    Loose dogs
    Grayson County needs a leash law on dogs and a dog warden to enforce these laws. Any given time, you ride around in Grayson County, you can count at least 50 dogs running loose. You can’t hunt because dogs are running everywhere.

    Jealous opposition
    Thumbs up to President Trump. He is the best since Ronald Reagan. Some of the ones that are against him think they are going to lose their welfare checks and they are going to have to go back to work. Trump has done more for the country since he has been president than Obama did in eight years. Democrats are jealous of him. He is going to make America great again. He is going to drain the swamp.

    The referees’ fault
    I’m calling about the Grayson/Galax football game. I wouldn’t be hollering about winning when the refs are dirty doing their job. I saw our boys clothes-lined, which wasn’t called. I saw one boy get his helmet slung across the field, which wasn’t called. I saw one of Grayson’s boys jump on the sidelines on our boys, which wasn’t called. So, if you want to call that winning, I call that dirty myself. At least our boys know what sportsmanship is all about. Go Maroon Tide. You got it.

    The smoking factor
    I want to say I really like your paper. I moved here and I like your paper. Also, in your Readers’ Hotline, it is so true, what was written in there about so many people. I am an elderly person and I go to the doctor. Some people come up and pay and then they wait on the outside and go take a smoke. Can you imagine? Yes, I agree with the person that wrote in about the cigarette situation. Let’s get on disability or something because we have smoked our brains out and let somebody else take care of your health care.

    Airport is critical
    I keep seeing comments in the paper about Twin County Airport. I hope these people complaining realize the only way we can attract industry or maintain industry in our area is to have a functional airport.

    Stay out of it
    City council, why get involved with recycling when we have a locally-owned business handling this need? Yes, they need some gravel and always needs cleaning. But, have you seen the mess that people leave for them to handle? The city should stay out of recycling and support recycling and the people that already have this business for us available. You could spend your time finding someone to buy the property on Fries Road that you bought for the school, which was a real fiasco.

    Yellow dog
    Regarding the [Hotline call], “Knucklehead in charge.” This has got to be a yellow-dog Democrat who commented. Talking about Hillary Clinton, the reptilian with the hole in the tongue.

    Hide and seek
    Because the police for the Town of Hillsville have decided they have to have black vehicles so they can sneak up on people, that’s fine. But, you have to remember one important thing. When you are running radar on Interstate 77, the least you do when it is foggy is to turn your lights on. I almost hit one of the pickup trucks this morning coming down 77 just right past the Hillsville exit.

    The right to protest
    This is just a comment about the Black Lives Matter that is all over the television. You’re protesting against the same thing that gives you the right to protest. You want your First Amendment right, you want to be heard. It’s the First Amendment that gives you the right to walk around carrying a sign and interrupting the world. You are trying to shut down all forms of speech that you don’t want. Unless it’s your opinion, you don’t want it heard.
