    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?

    Groundhog says
    It’s been an early spring. The birds are chirping. The turkeys are hollering. The grass is greening up. I think it’s maybe here to stay, but don’t forget the ground hog. We only have six more weeks of bad potholes.

    Crude display
    What a vulgar, crude display at the past Republican debate. What negative role models for our children.

    Where’s the baby?
    I was just wondering why the new baby of 2016 wasn’t in the paper. I’m sure there is one that has been born, but I haven’t seen it in the paper.

    I heard that Donald Trump’s present wife was a model from the country of Slovenia. I heard that she posed nude on the cover of a magazine published in that country. Now, wouldn’t she be a great model for a First Lady?
    Editor’s note: It is true that Melania Trump posed nude in her earlier days for the British magazine GQ in 2000. The Trumps were married in 2005. But let’s have no double standard here — the spouse of the presumptive Democratic nominee has had his share of indiscretions, himself.

    Hey, VDOT. The reason you can’t get anything done is you spend too much time and money on the bridge at Faddis Hill, patching it. With all you have spent, you could have put in a new bridge.

    Off base
    In reference to the quarterbacks remark last week, was the caller actually saying the Panthers should have won because the quarterback is black and it is wrong that they lost? Does this make the caller a racist? To say the team should win and it is sad showing because he was black and they lost. What kind of person would call in and say something like that?

    Deer feeding
    I read in the Hotline about the individual who was watching deer eat his $600 worth of shrubbery. I appreciate him feeding the deer but I usually just throw out a few apples. You don’t have to give them the good stuff.

    Marked absent
    I saw on the news that Bernie Sanders did not go to vote for the sanctions against North Korea. They say North Korea now is the biggest nuclear threat to America. The other senators took the time to go vote. So, you can get too big to fail is all I’ve got to say.
