Hotline

    A capital idea
    I’m calling about the cost of the Galax football field that was described in the Hotline. What exactly is the capital fund? Where does that money come from and if it were not used for a football field, what would that money be used for out of a capital fund.

    Kudos, Gladeville
    I just want to say how impressed I am with Gladeville  School’s parent pickup procedure. It is very fast, efficient and most of all, safe. If the other local schools do not do it like this, they should take notes from Gladeville School. Kudos.

    No good

    Be decisive
    I am calling in response to the person that said the Elk Creek District needed a superhero to run for school board. We don’t need a superhero. We just need somebody with common sense that knows how to run something. Mr. Weatherman, our school board member now, is so under the thumb of all these committees such as concerned citizens and everything… We need someone who can make a decision for the kids and for the betterment of the school.

    Generosity in Galax

    Seeking attention
    I have been watching the Hotline and what they keep saying about old men looking at women at the stores. I think I finally figured it out. It goes back to my childhood when I was sitting in the back of my family car and all of a sudden my sister would say, “Daddy, he’s looking at me again.” Of course, I wasn’t. It was her way of getting attention. If you need attention that bad, keep putting it in the Hotline and we will keep remarking to it.

    History to preserve

    Rings in their noses
    I cannot believe employers allow employees to wear earrings in their nose and eyebrows and lips and work with the public. I have seen it multiple times. Disgusting. I won’t be going back there. Yes, these people have the right to express themselves but they should only be allowed to do it on their own time. When they are at work, they need to look presentable. I am a human resources manager and we have rules. Everyone should.

    It doesn’t matter
    This is for “apt to look.” Why would you think someone wanted a woman to look at them if they were complaining about a man looking? What difference does it make? You want to be looked at like a human being. Are you like some of these people in churches that only help a few and don’t help those who need it? All of it rings true. Keep dragging yourself through the mud.

    The great divide
    I just want to say I am so sick and tired of two words: Democrats and Republicans. They are causing the greatest division of anything ever in our country.

    Caution: weed pun
    I’m the guy that called about dope in Galax. All these places you go to work, they will give you a drug test. In the future, they will pick you, knowing the people that can pass it. They have a random drug test. I urge the people that have plants, have a plant-wide drug test and you will weed out a lot of the bad.
    Editor’s note: We know who to call if Cheech is ever looking for a new Chong.

    Sidewalks a necessity
    The City of Galax needs to build a sidewalk on both sides of U.S. 58 going toward the cinema, toward Walmart and toward Crossroads Institute. Lots of people walk along the sides of the road. Many people do not have transportation. Others would like to ride their bicycles. I also see women pushing baby carriages. Galax definitely needs sidewalks on both sides of 58 so that citizens and tourists can walk and bike through that area to the shopping center and to Crossroads. This would serve many people and is a necessity.
