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!

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    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!
