VALDOSTA — To the “real man” who doesn’t take lip from us womenfolk: You must not be married because a wife would surely never allow her husband to say such a “cave man” comment. Also, you should be more respectful since a womanfolk is how you were brought into this world.

I just want to give a huge thank you to Mr. Cary at Deep South! This is one of the nicest business owners you will ever meet! He shows what true Southern hospitality is! Good job to all that work for Deep South never once have I had trash in my yard or my can turned over! They

go out of their way to move my can away from the highway. Thank you again for all you do!

You can “believe in God just to be safe.” But here’s the rub, God knows if you are sincere and it will do you no good unless you have accepted Christ into your heart and truly repent of your sins. It’s not like believing in the Easter Bunny ...

To the person who is complaining about how many students who were graduating were honor students. Here's the reality: complain all you want but there’s nothing you nor anyone else can do. Of course we all have thought that they have made it too easy for those who just do not deserve to pass. That’s the Georgia school system. But instead of having negative thoughts of half the class who were honor students, how about having some praise for those individuals in the class who actually worked hard enough to deserve to walk with honors.

I live in the neighborhood where the ranter complained about the tires in the front lawn. It’s a shame that the ranter can’t have a grownup conversation with the people that own the house rather than taking the passive aggressive approach by submitting a rant in the paper. If I owned that house with the tires, I would immediately use more tires for planters just to make my cowardly neighbor more irritated.

Thanks to Van with Advanced Disposal for going above and beyond to help a couple remove items from their trailer at the landfill. It is appreciated.

    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!

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