Raves for Wednesday, August 28, 2013

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

It is always a pleasure to go inside at the Wendy's location on Ashley Street. The ladies there are the kindest, most pleasant workers. They always make me feel good with their kindness to all customers. Keep up the good work ladies.

Thank you, Ms. Tammie at Winn-Dixie in Lake Park for your assistance when I shop.

Rave to my Times carrier. I live in Berrien County and with all the rain we had, I still get my paper. I live on a dirt road and I praise my carrier for that. This is the first carrier I have had that has been this great. Thank you  whoever you are.

Thank you to the American patriots on Exit 18 on Saturdays with their signs and flags. We appreciate your standing for us when we can't.

I want to give a huge thank you to the officers that stopped and helped me change my tire. The first officer had to go on a call and Officer Woods is the one who helped me and my kids. Thank you so much Officer Woods! Shame to all you grown men who didn’t stop and help a woman and her two kids!

The lady working the KFC drive-thru on St. Augustine never fails to brighten my day. She always has the friendliest personality and smile on her face. Great job!

Two thumbs up to the teachers at Westside Elementary that keep the morning drop off line moving!

If every business operated like Chick-fil-A and Publix, they would succeed.

Thank you to Erin Gaskins at Valdosta High School. She was such a blessing to my daughter who started school there this week.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    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!
