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.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    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!
