VALDOSTA — Please charge at least a small rehoming fee to help assure your pet is going to a safer, loving home. The free ones are used and abused for bait/fighting, among other things. It is very much a local problem, as you may have read in the Times. They depend on you and if you can't afford to keep them, please find them a good home.
Can someone tell us why Hahira Elementary and Middle were not allowed to participate in homecoming week activities? Many of the other schools chose to allow the students to feel a part of homecoming week. Not Hahira. Participation should be county-wide!
Do not vote for another SPLOST until local governments cut out their own waste, misuse, and worthless departments and authorities. They have to prove they can be entrusted with the taxes they are already taking in before they can be given even more.
Thumbs down to those that don't call SPLOST a tax. The choice is a tax or a tax. The SPLOST tax is 1 percent on sales. Not a penny tax. But hundreds of dollars tax per year. The water treatment plant relocation is the crisis in "never waste a crisis.” If not in play, they would present another crisis to keep SPLOST.
Lowndes did not "run up the score" as many people seem to think. They pulled the starters and played JV and ninth graders for all of the second half. Do we expect these kids, who may not see the field again this season, to "take it easy?" Absolutely not. They deserve to play to the best of their ability just like everyone else.
The reason we don't have more sidewalks and bike paths is because this city caters to its upper class citizens who drive around in their SUVs.
