    No answer
    It’s amazing that when a controversial decision is made in Grayson County like firing a coach, you can’t get the superintendent or the school board members’ phones to work. You call and you call and you can’t get an answer. Someone needs to call the phone company and fix the phones up there in Independence.

    Not fair

    Plus-sizes
    I’m calling, not to complain about the presidency or having potholes in the road. I’m calling to complain about the city not having any plus-size clothing stores other than Walmart or Cato. We need [choices] with quality clothing that will fit 5-foot-2 people instead of all just 5-foot-10 and up. Fries, you have been doing some pretty neat things lately. Why not bring in a plus-size store in to the old company store? I would travel to Fries to buy the clothing. It would be really nice if we had [that] in Galax.

    Hiss, hiss
    Isn’t Galax a great little town? I just love the “live and let live” atmosphere around here. Like my neighbor. He has this unusual hobby of raising feral cats under his front porch so his dog can chase them down in the yard and kill them. Most places, the authorities would kind of look down on this type behavior. But here in Galax, [it is viewed as] “there are too many cats in Galax anyway.” Now, ain’t Galax a great little town?

    Good ole club

    Paving of U.S. 52
    For everyone who is complaining about U.S. 52 South below the parkway, it has been [repaved]. The rough patches have been paved and we want to give a thank you to Virginia Department of Transportation in Carroll County.

    About the article about the drug bust here in Galax — I’m glad you are getting the meth dealers off the road but I think you need to work on the prescription drug dealers, also.

    At your service
    This message is for the sheriff’s office. Just west of Galax, I recently had the pleasure of meeting one of your deputies. I’m not sure if I can mention his name, but he has a military style haircut. He helped me with some problems I was having. This deputy was the most professional and courteous officer I’ve ever meet. My kids have always been afraid of police officers, and the way he treated them was amazing. I just wanted to say “thank you.”
