Smoking up street
Smokers need to have more self control. Clover Street in Galax used to be a quiet dead-end street until Twin County Regional Hospital passed a no smoking policy on their property. Now, there is a ridiculous amount of break time smokers and traffic. How do I know? Same vehicles every day, four and five times a day, everyone riding and puffing. Give Clover Street a break or stay at your work and do your job.
Too many trips
As a taxpayer of Grayson County I watched bus 65 make four trips to Troutdale every day. Two trips with kids and two trips empty. How can transportation coordinators not see that they are wasting a week’s worth of fuel? Bus 65 used to sit at Young’s Store. My question is, why can’t it sit at the new school right across the road? We could run that bus two years on the fuel he is burning in one year? He needs to furnish his own way to Troutdale to pick up his bus, not on taxpayer money.
When you are on your way to work on Route 89, Monday through Friday, you better just clear the road if there is a certain lady that works in a factory in Galax. I have just witnessed her pass four cars in a row simply because they get a bonus if they are not late for work. Do they get a bonus if they kill somebody on the way to work?
Just want to say what an awesome job the Galax High School cheerleaders did on their dance at the Galax-Grayson game. Great job to the captains Kristin McMickle and Ashley Nale for choreographing the dance. You put a lot of hard work in it and it showed. Every cheerleader did an amazing job. You all represent the school extremely well. We are so proud of you all.
No harm done
I’m calling in response to “wrong way.” I was spanked with a switch and I turned out all right. My parents were spanked with a switch and they turned out all right. I tell you what spanking you with a switch teaches you — it teaches that you obey the first time without getting a whipping but you can go ahead and let them do anything they please, give them everything they want and then let them live like hell and that might be where they wind up. Beware.
Talk about all the dangers of deer. My son-in-law is a long haul truck driver. In some state away from here, he hit four at one time because he couldn’t stop and it killed every one of them. He was not hurt but he was really upset about it. These here in town are really getting to be a sight again. They are just everywhere. It is a shame because they are beautiful.
