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.

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
