    Solution for strays
    I recently read an article in the paper about the bounty for coyotes in Grayson County. Just a suggestion: do not kill the coyotes. Trap them in a live cage. Bring them to Galax and turn them loose. That way we can control the deer population in Galax. Maybe get rid of some of the stray cats and all the stray dogs — something that animal control don’t seem to be able to handle. I’m sure the coyotes would kill the deer, the cats, the dogs and the groundhogs. That’s just my opinion.

    Holidays reply
    What has happened to this world? Someone saying they want only three holidays and leaving out Easter, the resurrection of our Lord and Jesus Christ; and Christmas, our Savior’s birth. Then Easter when He was resurrected and died for us on the cross. What has happened to our world? It has gone crazy and ruled by the devil.

    Majority ruled
    Right or wrong, all you guys who whine and complain because they are putting “In God We Trust” on the cars, do you believe in democracy? Well, it was voted on and majority ruled. Get over it. If you don’t like “In God We Trust” on our police cars, maybe you should move to a town that doesn’t trust in God.

    Left behind?
    I’m calling in reference to road signs that VDOT has left on the side of the road on Timberline Drive. They did some work on it about two months ago and about four of the five signs are still standing. I just wondered why they haven’t picked them up. Just a matter of why they are standing there.

    No bull
    I’m reading The Gazette about the elections and I see a lot of new faces. The sad part about the elections is, when these new people get in their jobs, it is going to be just like when kids go to play football. It’s going to be, “you do it our way or it’s the highway.” That ain’t no bull. I have lived here for 58 years. It’s their way or the highway. Remember that.

    Who will you trust?
    I can’t believe what I just read in The Gazette. First, hats off to Galax Police Chief Rick Clark and the five city council members who voted for the “In God We Trust” motto. The two [who voted against the measure] who say they are of faith — who are you going to trust on your deathbed? I bet you pray to God.
