Rant & Raves for Wednesday, January 16, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor’s Note: Every Wednesday is an “all rave” day in The Valdosta Daily Times. If you have a rave you’d like to share, please call (229) 244-3400, ext. 418 or submit online at

Here's a great rave! Praise God for all blessings, large or small. Don't take anything for granted as most do.

Thanks so much for the all raves on Wednesdays! It is refreshing and uplifting to see and hear of all the "good" that is happening in the Valdosta area. We appreciate all the positive, good vibrations!

A Rave to the city of Hahira for putting on nice community events such as the Honey Bee Festival. Maybe the city could revive the Great Hahira Pick-In.

If you like real Mexican food then I strongly suggest El Cazador on Ashley. The corn tortilla chips are fresh and hot, the sauce refreshing, the main dishes are "homemade.” The chili rellenos are the best I have ever tasted. Save room for the flan. El Cazador is Five Stars.

A rave to the lady driving the truck who stopped to give groceries to the homeless lady sitting outside of the AT&T store on Norman Drive. It brought me to tears!

Thanks to Redland Baptist Church and all the people in the community for helping us when our 129-year-old church burned on Christmas Day. Thanks for all your help and prayers.

I fell at my apartment and the young postal lady rushed to my side and stayed with me. Thank you!

Folks, if you are thinking of purchasing any type of office supplies, you might want to consider buying them at Office Depot, located at the mall, here in Valdosta. My husband and I recently bought an office chair there, and found the entire staff to be very friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Eric who was especially patient with my husband on the phone.

    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!
