VALDOSTA — To the owner(s) of the seven-plus dogs in Druid Oaks Subdivision: no one can walk, ride bikes, or enjoy that neighborhood because of you. Isn’t having that many pets in violation of city code? City marshals, please do something about this.

There are two lanes turning left at the corner of Baytree and Gornto. That means you stay in your lane while turning left and I stay in mine. That does not mean you veer into my lane while you are turning and cut me off or almost hit me.

Good luck with finding the SPLOST money earmarked for the Remerton Mill nor what it has been spent on. That is why people are not going to vote for the SPLOST funds again. You just can’t trust the officials to do what they tell you they are going  to do.

I hope the Lowndes Co. School Board  does not  think we teachers are stupid enough to let this rest. We want to know why there were over $100,000 in raises given to four office people while the rest of us have had no raises, pay cut and furlough days. We want an answer to this.

Working in construction is a hot and tiring job, and if you work for yourself, it's a lot of hours. Please be considerate and not call for estimates or advice after hours, and especially not on the weekends. To do a good job, people need their rest. You wouldn't appreciate them calling you about your job, on your off hours.

First, to the local pharmacies that have cheap three-month prescriptions on popular drugs: thanks! The SGMC employee pharmacy charges more on a one month co-pay than a three month cash prescription on many of the same drugs at other stores. Now SGMC is forcing insured employees to use their overpriced facilities. Have your doctor write a three-month and take it to Harvey's or Walmart or other pharmacy after checking their list of inexpensive prescriptions.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.
