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.

    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!

    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.
