VALDOSTA — About drug testing for food stamp recipients: as a food stamp recipient, I have absolutely no problem with drug testing. Why should the taxpayers pay for our food if we use drugs? People who work have to have drug testing so why shouldn’t we? If we want to do drugs then we should provide our own food!

To the pregnant parent in the school parking lot that was complaining about some person smoking, if you have a problem with it, then go sit somewhere else. We need to go back to having smoking and non-smoking areas like we used to instead of trying to outlaw them. I can sit in my car and smoke whenever I want to. Cigarettes are my free right and if you do not want your unborn child inhaling smoke, then don’t light one up! Have a nice day!

I want to rave about the continued care my mother is receiving by Dr. Zeigler, Dr. Ward and the third-floor nurses as well as the care she received from registered nurses Melissa, Michael and Roger in ICU at SGMC. Thank you and bless you for going above and beyond.

The rodeo was a great event for the area, but hopefully next year there will be more seating. Many people paid ahead of time and didn’t get to see anything.

You can tell a lot about a person by observing how they treat office staff and other first points of contact.

Thank you to the man that retrieved my debit card and turned it into my bank. I was in a hurry and forgot to remove it. Thankful an honest person got it. Would like to thank you in person but know that I am grateful and thank God for you. God bless you.

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
