Rant & Rave for Friday, Dec. 6, 2013

VALDOSTA — I don't know if Dasher or the County is responsible for the speed bumps on Dasher Road, but they need to put the sign warning of the bump 30 feet before. I was going the speed limit on that road at night and couldn't stop before hitting one. If my car is damaged, I'll be send the bill to the responsible place. It was the first time being on that road.

To GA Medicaid, expecting the elderly to submit renewals, changes online for Medicaid/Food stamps or calling the new customer service line in which you spend 45 minutes to 2 hours on hold (if you’re not disconnected) is ridiculous! Our elderly deserve better than this!

Restaurant inspections are still on South Health District's website (which was recently updated!) under "Restaurant Inspections" on the front page. If you can't find it call their public information officer and I'm sure she'll be happy to help.

The Brooks County Sheriff Office website has been down for six months or more. Why isn't Brooks county following the law in OCGA 42-1-12(i)(3)(E) which says they must maintain and make available a sex offender registry on their website? Who do I contact at the state level to force the Brooks County Sheriff to follow the law?

Don’t get your "Pet Dander" upset. I am a retired senior citizen, worked all my life and never had one penny of public assistance. All I have left is two pets, 10 and 14 years old. Pets often keep you living when you have no one else. I was just wishing for help, and I will be praying for you. God bless.

Why is some ranter trying to mix the SPLOST and ESPLOST in with the Shop Local program? SPLOST and ESPLOST raise money so city leaders can take trips to seminars and conventions in other places. Shop Local is just shop local.

    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!

    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.
