Raves for Wednesday, October 23, 2013

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

I would like to give a big rave to Regina B. at Olive Garden. The last two times we have been to the restaurant, Regina was our waitress and she couldn’t have made the experience any more enjoyable. Her friendliness and impeccable customer service is above par! We look forward to coming back and seeing her again.

We had a wonderful time at the fall festival at Clyattville Elementary School. It was well organized and my kids had a lot of fun. Looking forward for next year.

I want to give a pat on the back to Taylor at Surgical Associates! She has an awesome personality, and really wants what is best for the patients there! Good medical care is hard to come by these days and I want to thank her for putting time into each and every patient. Keep up the good work, Taylor!

Special thanks to the couple who paid for our veteran’s dinner Saturday night at Texas Roadhouse. It was a special moment for our family as they were from out of town and made me proud to say that I’m from Valdosta! Thank you for your gift; we will pay it forward!

Raves for Cathy at Lowe’s appliance center. She is  so helpful in locating merchandise even in other Lowe’s stores for her customers. Thank you, Cathy!

Ms. Phyllis Childree’s LHS Off-Broadway student production of the “Marvelous Wonderettes” was delightful entertainment. Thank you so much to the students for this production.

A big thank you to Mama June’s restaurant and their staff for being such a gracious host for my husband’s 80th birthday party. The waitresses were very helpful and all of our guests had a wonderful time. Thank you.

    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.
