VALDOSTA — All 25,000 airmen aren't at Moody so I think they will be fine.

I am amazed at the amount of Dollar General Stores being built around the area. I do have one question for the County Commission or county manager. Has there been a study on the traffic increase that will occur with the new Dollar General Store being built on the Lowndes County side of Walkers Crossing (122 and 135)? With the dangers that this intersection poses, I sure hope that our engineers have taken a proactive approach to mitigate the increase in accidents that will occur at that intersection.

I'm not sure what happened to manufacturing but I do know what happened to the agriculture. It was when those people with get rich quick schemes decided to turn beautiful and bountiful farm land into a subdivision. Planting houses will never replace planting crops.

His Royal Highness has given his loyal subjects and the rest of his kingdom a list of all the things he will be doing to us (not for us) in the coming year. I only hope that we can survive all this goodness he is heaping upon us. I don't think that Obamacare is working out like he planned, and his royal cabinet is not feeling the love either. I pray we can live through these next few years.

Pushing your husband to abandon his child from a previous marriage shows how jealous and selfish you are. Shame on you!

Remember, the solution for the global warming “crisis” was a global tax on carbon dioxide emitted. This was to be a tax on living, since we all breathe out the pollutant carbon dioxide. It appears God has a sense of humor and grace on people led by fools.

A big rave to Darris at Olive Garden for his courteous and professional service! I have not been to Olive Garden in almost a year due to bad service and experiences in the past. It is now under new management and such an improvement. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

I enjoyed the opinion of the Times dated January 23, 2014. The Industrial Authority is a waste of money. They can only spend our tax dollars to buy more land for empty industrial parks. They have not succeeded in bringing in one industry worthwhile in years. I vote to disband the Authority and save the tax money we are forced to give them. Check out your property tax bill.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    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.
