VALDOSTA — To harm or kill an animal means you are a cold-hearted animal. I hope it eats at you the rest of your life. Cruel and inhumane.

I’m glad to see that someone is fixing up the old building beside the Clyattville school on Madison Highway. Can’t wait to see what goes in there. Looks 100 percent  better already.

You call it Obamacare. I call it Obamadon’tcare.

Advanced waste trucks need to slow down or be prepared for consequences. Driving 45 miles per hour in a residential neighborhood within 10 feet of small children just exiting a school bus is reckless and irresponsible.

We need to practice our Second Amendment right to carry weapons around with us at all times. ... We should prepare for the zombie apocalypse, alien abductions, North Korea parachutists, drug runners, and the government census takers to worry about. They’ll not take me or mine!

For anyone complaining about my lawn. I work 40 hours a week, go to school full-time, and I cannot afford a yard service. I will get to it when I can. I am not going to quit my job, or forsake my education just because of your opinion. It’s just grass.

To the woman at the counter who rolled her eyes at me as she zipped and moved her purse to the other side when the black gentleman walked up. Trust me, I was more likely to pick your pocket than he was.

Big rave to Amber at Cass Burch's service department! She did a great job taking care of me and other customers.

With all the issues facing our city, state, and country, I find it amazing people have time to worry about the meaningless issue of the Confederate flag!

There is no excuse for doctors offices not answering their phones when the office is open. I can let it slide once, but when on three different days, I’ve tried to call the office when you open at 8:30 and the answering machine comes on saying the office is closed and call back during regular business hours, which are  8:30, it’s unprofessional. Especially when I continue to call (on all three occasions) until 9:10 a.m., when someone finally answers.

I went to the free skin cancer screening at SGMC this past Thursday night and it was such a well organized screening from when I entered the door to when I was done. Thank you, SGMC, for offering such a great thing for the community.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    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!
