Where will they go?

-- — What ever happened to freedom of speech, or is it only for certain ones? I think children and grandchildren will be proud to know their family lived by the Bible. Read it.

The ranter does not understand that a cold is caught from people inside a warm home, not outside in cool weather. Germs grow in warm environments. Kids need to be outside, off their behinds, running and playing!

Come on up Bemiss Road Mediacom. After talking with my neighbors we would welcome you with open arms!

There are 364 days until Christmas and some people already have their lights up!

Hey Inner Perimeter post office, how about connecting the south part of the drive way to the mail boxes to the parking lot? I think it would allow for better traffic flow.

Why have a dog if you are going to keep it chained up in the yard?

Good job planning out the detour going east while the overpass is being built on 84. Now instead of going over one set of tracks we get to cross over four. Relax about traffic going down 84. People drive through construction zones all the time.

Dear neighbor, if you are going to constantly watch me don’t give me an evil look when I stare back.

Rant and Rave is the eyes and ears of South Georgia. Thanks so much.

How could it not be to the benefit of the whole society for everyone to have access to healthcare? We need massive reform of our healthcare system, but the pharmaceutical companies and medical communities will never allow anything that might reduce their incomes in any way. They have the money and thus the control.

Thanks to all the restaurants that opened on Christmas for those who couldn’t cook dinner for themselves or live alone.  Thanks so much.

    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.

    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.
