Rant & Raves for Wednesday, February 27, 2013

VALDOSTA — A huge rave to our law enforcement officers in the very successful road block operation this past weekend. With helicopters in the sky, and almost 200 vehicles on the ground, you took it to the criminal element, making our streets and communities a safer place to live.

I think Martin Roesch is an excellent choice for City Schools Superintendent. I have known Martin for 30 years and don’t  think the Board of Education could have made a better choice.

Kudos to the two secretaries at Lowndes Middle School. When I come and check my children out of school even during their busiest time of day, they are both very nice and helpful and have a smile on their faces.

Rave to Stephanie at Advanced Disposal. They did not pick up my recycling and she had them right back out here the next  day.  Please give them a chance. They have been excellent on the phone and they have to just work out the kinks. They are trying to do their best.

I adopted a Chihuahua on Jan. 11 from the Animal Shelter and her name was Twitchy. Whoever gave her up must of had to for some reason. She is loved and being taken care of. Thank you for the gift.

Thank you to the VPD officer who gave a citation to the people begging for money at the AT&T/Target intersection. My sympathy goes out to anyone who falls on hard times; but Valdosta has so many resources to help you put clothes on your back, food in your mouth, and a roof over your head. Thank you, officer, for doing your job and what is best for our community!

Thank you PetSmart for supporting both the Lowndes County Animal Shelter's and the Humane Society's B.A.R.C., in their efforts to find homes for many loving and deserving animals. This is such a great cause, and kudos to you for reaching out to our community to help families find their perfect pet, and therefore helping animals find families who will love and care for them. Anyone who has ever "saved" an animal can vouch for the enormous love they bring.

Kudos to Korea Garden, a local family-owned and operated restaurant, a real find. Best egg rolls, glazed chicken, and tempura. It's delicious!

Huge rave to Kahau at Moody Lanes! She works long hours but always makes customers visits enjoyable. My family and I know it’s going to be a good time bowling when she’s working. We need more people with work ethics like her!

    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!

    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!”
