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.

    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.

    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.
