Rant & Raves for Wednesday, January 23, 2013

VALDOSTA — Since Wednesday is a day to rave, I would like to rave about two ladies who deal with the public and go way beyond their job. Lindsey at the Water Department and Shay at the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department. These ladies do a fine job. Thanks to both of you. Your help was greatly appreciated.

Rave to Valdosta School of Ballet’s “Cinderella” ballet performance with VSU’s Theatre and Dance Department: What a treat! This was truly a magical and enchanting performance! Thank you!

Praise to The Valdosta Symphony’s Guild’s Tunes for Tots — thank you to all the amazing musicians for such an opportunity! This was not just for tots but a great experience for adults, too! It was so neat to see VSO Music Director Howard Hsu, Concertmaster Nina Lutz and other amazing professionals take the stage with the children in beautiful performances!

Kudos to Theatre Guild Valdosta’s production of “The Trip to Bountiful” — what an awesome and moving performance by the entire cast especially Joanne Griner! Way to go!

Really enjoyed the article on Eames Yates. It was very interesting and we are lucky to have him in our area.

A huge rave to Dave and all the crew at Miller’s Hardware, downtown. Dave took my plumbing problem as if it were his own and fixed it far more simply than what I had in mind, saving me a lot of money. No one provides better service!

Simba was our cashier at Target the other night, and I just wanted to commend him for being great at his job. He was so friendly to me and my little boy. Great seeing someone with such a good personality. Simba, you’re going to go far in this life! Keep up your awesome work.

    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.

    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!
