Rant & Raves for Wednesday, February 27, 2013

The Valdosta Daily Times

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!
