Raves for Wednesday, June 5, 2013

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

Kudos to The Valdosta Daily Times for hiring Logan who works at the front desk. It was a pleasure to watch her handle two of us customers inside with back to back phone calls by herself in a delightful and uplifting way. Good job.

Two thumbs up to Hungry Howie’s on Ashley Street. It is the first time I had one of their pizzas and it was awesome. The staff could not have been nicer. I don’t see why they don’t do more business. It was great!

Thank you to the Waffle House on North Valdosta Road for their great service. They always treat our daughter like a princess! I think they have the best customer service in town!

To the cancer patient who was thanking the man for the movie screening: You really put things in perspective for me, and hopefully to others. Praying for you and your family.

Big raves for Bernette at  Arby's on St. Augustine Road! What a great attitude! Keep smiling, you do great work.

I want to praise the service of William Tompkins at the Norman Drive AT&T store. He went out of his way to provide outstanding service in a very difficult situation. He is a great problem solver, great employee, and super nice guy!

Rave to Jeffery Amos and his team for the great job working with the  young men and women with the Ombudsman program.

The city employees are doing  a great job in cleaning up the sewage problem in North Valdosta. I commend them for a nice clean up job.

Rave to my mother who graduated from nursing school in Valdosta 100 years ago in May of 1913.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    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!
