VALDOSTA — You won’t get high around people smoking marijuana. But if you are that concerned, leave the area! Just like cigarettes, if it is legalized, people won't be able to smoke indoors. Get over it.

Never satisfied. Had the schools and businesses not closed, people would be fussing about their lack of compassion. Which is it: careless to open or ignorant to close? Personally, I thought it was great. The forecast was calling for more ice but it didn't happen. People around here don't know how to drive on it, nor do they have the tires for it. Thanks for taking precautions!

His royal highness appeared on Fox before the Super Bowl with O’Reilly and tried to answer the same tough questions that his royal administration dodges on a daily basis. He again blames Fox News for Benghazi, the IRS targeting conservatives, Fast and Furious, and all the other "unexplainable” topics he doesn't want to share with his "subjects.” Watch Fox News and learn.

There used to be a Long John Silver's on Ashley Street, but you didn't support it, and it went out of business. We built an Olive Garden, just for you. How often do you dine there?

I do not smoke. I see smokers all year long with a lighted cigarette sticking outside of their auto windows. They allow the A/C and heater to work with their window open. Why not keep the nasty smoke inside the auto with them? They could get more nicotine inside their lungs. Two buck chuck's worth !

If you want some excellent seafood, then Bubba Jax Crab Shack is the place to go. They have some of the best shrimp in Valdosta! If you haven't been there, then you don't know what you have been missing. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.

    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.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.
