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!

    How in the world could any pastor allow men to play on their church softball teams at Freedom Park and almost the whole team doesn’t go to church there or anywhere? Isn’t that against the rules?

    Thank you, Mayor Gayle, for hitting the nail on the head about lack of funding to repair the Wastewater Treatment Plant. When citizens vote against raising revenue, then the only alternative is to increase water/sewer rates. Mayor Gayle, we appreciate that you care for our city’s elderly and those on fixed incomes who can’t afford a doubling or tripling of their water/sewer bills. SPLOST is funded by out-of-town sales tax, and protects the most financially vulnerable of our citizens.

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.
