Raves for Wednesday, October 9, 2013

VALDOSTA — I am a breast cancer survivor  and would like to thank Verna  at First America for helping me get through it all and listened even if I wanted to talk. Thank you so much!

Best customer service I have seen in Valdosta is at Office Max! Thank you, Megan for being so patient and understanding!

I cannot thank Dr. Bill Moorman enough for repairing my broken (front) tooth, and allowing me to be able to smile at my daughter's upcoming wedding. He did something I didn't think could be done. Thank you so much!

I want to thank Cook County for Vietnam Veterans group for their dedication and hard work in bringing the moving Vietnam War Memorial to Adel. More than 20,000 visitors came to pay their respects to soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. It was a memorable experience and the meal provided to Vietnam veterans was superb.

Big Danny and Little Danny at the Napa store on Northside Dr. are just amazing. We appreciate what they do for their customers and we will return there. They are just pleasant and we will return.

Thanks to the lady in the Chick-Fil-A drive Thru who paid for my son’s ice cream. It was a special treat for him. When we pulled up to pay, the nice lady had paid for it. Thank you and God bless you.

I love all my doctors here in Valdosta, but I must give a big RAVE to Dr. H. Logan Brooks and his staff on North Crossing Circle. They put me instantly at ease, and carried through like clock work, and gave me good news at the end. All were very professional, and also very nice.

Thanks to all the volunteer sports, cheerleading coaches for all you do. It's a lot of work. A special thanks to the Titletown Titans Mighty Mites division coaches, Coach Glenn and his assistants. You have done a great job with these kids.

    Thank you, Mayor Gayle, for hitting the nail on the head about lack of funding to repair the Wastewater Treatment Plant. When citizens vote against raising revenue, then the only alternative is to increase water/sewer rates. Mayor Gayle, we appreciate that you care for our city’s elderly and those on fixed incomes who can’t afford a doubling or tripling of their water/sewer bills. SPLOST is funded by out-of-town sales tax, and protects the most financially vulnerable of our citizens.

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    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.
