Raves for Wednesday, April 3, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor’s Note: In 2013, Wednesdays will be rave-only days. Thank you to our readers for your support.

I would like to give a big rave to Mama June’s for hiring such a polite and respectful young lady named Maria. My husband and I are seniors and we have been going to Mama June’s since it opened. You don't find many young people so nice. Keep up the good work.

I must send a rave for Advanced Disposal. We have had impeccable service, on time and neatly done.

A big rave to Crossing Jordan Baptist Church for hosting First Christian Church on the Wednesday evening of Holy Week. Wow! Your opening songs moved us literally and figuratively! I just hope we can return the hospitality and host your choir and Dr. Mathis at First Christian.

A big rave and thanks to VSU and the professors for their excellent Science Saturday programs. My son has enjoyed all of them and looks forward to each new one.

I would like to thank the honest staff at Publix on Gornto Road. While walking through Publix with my two kids and grandmother, my $10 fell out of my pocket and I did not realize until I was at the next store. When I returned, I was told an employee had turned in $10 that was found on the floor. I really appreciate everyone’s honesty and integrity. Thank you to the staff at Publix!

Huge rave to the super friendly staff at the new Publix on Inner Perimeter. They have done a fabulous job making me feel welcome when I'm in the store, from the baggers to the cashiers to the managers. Thank you!

I, too, give a rave to Deep South. I started using them when the owner came to my door to introduce himself and offer his services. This is a wonderful family operation. Keep up the good work!

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
