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.

    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.
