Rant & Rave for Monday, March 18, 2013

-- — Laws should be reinforced when dogs are roaming the streets. There is a leash law, yet, I see numerous dogs either dead by the road or will be. It also causes wrecks from us trying to avoid hitting them. Please fine these owners and take their dogs!

Dear Kinderlou neighbor, why should our property manager have to send you a letter asking you to trim your bushes? Take some pride in your home!

Will the owner of the little brown-rust colored dog that hangs at McDonald's and Family Dollar near the overpass, please get it before someone hits it or it is killed? That is a very busy area and it is lucky to have made it so far. If you don't want it, give it to someone that will take care of it since you don't.

In regards to the paper's recent article about Wild Adventures opening back up, it actually didn't start with a love of flowers and trees. HFE may have but not Wild Adventures. It all started with a giraffe named Bongo and a man named Kent who worked very hard.

So SGMC can buy land and build more buildings but can't offer decent wages or retirement? And they wonder why so many employees leave — especially nurses! Wake Up! If you want to keep your people, then treat them well. Basic Business 101.

To the Educator complaining about being asked to take work home. When you went to school all those years you knew teachers (who cared) took work home. If you did not want to do that you should have found another career. And many doctors and Accountants don't take work home but they have to work more than 190 days a year for a full year’s pay.

    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.

    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.
