Rant & Raves for Thursday, January 3, 2012

-- — I just wanted to take a moment to praise Dr. Mike Chiang and all of his incredible nurses for showing compassion and great love for all their patience, even the difficult ones! After going to the Urological Clinic of Valdosta for a routine procedure, I experienced great anxiety and was beyond nervous. Dr. Chiang and his nurses Ashley, Tammy, Nina, and Angela did everything they could to calm my fears and make the visit as pleasurable as possible. Dr. Chiang and his staff are great at what they do and it truly shows in their style of care!

Christmas is over when December 25th is over so if people want to take their decorations down the day after that's fine. There is a reason for this day and it is mainly because of commercialism this has changed into a month, or longer, celebration.

A huge RAVE for Dr. Roan and his staff. They are very professional and very caring with their patients. I took both my kids there to have their wisdom teeth removed and I am very thankful for service we received!

Every time I read comments online posted towards certain articles, I am just saddened by how insensitive people can be. The comments I just read about Ashley Paulk's retirement are a good example. He is a good man, and he did a great job for our community. I bet those making negative remarks about him have been held accountable by him for something they did wrong. Grow up, people!

Shame on the law enforcement for pulling over taxis and giving out tickets to the passengers in them. At least they're being safe instead of driving!

Hope all VSU students open their eyes, remove all ear buds, turn off the I phones and really look, not only left and right but behind also when crossing streets around campus. Just because there are striped pedestrian crossing marks on the street doesn't mean you can just blithely step into vehicular traffic with no consequences. Take responsibility for your actions. The life you save may very well be your own.

    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.

    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.
