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.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    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!
