Rants & Raves for Friday, August 23, 2013

VALDOSTA — There should be a law against pets of any kind that are caged. How would you like to live your life that way? They need to be free and with their own kind.

Why do we not have any cable television competition in Valdosta? My daughter has Xfinity by Comcast in Atlanta and it is so much better than Mediacom! I don't want satellite service, so please, Valdosta — get us some competition here!

Vote for SPLOST, not me. I voted for SPLOST 20 years ago when the money was supposed to be used to pave the roads in Lowndes County and mine hasn’t been paved yet.

To the people in our community who order pizza for delivery and do not tip, consider how you would feel if you did not get paid when you go to work. Someone went out of their way for your convenience, so don’t inconvenience them.

Please get your story straight. The scoreboard for Lowndes High School football was purchased by the Booster Club and the Band Booster Club and private funds. No school monies was used to purchase that scoreboard.

We need to change the name of Berrien County to Broke County. It is embarrassing to even live in this county due to the stupid things our leaders do. Yes, cut officers’ phones off and put them and us in danger and harass businesses about grease traps. Maybe us citizens need new changes in our city and county management areas.

For years now, we have all been paying a storm water fee. Mine is $1.25 a month, for what? Last storm, I was stopped at a red light and watched water pouring out of a manhole cover in the street. I could barely drive down the street because the water was  covering half the street. So, what is this storm fee I'm paying each month being spent on?

    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.

    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.
