Raves for Wednesday, May 29, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor’s Note: In 2013, Wednesdays will be  rave-only days. Thank you to our readers for your support.

A great big thank you to all the ladies who planned, prepared and served the food at the honors program at Berrien Middle School tennis team. It was an awesome evening. Thank you very much!

Brooks County has a great building inspector, Mr. Billy Ingram. He is professional, courteous, and daily dependable on the job. A big rave for him.

A great big rave at Monica at the gas pumps at Sam’s Club and Michael who works in the tire shop who gave services above and beyond their duties to help me when one of my kittens jumped out from under my truck. He rode under the truck from  Lake Park without me knowing. They assisted me greatly. Sam’s Club is lucky to have both of them.

Many thanks to the gentleman who paid for my breakfast at Waffle House at Five Points Tuesday morning. You made my day and prove  there are angels here. God bless you and I will pay it forward.

This is a great big thank you to Papa John’s in Valdosta for the kindness shown to our students in special education at Valdosta High School. They went above and beyond to serve our students and provide them with a great experience. Thank you!

Many thanks to EMTs Courtney and Russell for their kind bedside manner and helpfulness when I was feeling pretty silly for calling 911. It is sometimes difficult to know what action to take when confronted with something painful or unusual, and they assured me that I had done the correct thing. I tried to remain calm and cooperative and their demeanor and respect made it so much easier.

Just want to thank EMC for having Karen in the warehouse. Everytime I need electric run to one of my houses she is on top of it and always has a great attitude.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    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!
