    Still speeding
    When people visit me from out of state, they are all the time asking me why the police can’t crack down on these speeders on Pipers Gap Road.

    Go to the bank
    I read where Carroll County was slow to cash the taxes that were paid. It is not only Carroll County. I live in Grayson County and I called because they hadn’t cashed my check and my checkbook didn’t balance. It was over a month and still not cashed. Why not hire a few more people to keep up with the debt loads to citizens paying taxes. Why should they not be required to cash within timely fashion or be penalized? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Rising cost
    How could Obamacare possibly cause a person’s insurance to go up now? It doesn’t start until January. But, whoever had their insurance to go up and is complaining about it, they need to talk to their insurance company. That is who is to blame.

    Growing inferior
    We wouldn’t have such a debt problem in this country if the big shots in big companies paid their fair share of taxes. Why do they hate the American people so much? They made their money on our backs and the stuff coming into this country anymore is inferior junk. Can stuff can any smaller, thinner, weaker? What the heck? A pound of coffee is less than a pound – way less than a pound. A bar of soap is getting smaller. Dish lotion is watered down. When does the greed stop?

    Steam your buns
    There is a little deli shop [address omitted in editing] … Try to make a great hot dog but theirs is just like everyone else’s because if they would just only use a steamer to steam their buns, they would have the best hot dog in Southwest Virginia. It is the only thing they lack, having the best hot dogs to brag about. They don’t brag, but they could if they steamed their buns. Nobody steams their buns anymore and the hotdogs are not much. This is coming from a hot dog lover.

    Check your list
    You know, this is the holiday season. Santa Claus is checking his list. So, I think people should be checking our lists when they go to big chain stores. I was charged for stuff I didn’t even buy. So, it pays to check your list.

    Bring it back
    To the ones that stole my mom’s pocketbook on Dec. 2, please bring back the pocketbook with the contents. You can keep the money, but return the pictures and sentimental items. Please return it. No questions asked.

    Watching my speed
    They sure made a mistake when they put the 35 mph instead of 45 on the Galax four-lane next to Pizza Hut and through there. I try to go by the speed limit and people are passing me like I am sitting still. Just running around me, and everything. That is going to cause accidents instead of helping. It’s a shame, really.

    Witnessing speeders
    To all the people on Pipers Gap that think there are a lot of speeders up there, I live on Pipers Gap and I enjoy watching the speeders whiz by my house. If you are going 45-50 mph, you need to lose your license.

    Gladeville family
    I had a Thanksgiving meal at Gladeville Elementary School today, and it was awesome. We had a very good crowd and the people enjoyed their family and kids and friends.
