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 motivated the callers:

All businesses should have a rule: No use of cell phone while conducting business with a customer, service representative, a teller or at the cash register. Come on, folks, you’re holding up the line because you can only use one hand. Be smart.

Coastal Courier, could you please print a copy of the documents showing the cost of the city of Hinesville’s workshop at St. Simons Island? I think the taxpayers would like to see it.

I was just wondering if someone can tell us what’s going on with this redistricting for the city election coming up.

The Hinesville police need to stop harassing my 16-year-old son on Glenn Bryant. They harass him all the time. He’s going to school, catching the bus at 6:30, 7 o’clock in the morning. They need to stop harassing him.

Since the city doesn’t mow or cut the grass and weeds along the ditch lines anymore, will they be transferring that land back to the original homeowners?

I’m sick and tired of reading about Troy Davis. He was found guilty by a jury of his peers, which included blacks. His appeals were heard and denied, including the Georgia parole board, which has black members on it. Davis is now where he belongs. Why not let both families live in peace now?

To the caller who called about half the people being inducted into the hall of fame being white and saying it’s a good old boys’ club: No, it’s not a good old boys’ club. It’s called affirmative action.

I’m glad that I live in Long County. I think that, from personal experience, the Long County Sheriff’s Office is the best. They’re very professional and they do their job exceptionally well.

How many people out there can remember when game shows only gave away American cars?
