Here are some of the issues being discussed by area residents. The statements were phoned in anonymously so we do no vouch for their veracity, nor do we know what motivated the calls:
I hope the person who designed the parking lot at Wal-Mart thinks things through. Are we creating a traffic jam or what?
If you want a real news story be at the post office Monday to find out how they throw mail into the trash and give military members' mail to the Arab next door.
I seen on the news where gas is $3.87 a gallon, but in Hinesville it's $3.98, $3.99, $4. Come on now, quit that gas gouging.
What is Barack Obama's name? Is it Hussein Barack Obama, Barack Hussein Obama or Barack Obama Hussein?
Just drove through Hinesville. Everywhere I looked there was a school bus in a parking lot. Does the board have so much money that drivers can use the buses as personal transportation? With the price of fuel our taxes will surely go up more.
The MPs need to deploy from the shopette down to 6th and 15th streets to direct traffic and clear up traffic jams right after PT.
The 6th Street widening project on Fort Stewart appears to be done. But apparently it is the same contractor that did Frank Cochran. What's taking so long?
I wanted to thank all the PTA members who understand that hot and thirsty band members deserve the decency of a free cup of water. I appreciate those who treat students with respect.
I just seen on the news where they are going to be investigations of mortgage companies and real estate agents. It is about time because I'd like to know how an agent can afford like 35 homes within a couple years. It can't be done legally.
We are in a recession and later we are going to be in a depression. Everyone needs to open their eyes and see. A depression is coming.
I'm voting Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.
Abortion should be left to the parents and their doctor. What's next, the government's going to regulate that? What about other elective surgeries? I wonder how the vote would go on that.
To the students that were fighting this afternoon at Bradwell, I'm sure it was really stupid and worthless. Just know that all you did was make it harder on the students that weren't doing anything. Next time, learn to just walk away.
I would like to know when and why Gilley's will be closed. I've heard a lot of rumors, but I have no information.
To the Sound offer that met two gentlemen, an African and a Mexican who later became Americans, their races did not change. The Mexican is Spanish and the African could be Caucasian or Negroid, which?
I agree they shouldn't have jacked the gasoline prices up the way they did before the storm. But instead of cussing and fussing, stop buying. If everybody would stop buying the price would go down and the industry would understand we're tired of it. Stop buying and start walking.
