Rant & Raves for Wednesday, January 30, 2013

The Valdosta Daily Times

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.
