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.

    How in the world could any pastor allow men to play on their church softball teams at Freedom Park and almost the whole team doesn’t go to church there or anywhere? Isn’t that against the rules?

    Thank you, Mayor Gayle, for hitting the nail on the head about lack of funding to repair the Wastewater Treatment Plant. When citizens vote against raising revenue, then the only alternative is to increase water/sewer rates. Mayor Gayle, we appreciate that you care for our city’s elderly and those on fixed incomes who can’t afford a doubling or tripling of their water/sewer bills. SPLOST is funded by out-of-town sales tax, and protects the most financially vulnerable of our citizens.

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    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.
