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.

    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.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.
