Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012

-- — I want to thank the Outback Riders for another wonderful Toy Run. There will be a lot of happy children in our area that wouldn’t normally have a present under their tree. Keep up the excellent job!!

Thanks to the man who paid for my lunch Friday at Cracker Barrel. I was feeling down in the dumps and he made me feel a lot better. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you, thank you!

I just wanted to give a great big Thank You to Moulton Branch Elementary. The faculty and staff love our children as much as we do. They work hard every day to make sure our kids are safe and getting the best education possible. ... Thank You!

A big thank you to the angel who gave the $800 to purchase the wheelchair for Kendall White. I do not know Mrs. White but so touched by the blessings. Also thank you for all that offered .

I want to thank the young man at Hambrick’s Christmas Tree Farm that helped my husband and I last Saturday. I’m sorry I don’t know his name but he was very friendly and helpful and was a pleasure to deal with.

My family would like to say a big thank you to Mark and his staff at Sunset Hill Cemetery. They were so good to us during a very difficult time in our life.

Request from the chancel choir to the congregation: smile!

Thank you to the young lady on a bicycle  who stopped and helped a man in a wheel chair on  Valley Street who was stuck in a hole. This is what I consider to be a Christian.

Thank you to the Scoop on Northside Drive. Valdosta needs more establishments like them. They went out of their way to help me on Thursday morning and I thank them. Thank you to the Scoop.

    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.
