The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — Just to let the person know that the light on Burton Avenue to Oak Street doesn’t take long if you stay behind the white like where you are supposed to stay.  It activates the sensor under your vehicle.

The service from Advanced Disposal is ridiculous. Trash pickup and recycle pickup are supposed to be on Thursdays. Trash pickup last week happened Friday and recycle did not happen until Saturday. They had several months to plan and increase their trucks and drivers but did not do it.

Just because someone could be a grandmother at 35 doesn’t mean a thing. She could have had a child at 17 or 18 and her child had the grandchild at 18. Just because you maybe didn't want a child till you were 30, doesn't mean other people wait and it also doesn't mean they were pregnant out of wedlock.

Valwood is a private school. If they choose to allow some students to attend on scholarships, that's their right. It's also a big way to garner attention for the school and increase enrollment. Everyone wants to go to a winning school. I do agree that if people are getting athletic scholarships, then there should also be academic scholarships. But again, if you don't like it, there are two  other high schools and many middle and elementary schools to send your child to instead.

To all that have waste piling and nowhere to take it because dump sites are closed and the new garbage company doesn't show, trust in our leaders. Saw in the paper they said it's safe to dump extremely large amounts of waste in the Withlacoochee. Seriously, instead please Keep Lowndes Valdosta Beautiful. Fire our leaders.

VSU is spending over $30,000 to celebrate a guy who has been here for nine months, but won't spend any time or money to celebrate a guy who was here for 40+ years. What a shame. We miss you, Chef Earnie, you deserve better.

Yellow church van people! You seem to miss my point. I'm not complaining about the meals. I'm complaining about the driver coming by so fast! Some of these children are very small and can't chase down a moving vehicle!

When will the taxpaying voters realize that they need to voice their opinions to their elected politicians concerning the trend toward re-shaping the United States toward a European model of socialism and an “anything goes” society structure? Merely griping to each other is not enough!
