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.

    Thank you, Mayor Gayle, for hitting the nail on the head about lack of funding to repair the Wastewater Treatment Plant. When citizens vote against raising revenue, then the only alternative is to increase water/sewer rates. Mayor Gayle, we appreciate that you care for our city’s elderly and those on fixed incomes who can’t afford a doubling or tripling of their water/sewer bills. SPLOST is funded by out-of-town sales tax, and protects the most financially vulnerable of our citizens.

    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.
