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!

    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.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.

    The rodeo was a great event for the area, but hopefully next year there will be more seating. Many people paid ahead of time and didn’t get to see anything.
