Rant & Rave for Friday, Jan. 17, 2014

VALDOSTA — Sure Valdosta and/or Lowndes County, start up your own cable company. Then the Rant and Rave can fill up with people complaining of increased taxes, missing the same channels, and a bill that is the same amount. Only difference is higher taxes.

A HUGE rave to the staff at Dr. Robinson's Dental Office in Hahira. After many bad experiences with dentists in the Valdosta area, it is so refreshing to go somewhere with a friendly staff and knowledgeable doctor. Special shout out to Stacey, thank you for restoring my faith in the dental profession!

The situation in New Jersey is a perfect example of what's wrong with our government where the citizens are being punished for their voting decisions. It doesn't matter who's in charge. If you vote for the wrong person, you will be crippled.

I went to the ER at SGMC this week, and they only had one doctor and six nurses in the whole ER! How are they supposed to take care of sick people like that!

Before you complain to the paramedics for why they drove past your house, why don't you be sure to put up address markers that are visible from the road during the day and night.

Thanks to Diamond Realty for their opening concerns of renting of apartments to the students. We have had a long problem with it. They asked us to call any time we had a problem.

Someone needs to check the school zone flashing light at Valdosta Middle School. They do not correspond with the signs. Either the signs need to be changed or the lights schedule needs to be changed to correspond with the proper time.   It is  confusing and unsafe.

It is so sad we in south Georgia cannot get the Atlanta news. We would like to know what is going on at the capitol in our state and not in Tallahassee. We need help with this.

Mr. Jones, bus driver for Lowndes County school bus for Loch Laurel Road, we will miss you so much. You were such a sweet, wonderful driver.

Sears Automotive mechanics: they were wonderful. They worked on my car and let me know what was going on. They  were super nice.

    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!”
