Rant & Raves for Wednesday, January 23, 2013

The Valdosta Daily Times

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.

Thank you to SGMC for sending a refund check to my elderly parents. They overpaid for a hospital stay, and SGMC sent them a refund check in the mail. Honesty and integrity noted. Thank you so much.

To the person that found my wife’s wallet and returned via the USPS fully intact, thank you. It is nice to know there are still such decent people in our crumbling world.

Nine of us ate at Heidi’s today. Great food. Let’s support businesses in that area of Hill Avenue during the overpass construction! Use Savannah Avenue, or I used River Street.
