    Rock around the clock
    I’d like to comment on the classic car cruise-in season that is coming up in Galax and Hillsville. Beach music is great but beach music isn’t the only kind of music. Classic car music is cruising music and that is 1950s, 60s and 70s music. Stuff like Rock around the Clock, Elvis, The Twist. Songs like that are the ones that people really want to hear. Beach music is great, but we need a live band or a deejay playing the good old rock-n-roll.

    Here we go
    I know there were several complaints last year about the Grayson County Rec Park and here we go, starting off this season and it is going to be the same thing for our kids that play sports for the rec department. It is not fair to the kids. It’s not fair to the parents. It’s not fair to the coaches. It would be wonderful if the administration would look into this situation and get something done. It is obvious to everyone but them.

    More to do
    I see the city is working on different sidewalks and it is looking nice. I sure wish the city would see something about Circle Drive’s sidewalks and yards, which were messed up two or three years ago from the work from the schools. It is still coming in the basements and ruining everything for us. We pay high taxes and I think we should be treated better.

    Clean it up
    I am a citizen that lives on Tower Road and it is nothing but a trash pile, especially the end coming toward the four-way stop off Country Club Lane. It seems like people just want to throw their trash out all over the road. It looks awful and terrible and needs to be cleaned up. I would like to live in a nice, clean area. Please, if there is anything you can do about this, please help.

    Fines for littering
    People that put trash out in other people’s yards, I am going to push the General Assembly here in Virginia to make it a $5,000 fine and it needs to be a $5,000 fine, those trashy people.

    Unsightly trash
    I’m calling in reference to all the trash and garbage that has been thrown out of vehicles along Timberline Drive between U.S. 58 and Cranberry Road. It is a very unsightly mess and these people that are using it for a garbage disposal, it is not a secret garbage disposal place. These people should use a container or small bag in their vehicle to put their trash in and when they get home, put it in the garbage can. People should have respect for the elderly that have to get out there and clean it up.

    Second guessing
    I agree with the caller that Fries, Providence and Mount Rogers schools should have been repaired and left open. Correction, Grayson Highlands School was built at Grant, not at Mount Rogers, which is the upper end of Grayson County. Seems there is no life after Volney going west except at tax time. Also, residents, more money is needed for janitors to clean floors at Grayson Highlands School. This is a proud resident of Whitetop, Va.
