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.

    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.
