I would like to say I have been reading in the paper about how Mr. Donald Lovette is having another Love-It Production play. I would like to say to Mr. Lovette: Are you going to continue having those plays, or are you going to run the county commission as a chairman? Don’t take the county and use it for a playwriter. Run the county like it should be run. Mr. Lovette, focus on the county. We have seen mistakes that you have made. You haven’t stood up for people that you needed to have stood up for.

I find it very disturbing that the picture with Gov. Deal and his wife on the front page of Friday’s paper, they are the only ones holding their hands over their hearts, and it says everybody is doing so in the picture. No one else is. The soldiers are saluting the flag, but all of the other officials, nobody is holding their hands over their hearts for the Pledge of Allegiance.

How do you know the amount of hours on a county employee’s time sheet? How do you know the county employee was not charged leave without pay? Why don’t you worry about getting a job yourself instead of worrying about someone else’s job? All you know how to do is get fired and break up families.

To the caller who called Sound off reporting the county employees who are not working 40 hours a week and the boss who covers by paying them for 40 hours a week: Thank for calling it in and thank you, Sound off, for printing it. As a taxpayer of Liberty County, I think it is time for those in charge to investigate and terminate. Falsifying time cards at any company or government agency is a malicious act, defrauds the company and in this case, the taxpayers of Liberty County.

I wish that the city council and Fort Stewart would get their heads together and enforce the care of property for soldiers and civilians living off post in the Hinesville communities. We have multiple single soldiers living in rental properties, totally ignoring the upkeep of the outside appearance, and yet nothing is done about it. The code-enforcement people don’t have enough people to cover the city. The city council really doesn’t care because most of those areas that are being ignored, people don’t have a lot of money, so they’re at the mercy of whatever wants to be moved in. Plus, Fort Stewart is undisciplined when it comes to their single soldiers. They are afraid they might upset the apple cart and cause somebody to look at Fort Stewart. I suggest that the Fort Stewart chain of command start taking a good look at the soldiers and where they live and what they’re doing.
