VALDOSTA — To the person who said Dianne Feinstein said all vets are mentally ill, you are absolutely false. I would encourage you to check the committee meeting minutes from which this reference came before making such egregious accusations.

Make it to church on time, no excuses?! That’s exactly why those who don’t attend church think all Christians are judgmental and hypocritical. How about you welcome them, say you’re glad to see them, hope everything is OK. Maybe they had a sick family member, maybe they had car problems, maybe it was just a bad morning. Come to my church; we’ll welcome you, even if you make the last five minutes.

I wholeheartedly disagree. I’m a reader who submits raves often for wonderful people, services, and experiences in our community. I go out of my way to ask people for their name so that I can recognize them for their great service and attitude in our paper. It’s always neat to see the person later with a cut-out of the article in their area. It gives them a sense of pride that they don’t often get in this mean, cruel, hateful world of ours.

For those who are against the carry permits, perhaps you would be happier in Chicago, where there is a ban, on guns, ammo, etc. Of course they have the highest murder rate in the U.S.A., as do other places that ban guns. It is places where guns are carried that have the lowest rates of violent crime!

Thank you, Rolla Henderson, for your article in Sunday’s Times about the decline of our great country. Your thoughts are right on, I’m sad to say.

Thank you South Georgia Medical Center for holding a free skin cancer screening at the SGMC Berrien Hospital. It was very appreciated and all the ladies were super nice who worked it. Thank you, SGMC and Dr. Cole!

    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.
