“Liberty County residents please go out and vote. We will have the same Mayor because we have nobody who can beat Brown. Pastor Hayes keep your day job preaching and volunteering for the community.”

“The romanticized vision of Taylor Creek presented by Ashley Watson keeps racism and the second class citizenship of African-Americans highlighted and passively celebrated. The statement whites loved the blacks and the blacks loved the whites while at the same time telling the heartbreaking displacement story of the Frasier family uphold the subordinated foundation of African-Americans that gives rise to racists. Maybe the follow up is a more critical analysis of the government’s sanctioned actions further traumatized African-American families and crippled their economic freedoms.”

“Since Dr. Barbra likes chaos that would explain why people are moving from school to school to school! Chaos, chaos, chaos!”

“When two FBI agents had emails about candidate Trump - The president sent out tweet after tweet and wanted them fired.  Now that Border Patrol is emailing horrible suggestions and comments about the migrants and congressional persons - the president says nothing. What a narcissus and racist.  A sad day for our country.”

“Where are the professionals in the Liberty County School System? The faculty and staff dress code is unbearable, even at the BOE. While they’re stressing about the students, look at yourselves. I have seen too short dresses and skirts, too tight clothes, leggings, jeggings, T-shirts, and the list goes on. Then we want to talk about the tattoos and nose rings. When you look like the student what respect do you expect to get from anyone? Maybe uniforms need to be in place for the adults as well.”

“Dear Long County Schools, where are my child’s GMAS scores for the 2018-2019 school year? I have not received official scores via mail, email, or anything in between. Does the state not require scores be given to parents/guardians? If there is a specific thing parents need to do (besides jumping through hoops) to get these score, PLEASE make it known! I should not have to track down these scores by calling five million different people! When my child attended Liberty County Schools, scores were sent within WEEKS of testing, regardless of “re-tests.” I’m all about supporting Long County because the teachers are awesome. But keep parents informed!”

“Everyone like our land lord is cutting down trees but not taking the logs to the paper mill. They leave them sit and then they become fuel for wild fires and ecology changes that provide a home for snakes and yellow jackets. If you are interested in making some money and have a big truck and forklift these logs are located at Southway MHP off Joyner Road in Hinesville. For the land lord does not want to remove them and these logs are free for the taking.”
