    Good luck with that
    I’m calling about the IRS scammers concern that was in the Hotline. I agree that something should be done with this. It is ridiculous. The majority of these calls the police can’t do anything about because the calls are coming from other countries. It’s not based in the United States and that’s why they can’t do anything. Wish something could be done. That is crazy. Wish y’all luck and hope you can get this taken care of.

  • Clinton has experience to serve as president

    I am voting for Hillary Clinton because she is the most experienced, thoughtful and caring person in the race.
    Years ago my son developed a serious medical condition and we had no insurance. It was Hillary’s work that helped save us from disaster. Though a Republican and a Democrat worked together in the Senate to help pass CHIP — the Children’s Health Insurance Program — Hillary worked behind the scenes with both parties and the president to secure full funding.

    Offer in the mail
    You hear all this stuff about a scam. I get a letter from Appalachian Power, but it’s from an independent company selling [home power surge insurance]… there is no way you can get a surge of power that I know of other than lightning and you have insurance to take care of this. I can’t believe that Appalachian Power has jumped on this thing along with this company. It says it is separate from the power company but the letter you get has a letterhead on it from Appalachian Power. I don’t know.

    IRS scammers
    I want to know why the police can’t do something about these scamming phone calls [claiming they are] from the IRS, saying it is your last warning, they are going to come and get you and sue you when you know you don’t owe a dime to the IRS. I can’t understand. I called the police department. They said it was a scam. Why can’t they trace these people down? I’m going to have to get my phone taken out. I can’t handle it any longer. Just aggravation.

    Doing a good job
    What I am reading here in this column, it seems there are a lot of people complaining about this, that and the other. But, you know what, I know somebody who does a good job. There is this little restaurant right near the courthouse called the Dutch Oven. They are always friendly. The prices are good and their food is very good. Instead of complaining about things around here, I wanted to send out a comment and say “thank you, Dutch Oven” for doing a good job.

    Late for Sunday dinner
    I am calling in because of these people at church. When church service is over, you need to leave. These people just pull their car up next to each other and just chit chat, chit chat, chit chat. Meanwhile, cars are backing up behind them. They can’t get out of the parking lot. It’s great you want to talk to each other. It’s wonderful that you go to church to praise the Lord but please be considerate of people trying to get out of the church parking lot.

    Promote unity
    The prayer and unity service at the Galax Police Station this past Sunday [July 24] was an absolutely incredible idea. This is wonderful. I would like to see the City of Galax and surrounding counties come together and every Sunday meet in Felts Park [to] have a praise and worship service. This would be fabulous for the community to promote praise and worship, showing love and showing churches coming together.
