Rant & Rave for Friday, Oct. 12, 2012

The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — Really, luck or skill is what you think it came down to in the football game. Last year it was an offside kick and this year a field goal. Who really cares how the team scored? You have poor sportsmanship. There are more important things in life than luck or skill at a football game! Get a life. Both teams always play their best.

I have found absolutely nothing wrong with the smart meters.


With all the pros/cons on public and private schools, I have experienced both with my child. I removed him from public school so he would have better influences in private school. Little did I know 75 percent of the kids in the private high school where he went to were troubled teens. They were not the "goody two shoe rich kids." They were normal every day "public" school kids in a different environment.

Clay Dorminy at Piggly Wiggly in Adel is the best! He ordered and stocked an item for my mother that even WalMart doesn't carry! Thanks!

Our "smart meter" has been in use for a while now. We have no problems.

Screaming kids at the doctors’ offices are the result of not being able to discipline your children in public because people call the law. Children are running all over parents nowadays. You wouldn't have any of this non-sense 20 years ago.

It is against GHSA rules for a band to play during live play. LHS gets called because they are breaking a rule. The coach tells them to do this. Great sportsmanship, Coach!

I would vote for a new library to replace the antiquated old one. I would vote against a new city auditorium: we already have a relatively new civic center. Why not let each project stand alone in a SPLOST vote for only one year, then move on to the next project for one year? Lumping all the projects together results in my "no" vote.

Bands are supposed to play during live-ball situations, and Lowndes always goes over the line. It's just not good sportsmanship.

If you truly feel unsafe where you vote, vote early on Oak Street.

A ranter fussed because they feel they are judged by how well they maintain their neighborhood. That's always going to be true. Google "broken window theory.”

I would like to know more about the teachers taking bus tours to view students’ homes. Please tell me this does not really happen! I have nothing to hide but I do think it is a total waste of money.
