Rant & Rave for Friday, Jan. 25, 2013

The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — 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.

Many raves to Search and Rescue who will now be featured worldwide by National Geographic. We are very proud of the men and women who risk their lives. Many raves!

Why isn’t the Berrien County superintendent job advertised? It has been open for months, yet it is not on Teach Georgia or the Berrien Schools job announcement page. It seems as if they have advertised as little as possible, to not draw attention to the job opening. Maybe to slide someone into that position who isn’t really qualified for it!

Rant to the Lowndes County Utility Department for finally setting up online payments for water bills but then tacking on a $2 service fee to use it ... cash my check, postage is still cheaper.
