    A Galax accomplishment
    I surely would have liked to have received a scholarship when I graduated from Galax High School as would have my sisters. But, there was no such thing in our day. The Foundation for Excellence in Education is a fine accomplishment for the City of Galax. How great it must be to get financial help for a college education. Way to go.

    Where are the jobs?

    Even better
    I certainly hope that with the money the hospital spent on its MRI and new equipment, that it is an open one and not a closed one in a tube. So many people are claustrophobic. I know years ago I was caught in an elevator by myself for quite a while and I can never stand to be closed up like that. I have heard many people say the same.

    Jealous of Hillary
    Fox News is so jealous of Hillary Clinton. They sound like a bunch of high school kids — when one girl is jealous of the most beautiful girl or someone else is mad because someone got their boyfriend. They realize people are finding out and seeing through them. I can’t believe anybody would believe it by now.
    Editor’s note: Are you implying that Hillary is beautiful?

    Monument work
    When are they are going to resume work on the veterans’ memorial next to the Galax library? There has been no one working on it all summer.

    Local cardiac care
    After reading about the $4 million renovation to the Twin County Community Hospital, I was wondering if it will ever be possible for them to upgrade to a heart treatment wing at the hospital so that people who have heart attacks and heart surgery don’t have to be sent to Winston.

    What’s wrong, ladies?
    I am so tired of that bunch of clowns trying to run for president and having debates and saying childish things. Everybody knows that George Bush caused this mess and why people are praying to get rid of Obama and blaming him for it, I don’t know. I’m white and I’m independent and I didn’t vote for Obama back then. I voted for Hillary. She would make a good president. We need a woman to straighten this mess out. What is wrong with you ladies believing these men. They think they are better than us.

    Pony Express
    Don’t give up. You will get your mail. My neighbor was in a local nursing home. This was in 2005 when I mailed her a card. On Aug. 19, 2015, 10 years later, I got the card unopened in my mailbox marked “return to sender.” It had been to Greensboro. It was postmarked there Aug. 19, 2015.
