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.

    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.
