Thumbs up

--- — THUMBS UP: To Valdosta State University Blazers Baseball’s Matthew Fears. The senior second baseman was named the Georgia South Conference’s Player of the Week. Fears had 10 hits in 22 at-bats more than a week ago, hitting four doubles for a .636 slugging percentage. Adding in two walks, he reached base 50 percent of his plate appearances and didn’t strike out. The preseason all-conference performer scored four runs, drove in five more and swiped one bag.

THUMBS UP: To the Valdosta State University Debate Team. The group’s students have won numerous awards by winning numerous debates throughout the state during the past academic year. Through research and rigorous preparation, the debate team prepares students for the challenges they will face in life as well as the challenges of competition.

THUMBS UP: To the Valdosta Police Department for receiving accolades as “one of the best agencies” ever assessed during this week’s Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies review. The VPD has been a CALEA-accredited agency for several years. The commission regularly reviews agencies for re-certification. The visiting assessors are expected to recommend reaccreditation for the VPD in July during CALEA’s conference.

    THUMBS UP: To Air Force Lt. Col. David Rayman. The 75th Fighter Squadron commander recently logged 3,000 flight hours in the A-10C Thunderbolt II. A rare feat. In presenting a Moody Air Force Base story on his accomplishment in The Times, it’s good to see the face and know the name of one of the many pilots who cross our South Georgia skies.
