Dear editor: It was never my intention to cause and harm, embarrassment or to bring about any undue discredit or embarrassment to any party by submitting my Letter to the Editor. I merely wanted to bring light to some problems I and other business owners had voiced in working with the Bryan County Board of Commissioners.
Editor's note: The following are from students in Lynn Keen's fourth-grade class at First Christian Academy in Richmond Hill. The letters, which were part of a lesson in letter-writing, are in reference to the large flag that flies over Hwy. 17 near the aqueduct courtesy of Tidal Construction Co.

Dear editor: In the state of Georgia, there are several thousand citizens living in Georgia's seven hospitals serving people with developmental disabilities and behavioral health needs.

Dear editor: Your paper allowed a letter from a Dennis Todd titled "Who's in charge in Bryan County?"
Dear editor: Let me begin by saying how disappointed I am in the editorial staff of the Bryan County News in allowing such libelous and slanderous accusations to be printed under the guise of a "letter to the editor" in the weekend edition of the paper.
Dear editor: I recently read an article about an award winning catch of a tiger shark during the course of a month-long shark fishing contest in Destin, Fla.

Dear editor: Why are we "testing" recycling? What would make it fail a test? Lack of participation? Heck with that. It's the right thing to do, just do it. And it's not hard. What's hard is having five bins in the garage, separating everything and having to haul the bins to the landfill or into some store in Savannah when they're full.

Dear Editor: I just want to say "thank you" to all the citizens in the Fourth District that voted for me and for the outpouring of support you have given me over the last eight months I've been campaigning.

Dear editor: I read with interest the letter of Mr. Bill Helms in Wednesday's edition regarding the American Legion. I'd like to clarify the issue.
Dear editor: In a letter I wrote published Wednesday, Nov. 10, concerning Richmond Hill's failure to contact American Legion Post 27 to participate in the Veterans Day ceremonies, it seems like Richmond Hill did try to contact me. A message was supposedly left on my answering machine, but I never received it. It seems like this electronic world has glitches. I wish to apologize to Mr. Steve Scholar and the city of Richmond Hill. Steve and I will come up with a better route of communication. Richmond Hill has always supported our veterans groups, but it was a misunderstanding ...
Editor, On Thursday, our great nation honored all of our veterans with parades and ceremonies around the country. I hope everyone thanked them for their service to our country.
