Raves for Wednesday, June 26, 2013

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

Professor Charles C. Hall, former principal of Magnolia Elementary, Pinevale High and Southeast Elementary School. Your honesty, dedication, love, and support for your students will never be forgotten.

At Save A Lot on Wednesday, I left my purse in a grocery cart outside of the store. A young lady with a baby came along and used that same cart and carried it inside of the store and gave it to a cashier who gave it to the the manager. The manager returned my purse.  Thank God for honest people and all who were involved.

Rave for Daniel, produce  guy at Winn Dixie on Madison Highway. He was very helpful and  provided excellent service. If you need produce, go see Daniel.

May your troubles be less, your blessings be more. Nothing but happiness come through your door. Be more concerned with what God thinks about you, than what people think about you.

There are not enough thank yous for our service men and women. They are very brave and our heroes. If not for them, our country would not be. Thank you all and God keep you safe and well.

A very big thank you to the brave volunteers from our Lowndes County Fire Department who left their Memorial Day activities with their loved ones to respond to an apartment fire in Lake Park. Your swift action and bravery saved the building and kept three other families from losing their homes and personal belongings. Again thank you for your bravery and quick response.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if Oprah would put Paula Deen's program on OWN! What a statement that would make. I don't live in my past anymore.

There is already a low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Lake Park run by Dr. Alba Sosa. Her staff is also pleasant and informative to the clients. Check them out!

    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.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.
