In the "Democrats review legislative session" article, what exactly is meant by "Medicaid expansion," and how is it going to create 56,000 new jobs in Georgia and 3,000 new jobs in this area? I would like to see an article that explains more.

All property owners need to go up the tax assessor’s office and appeal their latest property tax assessment.

I want to thank Deputy Ashdown for the kindness and compassion that he showed me and my family last Sunday morning. He is a true professional and a credit to our local law enforcement.

Liberty County Recreation Department needs better-informed umpires.

Congratulation to the Long County Sheriff, Mr. Craig Nobles.

Coastal Courier, May 25, 2016, "Liberty, Long sheriffs lead early." Front-page news, right here. The Republican Party, Will Bowman running for sheriff. You didn’t do all that for Steve Sikes, did you? Boy, you’re not biased, are you?

Congratulations to all of the graduates who have earned the right to wear that gown and walk across that stage! Too bad that the majority of the Board of Education members, who should be role models, have not earned the right to wear the gowns they will be wearing.

Please stop stretching the school calendar and just let us out!

I just wanted to say thanks to Liberty County School Superintendent Dr. Valya Lee. Keep up the good work. You do put the children first in Liberty County!
