    Valdosta and Lowndes County will solve the myriad of issues by hiring competent people from outside the "good old boy" network. Face it, folks here are not as sharp as people from outside the area (Albany doesn't count). Too many connections and vested interests, not as honest as they need to be.

    Be happy for the short time you spent on getting Obamacare. I, as well as most I know, have spent hours trying to get signed up and problems resolved. Still ongoing.

    Did you know that 92 million Americans are not working now? A large percentage are male, bread winners, and our president is busy filling out his basketball bracket?

    This raw sewage problem in Valdosta should be fixed once and for all. City council and any others responsible for our “clean” town should get their crap together.

    Rave for the employee at Sonic on Bemiss Road who helped me replace the dead battery in my car Sunday afternoon. He was a big help and kept me from being stranded.

    Who doesn’t try to contact a government business? I called the Medicaid department the other day. First three times, the recording said high volume call back later. Finally was placed on hold the fourth time. Sat on hold for 45 minutes. Then the same recording said to call back later; wasted 45 cell-phone minutes. Called back a fifth time and placed on hold for 30 minutes. Told again to call back later and was hung up on. I don't have a problem being asked to call back when call volume is less but after 45 minutes of holding!

    A friend of mine was looking for a place to have breakfast this past Saturday morning and we had the most wonderful pancakes, sausage and ham at The Church Street Coffee House  in Hahira. I understand they have an awesome hamburger. If you want a treat, have breakfast there this weekend.

    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.
