Rant & Rave for Friday, April 5, 2013

-- — When is the City of Valdosta going to start spraying for mosquitoes? The area around McKey Park and neighborhoods by the creek are over run with the pests. Please help us.

To the person whose coupon binder was stolen at Publix — please go by the library on Woodrow Wilson Drive (Reference Desk) and ask to go through the coupons we have on hand. Everyone is welcome to take what they need. Hope your binder is returned to you ASAP and that wonderful things will happen for you and yours.

A rant to the two city ticket writers that hound the VSU art students: Guess you think running projects in for two seconds is illegal. Another thing that really bugs me is that my tuition goes to you two ladies sitting in the Interior Design gallery because it’s cold outside.

To the person defending the yellow church van: If your goal is to feed hungry children, you will listen to the person's complaint and make adjustments so that every child is fed. Whether their complaint is legitimate or not, your true self is showing.

To the person who still wants to rant about the issue at Valwood, please take it up with Valwood, enough already!

Are First Lady or University Ambassador titles to be used? Check out the Faculty Processional Packet sent out today from the chairperson of the Presidential Inauguration Investiture Ceremony and Reception subcommittee. Guess what, one and the same person.

Valwood does not offer scholarships. They offer financial aid to families who apply to the several options listed on the website — even student athletes.

A rave for Cindy at Winn-Dixie on North Ashley  in the Floral Department! She took the time to answer my questions, had a lot of ideas, assisted and made a beautiful fruit basket in no time at all. Highly recommend her!

    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.
