AMERICUS — Battle doesn’t reflect majority

I am going to say this one last time — Danny, jacob maybe a God fearing man, but he still does not speak for the majority of his neighbors near his store nor the majority of the people in Americus, that includes Koininia and Habitat. Census data denotes that you and yours are not the majority of people in the city of Americus or Sumter County. I am sure Mr. Battle means well, but only God knows his heart. Come to think of it, Judas was a God fearing man but somehow he betrayed Jesus. THE LAST WORD ON JACOB.

Supports Jacob Battle

In response to Elma Golphin’s reply to Caroline Adams concerning Jacob Battle: “Jacob is a majority of 4 now — he, him, himself and you.” Add my name to the list to make it 5.

Citizen appreciation

Allow me to thank the many citizens for your interest and input into how your Board of Education operates in Sumter County. While some may consider citizen input as being obstructive, I can assure you that it is my goal for those who fund our system to find a transparent system who is responsive to the needs of our students while being mindful of the dollars being spent.

We work for you, the taxpayer. I encourage your continued support of Dr. Roy Brooks and his vision to make Sumter County schools one of the highest performing rural districts in the state.

When will Sumter pass Sunday alcohol measure?

A Harris County passed a measure that would allow alcohol sales at  retailers and by the drink on Sunday.

This means grocery and liquor stores in Cataula and Fortson will be able to sell alcohol on Sundays after 12:30 p.m. and that  restaurants will be able to offer alcohol sales by the drink on Sundays.

When is Sumter Co gonna follow and step into 2012 Sunday sales will  boost tax revenue something seriously needed here in Sumter
