Raves for Wednesday, March 6, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor's Note: Every Wednesday in 2013, the Times is only publishing raves.

Rave to the heart surgery center at SGMC. I had heart surgery last week and the service there was excellent. They said they strive for a 5. I give them a 6. Thank you so much, SGMC!

Raves to the Valdosta  Board of Education for hiring  Marty Roesch for new superintendent. That was a stroke of genius.

A big thank you to the gentleman who led me in his truck to Harrington Funeral Home on Friday. I was not sure where it was and he helped me find it to attend the wake of a family member of a dear friend of mine. Thank you for that.

A big rave to our PJ’s at Moody and the National Geographic series that comes on Monday nights at 10 p.m. It makes you very humble. We are very proud of them.

Rave to the nice gentleman who helped me last Thursday on the 84 exit. My car stalled and he took the time to make sure I got safely out of the way of traffic. So glad to know that we still have caring people out there!

My aunt is here from Alabama and had a low tire light on and went to Ray Norton Tire and Auto. While she was there, Jim helped her. He reset her low tire light for her and cleaned her windshield.  Now that is what I call customer service.

Jeff who works for Kinsey Heating and Air is very professional and does great work. Thank you, Kinsey, for hiring such a sweet wonderful  guy as Jeff.

A big thank you to Debra at South Georgia Regional Library who went beyond her duty to help me find information on Braille for my grandson at school. Thank you very much.

    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.
