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.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    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.
