Here are some of the issues being discussed by area residents. The statements were phoned in anonymously, so the Courier does not know if they are true, nor what motivated the callers:
I just want to thank Thomas and Donna for adopting me as their grandmother. They come by and check on me at least three or four times a week. I’m 66 years old.
This is kudos instead of complaints. The commander of the VFW has done an awesome job the last two years. His charitable acts and events have put the post on the map in Hinesville. We all hope he plans to stick around.
This is for the little gossip clichés in Gum Branch, the old ones and young ones: Quit telling lies on people just because you are jealous. You have the same chance in life as everybody else.
I wonder what it was that the Hinesville Police officer was doing that made his car swerve off the road twice while I was behind him. If it had been me, he would have pulled me over to ask what I was doing.
This is to all the tax-and-spend politicians in Hinesville. I’m ready to buy some tea bags and start getting you guys voted out. I’m sick of high taxes and you guys spending, spending, spending.
Black History Month is something blacks choose to celebrate because blacks have not been acknowledged properly in past history books. It’s a way to let black children know of the positive accomplishments of their ancestors.
To the caller complaining about Black History Month: You got 11 other months and you have everything else, let us have our little ol’ history month and it’s the shortest one of them all.
