Raves for Wednesday, September 11, 2013

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

I left my checkbook in a buggy at Home Depot on Monday and I would like to thank the person who turned it in. There are still honest people out there.

I want to give the biggest thank you to the VSU football players. My son truly enjoyed the meet the players event. Each player had the excitement that the children had on their faces. The players were "so into the game" it made my heart smile. I saw some kids that acted out and would not listen and follow directions and these young men handled it very well. Thank you to the players!

Thank you, Mediacom, for being a part of Cable In the Classroom!

Thanks to Lowndes County for mowing and weed eating the strip on Jodeco Road, off Knights Academy. Very good job.

Thanks Deputy Wheeler for helping us daily to get our buses out of Moulton Branch in a very safe and timely manner. Keep up the good work.

To the man that found my phone at the hospital on Friday. You went out of your way to track me down and return my phone. Again thank you very much.

Huge rave to the Chick-Fil-A locations here in Valdosta. I go to both quite often and the employees and management are amazing and have great attitudes.

A rave to the Viking Runners Club Coaches! Thank you so much for all you do with those young runners. These coaches run with the kids, help them with their homework and coach them.

Huge rave to the teachers and the prime time staff at PGES. We recently moved to that school district and my children were worried they would not like the school or after-school program. Both of them love their teachers and the entire prime time staff! It eases my mind more than you will ever know knowing that they really enjoy going to school and are thriving at that school.  

Thomas Collision repaired body damage to my car recently. The work was done in the time frame estimated. I was worried about the white clear coat paint matching, it matched exactly. Kudos to all Thomas employees.

After some recent health problems, I was admitted to SGMC. My nurse Traci was fantastic and very helpful. My lab tech, Zach, was great and pain free. Everytime he came in he brightened my day.

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
