cities. You call them and they might be there this week and they might not. You’re not going to get the city employees or anybody else you hire managed by the city who are going to do the work that OMI does. They respond and they work hard.
Thank you, department of emergency services, for your personal employment gain. Now a lot of people are about to be laid off because of you.
