Rant & Rave for Monday, Sept. 23, 2013

-- — To inform citizens, are you aware of the five-year plan put into effect Aug. 1, 2012? Your water and sewer bill will increase each year. How is all the extra money going to be spent, city leaders? It seems it should be to finance a new water plant. Think of all the homes, apartments and businesses paying this increase.

If you don't want Valdosta Police stopping Lowndes High students, maybe you should tell the students not to speed in their own school zone.

Please don't follow the advice of the misinformed person suggesting walkers walk with traffic and bikers ride against. Not only is this unsafe it is also against the law. Bikers follow the same rules as vehicles, and pedestrians  are instructed to walk/run against traffic when no sidewalk is available.

Did you know that Moody Field Library will be closing by the end of this month? What else are they planning on removing from our military personnel and their families? Their bases are their homes and their communities. We need to nurture our military families. They give their all and we need to praise them not punish them.

I agree that SPLOST is the best way to raise money for projects. However, as far as the things that seem most important to the people, such as infrastructure and waste management, we still have the same people in charge that mismanaged and abused the one that is in effect now. Are we to believe that they can be trusted now.

To the informed citizen regarding the waste water treatment plant: This has been an ongoing problem for years. What happened with the past SPLOST money that could have been spent on that. What makes you think they will do the right thing? The Mayor needs to wake up. Stop spending SPLOST money on other things.

    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.
