Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 31, 2012

The Valdosta Daily Times

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.

Just finished reading “Must Win,” the book on the Valdosta Wildcats. I thought it was a great book. This book showed Valdosta’s love of the ’Cats and football. As a 1974 graduate, I still love my ’Cats. Living in Texas, I don't get to see many games but check papers every Sat. So, go ’Cats, and never never quit!

Thanks to the young man with the red shirt that helped push my car off the street by the mall on Saturday. I really appreciate it.
