Samba Permissions Problem

I have got Samba to work on redhat 7.3, but I am having a few problems with the file and folder permissions. As soon as a user makes a new folder, only that user has the right to write to the folder, the rest can only read the contents. I want all users to be able to write to the folders.

Another small problem, my users cannot see their home directories.

Below is what my config looks like.

#======================= Global Settings =====================================
workgroup = MISCGROUP
server string = Samba Server
netbios name = MySQLserver
hosts allow = 192.169.0.
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
security = share

#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
comment = Home Directories
users =%S
browseable = no
read only = no

comment = Management Documents
path = /store/management
valid users = @management
admin users = Chris, root
public = no
writable = yes
printable = no
create mask = 0765

comment = Group Documents
path = /store/documents
valid users = @management, @powerusers
admin users = Chris, root
public = no
writable = yes
printable = no
create mask = 0765
