Rant & Raves for Wednesday, February 20, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor's Note: Throughout 2013, The Times has committed to only publishing raves on Wednesdays. We want to hear your positive comments, South Georgia.

Thank you Valdosta Times for pubishing what local Govt. does with our tax money. We need all the information you can give. The Times is our only source of what’s going on in local govt.

Thank you to S. L. Mason Elementary School for putting on a great Valentine’s Dance for moms and dads. The decorations were beautiful. We had such a great time.

A big rave to G & G Family Medicine in Valdosta for being open on Saturday and Sunday. The options of a weekend walk-in clinic are slim in this area and I am thankful for all the staff at this office and Dr. Faircloth.

Praises to Joe Mckinley, Mr. Whitehead and the rest of the guys who serve in the sanitation department. They  take pride in their work and I can assure you, they are appreciated.

Gabriella at Cheddars made our night. Excellent service! Thanks!

A big rave for Star Parker. We need more like her who are not afraid to write the truth and cause us to think for ourselves.

Rave to the woman who lives at the corner of Jerry Jones  and McRee, you work so hard  on your yard and it is so beautiful. I drive that route just to look at it.

Kudos to Cunningham Tree Service who came out and trimmed the lines for Colquitt Electric Co. They did  an outstanding job and cleaned up all of their cuttings when they were done.

I want to send a shout out to the Turner Arts Center for a wonderful show last week. Hooray for Hollywood had great singing, dancing and costumes.

I cannot overstate how pleased I am with Adcanced Diaposal services. Has it been without a hitch? No. But the customer service folks there have been very professional, very knowledgeable, and very responsive. They deserve time to work the kinks out and a little patience on our part will help them.

Thank you, Dr. Owusu, for taking such good care of my father and for listening to our concerns. You found a blood clot other doctors had overlooked.

    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.
