    Put a bow on it
    I’m calling about the Galax garbage pickup. I am one of many whose garbage did not pick up last week. We were left with our garbage sitting on the street and we are elderly and have a hard time getting it out there in the first place. I was wondering if the city would like us to giftwrap our garbage before we put it out.

    Wondering

    Animals get priority
    This is in comment about the animals being mistreated, left in cars. If anyone is not going to take care of the animals, they don’t need them in the first place. I have two dogs and I would do anything I can for them to protect them and provide medicine and all. My husband says I think more of the animals than I do him.

    Pulpit reserved
    This is in reference to churches should leave politics out of the pulpit. That is for preaching — about our Lord and Savior.

    Bring it to a vote
    Republicans want to delay the vote on the farm bill. All they do is work against the people that need that farm bill passed. I wouldn’t vote a Republican ticket for no way in the world.

    In comparison
    I agree with “so attractive.” I like to go to Walmart and let my husband sit on the bench while shopping. He is real old and I am, too. But, every time we leave Walmart he always gives me a compliment and tells me not to feel bad about myself, because other people really don’t look that good.

    Not so good

    Open to criticism
    Romney is criticizing the people that were defending and dying for our country in the embassy. Criticizing the last words coming from them that were killed. I think that is disgraceful. Our country had embassies attacked under George W. Bush. Let’s think things over.

    Missed the boat
    Well, looks like the tree-hugging do-gooders of Carroll County are at it again. They are opposing a wind farm — something that could potentially help all of us around here, maybe even reduce our electric bill that Appalachian Power keeps raising. But they all got to oppose it and come up with an ordinance to ban any future way of putting any wind farm up. Way to go, Carroll County. I guess y’all missed the whole thing about trying to be energy independent and trying to reduce electric bills.
