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.

    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.
