Rant & Raves for Friday, May 3, 2013

VALDOSTA — I thought that all schools had dress codes that the teachers and substitutes had to follow? When I walk into the school it looks like they are headed to the pool instead of the classroom. Tank tops and skimpy skirts are not allowed. Come on, administration, make them follow the rules. Thank you, to the teachers and staff that do adhere to the dress code.

As I drive around Valdosta and look at the tall grass/weeds and the cars parked in the front yards, I wonder where the city marshals are at to enforce the codes? If they were out driving around and doing the job that "code enforcement" does, then we wouldn't  have these problems.

Lanier County residents need to start attending school board meetings and start putting some pressure on the board members. The superintendent has a work relationship with his wife who is his assistant superintendent. It’s funny how the nepotism policy disappeared prior to this move happening.

If you're going to have a dress code at a prom, then utilize it. If you're not going to enforce a dress code, then don't bother having one. Some of the photos I saw of the teenage girls was more like a Victoria's Secret show than a high school prom. I realize that teenagers like to push the boundaries that adults set, but some of those girls were more like shoving those boundaries aside and stepping all over them.

To the person who smashed the window out of my truck on N. Valdosta Road Tuesday afternoon, stealing my notebook and camera: Besides costing me over $600 in damages and stolen property, that notebook contained all of my school work, and that camera contained sentimental pictures that I can never get back. You'll get yours one day!

    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.
