VALDOSTA — Climateers, what are we going to do about El Nino and La Nina and sun cycles? They contribute to climate change more than anything else.

It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

I am amazed at how many people hadn't heard about the Azalea Festival. It was another great experience!

Do you really think they are going to come undue the Williams Street project? Sheesh.

In reality science knows little about how the climate works on a micro and macroscopic level to give precise temperature predictions. There are just too many variables. Logically the most significant variable is the sun, not humans. Today, we can not precisely predict the exact temperature in the near future much less over years and decades.

I would like to take a moment and thank Valdosta mall security and VPD. Weekend nights at the mall are horrendous. The juveniles are dropped off, no parents, standing around blocking stores making it nearly impossible to shop. I have noticed security on several occasions make these rude kids leave. Have you irresponsible parents taught your kids nothing in the means of respect?

Get your facts right before committing. Winn Dixie is not taking over Harvey's. Harvey’s, Food Lion; and Winn Dixie is all owned by Bi-Lo. Harvey's sold out to Food Lion and Winn Dixie was sold to Bi-Lo. Bi-Lo now owns Food Lion. All Bi-Lo is doing is using the well known names.

I don’t know what in the world happened to the beautiful right of ways in the City of Lake Park, I used to ride home everyday and notice how neat they were. Well, not any more! They look very bad now. Please make our city beautiful again.

    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!

    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.
