VALDOSTA — To the man, and I mean Man, that bought my daughter and my meal at ChowTown on Saturday, thank you so much, it was a surprise and flattering act of kindness. We will be back there the first Saturday in December, so maybe we can buy you a meal.

Got the flyer recently in mail about all the city/counties phone numbers. Did no one notice that in Lanier, Cook, Brooks, and Berrien's text, that "Education" is misspelled. How embarrassing to see "Board of Eduction" erroneously repeated that many times. What happened to spell check?

Someone explain to me why a restaurant has to have a food permit, but a church can sell food at their fall festival without one? What is the difference? It seems that religious themed businesses need to either lose the tax exempt status, or stop making money off their members. Jesus didn't sell fish and loaves.

I am reminded of Ronald Reagan every time I view today's America. We were in a bad economy, no one was proud to be an American, our government could not protect a foreign (middle eastern) embassy, we had a new government plan-Department of Energy, and the media said the Republican party was dead. So, to the person who said Reagan could not win the primary: I do not see a Reagan anywhere, in either party, today, unfortunately for America.

If you are talking on your cell phone while driving, at least slow down when going around curves so you can stay on your side of the road.

Can someone help, please. The two flags flying on the east side of the 600 block of North Ashley Street are both badly faded with one split into rags. This is a disgrace to everyone in the USA. Both need to be removed or replaced.

    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!

    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.
