VALDOSTA — The rant about the arts center is correct with the parking, etc. More of us would attend if parking were more available. Of course, let's not forget, it is of less importance than sewage, traffic lights, paving streets, roads, etc.

Now let me see Valdosta Georgia is- Winnersville USA - no - Title Town USA - no - Sewage City USA - I got it! Now this moniker will stick! (Or should I say smell.)

I live in Valdosta and I think Florida residents deserve a huge rave for boycotting Valdosta because of the sewer spills that affect their communities. Our local government officials need to learn that their actions (or rather inactions) have consequences.

Valdosta Daily Times: Please tell the public again what the mayor, city manager and council are doing and going to do to stop the sewage flow to South Georgia and North Florida. Then all will be well in Winnersville.

There is probably very little that can be done about the sewage venting in this area in the short run. But those that sat on their rear ends and "Permitted“ all the development over the last 30 years should be sent packing! In government no one is held accountable anymore.

Withlacoochee is an Indian name meaning crooked river. That name was not given as an approval for crooked mankind to contaminate it. But too many think it's OK, making Withlapooppee a better descriptive name today.

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.

Thank you so much to the woman who turned in my husband's wallet at Winn-Dixie on Ashley Street last week. It's nice to know there are still people out there who will do the right thing.

    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.
