    Mind your own legs
    I’m calling about the “nix the leggings” comment. To whomever is calling in about the young girls wearing these leggings, that’s the style now days. This person must be really old-fashioned or real religious and doesn’t believe in anything. But I do know I like them myself and I think these young girls look good in them. They are beautiful. I think this lady is also jealous. You need to keep your nose out of this because it is none of your business.

    Listening in?
    Even though there is no evidence to back up Trump’s ridiculous claim that Obama wiretapped his phone lines, let’s suppose for a minute that it is actually true anyway. If it helps you Trump voters, think of it as a baby monitor.

    Come to your senses

    Nice gesture
    Just want to say thank you for whoever bought supper for my husband and I at County Line on Friday night. Thank you very much and God bless you.

    Cluttered roadway
    Is there no ordinance in Carroll County against cluttering up our countryside? The mess along Glendale Road near Faddis Hill is an eye sore, not only to the people who live here, but visitors entering Galax. There is a law against littering. Shouldn’t there be a rule applying to this situation, too?

    Driving legally
    What is all this about fast lane and speeders and being fined for driving too slow? The speed limit is the speed limit. If you are driving the speed limit in the so-called fast lane, why would you want to pull over? Why do they have a speed limit? People are flying way too fast anyway. That’s why there are so many wrecks. I have been run over twice by drunken drivers and I didn’t appreciate their fast driving.

    Curb the contagion
    I would like to praise the Patrick County school system for having the good sense to know to close schools whenever people have flu left and right. And why Carroll County has not done the same is beyond me. Three hundred children out in one day is ridiculous and they should know they need to close our school system and sanitize our schools the same as Patrick County.

    You’ll be sorry

    Extra credit
    I would like to comment on the “staying eligible” call, that  two students at an area high school had grades changed to Ds at the end of a semester. I want to report that these kids went after school. They had to stay at remediation to make up their grades. It was not given to them and I don’t think they need to be talking about the school to begin with because they don’t know what they are talking about. These kids had to work for their grades. They had to make their grades up.

    Lacking air
    I wasn’t really for either team in the Super Bowl, but I like to watch the halftime show and commercials. New England two years ago won the game, it is claimed, because they deflated the footballs. I don’t know if that was so. This time, the only thing that was lacking air was the Atlanta Falcons. New England has won their fifth Super Bowl and they are probably the best team there is.

    Keep it a secret
