The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — Some kids still walk to school. Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they aren't there. Slow, and calm, down.

To the ranter complaining about the trash on Slater Street, I wholeheartedly agree. We have the same problem on East Brookwood Place. We have called the city marshall repeatedly.  

With campuses going tobacco-free and Florida attempting to raise cigarette pack prices $1, why doesn't SGMC promote health and savings by prohibiting tobacco use on their property?

Big rave to Pipkins Motors, the best experience I have ever had in purchasing a vehicle. Honest, fair-dealing sales staff. Excellent.

To the ranter concerning the LC Public Works and scraping of their dirt road. It is no consolation, but you are not alone in this. Not that it makes any difference, but is your road on the paving list? Our road on the north end of the county, has been on it for the last eight years, and it still has not gotten paved. We call, they say that "we have not gotten the right of way to pave it signed over to the county.” Well Lowndes County, when was the last time you followed up with anyone?

My family has lived in Valdosta for 45 years, and I have never seen as much trash and litter on the roadsides as there is now. What is happening, and why?
