Raves for Wednesday, August 7, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor’s Note: In 2013, Wednesdays will be  rave-only days. Thank you to our readers for your support.

As an employee of SGMC, I'm thankful to have a job and good benefits unlike those who worked for one of the many hospitals that were forced to close their doors in 2013. Just a few: Long Island College Hospital, Lakeside Memorial Hospital, Earl K. Long Medical Center, and closer to home Calhoun Memorial Hospital. I bet the employees of those facilities would gladly sacrifice some benefits to maintain employment.

I would like to rave about Steve at Zacadoo's on Inner Perimeter. He is always so nice and makes you feel like he really appreciates you coming by. This is why I am a regular! Great job, Steve, we appreciate you!

Just a quick thank you to all the volunteer firemen. Knowing that while you have families at home you still respond to even the most insignificant calls ensuring the safety of others. Because of what you do those of us in the county are safer.

Big RAVE to the people that work at Waffle House at 5 Points. My daughter and I stopped there the other night when we were in Valdosta after a long day of doctor appointments. The people  were so kind to us.

Thanks to the Valdosta Fire Department for coming out to my home and installing three smoke detectors and taking the time to talk to us about them. My family really appreciates it.

I would like to thank Lorrie at Valdosta Medical Clinic for helping me with my account. She was very kind, understanding and professional.

I'm with you on the Animal Shelter. Just got the most precious little rat terrier and all it cost was $105. Saved her life and she brought joy to ours! You'll never meet nicer people than the ones that volunteer their time to the shelter. Please support the shelter!

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”
