Raves for Wednesday, March 20, 2013

VALDOSTA — Thank you, Mrs. Dana at HUMC preschool! We couldn't ask for a better teacher for our little one. You have been a blessing.

I want to give a big RAVE for Destini who works at the movie theatre. She is always so nice, friendly, and smiling.. whether she is at the door, the food station or greeting me when I buy my ticket. Kudos to her and thank you!

Raves to the hard-working people of Temple Israel for another successful sandwich sale. The food was great as usual and proceeds go for a very worthy cause. Thanks again.

We do have a few deli's here in Valdosta. Jimmy John's is to die for! Turkey sub with cucumber, tomato and avocado sauce. Making me hungry! I haven't been to Manny's but I've heard good things.

I would like to thank the faculty and staff of Lighthouse Christian school and Daycare for all that you do. Both my children attend this school and daycare and I am greeted every single morning with smiling faces and great attitudes. I am so proud of the Christian values that are taught at this school and glad that my children attend there!

I want to thank my carrier too. She's a nice lady in a blue Toyota Corolla and she always makes sure we get our paper every day. She always wraps our paper in plastic when it rains. Thank you Miss Hudson!

Huge rave to Dr. Ambrozic and his staff at the Southern Vein & Laser Center. They're so caring, courteous and most importantly knowledgeable. Valdosta needs more physicians like him.

Rave to Jessica who works at the Flashfoods on St. Augustine. She is a great employee. I have problems getting around and she was kind enough to bring my money to my care. If employers had workers like her, they would have it made.

Praise to Barry Fitzgerald for writing “Come, Follow Me”, and the Perimeter Baptist Church members who participated in the performance to celebrate Easter. It was all done to honor God through Christian faith and obedience.

Thank you to the VHS bus driver who found our son's wallet and personally made sure he got it back.

Great job, Max at Verizon! You have awesome customer sevice skills and a wonderful personality!

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    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.
