    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.

    Other culprits
    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.”

    Looking good
    I’d like to give a shout out to our local farmers for the wonderful job they do. The fields look so good. Beautiful, actually. So pleasing to the eye. I love sitting on my porch admiring the view I have or just driving to town and passing the hillsides and fields surrounding me. Good job, guys and gals.

    Do some checking

    Hole fixed
    I want to thank the City of Galax for finally fixing that big sinkhole at the alley between Washington Street and Webster Street that has been there for 18 years. They did a fantastic job. It hasn’t washed out yet, so hopefully it will hold.
