Hinesville has changed- it's not for the good of the community...I moved here 13 years ago;fell in love with the Hinesville. I enjoyed the small town atmosphere and peaceful environment. I couldn't wait to wake up day after day to stop by the deli and converse with everyone in line.

The city was growing, the realtors were selling homes, schools were going up, western sizzling was the spot on Sundays, and I could sleep at night when my children were at the movies or picking up a late night snack from one of the fast food restaurants..

I ran from a town that was racist and divided! Now I see that same thing happening here...The town I ran from is now empty, business and builders have left the area and the only people left are seniors whose kids refuse to return to the town to take care of them because there are no jobs, the school systems are awful...there's nothing for young people and the seniors are losing their homes because they have to stay in the nursing home..(they take your home to cover expenses)...

Hinesville wake up..we have a great community but hatred and envy is tearing Liberty County apart. You are leaders for a reason...to lead...If you cant work together and present a united front...resign.. we need leaders that can work together to lead us into 2013..

I like to think that we still have "our southern hospitality".

I suspect that society everywhere is in decline.

Our moral slide continues.

You see, you have some people in this County, that was raised to be prejudiced. This has has been taught, from many generations going down to the youngest of offspring. People refuse to change with the time for many reasons. Fear of change, Too Old To Change, Too Proud To Change, to stubborn to change, and don't want anyone to come in this town to make any changes. A lot of people here in Liberty County think separate but equal is good enough. But as complacency, and apathy grows in Liberty County, and the Racial Divide continues, this town is heading in the same direction as the town from where you left. The ONLY reason the County is hanging on is because of Ft. Stewart. Had it not been for that, Liberty County would have already reached that demise many years ago.

Until the status quo stops quantifying race as an affliction or social standing; the ingorance will continue. For some reason being an American is not good enough. Many ethnicities insist that they be identified with the appropriate subculture. Please do not misunderstand my point; there is nothing wrong with identifying with ones past however, until we figure out a way to stand as one, the divide will continue.

I've been here for 31yrs also & I'm shocked that we need to be having the "race" conversation at all in the 21st century, but then again I was shocked that we had to have it 31 years ago!

It should always be remembered that racism is a 2 way street, and a rather narrow one at that...

sebekm,

A lot of others got fired too. I'm sorry that Lovie hasn't gotten a second chance as head coach yet. He did a pretty good job while at Chicago. He has been to the playoff on several occasions.

How about Jim Walsh Jr. getting replaced this year?
