Raves for Wednesday, July 24, 2013

VALDOSTA — I was having trouble with my cell phone last week so I went to Best Buy to get help. The employee that helped me was Conner. He was such a gentleman and was so courteous and friendly. I am elderly and truly appreciate him. There needs to be more employees like Conner in more stores! He fixed my phone in a jiffy and did not want a dime. Thank you so much.

A big “Way to Go” to Wild Adventures! They decided to put public safety over profits when they had the spill the other day.

Rave to Dr. Hobby and his staff. They are so helpful. He is a wonderful doctor and also he is cute.

I would like to rave about Zacadoo’s on Baytree. I have never met a more friendly and effective drive thru staff.

Thanks to the stranger that stopped me in Walmart Friday afternoon and blessed me with $20 to help buy my son some school supplies. I refused it but she said it was her good deed for the day! I was shocked ... blessings in disguise ... thanks once again.

Thanks to Joe P. and the Humane Society for fighting for the well-being of animals in our area. Even the smallest gesture brings about big changes in the animal world!

Big thank you to Dawn P. who works at Citizens Community Bank in Hahira. Thank you for all of your help and time!

Thanks to Val in ER at Smith-Northview and Dr. Coleman for taking good care of me. They are like guardian angels.

My sincerest thanks to Dr. Moreno, a truly compassionate and caring doctor with an incredible staff. I hold the highest regards for all those employed at Valdosta medical clinic. Thank you each and everyone.

I would like to rave on Concept Nails. I arrived at 7:47 p.m. needing a pedicure, full set and eyebrow wax. They closed at 8; however, they did not turn me around and did not rush providing me my services and I’m truly appreciative of the wonderful customer service and professionalism that I received. Way to go. I will be back!

This is a rave to all the hard-working employees in and around Lowndes County, who are over worked, under paid, as well as under appreciated. Keep your head up and keep believing that what goes around, comes around.

I have the hardest working and sweetest hairdresser in the South. She always wears a smile and tries to please. Thanks, Mary Catherine H., for being the best.

    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.

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