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 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!

    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.
