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.

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.
