    Past price surges
    This is an answer to the “road of distress.” I would just like to ask why everybody wants to give Obama such a hard time on the price of gas. He didn’t start all the gas prices. It started in the 1970s under Nixon and Gerald Ford. Obama and Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy and them have really helped our country and I think the Democrats need a hand of praise for it.

    Don’t “dress old”

  • Readers' Hotline 4/18/12

    Real reason
    Everyone knows the real reason gas prices are going up. It’s the big oil companies and the investors and a Congress that is voting for them and all their tax breaks because then Congress gets a big donation to their campaign fund.

    As it should be

    Opportunity knocks
    I could not agree more with the caller last week regarding our Twin County Regional Hospital aligning with Duke LifePoint Healthcare. That is amazing. This is just a great, great opportunity for our community to have Duke LifePoint here.

    Let ‘em walk
    I am a Carroll County citizen and I am absolutely against the supervisors raising our taxes. This is ridiculous for the old people. The school system needs to cut back on a lot of stuff that is not very beneficial, beginning with the buses after school.

    Not so needy

    Contributing to delinquency
    What you see is what you get. Parents, don’t blame your teachers for your child’s bad grades, when he or she are told not to give up their cell phones by you. When a teacher is trying to teach class, they spend so much wasted time having to tell them that cell phones are not to be used in class. If only you could see what you have let them become. You are the one setting an example. Take a real good look before you blame others for your decisions. Don’t always put blame on teachers. Do the crime, pay the time.

    Line is busy
    This is in regard to “texting away.” It is not the cell phone record they need to check. It’s the school phone records they need to check about “texting away.”
    Editor’s note: No more calls about this matter. Or texts.

    Lots of nerve

    Keeping score
    You so-called Christians who voted Republican, you are always talking about the 10 Commandments and it ought to be posted. Well, for every lie you tell about Obama, it’s a Commandment you have broken. This also applies to Democrats who lie on Republicans.

    Pantry was a success

    I want to express the gratitude of our community for the mobile food pantry that came to Volney on March 15. The event was a super success. Thanks to all of the great volunteers and the United Company Foundation of Feeding America.

     

    Salutations

    Made us proud
    The special section of The Gazette on March 16 was a great recognition of local high school sports teams, coaches and support staff. The honors are certainly deserved as the teams have worked long, hard hours on the court. But also, in the classroom, as most of these students are also listed on the honor roll page for Galax High School. You make us proud. Congratulations to all.
