Rant & Rave for Friday, Aug. 8, 2008

Feeding stray cats is encouraging problems. Compassion would be to find them a home or get rid of them.

The gas station owners make little profit per gallon; they have to charge according to what their supplier charges.

I live in Azalea Towers and from time to time we don’t see eye to eye but when it comes down to it, we are all a loving family.

How does an old person fix expenses? Help with a suggestion instead of criticism. More then 3/4 of America is struggling now and they are not elderly. I have to pray that when you are old that you have a different attitude. If you live comfortably help someone who isn't. This person may go without food, and medical help. Doesn't sound like that bothers you. You sound heartless.

I would like to thank the gas station owners of Valdosta for preparing for the shock of gas going back up. They have kept the prices close enough to $4 a gallon so when it hits again I am ready for it. I feel sorry for Tifton ($361.9) and Waycross ($355.9). It will take some adjusting for them.

A big rave to the employees of Ray Norton who made sure the lady in the electric wheelchair got down Connell Road safe. It’s good to know there are still people who care more about others than they do themselves.

I would like to request respectfully, a stop to the mean-spirited, self-centered, moronic person who continually advises ranters to move from this area every time an issue arises that is different from his/her narrow-minded intolerance.

I agree that some deserving people were left out of TitleTown. We need to include Chris Hatcher in that statement. He was a player for VSU before he became a coach.
