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.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    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.
