Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014

-- — About the school zone lights at Valdosta Middle School...why are they even there?! There are no children anymore that are allowed to walk to school. The only people that crossing guard is helping across the road are college students. If by college they can't figure out how to safely get across a street, maybe they should have stayed home.

It is sad to see that Richard Raines has decided to not run for another term with the county commission. We need a responsive person like him in office. While I respect his decision, and counted on his decision making ability, I have to disagree with him that the county is in the good hands of its current administrators. We need educated people, with new ideas to take the county into the future. It is time for the “old guard” to step aside, and take with them the policies that have kept the county from progressing.

Good luck to the person in regards to not getting Atlanta news. I have written, called and contacted our representatives and people in the know. They say where I live  just south east of Valdosta that the air wave is owned out of Tallahassee. It is sad we have to watch everything out of Tallahassee. It would be great if we could get news out of Atlanta or anywhere in Georgia.

I would like to commend Dr. Harrell and his remarkable staff this Saturday by showing of their extreme devotion, caring and compassion when we had to send our precious ShihTsu to his final resting place. Professionalism and patient care are paramount. Thank you again for the love and care you demonstrated with us and baby RJ, y’all are the greatest.

How in the world does Lowndes County Public Works always scrape our roads right before it rains and not after? All it makes me do is  ride in a bunch of mud. And I am so sick and tired of that.

    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!
