VALDOSTA — I see people swimming and fishing in the Withlacoochee River below Clyattville. Will somebody from the city be kind enough to let us know in the paper if this is OK at this point in time or are they still dumping untreated sewage into the river? The water looks like chocolate milk instead of ice tea like it usually does this time of year. Thanks.

Fox News is denounced as “faux news,” “manipulative,” “agenda driven,” etc. C’mon, all media is agenda driven. Since the vast majority of network news marches in lockstep, why are all you “tolerant” people so threatened by one dissenting voice?

Don’t honk at me the moment the light turns green. I was waiting for the two pedestrians, that you couldn’t see, to safely cross the road. Pedestrians always have the right of way. Don’t honk at me again, or I’ll get out of my car and come talk to you.

As a Valdosta High alum, parent, and certainly a fan, I think the new turf at Bazemore-Hyder looks fabulous. A brilliant move by the Valdosta Board of Education. Perhaps some of the few complaining will take a few minutes to engage their brains and understand what’s really going on. Go, Cats.

The ranter is correct. When Hillary Clinton runs for president the race card will not be played. But you can bet that the gender card will certainly be played.

First, here we go again with tailgating and speeding. What does it take out of your day to move to the right lane and let someone pass? I do so because it’s the right thing to do. Second, so Fox “manipulates” its questions? If you think that other news agencies don’t do the exact same thing you are not watching with an open mind. I watch several news channels, Fox included, and combine the reports to get the whole story. Fox is no worse than any other.

    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!”

    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.
