“We need to bring back the draft in the military for young males and females. Our young people would then get training in discipline, training for a profession or a skill, self-defense skills and a chance to see something of the world. If we can get the politics out of the military, that is, and give them the tools they need.”

“I think we should all just suit up in hazmat suits all the time and get on with our daily lives.”

“People who so admire the governments and social cultures of other countries should move to those countries and stop trying to change our country into them.”

“It is interesting that doctors are comparing the delta variant tochickenpox. Many of us lived through the yearly visits of chicken pox during our childhoods and became immune. Eventually, before exposing children to a drug of unknown effect, a real one-time vaccine was developed and time tested, not this yearly covid shot with 6 month boosters, that just helps the disease to adapt and spread.”

“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears, they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths” (2 Timothy 4:1-4). I think that time is here.”

“The lie is that rural Southern people are not taking the covid shots because they are uneducated illiterates who don’t accept science and voted for Trump. The truth is rural people are closer to nature and to God and to the real facts of life. Rural people don’t fall for the con games that big government and big pharma are using to shovel in the financial profits. Gullible, timid people are falling for every variant and booster that comes along, and just watch, they will keep coming along.”

“I’d like to commend Millie Perry for the wonderful article about Jim Thorpe in The Advance of August 4. I knew nothing about him, and this was fascinating to read, especially during the Olympics. He had an exciting struggle of a life, but he was very strong. Well researched and wellwritten. Thank you, Millie.”

“Another terrible decision by Biden and the democrats. We are now, according to Fox News and OneAmerica News, going to import oil from Russia, a socialist communist country. How can we oppose their aggression in the Middle East when we fund our their military with our money when they are our enemies. Trump had us energy independent. Way to go, democrats, you’re destroying our country.”

“I read on the Vidalia Indians Sports Page that only electronic transactions will be accepted to attend events. There’s a fee to use debit cards that increases the cost and goes to a third-party to administer transactions. I will bring my cash to purchase tickets for Vidalia athletic events.”

“Congratulations to Wheeler County Board of Education for having the foresight to enter in to a contract with Tutor Shop. What a great advantage this will give those children. I hope that Toombs, Montgomery and Vidalia City systems will look at this. There are children who need this help. It will be beneficial to them and our community.”

“To the Vidalia Board of Education members, please read the article in last week’s Advance about the Tutor Shop in Wheeler County. It’s an excellent program and I hope y’all will take notice and take heed.”

“While the city purchasing the motel will not stop prostitution in Vidalia, at least it will move the operation away from the historic district. Good riddance.”

“I’m a frequent shopper at the Dollar Tree and love to take my grandchildren there. However, there should be a working restroom for customers. In the last 6 months, the restrooms have been blocked off completely or locked and out of order. Are you saving on water, toilet paper, and cleanup? Please!”

“I’m a local healthcare worker. I want to say thank you to all who have been vaccinated. To those who have not been vaccinated, this return of COVID is on you. All the deaths, sickness, exhaustion of healthcare workers, sadness of the elderly in nursing homes, school starting, etc. We are reliving this nightmare.”
