Rant and Raves for Wednesday, October 3, 2012

VALDOSTA — School fund raisers do not pay for luncheons or T-shirts. Teachers have to buy all those T-shirts themselves. And the luncheons are covered by cheer fund money that is taken up from each faculty and staff member. Fund raisers cover paper, glue, ink cartridges, labels, books and other needed but unfunded materials. Quit complaining unless you know facts.

Motorcycles should not be passing traffic by going between cars that are side-by-side. That is dangerous.

The only solution to losing a football game is to get better and come back next year.

What, no concession stands open on the first day of Parks & Rec baseball?  At least bring the “peanut lady” back!

I pay county taxes in Cook County to have two ambulances protect my county. Why is it the ambulances we pay for can leave our county uncovered to do transports from other counties? Maybe it’s time to get our own EMS back that was here for the taxpayers. Go back to Macon MGA!

Rave to Tomlinson Auto Shop.  They were polite, nice and quick. Thank you for taking care of me and my car in a short time and very reasonable price. Thank you again.

We had to go to SGMC emergency room. We were treated in a very professional manner from start to finish. The highlight was meeting Dr. Matt Shannon. He is so caring. A follow up with Dr. David Sule was also perfect. We need more of these in Valdosta.

A huge rave to Judge Ellerbee for all he has done to make a difference in the lives of the children in Lowndes County.

We don’t really have poverty in the U.S. Even our poor people have cell phones. Is this a great country, or what?

Nomophobia is the fear of not having a mobile phone. NoBamaphobia is the fear of not having the government pay for it.

    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!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.
