Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Dec. 24, 2013

--- — Congratulations to Cathy who sells appliances at Lowe’s on her 10-year anniversary working there.

Thanks to Cedric at Harvey’s on Bemiss Road for turning in my purse to management. I left it in a buggy. Thank you very much. I tried to give him a reward for it but he refused to take it. There are still good people. I had my bill money and everything else in there. God bless you, Cedric.

Colson Printing did it again. They gave the public a beautiful calendar. Thanks again to Wendy and staff.

My husband and I moved here from Jacksonville where there is a Publix on every street corner, and the one on Gornto is still the best. Special thanks to Santiago in the Deli, Rodney in the meat department, and Dylan who works up front.

I  just moved to Valdosta, Ga. I am with Moody Air Force Base. I was having trouble with my new car and someone told me to go see Jim Norton at Ray Norton Auto Center. He researched my car and said there was a recall and warranty on my car. Now that is customer service and one honest person. God will always take care of this business. Thank you, Jim. A car passed everyone speeding on Perimeter in a 45 zone and a cop going the other way ignored it. I see this all the time. I guess he was going after his meal.

That guy from “Duck Dynasty” had every right to say what he said and A&E has every right to fire him if they don’t like what he said.

Georgia Power appreciates you blaming their rate hike on the President. They’ve raised rates every year for years. Were those Obama’s fault, too?

I do not see charter schools versus teachers. Both sides are battling the same thing. If the class size is 10 or 50, four disruptive students taking 15 minutes of each class hour to deal with, takes 50 days out of each 200-day school year. Those four disruptive students rob the other students of a quarter of their learning time, and exhaust teachers. Teachers and charter schools both want to ditch those four students. Unfortunately, teachers can’t.

AIDS once killed Americans daily. Today it is relegated to an epidemic only affecting poor countries. How quickly we conveniently forget.

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
