    Hats off
    Hats off to all the folks that did a wonderful job on the “Thunder in the Hills” play to support the Sidna Allen home. It was good to hear both sides of the story and kind of make a decision on what you felt was true. A very well-told story. Hope the community will support it. Especially impressed with Mrs. Frances. You just want to go up and give her a big ole hug. Thanks for telling the story we have heard many times growing up.

    Why us?

    Trail improvements
    Kudos to the New River Trail Park staff who recently worked on improving the trail. I really appreciate the widening and smoothing of the surface and the new gravel put down. It has made a beautiful place even nicer. I hope everyone that has the opportunity will take a walk on it and enjoy this treasure we have in our own back yard.

    Who are they?

    Wrong priority
    This call is regarding Gov. McAuliffe proposing an amendment to prevent law-abiding citizens from purchasing a handgun. I would just like to say he needs to worry more about getting rid of the illegal people and the people who are coming here trying to do things illegally rather than worrying about law-abiding citizens and what they are doing. He needs to start worrying about trying to keep guns away from people who don’t want to follow the law, not the people who do.

    Here’s why

  • Readers Hotline 4/10/17

    Down on the court
    I’m starting to think we don’t need a Supreme Court at all. Telling people they can’t have prayer in school yet they’ve got the 10 Commandments hanging up right behind them on the wall. That is not right and God is higher than the Supreme Court. If it’s all right with the Lord, it is all right with me. There are a lot of other things the Supreme Court is doing that is not what it should be either. I don’t know why we are letting nine people tell millions of people what to do anyway.

    Wondering
    I wonder if they still have truck driving school on the parking lot after church on Sunday.

    No wonder
    This is pertaining to the cab service in Galax. It is a wonder that the cab service got any calls if the business thinks everyone they hauled was “trash.” In God’s eyes, we are all someone and no one is above the other. May God bless you.

    It’s not easy
    I agree with the caller about Galax being an honest and nice place to live. Unless you are on Social Security and you have a fixed income. Then you have to repay to remodel a school after they had purchased land to build a new school on and then they add more taxes on us and make us pay for water runoff also. If your house gets flooded, they will help you rebuild it. But, if our house needs a new roof, there is no help.

    Hypocrites

    Agreed
    I want to thank Tommy Morton for the letter he wrote in reply to the letters to the editor by John Duvall. My opinion exactly, only I could say a whole lot more. Thank you for publishing it.

    No shame

    Mind your own legs
    I’m calling about the “nix the leggings” comment. To whomever is calling in about the young girls wearing these leggings, that’s the style now days. This person must be really old-fashioned or real religious and doesn’t believe in anything. But I do know I like them myself and I think these young girls look good in them. They are beautiful. I think this lady is also jealous. You need to keep your nose out of this because it is none of your business.
