Rant & Rave for Tuesday, April 16, 2013

-- — The Times is great in reporting truths uncovered, but should not put wrecks in the paper.

We need school superintendents and administrators that are concerned with education and learning and not the politics of their position or future positions. It is very evident that many school administrations are riding the wave to the next position.

Are bruises and holes in the wall not enough to have someone charged for domestic violence or at least have them leave the home? In Lake Park, I was told no by a deputy on different accounts because I was married. Family domestic violence is a huge issue and is a very serious matter but if the law won't protect you and your children who will? One day it may be too late then who is to blame!?

If a high school player has a problem with their coach, they shouldn't take to Twitter (or other social media) and vent their feelings. Especially when that means using profanity. Not the way to go about doing business. That just goes to show you how immature the child really is. Discuss the matter with your coach and in private. And if you don't have something nice to say, then don't say (or type) anything.

A friendly, loving and lasting hug is being sent to KJ’s family. We all need answers. We (other moms) are still with sadness and fear too.

The Boys and Girls Club of Valdosta is having a BBQ fundraiser, and I hope they are planning on using some of that money for the Lake Laurie complex. It is in need of some up keep. The fields are in bad shape. There are holes in the fence and netting around all the fields. The restrooms are spider infested, and you are very lucky to find soap or paper towels. So, I really hope they find it in their wallets to bring some of that money to Lake Laurie where the parents are paying to have their kids play sports.

    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.

    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!”
