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.

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
