Rant & Raves for Thursday, January 31 2013

The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — City of Valdosta: How long are you going to let the caution lights at the  Bennie's Alley crosswalk stay covered with trash bags? It's only a matter of time before someone gets hit.

I mean really, the only thing Obama has passed Bush in is creating three times more debt and an even more sluggish economy. He also done that in his first term. Let's talk about all the job creation, oh my bad there isn't any. The lesser idiot here would be the Romney voter.

How about this weather? Get out, enjoy it, share your light and remember, we all relax in different ways.

To the person who stated Obama must have gotten a C in civics: I guess Mitt Romney must've gotten an F.

To the citizens ranting about burn permits. Burn permits are issued by the Georgia Forestry Commission. While I agree, I too have questioned why permits were issued. It is based on the people obtaining the permits to use "sound judgment.” If you feel that the wind is too strong, then don't burn; weather can change in a hurry. GFC must also use their      good judgment locally, not out of an office in Macon.

Thank you to the employees at Advanced Auto on Bemiss next to Sonic. They are always helpful with installing parts for ladies that have no idea what we are looking at under the hood. I'm also very grateful that even though it was almost closing time, they helped me check a bad battery and installed it for me. I just want them to know I really appreciated knowing that my car would start the next morning for work due to their helpfulness.

PetSmart does have adoptions almost every Saturday and Sunday. If not outside, check inside. Both the animal shelter and BARC Humane Society are represented. Don't forget to spay or neuter your pets and there wouldn't be such a need for this.

Thumbs up to Kerry

Scarbrough for standing up for the little guy

who is trying to make a living.
