CNN broadcasted a news release last night about Hinesville, Georgia that was completely out of context and cruel to our community. I am enraged at the lack of real research done on the story and the completely false insinuation of Hinesville's support of General Cuculo III and our honored Troops of 3rd ID. To make it seem like our community was attacking leadership on Fort Stewart was disappointing to me. If CNN needs negative news, stick with the Health Plan saga and things that really need your help. Stop Lying and hurting communities that are striving to live, prosper, and succeed. Interviews were twisted and good, hard working, reputable people are embarrassed about the spin that CNN reported.
Hinesville is a growing city that is building as we speak in several areas. Any person who does the right research will see the new industries developing and the businesses are progressing. Local newspaper, the Coastal Courier, recently published a Business in Progress section that was pages long about the things that our community is developing and shows our positive growth.
The announcement that a 5th brigade was not going to be added to our community had its negative impacts on some large municipality developments/plans and and a few proactive builders who took a risk based on the expectation of a new brigade; however, we have always supported our soldiers and our great Generals that take on the responsibility of leading our spouses, children, and parents through war and serving our country. The news that the new brigade was not going to be added was a decision our community will conquer, but in no way does this community blame General Cuculo III or Fort Stewarts leaders and soldiers.
The news broadcast was based on isolated occurances where builders risked large debt for the possibility making millions of dollars. No one blames the builders, they did what any smart developer would do, and unfortunately they are suffering individually; because the unexpected occured. The video taken of the "ghost town" was a small area that does not represent the majority of Hinesville, where a few builders are definitely suffering.
Hinesville is a great place to live! I am publishing this blog, not as a Realtor, but as a supporter of the Hinesville community, who has lived in the area for almost 20 years. I am a past military dependent as a daughter and wife. I am passionate about our community and the positive direction that our military and local leadership has always taken us. We decided to raise our children in Hinesville despite pcs orders and opportunities outside of Hinesville. Our leadership deserve thanks, not cruelty and lies.
