Israel is not required to do any of that. Hamas doesn’t.”
“Thank you to all the polite young people working at our grocery stores and fast food places and other places. I’m seeing more and more of you around town. It is wonderful to see your smiling faces and hear your courteous remarks.”
“Thank you to the city of Vidalia and St. Paul AME Church for the cleanup on Third St. But also to the residents, be sure to continue to sweep your leaves away. Already somebody has raked leaves out there. The city is not going to pick that up. You need to pick that up and put it in your trash can. Help keep Third Ave. clean.”

“To the Lyons City Manager, the homeless man on Wilson Ave. that has a bull dog, she has got 2 litters of puppies where he has his camp at, plus she’s pregnant with another litter. Something needs to be done.”
