Just to set the record straight, Butch Palmer ("Time for moving beyond Section 8," Letters to the Editor, Jan. 3) does not speak for the majority of the residents of Richmond County. I have been a proud citizen of Richmond County for 45 years, and you couldn't pay me enough to live in Columbia County. It's just one big ugly strip mall now and apparently populated by narrow-minded people like Capt. D. Caudle ("Suggestion went over the county line," Letters to the Editor, Jan. 7). He shows his mindset by saying that first he reaches for his wallet, then his gun and lastly the Bible. Maybe if he picks up the Bible first, he will not need his wallet or his gun.
