Rant & Raves for Wednesday, February 6, 2013

VALDOSTA — My child was recently very sick and we went to Smith Northview Hospital emergency room. I would like to thank Nurse Mandy Anderson, Georgia Cochran, Dr. Thomas and all of the staff that did such a wonderful job caring for my child. The concern, kindness and professionalism shown by the staff is much appreciated. Well done, Smith Northview. God bless you and your families.

AnneMarie in the technology department at WalMart was knowledgeable, efficient, and helpful as I was searching for a cell phone. She went so far as to call and set everything up for me. She was kind and courteous and went above and beyond what was necessary. She deserves a pat on the back!

I would like to rave about the servers we had at Texas Road House Saturday. They went above and beyond. The young man was very sure to say, yes ma’am. He was very well mannered. Will definitely be going back!

I love Dean’s article on the dump. We will miss the personnel at the dump, too. They are always friendly.

Much thanks to all who worked in the freezing cold to restore a broken water line.

I want to praise the City of Valdosta trash and yard clippings pickup workers. They do a great job!!

Rebecca at ADC, thank you so much for caring. You’re the best.

A huge rave to Kendrick at Verizon. He was very helpful and on top of my issue. ... thank you.

Thanks to the firefighters and everyone and the couple who stopped  first to help me and my family  when my  house and barn was burning. Please stop back by so I can let you know how thankful we are.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    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!
