Rant & Rave for Friday, Aug. 9, 2013

-- — Wait until the employees find out that SGMC allowed approximately 25 (50 with spouses) board, management and doctors to attend the VHA meeting in Florida in late spring. The venue was the Ritz Carlton. I understand they had to have their own room for meals. What do you think the bill was for 50 people for three days for meals, drinks, etc.?

The parents of those elite high school sorority girls in Saturday’s paper must be so proud. Pacifiers and pregnant bellies. Nice.

If the hours at SGMC have not been cut then why have I lost 24 hours off my next paycheck because I have been called off on my scheduled days? That is no rumor.

People complaining about salaries at SGMC, if you don't like it, quit. There are people out there who need a good job.

Stop the complaining about salary adjustments at Valdosta State. Helping those who make the least and the lower end salaries is not a bad thing. Great job VSU, for taking care of your employees.

Rename the Withlacoochee River to the Whiff-of-the-stinky River.

Does the City of Hahira have a code enforcement division? I'm tired of seeing Hahira "leaders" allow folks to live in their RV campers. Hahira seems to allow this to go on in people’s yards and even in the city's industrial park. These officials have been turning their heads on this matter for over a year now and it is getting worse.  

I'd vote against SPLOST, but I don't think I could take another year of childish pouting from the Times editorial board.

Congress has a mountain of work on their plate and now they take a five week break. This is exactly why big government is not, and will never be, as effective as the private sector.

    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!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.
