    Central location
    There are 21 acres right in the middle of Galax that have been for sale for five or six years that would be a perfect place for a new school. Looks like someone on city council would recommend that spot for the school instead of a residential area.
     
    Yummy
    Every time I read a letter to the editor about greenhouse gases and the environment when it is really about a vegan agenda, I am going to eat an extra hamburger with a side or ribs.

    Salute to graduates
    I would like to comment on how well-organized Galax High School’s graduation was. I love graduation outside. The well-maintained football field was the ideal place for my nephew’s graduation. Galax City Schools did a great job organizing and planning this event. I hope all future graduations will be outside. Congratulations, class of 2014.

    Market fan
    Thanks to the Independence Farmers’ Market. Thanks to Michelle and the people that started the Farmers’ Market. Thanks to those that are participating in it. It’s a great market.

    Firing away
    I was just wondering, I thought it was against the law in the Prospect and Fox Run areas of Galax to shoot a high-powered rifle around 3 in the afternoon. Let me know if it is against the law. If it is not, I may get me a gun.

    Hot dog
    This is for the woman who reached in my car on Memorial Day, unlocked it, took my dog and called the police. I was only in the store 10 minutes, if that long. You were a liar when you told the officer I was in there for over 45 minutes. If he had been any kind of an officer, he would have charged you with stealing. Too bad the dog didn’t bite one of your fingers off. Maybe that would have taught you a lesson not to steal or go into other people’s vehicles.

    Not an issue
    I attended the Hillsville Town Council meeting held right before the election. I was appalled when a man stood up and questioned Mayor Crowder about his property. The mayor owns property in Hillsville. The Galax police chief has property in Hillsville and there is no problem. The mayor owns property near the golf course. Our past mayor owned a lake house. So, why is it all at once a problem about Mayor Crowder? Shame on you about being so nosy.

    Looking good
    I want to say thank you to the Galax Recreation Department or whoever takes care of the softball fields. They had them looking spectacular for the Memorial Day weekend. Thanks a bunch, guys.

    Blames Republicans
    Everyone knows the reason that Veterans Affairs is in such a mess and behind is because the Republican Congress cut their funding. They don’t have enough people to work with the thousands of veterans. Also, they blocked the funding in 2011 and 2012 that Hillary Clinton asked for for Benghazi. She asked for more funding for more security. Then, the people are just trying to blame it on the wrong ones, looks to me like.

    Fine with Virginia
    I wouldn’t waste my time going to North Carolina to eat in fine restaurants when Virginia is full of fine restaurants. I have spent 20 years in North Carolina and I am done with that place. Nothing but a bunch of hypocrites that want to talk about everybody down there. Everybody down there knows more than everybody up here in Virginia, so you Virginia people that love North Carolina, move down there.
