VALDOSTA — People traveling on Boone Dairy Road, please slow down. It’s a neighborhood, not a highway.

I see that Georgia Power just got another rate hike increase approved. The increase was necessary, they said, to pay for pollution-control equipment mandated by the government. Thank you, Mr. Obama, for making our lives a little more miserable. Didn’t think that was even possible after your “affordable” care act.

It is wrong for news to report who won any lottery without their consent. There is so much danger to do so. Evil is worse now than ever and it could cost someone their life.

Take a ride down Justin Drive in Hunters Pointe and see a fantastic display of Christmas Lights and decorations. Wow!

Every person, including Phil Robertson, has the right to express their views despite opposition. Many actions and lifestyles are considered sinful by the Bible. Christians celebrate this time of year to remember the birth of our Savior who came to forgive our sins.

Live on Touchton Road and there are no street lights. Contacted Lowndes County and Georgia Power about safety concerns and neither would even look into the situation. However, Georgia Power was more than willing to place a safety light on the premises for an additional $15 a month but warned there’s a good possibility they would bust my driveway with the heavy trucks. How hard would it be to add a couple of street lights to utility poles that already exist?

Going north on Forrest Street at the intersection with Perimeter Road ... the sensor strip has quit working and on occasion the wait is three or four minutes ... I don’t know who to report this to so I’m trying Rant and Rave. Thanks.

If you spot one of these lowlifes not putting their child in a car seat or seat belt, call the law! They don’t care about their child.

    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!

    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!
