Rant & Rave for Friday, Jan. 25, 2013

-- — Drivers! When turning left into the mall parking lot from Gornto Road, remember that those making a right-hand turn into the mall parking lot do not  have a yield sign. They do not have to stop, and if you hit them, it will be your fault. Just because it’s two lanes doesn’t mean you can turn into the left lane. A lot of us who are turning right, are then moving directly into the left lane to turn into Publix parking lot. Pay attention.

A big rave to Tommy at SGMC. Thank you so much. I was freezing as I waited for my sister to get a cat-scan. You came and asked if I was cold and came back with someone bringing both her (the patient) and me a warm blanket. It really meant a lot. It’s the little people that make a big difference. Thanks again!

Rave to the Tucker family in Clyattville. For the last 20 years, they have given to a community the third Saturday in December. They usually feed about 300-400 people. It is a nice way to bring the community together. Thank you.

Rave to Calvin who works in the shoe department at Belk’s. He always has a smile on his face no matter how busy the store is and he always goes out of his way to help you.

A huge rave to everyone who volunteers at the Partnership for Health Clinic. If it were not for caring people like you all, I would not have any health care at all. Thank you to everyone there! You are appreciated.

Love, love, love the Wednesday Raves! I wish this was every day! I firmly believe that if more good news was reported, we would see more positivity in our daily lives, instead of the doom and gloom that comes from the front page or headline news.

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
