Rant & Rave for Monday, Nov. 4, 2013

-- — I will not be voting for current politicians in office that have sworn to uphold the law and then blatantly violate it. It is against the law to put signs in the right-of-way. I will not be voting for any current politicians that are currently breaking the law, especially in Lake Park. They should have their signs picked up by maintenance crews and fined.

Now that we have the Gornto Road extension finished, it is time to add some left turn signals to the traffic lights where Woodrow Wilson crosses Ashley Street. I just noticed the new traffic cams at Gornto and Oak. Do they work any better than the others in town that don't work at all?

Hey, you folks who do not want to pay more money in taxes with SPLOST you better get out and vote now. The politicians have voted already so you best vote now or it is over.

Regarding the customer kept waiting while the staff were on the phone, I have seen the reverse side of the situation — a sign in a store saying, “We realize how important your call is to you, so we wouldn’t dream of interrupting it by serving you.”

Lowndes County Board of Education needs to update their fundraising policy to limit fundraisers per calendar year. I am sick of Westside PTO’s weekly fundraising solicitations as if this is an indigent school. Asking for items that should be purchased with PTO funds has to stop!

To the people against selling the stadium to VSU, you're the reason Valdosta is still lost in the 1920s mentality. You have absolutely no common sense at all. That is not the original Wildcat stadium and you know it.

Yes, it would be great to have a Fresh Market, Earth Fare or New Leaf Market in Valdosta and wouldn’t it be nice to have a Sweet Tomatoes Restaurant also?

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.

School starts again in about two weeks. What do you think?

It's still summer. School starts too soon.
Seems like the right time to return.
Abolish summer recess. Make school year-round.
