    Prison mix-up
    I was reading in the paper today about the new state prison in Grayson County, how you could shop there, you could eat there, you could rent a room there. I thought prisoners were supposed to pay for their crime. Looks to me like they are getting the easy street.

    Sickly cycle
    We keep our kids home when they are sick. We don’t have time limits when they get sick. The school calls, we have to go for a meeting and are told our kids cannot miss more school. So, we send them to school. More get sick. What is up with this?

    Speed trap
    Can you have an investigative reporter determine why the bypass around Hillsville speed limit is only 55 when most areas that have similar features would have a 60 or 65 mph speed limit. I’m concerned that every time I use the bypass it has become a speed trap for the Hillsville Police Department to spend their time trying to catch people doing 55 on a highway that is designed for higher speeds.

    Boondoggle?

    Save the goat
    The caller that had the concern about the goat being tied in a field had a good point. I think this could have been a case of animal cruelty if animal control had looked in to it more closely. But, if animal control in Carroll County is no more responsive than animal control in Grayson County, then you shouldn’t count on them to be there very often.

    Reply to Mongo
    Hey Mongo. I’m glad that you and your dogs are happy and doing good and staying warm and I also hope that you change your mind about going down to Dugspur because you remember what happened before, you got locked up. You better stay in Galax so we can keep hearing from you.

    Pothole alert
    Galax City is all the time going up on people’s taxes. They need to fix the potholes in roads around town and also Carroll County needs to fix the potholes on Tower Road.

    Good people
    I thank my neighbor and my bosses at the factory for doing everything they have been doing for me since I have got cancer and to let everybody know there are still good people in this world and I hope God blesses each and every one of them.

    Cowards
    These gangs are nothing but a bunch of lousy cowards. You couldn’t get them to go to Afghanistan or Iraq.

    Not for viewing
    If the federal government is going to ban assault weapons and semi-automatic pistols with more than 10 rounds, well, how about being fair? In Hollywood, let’s not make any movies that have any assault weapons, and let’s take assault weapons out of video games. There should be no TV program with assault weapons.
