Raves for Wednesday, December 18, 2013

VALDOSTA — I would like to rave to the wonderful Dasher Church of Christ Youth group for coming and singing Christmas carols at our nursing home on Sunday. You all did a wonderful job. And a big shout out to the young fella that was Santa, and to Catherine and Meredith, y’all have the voices of an angel.

The family in Madison that does the light show has really put on a great show this year. It gets better each year. I have been the last three years and my kids love it. Thank you for doing this each year.

Was reading the rant and rave the other day and saw the comment about a light show in Madison. Went Thursday night and what a show. Put up a donation box so we can help with the electric bill. Wife and I are thinking about doing one of these shows. Can someone tell us how to get in touch with this family and see how they did it? WOW!

To the lady that bought my breakfast at Zacadoos this am 12/11/13, thank you very much, you made my day! Merry Christmas!

Thank you LCSO for catching the thief in the Bemiss/Studstill Road area. I noticed the increased patrols and it has paid off!

Rave to all the people who took time out on a busy time of the year on Berkley Drive who stopped to help me when I fell in the middle of the street. I am sorry I did not get any of your names. It was over overwhelming to see the people who cared. Thank you!

Thank you to the Valwood football boys who are ringing the bells for the Salvation Army. That is a wonderful example for the young people and adults in our community. We are proud of you. That is a wonderful service for our community.  Merry Christmas!

    How in the world could any pastor allow men to play on their church softball teams at Freedom Park and almost the whole team doesn’t go to church there or anywhere? Isn’t that against the rules?

    Thank you, Mayor Gayle, for hitting the nail on the head about lack of funding to repair the Wastewater Treatment Plant. When citizens vote against raising revenue, then the only alternative is to increase water/sewer rates. Mayor Gayle, we appreciate that you care for our city’s elderly and those on fixed incomes who can’t afford a doubling or tripling of their water/sewer bills. SPLOST is funded by out-of-town sales tax, and protects the most financially vulnerable of our citizens.

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.
