    Don’t overlook wages
    I keep reading about Grayson County and all they seem to be worried about is those high-tech bleachers the superintendent thinks he needs. What about the salaries of the people that work at the school like the maintenance, custodians, support staff, cafeteria workers, people like that? He really needs to look into that and so do the supervisors to see if maybe they can bring their wages up just a little bit. That would be greatly appreciated.

    People matter
    I would like someone to put more recipes in The Gazette and old-timey remedies and folklore and things of days gone by. We are getting ahead of ourselves with these smart phones and computers and are moving away from what really matters in life, and that is each other and passing along stories and family traditions and recipes. We need to get back to our roots. Smart phones and computers aren’t everything. It’s the people in our lives that are.

    Community asset
    I just want to say I appreciate our Li’L Country Store in our little area. The employees all are very friendly people and they have the best little deli. I thank them so much for what they do.

    Flying debris
    When city employees mow the grass, can you please ask them to mow with the grass (and rocks or debris) flying away from the road and passing cars?

    This is for the person who stole the Bible out of my convertible, either at Fairview Church or at Mountain Surf. You know who you are. It has my name on it. Read it. Maybe you will learn something from it. I have forgiven you. I hope God has.
    Editor’s note: The caller later notified the newspaper that the Bible was returned. The thief must have gotten to the “thou shalt not steal” part.

    Safe at school
    My children go to Carroll County High. I feel safe that they are in the school. I know exactly when my kid needs me or whatever. The parents that have to have grandparents make a comment for them, they need to get it right. [Some people are] asking to fight. I don’t know why, but that’s just the way kids are today. My kid is safe at school and I have 100 percent faith in Carroll County High School. Thank you very much.

    Litter patrol
    I would like to say the people who cleaned on Virginia 94, Brush Creek Mountain, really did a good job and I appreciate how clean it looks through there. I wish everyone would not throw trash out. These people have to work hard to pick it up. But if I was able, I would be helping these people pick up trash myself. The people that did that, it all leads to what the community looks at and that you care. Thanks again.
