Rant & Rave for Friday, Oct. 4, 2013

-- — I play football for LHS and will always be a Viking win or lose! But can we really only run two plays? The defense knows it's coming up the middle either left or right. Maybe it's time for a new play book.

To people walking dogs on Park Lane, Thomwall, and Park Ave. neighborhood area, please stop letting your dogs poop freely in everyone's yard. Be respectful and use a poop bag to clean up or let your dog poop in your own yard. Then you can dodge the stinky piles. Please be a responsible pet owner!

You must not be a homeowner. If I decide to put my house on the market, and across the street is a yard full of cars, trucks, and beer pong paraphenalia, how likely is it that I'm going to get a decent price for my house? That makes it my business.

Brooks County parents: did you know that most of the students do not have books/workbooks, teachers are not given extra copy paper to compensate for no books, and now teachers have to use a new lesson plan format that will be 20-25 pages per week? But, approximately five new jobs were created at the county office this year! This is not right!

I think before we quit paying our servicemen and women, we need to quit paying both houses of Congress first. Every day of the delay equals one month of their salary and benefits!

It's about time SGMC admit they have a problem. Too bad they didn't include that the employees are taking all the hits and administration is just cruising along.

The Lake Park Christmas parade should be held in Lake Park not at the outlet mall.

I looked at the SPLOST list on the Engineering page. I think I will vote Yes. Didn't realize how many projects my "penny" covered.

    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.
