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.

    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.
