Raves for Wednesday, July 31, 2013

VALDOSTA — Saturday afternoon  I had the pleasure of gong to a graduation at the Refuge of Hope in Quitman. I would like to give a shout out to the Squires who are able to have such a wonderful program for young men. I strongly recommend you go see the beauty of this program and details concerning this program. Thanks again.

Hats off to Alyssa at Winn Dixie in Lake Park. One of her co-workers was yelling at her in front of me, a customer, and she was listening to her and saying yes ma'am and still was as sweet to me as she could be. Young children would have yelled back but she took this rudeness with dignity.

Big Rave for Luanne Bryant Smith, the best workers compensation attorney in Valdosta. On behalf of my family and myself, I thank you for your endless loyalty to my case. Your hard work ethics, perseverance, tenacious memory of facts and details makes you a champion in your profession. Without you I would have lost everything. Thanks for calling out big business and caring about my family and their future.

A big rave out to all those who work at Lowndes County Animal Shelter. I adopted a dog a few days ago and everyone was helpful, professional and showed sincere care for the animals. If you're looking for a dog or cat, give shelters a look and maybe a second chance for a pet.

Thanks to the Times for running the article on "Medical Firms to Report Financial Deal With Doctors." Patients should have the right to know if their doctors, hospitals or other healthcare businesses are being paid by certain drug companies or a financial interest in what they prescribe. Payments such as travel, entertainment, etc. is crooked and wrong.

    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!”
