Raves for Wednesday, April 24, 2013

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

A “Thank You” to Mr. John Whitehead, the deputy city manager for operations, and his professional staff for providing a replacement trash bin for our damaged trash bin on White Oak Drive.

South Georgia Eye partners has got a great medical staff. They’re caring courteous and know their stuff. I wore glasses for 40 years and had cataracts. Now I don’t need glasses and the cataracts are gone.

Mayor John Gayle is the best mayor we’ve had in a long time. His letter in The Times shows it. He can be trusted to do the right and Christian thing. Thank you, Valdosta voters, for electing him! He will get things done that are important.

I want to rave about Heather Colson Dentistry! My 5-year-old had to get a cavity filled and her and her team did a wonderful job! She felt no pain and was not scared at all! Thanks!

A big shout out to Will Robinson and his staff at the Valdosta Food Bank for their gracious gifts and support at the Lowndes Adopted/Foster Support Group and well  done to the person at The Valdosta Daily Times for the article. Thank you so much!

I parked my car in front of Penney’s and went into the mall to do a few things. When I came out, I saw a lady and the mall cop standing in front of my car. When I asked what is wrong, and the lady saw a truck back into my car and leave. She got the license number, color of the truck and left a note on my car and took a note into Penney’s for them to give to me. I don’t know who she was but thank you very, very much!

    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.
