VALDOSTA — Law enforcement needs to sit on Patterson in front of VSU and enforce the 35 mph speed limit. Of course, they don't obey it either when they drive through there.

When are the owners of Five Points — the city — going to repair the parking lot in front of Moe's? It's embarrassing. Nobody cares anymore.

You people who hate Moody may now get your way. Happy?

I have to question the survey that parents were asked to complete for Lowndes County Schools regarding federal programs. How are parents supposed to know how the faculty and staff is supported by administration and the board, what programs are used in the classrooms, the effectiveness of programs that have nothing to do with our children? I think more information should be provided to parents before expecting us to answer this survey in the most honest, accurate way possible. I am active in my child's education, attend all events, and communicate regularly with his teacher. This survey left me at a loss for words.

Will some folks ever understand the difference between weather and climate? Just because it is colder than usual at one time, does not negate the simple fact that globally average temperatures are rising, as CO2 content in the atmosphere is increasing.  

Do you discontinue all school related trips because some choose not to go or can't afford it? There are multiple fundraising opportunities to help cover the cost of trips often times. I just sent my child off on an overnight field trip and I am so thankful that my child had the opportunity to go. Do I have a lot of money? No! But my child was worth it!

People, the band is going to Hawaii for a parade, etc. Parents pay for this trip. These trips are paid for well in advance, and the band is invited to these events. Please stop trying to take away this once in a lifetime chance for these kids.

    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!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
