The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — Valdosta has to complete the projects on the referendum in accordance with state law. They also have environmental agencies and current lawsuits that will make sure it happens. The increases in rates may cover the new debt already used and the million dollars taken out of the water and sewer fund every year but not new debt. Use your vote to change management and the council and let those not up for election know you want change. Vote for SPLOST to fix the problem and for the rest of the community that has important SPLOST projects.

To the Wildcat fans who tailgate on Jane Street. Come on people, clean up your mess! This is disrespectful to your city and to the team.

Important message again. If it's in my yard, then it's not bothering you, specifically regarding campaign signs. It’s only September and people have already started with the dirty politics. A sign won't determine who wins but removing it without my permission may determine if you get charged with possession of stolen property. Now may the best candidate win!

You must lead a sad and bitter life when all you can complain about is cars parked on a lawn that you don't even own. You ever thought to mind your own business? What a pathetic, whiney nation we have become!

The condition of the library shows the incompetence of our elected officials. My house was built in the ’60s also and I fix things as they are needed instead of waiting for them to become a disaster.

Thank you to the person who confirmed the laws for pedestrians and bicycle riders. The only thing worse than a know-it-all is a know-it-all that actually knows nothing at all. Bikes are considered a vehicle. So unless there are sidewalks available, bicyclists ride with the traffic and pedestrians walk against the traffic.

If you live in the Springhill Subdivision off Studstill, please keep your house and car doors locked. Report the crime no matter how small the theft. Police can’t increase patrols in our area if they aren’t aware of a problem.

Why do Valdosta students, from Wiregrass Technical College, graduating in December, need to go to Douglas at 10 a.m. on a work day to graduate? This makes it very difficult, if not impossible, for family and friends to attend. These students work very hard, and they deserve to have a proper graduation. This is a poor way to honor these students.
