VALDOSTA — Well, you can be mad that Hahira is growing just a little bit, if you'd like. I still see the same charming city I've always loved. While I would love to see the downtown storefronts be filled, we still need this new Dollar General. The current parking lot is a nightmare and accident(s) waiting to happen. The inside of the store is a wreck. Shoppers can't shop for inventory and dollies being in the middle of the aisles. I can't wait for the new Dollar General to open. Thanks Hahira for getting one!

My family was in an accident at the corner of North Oak and Bemiss Saturday. Our van was flipped on its side. I don’t know names of the bystanders, EMT, police, and firemen who helped my husband and offered comfort to my children until I could get there. Words can’t express how thankful I am.

Thanks to the guys at Sears auto center. I was putting off getting my car done and I needed tires and brakes. I would have left it all day at the dealer. They got me right in and had me done in two hours. Excellent! Glad they survived the closings.

Looks like the union rumors at SGMC may be more than just rumors.

To the person who purchased an antenna in place of having Mediacom, or DirectTV, please let us know where you purchased it.

In this day and time, when great customer service is rare, I want to give a big thank you to Kiana and Stephen at Steak n Shake. This past Sunday, there were 13 of us that went in at a busy time, they couldn't put us all together, but made every effort to get us close enough, that it did seem we were sitting together. Their service was excellent, we received our food faster than anywhere I've been with a large crowd and they were friendly and very professional. Thank you for this experience.

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
