Rant & Raves for Wednesday, January 30, 2013

VALDOSTA — Rave to Wesley at Griner Nissan for going above and beyond with his customer service on  getting my Nissan fixed. More people should be like him.

I would like to take the time to thank the ladies at Advanced Disposal for their kindness and patience. I called numerous times and spoke with Stephanie, Tiffany and Pam and they are always polite and get my problems solved. Kudos, ladies. Thank you!

Rave to the young gentleman who changed my left front tire in the WalMart parking lot. Thanks Jimmy L. and God bless. Restores my belief that there are still great people in the world.

I wish to thank the Valdosta City or Lowndes County street maintenance program for placing yellow lines and reflectors on turn-off roads on North Valdosta Road. These features are a great benefit to residents making turns at night! Thanks again and good job!

Many thanks to the gentleman at the State Patrol License Renewal desk that helped my mother with her license renewal last week. (I'm sorry I didn't get his name.) She had every document possible to get her license, but her address had changed due to 911 in Lanier County. His patience and willingness to help was so very much appreciated! Good job, GSP!

It's so nice to see Pet Smart allowing dogs to be adopted in front of their store. I wish they would do that every Saturday and Sunday, if possible, for animals waiting on death row at the animal shelter.

A rave to a hidden gem of a restaurant in this area — the Ravine at Kinderlou Forest. In this city overpopulated with fast-food places, it is nice to have a restaurant that knows what gourmet food is and should be. The food is truly awesome and the service excellent. It is open to the public and I  highly recommend it.

    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!
