    Too many clerks?
    If the Town of Hillsville employs any more clerks for the town hall, they will need to buy a mobile office and put it in back of town hall.

    Expensive tastes
    This blew my mind when I read in the Hotline the person fussing about somebody wanting cigarettes and pop and said they could barely afford to keep themselves up. Cigarettes and pop cost a fortune. How can they afford that if they are on a fixed income like I am? That’s ridiculous.

    Teachers first

    Wasted effort
    Thank you, Grayson supervisors, for wasting my money on [bounties for] coyotes. I will do everything in my power the next election to make sure you are not reelected for voting to kill the coyotes.
    Editor’s note: So you’ll be informed come election time: the increase in the coyote bounty fund, like the bounty itself, was decided by a 3-2 vote. Supervisors Glen Rosenbaum, David Sexton and John Brewer voted for it, and Supervisors Kenneth Belton and Brenda Sutherland voted against it.

    Not the first time
    This is in reference to the KKK recruitment pamphlets that have been handed out. About 13 years ago, I received the same literature. It wasn’t delivered in my mail, but it was a recruitment package left in my driveway. I took this to the sheriff’s office and nothing was ever mentioned or heard of that. It has been an ongoing thing for years — the recruitment. It’s not just a thing that has happened in the recent weeks.

    Academics first

    Bad idea
    Dear Supervisor Rosenbaum: I will vote for anybody other than you because of this coyote issue. My hard-earned money is going toward the killing of coyotes and paying hunters out of my tax money and whoever instituted the $500 contest should be run out of town.

    Who is in charge of overhanging trees and overhanging limbs over our power lines and stuff? Doesn’t somebody have a contract for that in this area? Thank you for what your paper does.

    Where’s the pride?

    Excessive homework
    My daughter, who is an honor roll student at one of the schools, has a problem. The math teacher gives so much homework every single night — five or six pages each night. It’s a struggle. She can never get in bed until really late, besides having to do homework from other classes. She sometimes falls asleep before getting it all done. She already has hours of math each school day. Why would the teacher give the class this much homework? I am really annoyed.

    I am calling about the outside lights at the hospital. I have gone there several times in recent months and could hardly see how to walk to the emergency room doors. We did ask security and they said they were working on them. Someone needs to check on this.
    Editor’s note: When contacted, Twin County Regional Hospital’s facilities director said: “The outdoor lighting requires specialized equipment. This routine maintenance is scheduled to replace the extinguished lights.”
