I am from Waycross. It is safe in this town and people are friendly. I have traveled to many other places and people are the same

And trust me we have rednecks, we have uppity snobs and some really good and honest people.

And we thank G*d for convenience stores and discount stores and belks, jc Penney and all out boutiques.

It is enough. And we have less traffic. And our high schools have produced Ivy League students.

Thank you very much. And we also have many wonderful Churches.
