Rant & Rave for Monday, March 19, 2012

-- — Why are some Valdostans so concerned about the speed that people are driving? I drive slow and get around town just fine. I haven’t got into any accidents. I save on gas and gas money. If I have an emergency, yeah, I’ll put the pedal to the metal. But why is everyone in such a rush? Is everybody in some kind of emergency? I don’t think so. Slow down, would you? Remember, speed kills!

Jungle Jyms, why on earth do you charge adults for a birthday party? This  makes no sense. If I am taking a 4-year-old child, most of the time they will have a parent with them. Jumpin’ Jacks and Leapin’ Lizards don’t  charge!

A big rave to Trina Pattullo and all of the teachers at Josiah Christian School. The children love you and so do the parents. We’re behind you.

If you look like you’re 90 and still able to drive, it seems that you would know enough by now to use your blinkers and turn on your lights when it’s raining.

A huge rave for the First Annual Kinderlou Kampout! A great time was had by all. Thanks!

Thank you Duck family on Gornto Road for once again dressing Miss Duck in seasonally appropriate attire. I especially enjoyed last month’s patriotic theme.

The rude comment to the new principal was uncalled for. All new chief administrators evaluate and make changes. Some clean house while others just tweak. He’s not expected to come in and just let the school operate just as it is now. What would be the point in hiring him if that were the case? He’s not Mr. Taylor nor is he expected to be (or is he?).

Just because your kid is honor roll or gifted doesn’t mean that they have good behavior! You should see your little darling in action.

    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.
