    Washboard on U.S. 52
    Looks like a pretty good road we have now on U.S. 58 where there is repaving. Just a shame something can’t be done on U.S. 52 going down Fancy Gap Mountain where it has been patched. The patch is worse than the holes originally were. It is like a washboard going down. If that could be fixed, hey, that would be really great. But, for the 58 road, thanks for paving that road.

    Good ole Tabitha
    Somewhere in Galax there is a utility locator employee named Tabitha. She gave me a jump when my old pickup died and I hope her boss knows what a good-hearted employee they have.

    Most efficient
    I would like to thank Carroll and Grayson counties and Galax for the most convenient and efficient household hazardous disposal site provided on Oct. 29 at the landfill. The fellows working were so helpful and pleasant and we are helping the environment.

    Editor’s note: We have grouped election-related Hotline comments into today’s edition in order to get them out of the way before Tuesday’s election. Calls received about other topics will appear in the Hotline on Wednesday. If you call to react to political comments below, your call may not be published if it’s more rehash. Because when it’s over, it’s over.

    Federal spending
    Well, you stuck that Tea Party and Republican junk in and voted and look what a mess we are in now. I hope you are not thinking about still voting for a Republican after the do-nothing Congress has cut funds for veterans, teachers, nurses, doctors, schools. Anything that is important. Yet, Sen. Mitch McConnell was able to spend millions on the rich side of Kentucky for a fancy park, but that’s okay. People need to think about what they are doing. That First Lady would not be suitable either on that Republican side, if you ask me.

    Smells too sweet
    I’m calling regarding women’s perfume. I was at a public meeting and a lady wore such strong perfume, I sat across the room and I could taste it. That is too strong. That is too much to wear. Please, be more considerate of people around you and people with allergies. Think twice before applying so much perfume.

    Not friendly
    I am calling about a male worker for the Town of Hillsville that is unfriendly. You look at him and speak and he looks at you like you are crazy. The mayor of Hillsville is very friendly but there are certain other males that are very unfriendly. Get a personality.

    Taco traffic
    I’m calling about the Taco Bell that’s coming to Hillsville. They really do need another fast food restaurant in Hillsville. And, I want to know how anybody will ever be able to turn in the Food Lion parking lot. It is terrible now when you go and the entrance. Tell me how it is going to handle the fast food traffic and the shopping center traffic.
