VALDOSTA — Please don't punish an innocent dog for your neighbor's negligence. It may be wiser to call the police as I'm sure the owner is breaking at least one law by not having his dog on a leash. There is no need to send another helpless dog to the shelter.
I totally agree with the article in the Sunday Business section. I, too, have experienced the same problem at a chain pharmacy here in town. They make it nearly impossible to obtain an over-the-counter allergy relief medicine. If you are not a customer, then you can't get the medicine. You might as well just suffer with your allergies or spend a chunk of your paycheck going to the Dr. to get a prescription. I won't be back either!
Who is in charge of the traffic lights in this town? Some are red for over 2 minutes and stay green for barely 15 seconds. Left turn lanes at intersections where few cars even turn and at the busiest intersections in the city, the left turn arrows do not exist and you have to sit through 2 light changes in order to even make a turn. Mr. City Manager, you need to look into this matter. Valdosta is one of the worst traffic flowing cities I visit and most are much larger cities with more cars.
Are we to become like Florida, where the old man used his carry permit to shoot a man texting in the movie theater? This is just a glimpse of what is to come. If you want 1,000 extra police officers, go to the academy and do it correctly, or join the border patrol, to do something really useful. What is not needed is a bunch of senior cowboys, judging who is bad by how they look or the music they listen to.
