Rant & Rave for Monday, April 1, 2013

-- — Just to let the person know that the light on Burton Avenue to Oak Street doesn’t take long if you stay behind the white like where you are supposed to stay.  It activates the sensor under your vehicle.

The service from Advanced Disposal is ridiculous. Trash pickup and recycle pickup are supposed to be on Thursdays. Trash pickup last week happened Friday and recycle did not happen until Saturday. They had several months to plan and increase their trucks and drivers but did not do it.

Just because someone could be a grandmother at 35 doesn’t mean a thing. She could have had a child at 17 or 18 and her child had the grandchild at 18. Just because you maybe didn't want a child till you were 30, doesn't mean other people wait and it also doesn't mean they were pregnant out of wedlock.

Valwood is a private school. If they choose to allow some students to attend on scholarships, that's their right. It's also a big way to garner attention for the school and increase enrollment. Everyone wants to go to a winning school. I do agree that if people are getting athletic scholarships, then there should also be academic scholarships. But again, if you don't like it, there are two  other high schools and many middle and elementary schools to send your child to instead.

To all that have waste piling and nowhere to take it because dump sites are closed and the new garbage company doesn't show, trust in our leaders. Saw in the paper they said it's safe to dump extremely large amounts of waste in the Withlacoochee. Seriously, instead please Keep Lowndes Valdosta Beautiful. Fire our leaders.

VSU is spending over $30,000 to celebrate a guy who has been here for nine months, but won't spend any time or money to celebrate a guy who was here for 40+ years. What a shame. We miss you, Chef Earnie, you deserve better.

    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!

    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.
