VALDOSTA — If public recognition of your son and daughter-in-law is so important to you, then take out a celebration ad in the VDT. More people will see it. If it was that important to them, then they could have requested an alternate graduation ceremony offered by VSU.

A big shout out to Kathryn and all the other ladies at PRBC Daycare. They are awesome. They stay late many days for my child alone. When I get stuck at work they always have my back. They are so loving. I am blessed to have them. They make this working Mama’s job a lot easier.

To the writer that says they don’t have the time nor money to cut their grass — you need to move into an apartment. It’s all about property values and respect for your neighbors who do care about their yards. I live next door to a renter that hasn’t cut their grass this year. Laziness!!

To the atheist and Christian haters out there listen up. If you’re right about your beliefs that there is no afterlife, no heaven, no hell, then no one has anything to worry about. But if you’re wrong, you’re the ones that just might have a problem. Life’s about choices. We need to make good ones.

In regards to the Blue Pool neighborhood, the city needs to go in there and clean it up, paint the curbs where no parking is allowed and trim the grass. Make it look like a  nice neighborhood. Don’t let it look like a state of disrepair please.

Where is the “like” button for Dr. West’s piece in Thursday’s paper? A lovely boulevard has been turned into a “what the heck were they thinking?!”

If you do not pay your mortgage, you will get behind and your home is foreclosed and removed. Same goes for your trash. You don’t pay your bill, they stop picking your trash up and then your can will be removed. Stop blaming Advanced Disposal because you neglected to pay your bill. These guys are running a business not a charity. Great job, Advanced Disposal. I am very pleased with your services.

    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.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.
