Rant & Rave for Friday, Aug. 16, 2013

-- — To the one saying we need certain franchise restaurants, etc. My answer to you is - open one!

Rave to South Georgia Medical Associates for bringing on a new cardiologist. He is from Fitzgerald, GA. Welcome to Valdosta, Dr. William Douglas Luke.

Can the Traffic Mgt. Office go back and reset the traffic lights?

Where is the money coming from that now pays for all  student meals at Valdosta City Schools? How can Lowndes County get in on that? My children thankfully get reduced prices (not thankful for the reason why.), but free would be nice. We work hard and this economy has kicked us just about as low as we can get.

Don't get  dogs if you can't take care of them! Be careful who you give them to, if you must. Treat them as you would want to be treated. They are loyal, loving and sometimes save lives.

I would like to thank all those volunteer coaches that help teach our kids. This includes any person who volunteers for football, baseball, cheer, soccer, whatever! It takes a lot of work to have practices, games, get calls and texts all day from parents. I would especially like to thank the Titletown Titans coaches for all age groups. You've had our boys out there working hard for 3 months now, with no pay and no "benefits." My son is one of the older members but we see you all working with kids from 6 years to 12 years. It is much appreciated!!!

The grass downtown in Quitman is not kept up and the roads need repairing. What is going on in Quitman and what are our elected officials doing with the money?

OK, LHS fans. Now that they have marked off the tailgate area in 40 ft. spots for football games, be prepared to pay for the spots. What's next?

    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!
