    Keyless no more
    Thank you to the kind, thoughtful person who took time to pick up my lost post office box key and turn it in at the Hillsville Post Office. You were a blessing. Thank you.

    Something to monitor
    Your paper recently ran a front-page article regarding Christmas tree farms and all of their benefits to Grayson County. However, you never mentioned the downside of the Christmas tree business, like poisonous pesticides that are sprayed by helicopters and are dangers to our health, especially those who live in the middle of several Christmas tree farms. How about mentioning the increase of cancer rates in Grayson County now that we have these wonderful Christmas trees.

    Where’s it coming from?
    About the front page article about Carroll County wanting to get four school buses, I think it is very poor management. I don’t buy anything if I don’t know where the money is coming from. They are going to pay $400,000-plus for buses, but then they said they didn’t know where the money is coming from. Why would you buy something if you don’t have the money or don’t know where it is coming from? Carroll County needs to wake up.

    Already provided
    It’s difficult to understand why Galax is spending money on a recycling center when there is already a drive-in recycling center in operation at no cost to taxpayers. Why would Galax want to compete with a private enterprise that employs local people? This is a waste of taxpayer money when the service is already provided. Makes no sense.

    Loose dogs
    Grayson County needs a leash law on dogs and a dog warden to enforce these laws. Any given time, you ride around in Grayson County, you can count at least 50 dogs running loose. You can’t hunt because dogs are running everywhere.

    Jealous opposition
    Thumbs up to President Trump. He is the best since Ronald Reagan. Some of the ones that are against him think they are going to lose their welfare checks and they are going to have to go back to work. Trump has done more for the country since he has been president than Obama did in eight years. Democrats are jealous of him. He is going to make America great again. He is going to drain the swamp.

    The referees’ fault
    I’m calling about the Grayson/Galax football game. I wouldn’t be hollering about winning when the refs are dirty doing their job. I saw our boys clothes-lined, which wasn’t called. I saw one boy get his helmet slung across the field, which wasn’t called. I saw one of Grayson’s boys jump on the sidelines on our boys, which wasn’t called. So, if you want to call that winning, I call that dirty myself. At least our boys know what sportsmanship is all about. Go Maroon Tide. You got it.
