Rant & Raves for Wednesday, December 12, 2012

-- — Raves to VHS’s social studies dept. for encouraging their students to go see “Lincoln” this weekend, by offering them extra credit. Thank you teachers for taking time out of your weekend to “take attendance” in the lobby. Great, worthwhile movie.

Congrats to the VSU blazers for the great win this past Saturday in the cold at Minnesota. You are great ambassadors for Winnersville, you play the game the right way and never quit. One more win to cap off your TRULY GREAT YEAR!


Businesses leaving Lake Park? Consider coming to the North end of the County, in particular the City of Hahira. It is a nice community, and we have plenty of space for businesses; come and be part of "Hive".

The Nativity put on by A Time to Dance Performing Arts Studio was an amazing show! Many talented dancers and a wonderful director.

I agree we should shop locally. There are many different items and some are handmade by artists;  but we need to have better hours and even Saturday hours to shop there.

To the person who lives in the county crying because your pigs were shot: Here is an idea, keep your animals in your yard. Nobody wants pigs, wild or not, roaming in their yard or down the street where children play. Take some responsibility.

Why is it when I drive around this town, there are always fire hydrants spewing water for days on end?

A huge RAVE to the Berrien High School Symphonic Ensemble winter concert Thursday night. Conductor Mr. Chris Harper continues to challenge and grow his musicians and they continue to meet his challenge. It was an evening many will never forget.

Many teachers are frustrated because they cannot teach their students what they need to know in order to get a higher education and better jobs. This doesn't make them bad teachers. They are frustrated by politicos dictating what they need to teach. Sounds like you are comfortable spouting the party line, and simply “teaching to the test.” Maybe it's you that should find another profession?

To the ranters complaining about it taking a long time for EMS to get to them. You can thank your fellow residents of Lowndes County and the surrounding areas who tie EMS up with non-emergencies for that.

    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!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
