Rant & Rave for Friday, Oct. 5, 2012

The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — 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.

To answer the Thursday rant looking for a great doctor’s office in Valdosta; I have your answer. Dr. Parrott’s office is always clean, efficient, curious, and knowledgeable. I’ve never waited over 15 minutes and the doctors/nurses always take the time to answer my questions and make me feel comfortable.

In reference to the doctor who has plenty of time, it is Dr. John Anderson. He is great, wonderful and have time for everybody.  We do have some doctors  who are  wonderful in Valdosta.
