“People in Toombs County should be ashamed that only 1,975 out of 16,558 registered voters voted on June 15 for the Georgia House seat vacated by Greg Morris. These candidates are the people who will make the laws we live by and can put any of us in jail if we break laws we may not agree with. Get off your duff and vote for someone who shares your values in the runoff on Tuesday, July 13.”
“The onion festival arts and crafts area behind the community center should be turned into a dog park for 50 weeks a year. Then it wouldn’t be wasted and it would be very useful for the community.”
“ Like NFL player Carl Nassib, I am a very private person and I don’t want a lot of attention, but I just think it is important that the world should know that I am heterosexual, because the world cannot turn unless we know everyone’s sexual preference.”
“I want to thank Gov. Brian Kemp and the GA Board of Education for standing up for our country and our state of GA in saying that we are not racist. The democrats are trying to divide our country, spreading lies and hate. All lives matter, no matter who you are. Thank you to the 11 members of the state Board of Education that voted against teaching Critical Race Theory in our schools. I pray that other states will follow suit.”
“Thank you, The Advance, for the wonderful ‘Teachable Moment’ article every week. I always look forward to reading the very timely and educational articles. I want to express appreciation to the author for the time-consuming research that is necessary for each unique Teachable Moment.”
“I totally agree with the writer who said we need a traffic light at Lowe’s and Optim. It’s a dangerous place to pull out. It’s a wonder we haven’t had people killed there.”
“Last week we were on Hwy. 280 pulling a camper, had 2 tire blowouts. Toombs County law stopped to help. He called in a coworker and they took care of the problem. It was a hot job. Positive output for cops. There are good ones out there. Many thanks to you guys.”
