    I would like to give two “thumbs up” to Lowndes County Commissioner Demarcus Marshall for recognizing that we must and can do business better with respect to the response time of the Lowndes County Fire Department. Numerous homes have been lost because of the long response times, and a county that insists that the current system is working.

    There is no scientific evidence that human activity is causing the planet to warm, according to Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore, who testified in front of a Senate committee on Tuesday. We are victims of propaganda. Arctic ice is up 50 percent this year with no change in sea levels.

    Will some folks ever understand the difference between weather and climate? Just because it is colder than usual at one time, does not negate the simple fact that globally average temperatures are rising, as CO2 content in the atmosphere is increasing.

    The Valdosta Industrial Authority seems to have home-grown management with limited connections outside the area. In order to attract business it needs experienced business people with broader networks, outside the state and  even the country.

    Are we going through this Lowndes Hawaii trip thing again? Yes, it was approved. It's not mandatory and no one goes for free. The kids are given plenty of opportunities to raise the money for the trip, end of story. The chaperones, bus drivers, etc., may not be paying that much per person but they aren't going for free. Yes, $2,000 is a lot of money. But think about the airfare alone! Again, if you don't like it, don't send your kid.

    Why is it when I call the VLPRA office I always get the answering machine with a message about games being canceled in November?

    Visitation at funeral homes is a great way to show support for a grieving family. Please break from the tradition of having visitors stand in line for hours to greet the family. Simply have family members disperse throughout the crowd and speak to the individuals that came to see them.

    I would like to commend Alyssa that works at Winn Dixie in Lake Park for always being so sweet and pleasant when I go in there. Very sweet young lady. We need more teens like her.

    There are so many people walking around talking on their cells in the stores and parking lot, that everyone thinks they are talking to themselves. It is dangerous and ridiculous that you can't do without a phone call for a few minutes.

    The argument that pot is natural so it can’t be bad is such a silly argument. Poison ivy is also natural, want to smoke that? The point here is that there may be other arguments for/against legalizing pot, but please stop using this one. There may be benefits, but do they outweigh the negatives? Most of cannabis’ benefits can be gained through its oil without smoking.
