    Dark and cold
    Christmas parades should be for the young children and elderly. Makes you wonder who schedules these parades at night when it is dark and too cold.

    Just as smart

    Big buddies?
    Well, the Democrats pulled one over on the Republicans this time. Got another Democrat elected as president. Everybody knows Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are big buddies. That’s really pulled one over. They are in business with some of the same companies. When have you ever heard of having a porno president that talks filthy, jokes filthy, cusses and all these churches voted for him? Fellow told me, “you are crazy. They ain’t churches, they are clubs.” I guess maybe he was right.

    Pleasures in Galax
    The Galax Christmas parade was absolutely fabulous. A huge thank you to everyone that participated. The church floats were wonderful. All floats. Everyone did a wonderful job. A huge thank you to one of the oldest churches in Galax, the Galax Friends Church. Thank you for the cookies, the coffee, the hot chocolate. Thank you for serving the City of Galax, and all of those that participated in the parade. What a huge blessing it was. Wow, we have such pleasures here in Galax. Looking forward to our next parade.

    Many thanks
    This is a great big thank you to Galax Pentecostal Holiness Church from Harmony Village for the wonderful meal you delivered to us on Thanksgiving Day. It was delicious and greatly appreciated by everyone. Thank you so very much and may God bless each and every one of you.

    Vultures overhead
    When is Galax going to get rid of these vultures? We had Thanksgiving at my house and everybody was making comments about the vultures. They are nasty and it was very embarrassing. I think Galax needs to do something.

    Help the needy
    I agree with the caller about the cold coffee and stale donuts church, all these big screen TVs and such. What these big churches need to do if they have the money to buy something like that is, try to get out in the community and help people in need instead of filling their pockets full.

    Send them away
    Just look on the front page of the Nov. 16 paper —  three men were charged with selling meth and being armed [two of which are not U.S. citizens]. Now, they are sitting in our regional jail getting three meals a day, bed to sleep in and a TV to watch. The American people are paying for this. Get them out of this country. Send them back to their country and let their government foot the bill, because the American people are done with it. Good job to our police officers and God bless America.

    On the air
    I want to thank AM radio station 1360 for continuing to have some of our religious programs during weekdays and also for giving out the local obituaries twice a day.

    Thinking of others
    I would like to share with readers a wonderful thing that happened at First Christian Church in Galax on Nov. 10. A gentleman stopped by the church office and told the minister the Lord has spoken to him and he was to give the church a gift. He handed him 10 $100 bills. He did not want to divulge his name. Members want to thank him and let him know the funds were put in the food bank account to buy Christmas baskets for the needy in the community. May God bless him, also.

    Washboard on U.S. 52
    Looks like a pretty good road we have now on U.S. 58 where there is repaving. Just a shame something can’t be done on U.S. 52 going down Fancy Gap Mountain where it has been patched. The patch is worse than the holes originally were. It is like a washboard going down. If that could be fixed, hey, that would be really great. But, for the 58 road, thanks for paving that road.
