VALDOSTA — Pay attention all residents of Lowndes County (including the cities). We voted for SPLOST, now they are raising our taxes anyway, instead of cutting back wasteful spending. Now it appears that the school board is joining in on wasting our tax money by raising the school tax for all residents. I suggest everyone start becoming an educated voter and find out what your candidate stands for before you cast your vote.
Imagine my surprise when I got to the intersection of Madison Highway and Patterson Street in the right lane and found out I couldn’t turn left anymore. Isn’t that progress in reverse?
If you have that much of a problem driving around Valdosta, maybe you need to learn how to drive. I am constantly driving around town and have no issues getting where I need to go (even going south on Ashley and north on Patterson). Just takes some common sense!
If one requires evidence that some of those Fox News personalities are plum loco please go to Ann Coulter’s website and read her article on how America’s interest in the 2014 World Cup is a sure sign of its decline.
Our family enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Ravine at Kinderlou while celebrating our parents’ anniversary last weekend. The food and service was top notch. Cathy and the staff exceeded our expectations!
Question? If employees are paid on the 15th and the 30th of every month, are they being ripped off? There should be 26 pay periods but you only get 24 checks. Getting paid this way aren’t you cheated out of a week or two? What can be done about it? This is awful for salary employees who are already getting cheated out of hours worked.
This illegal immigration and the “Dream Act” has really ticked me off. My son graduated high school last year and was denied the Pell Grant because of our income. We make too much for him to qualify and not enough to pay for his school. It seems to me if you’re not minority or illegal, you are out of luck. Also do you know how hard it is to get a job if you are white ? This is nothing more than discrimination against whites.
All the people who voted for Obama and wanted a change, well, I hope you like your change.
The new development on Jerry Jones, the city really needs to build a run-around for cars to get around cars going into that condominium. This is an easy process and the city should have done it in the process.
