Raves for Wednesday, April 17, 2013

VALDOSTA — I would like to submit a rave for Dr. Ron Reagin and his office staff. Everyone always greets me by name, the service is prompt, and everyone is very kind there. Great work!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to the considerate and kind Lowndes County Sheriff’s deputy who paid to put $10 of gas in my car when I did not have my wallet at the gas station this afternoon. I am so thankful and will pass on the kindness!

Way to go, Open Bible Warriors! You defeated a great ball club, the Appling Eagle team, 4-1.

Tuesday night the Valdosta Police department responded to our office for a possible break-in in progress. I just want to praise the officers who responded. They arrived quickly and did a fantastic, professional job of checking to make sure everything was secure.

Attending the Spring into Art reception was a delightful way to spend an evening. The event was well organized, everyone was congenial, the food was delicious and the artwork was outstanding. My sincere gratitude goes out to everyone who had a role in bringing the show and reception so beautifully.

Thanks to the lady that turned in my father's diploma to Echols County Library.

A big thank you to Frock Star Vintage in the Old Southern building on Ashley Street for helping me find a costume for my child who was in a play. It’s a  great shop and I would like to thank him for his help.

Rave to Advanced Disposal from a satisfied customer in Stone Creek. Every Monday, whatever I have placed by the curb has been picked up by the time I return home from work.

I want to give a huge rave to Valdosta Lowndes Parks and Recreation. My child has been playing sports there for about five years and this past year it seems that the program has improved and we are enjoying it more than ever. Thank you!

Many thanks to the honest person who turned in my wallet at Winn Dixie at Five Points. I was frantic when I realized I  lost it but when I went back  my wallet  was turned in with all of the contents. Thank  you for turning it in.

Raves to Colyer’s Jewelry on Ashley for helping a stranger in town get his glasses fixed. These are good, honest people.

    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.

    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.
