Raves for Wednesday, March 13, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor’s Note: In 2013, Wednesdays will be rave-only days. Thank you to our readers for your support.

I found it necessary to go to the ER at Louis Smith Memorial Hospital Friday, March 1st, at 4:30 a.m. I would like to commend Miranda, Denise, Cindy, Charlotte and PA Buck, as well as the xray tech whose name I failed to get for their professional care and concern. They were the greatest. Thank you all.

I would like to commend the Times.  I don’t always agree with you but I commend your coverage. Thank you.

To the man busing tables at Smokin' Pig on Thursday night: You were really hustling! We were in the restaurant for a long time waiting for our order, and we couldn't help but notice your hard work. You should be proud.

Thanks to my VDT carrier Sharon Carter for your years of exemplary service. She has been my carrier for many years and I  have never had any problems.

Kudos to the Lanier County Board of Education superintendent, Keith Humphrey. You are always on top of things and make sure our schools are run smoothly. I am happy that my children attend these schools and that their safety is your number one concern. Thanks for always being there.

Great big raves to the Temple Israel for their awesome fundraiser. I look forward to the sandwich sale every year, and adding the online option to buy tickets has made it that much more fantastic. I just wish they were for sale everyday. We need a deli!

Thanks to SGMC Heart Center for the care they gave me last week. They are angels in my book. They are a 10, not just a five. My prayers will be with you and all of those you care for. May God be with you.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    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!
