VALDOSTA — To the ranter about the doctor refusing to see you over your Obamacare coverage. Welcome to the new normal. Doctors who would rather have political reasons and financial backing that oppose the law will refuse to see you because they’re not getting paid any more. Meanwhile I know a few good doctors in town, who regardless of your ability to pay, whether you have insurance or not will still see you because they live by the Hippocratic Oath.

A big Rave for the Lowndes High School track coaches. They are the best running coaches that Lowndes County has to offer!

The answer to the question why doctors in Valdosta stick together and won’t accept Obamacare is simply answered in one word. Greed!

The “Guns Everywhere Bill” also prevents the police from asking to see a gun carrier’s permit. So anybody can carry a gun and the police can do absolutely nothing.

Yeah, boy, our justice system at its finest. How is it that someone can be put on probation and break it, and get more probation? Then break that probation, go to court and get more probation. Community service only works when someone can’t sign all the hours for them. Bring back work camps please!

Stolen right off my porch — a one-of-a-kind redwood hanging planter from California. I’ve had it about 30 years. Its redwood so it will last forever. Whoever took it, if I ever see it, I will take it back.

To the person complaining about someone being late for church. It appears that you are going to church for the wrong reasons. A devout Christian does not set up in church and clock people in and out of church. Have you heard of the “Book of Life,” my name might have a T for Tardy by it, but your name probably will have an A for Absent.

    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!”

    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.
