    A little bit fast
    I’d like to have respect for the state police, but I live on Tower Road and the state police park there and there’s a steep slope coming off the hill and people are going a little bit faster than 25 mph and when they want to make a quota or something, they always come to Tower Road and sit there and get the law-abiding citizens coming home from work. I just don’t have respect for them for doing that. I think they ought to be chasing drug dealers instead of law-abiding citizens.

    Please stop writing return to sender on junk mail. It does not go back to the sender.

    Unhappy meal
    Seventy years old is closer to me than 60 years old and in all my years, I have never seen a more uninviting, cold, hard, uglier McDonald’s restaurant than the newly remodeled one at I-77. We heard they are going to redo the one in Galax the same way. We are really disappointed. Whoever designed that restaurant is just so disappointing.

    Baywood questions
    I was calling about that Baywood School closing. They just think it is about the school but what about the people – where they vote at? And the Baywood Ruritans, are they still going to be, and is the school going to be tore down? There are a lot of questions I think the school board ought to have known before they voted to shut that school down. There is more to it and I think there is an ulterior motive.

    Just a ploy
    You say 16-year-olds should have the right to vote. I say, if they vote, let them serve their country in the armed forces. You say they’re just children. I say, “my point exactly.” Just another pathetic ploy by the left to gather votes.

    Awesome fireworks
    I just want to say what an awesome fireworks show on the last night of the Galax Fireman’s Carnival. It was excellent and I can’t wait for the Fourth of July.

    Why diss Obama?
    Why do some callers to the Hotline praise Trump and then add something negative about Obama? It’s never just Trump. They have to always diss Obama and we must be racking up some bills for Trump to be flying Air Force One all over the place all the time. Has he always gone to church or is he just trying to sound like he does? You know, to win votes.

    Come and see
    I’m still calling about that mess in the Spring Valley Road area. I don’t know how you get anyone to even come and look at it. It should be the health department’s job to come and get this straightened out. Where is our Providence member of the board of supervisors?

    Asking for money

    Antiques or junk?
    To the person so concerned about the junk on Spring Valley Road, how about if you just tend to your property and let these people tend to theirs? They’re probably law-abiding taxpayers and they can have anything they want out there. Besides, don’t you know, it’s not junk anymore, it’s restorable antiques. Remember that. Why not just live and let live? That’s all I’ve got to say.
