Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 31, 2012

VALDOSTA — My child was admitted to the hospital on Christmas Eve on SGMC’s second Floor. They had Santa to come around and give a gift. That was really nice of them. I would like to say thank you.

Thank you for the interview with Santa Claus article.

What a wonderful organization the Elks Lodge is. They fed my whole family recently and sent us home with several hundred dollars worth of  groceries and gave all my kids presents. I don’t know what we would have done with them. Thank you, Valdosta Elks Lodge!

Thanks to the person who brought my daughter breakfast last Saturday. Her son had just got out of the hospital and it was so appreciated.

A huge rave to the house in Pebble Creek with the Rudolph display. What a treat for all the kids in the neighborhood! Thanks for all the hard work!

Smaller government in Lowndes County means the commissioners believe they have the right to sign my name to a garbage collection contract.

I watched a Lowndes County Constable on Wednesday  drive in and out of traffic on North Valdosta Road, driving faster than the posted speed limit, and tailgating drivers. I found that to be extremely unprofessional. May I suggest that you set the example for others and drive appropriately instead of making people think that it’s OK because if you can do it, so can they.

Way to go, Adel. Lets pave the roads not used and leave the main roads to our hospitals and schools a mess. Good thinking.

City of Valdosta, please get your traffic camera website fixed. It is a shame that half the cameras don't even work, and now it's down completely. Is this how a "metro" area does things?

The county doesn't have to spend tax dollars on letter head paper, they can make a letterhead template in their word processor. They could at least look professional.

    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.
