Rant & Rave for Friday, Oct. 5, 2012

-- — My two friends and I went to eat at Fuji, the Chinese place in the mall. We were sitting behind this couple who were very talkative and nice. We all chatted while we ate, well as we got up to go pay, the man took our ticket and paid our meal for us. I would just like to say thank you to that very nice man. Its good to know that there’s still kindness in the world.

Congratulations to the Georgia Bridgemen for their outstanding performance at the Oconee Classic last weekend where they were named Grand Champions! So proud of all the hard work that they have put into the show and proud that the theme is an awesome tribute to our wonderful country’s heritage! Go Bridgemen!

Teachers have to fork out a lot from their own pockets. Tee shirts are pushed to be sold to students and teachers. Fund raising is pushed, also. Don’t deny that.

Fund-raisers are not FUN-draiser’s.

To take away our last chance to go to the Winnersville game in our high school career is outrageous but most of all heartbreaking. Many of us have been for waiting this day since we entered the doors of Valdosta High School and have been motivated to continue a streak that may began against our rivals as of last season.

Please help change the minds of the four Lowndes County Middle Schools to allow the Cook Middle 8th graders play in the conference softball tournament! Please reschedule the tournament so they can go on their school Washington D.C. trip. Don’t squash the dreams of these eight  girls!

School T-shirts are a good way to show pride in your child’s school. Also, some of the profit goes towards fun activities for the students such as honor roll parties, dances, field day, etc. However, no one is forcing you to buy anything. It is your choice.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.
