Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2013

-- — Thanks to the Valdosta Daily Times carrier,in the Old Wood Valley subdivison, for taking time to tie-up the newspapers to keep them dry in this stormy weather.

The Withlacoochee Waste Water Plant article mentions property taxes may need to go up to cover repairs. If you are a property owner in Lowndes and voted 'no' on SPLOST, you may have voted yourself, and I, a pay cut. What happened to, Vote 'No' on SPLOST and give yourself a 'Raise'?

If LCSO wanted to prevent drunk driving, they would place an officer in the parking lot of the bars to administer breathalizers before anyone got behind the wheel. It wouldn’t cost any more than placing the same officer a mile down the road. But I guess that wouldn’t generate any income for the county, probation offices, DUI schools or lawyers.

Parents should think twice about some of the names they use for their children. It is harder to learn to write them and they will have to repeat the name over to others for the rest of their life.

A big rave to Lidia at Mama June's! She had the best customer service I've had at any resteraunt in Valdosta! I'm definitely going back just to sit in her section!

To the group that is trying to shut Moody AFB down, do you realize that most of you rich folks would be doomed? Ninety percent of Lowndes County would just be idle. Go ahead though, guess that is what you want. We all can relocate. Look at the rental apartments, house just sitting!

To the ranter who complained about the reckless driving of the Georgia State patrolman, I also have seen both state troopers and Lowndes County deputies driving aggressively without lights or sirens on. If they aggressively "hunt" for dangerous drivers, then they should be held accountable for their actions, too.

    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!

    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.
