“I see all the comments about Chick-Fil-A being closed on Sunday. I think it is a good idea. However, other companies are trying to make the same claim, just for one more day off. Hobby Lobby is an example. Chick-fil-A has a wholesome reason, but the employees at Hobby Lobby are just copying as an excuse for one more day off.”

“Are schools as safe as we think they are? We have so much bullying going on. I understand a BB gun was found in a student’s bookbag at Lyman Hall. It can be a BB gun today and a .45 tomorrow. What’s being done to ensure parents that safety precautions are in place? Why were parents contacted after school had been dismissed? I questioned did the school go on a lockdown? What’s it gonna take? A school shooting to do what needs to be done. This is a sad world we live in.”

“I was given the number for the EMA hotline during the storm. I called to get some medical help. The woman said she’d call me back, but to this day she has not called back. That hotline is a fail.”

“Everybody needs to contact their senators and congressman to pass a law to protect our flag from these home-grown terrorists.”

“The caller about Long County codes is absolutely right. They get what they want, act like you want. You can have 20 vehicles in your yard and trash all over and they don’t care.”

“After reading the Edwards evaluations in the Courier you can obviously tell this was a race based decision. There was no apparent reason why the city manager should have been removed for these type of evaluations.”

“If all your customers say please, will you please put the color back on the comics?”
