Raves for Wednesday, April 10, 2013

VALDOSTA — For computer printer cartridges, etc... there's no better place than Southern Printer Cartridge on Baytree Road in Valdosta. Their great prices and customer service always bring me back. Great local business!

Hats of to Ret. B.Gen. USAF  Troy Tolbert. He consistently has wonderful editorials in the paper.  The one to Floyd Rose is simply outstanding. Thank you, Mr. Tolbert. Keep up the good work.

I am so glad we are finally getting a Dollar General in Naylor. Now that is progress.

A big rave to Stephanie at Winn Dixie in the pharmacy  on the Madison Highway. She has been so nice to my family and  to everybody she comes in contact with. She is truly a  pharmacy technician professional. My hats off to her.

Thank you to the VDT for such a very nice article on the VHS Wildcats! I for one am an avid Wildcat fan, regardless. Valdosta is so blessed to have such a team that has and always will be the team every other team tries to be competitive with.

What was remarkable about the T.C. Williams high school story was the hiring of a black head football coach during the turbulent times of integration. A milestone yet to be realized in Valdosta 42 years later.

Thanks Valdosta Times for the listing of local thrift stores in last Sunday's paper. A friend and I made a day of it and found the most delightful folks operating these small businesses and some inexpensive and very cute “treasures.” A special thanks to Ronda and Ray at Nufound Treasures on Northside Drive. Very good prices and some neat stuff! What a fun way to support our local folks!

Trisha, the young girl that wears glasses, works at Fazoli's off Exit 18 Valdosta is one of the most professional customer service workers that I have ever come in contact with. In my 35 years in the Customer Service field, Trisha truly knows how to serve her customers to make sure they return. Excellent job, Trisha.

I commend the Times for doing what very few media outlets are doing these days... searching for the truth. Without responsible investigative reporting, the public is either left to devise conspiracy theories or simply believing the lies they are told. On a national level, I believe the media is complicit in covering the truth. This is journalistic treason. The public deserves the truth. Whether they can handle it or not is a different matter.

    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!

    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.
