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!

    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.

    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.
