Rant & Rave for Monday, Oct. 15, 2012

-- — I wish Valdosta and Lowndes would call a truce and stop the childish games about the ticket allotments for the Winnersville Classic game. Valdosta's visitors side should all go to Lowndes, as that side is much smaller than their home side. Lowndes should allot the same amount of tickets that Valdosta has on their visitor side, leaving a few more for Lowndes fans on the visitor side since their stadium is larger on the visitor side.  

Oh, ranter — I just love how "gangs and drugs" go hand-in-hand with "liberalism" in our public schools. I could argue that narrow-mindedness and self-righteousness go hand-in-hand with conservatism.

What's going on, Lowndes County Schools? My child loses his gifted teacher down in Lake Park last year. And now this year, at Lowndes Middle, you move the gifted teacher into another position? My child needs a good education and stability, too.

Smokers, please stop throwing your cigarette butts out onto the road. If you don't want them in your car, what makes you think people want them on the street or in the grass? To the female driver of the grey Lexus on North Valdosta Road: Shame on you for throwing out your butts.

Where is the "Professionalism" of the Lowndes County Public Works Department? I can’t believe the Recycling Lot attendants had to read in the paper today they may not have a job come the first of the year. Isn't it their duty to inform their employees of the possible loss of their jobs? Some may need to start looking for other employment.

City construction workers on River Street: Thank you so much for starting work at 10 p.m.! Sleep is overrated, and nothing is more soothing than the sound of drills and grinding metal!

    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.

    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!
