    Just a travesty

    Crows invasion
    Terrace Lane residents never had crows until the garbage receptacles were overloaded and overflowing onto the street. Crows are mean. They kill rabbits and birds and make a trashy looking street. Be sure your garbage container lid is securely closed.

    No easy job
    What I really think is shameful is someone again putting our president down. God doesn’t like that either. If he didn’t want Obama there, he would remove him. We need to pray for our president. That is not an easy job and no matter which way he goes, he will be criticized.

    Still curvy
    I want to comment on the article about the Route 89 new road going into North Carolina. I have driven for 54 years, all over the United States and Canada. You drive that road — I just drove on 89 this past weekend — and you show me where that has helped anything other than maybe making it worse in the curve. It is going to be the same thing that it was. North Carolina is just throwing their money away.

    Question of fairness
    A caller said was racism to say that you hate President Obama, but does that mean that it is not racism to say that you hate George Bush because he is not part of a protected minority? And, all this talk about the police officers being prosecuted for arresting blacks, where is the fairness in this country? If they arrest a black then the police are going to be prosecuted? I can understand why there are less people being arrested now.

    So wrong
    For the president to say the ruling handed down on gay marriage is a victory for the American people is so wrong. It was a victory for a group of confused people — a group of people that he belongs to. Very confused. To light up their White House in rainbow colors was so embarrassing. I’m sure it was to many others. He does not represent the majority of Americans.

    Where’s the money?
    Now my son will have a happy and good reason to go to school with building trades and Mr. Jones back in Independence school. Have they found out where all the schools money has gone? They are just talking about budget now – side tracking. Where did the money go?
    Editor’s note: The county is conducting an investigation of Grayson school finances to answer that question.

    Holes to fill
    Whoever is responsible for upkeep at the entrance to the Galax end of the New River Trail needs to do some much-needed maintenance. There are two large potholes at the entrance that can damage a car. It’s embarrassing for out of town visitors to see a parking lot in such poor condition. Especially since they charge such a large parking fee.

    Doesn’t matter
    It really does not matter what anyone thinks about who wears what to church. It is what God thinks, not what a person thinks. We are not there to judge whether they wear bad clothes or good clothes or what. That’s not what we go to church for — to see what somebody wears.
