    Don’t prosecute
    Maybe there is more to this story about the man sleeping in the church, but in no way should anyone ever be prosecuted for sleeping in a church unless they were committing some kind of burglary, theft or damage while there. I don’t care if it is overnight. I don’t care what time it is. It is God’s House, not theirs.
    Editor’s note: The suspect is now charged with breaking into a second church in Galax. This time, he was wide awake when arrested.

    Trying to help
    I don’t know what is wrong with the person writing in saying Social Security is an entitlement. After all of us have been working 40-50 years and paying it in, that is not entitlement at all. We finally got a decent governor after we got rid of that crook and now the Republicans are trying to block everything good he is trying to help people with. He is trying to expand Medicaid and they are against that. I don’t understand why you want to throw off on Obama and our governor when they are trying to help people.

    Tiny print
    The people that publish the telephone book, are they the size of germs? They say it is larger print. It’s small print and you can’t even use a microscope or a magnifying glass to make it large enough so you can read it. I have 20/20 vision and I can’t read it.

    Proud of Galax schools
    Thank you for the articles on the high school science fair and the national award on Safe Routes to School. Kudos to everyone involved. We have much to be proud of with our city schools and I appreciate your paper giving them excellent coverage.

    Long timeline
    There is much too long a process in this country for those wanting to be president of the United States. If you are a governor or senator, do your job. Then, there are those tired of counting their millions and figure, “I guess I will run for president.” As for ISIS, what is wrong with people today? Because they don’t get their way, they lash out and kill or maim innocent people. Such hatred.

    Law for everybody
    I saw the other day where one of the guys running for city council got a parking ticket. I watched that man from the city put a parking ticket on it. If he runs for city council, looks like he would have to obey the laws, too. He knows what the laws are. I just want everybody to know that.

    Rigging the election

    After driving on Pipers Gap Road yesterday, I was disappointed in seeing people’s yards filled with old cars sitting on blocks up there in front of their yards. Also, so many with trash piled in their yards. Why doesn’t the county or EPA do something about this?

    Buckle up
