Raves for Wednesday, September 25, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor’s Note: In 2013, Wednesdays will be  rave-only days. Thank you to our readers for your support.

Thank you to participants, contributors and volunteers for the second Annual "The Clock is Ticking" 7-mile swim.

Long Pond this past weekend. Phenomenal stories of swimmers endurance, community spirit and excellent food. From the two lunch meals, Saturday night banquet and a patriotic send-off for the swimmers on Sunday morning, it was a spectacular weekend. Don't miss TCT 2014.

Thank you, Wiregrass, for a great family day at Wild Adventures for your  50th year anniversary. The food was wonderful and plentiful. It was

nice to go to Wild Adventures to see and ride on the new rides which were at the park. The weather also cooperated. It was a great experience.

The right-of-way on Hwy. 376 (Clyattville/Lake Park Road) looks the best that it has looked in a long time.

A big thank you to the  couple who paid for our dinner Sunday evening at Sonny’s. Good people are still around.

Hats off to Jonathan who works at Auto Zone on Perimeter Road. He is proof that knowledgeable and competent

customer service will increase the bottom line.

Thank you to the department that is responsible for cutting and maintaining the grass along that highway. You did a fine job.

I adopted a dauchsund mix from BARC Humane Society at PetSmart last weekend. I just wanted to say thank you to that organization for saving animals and his foster Karen for taking such good care of him. PetSmart also deserves a thumbs up for hosting these adoption events! Good job all around!

Thank you to Macadoos for displaying the large U.S. flag. It is awesome!

The young man working at Exotic Fish on Northside is so very nice and polite. He is courteous and friendly and helps customers so very much. Businesses need more employees like him.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    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.
