Raves for Wednesday, July 17, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor’s Note: In 2013, Wednesdays will be  rave-only days. Thank you to our readers for your support.

Academy Sports has very, very good customer service.

Rave to the law enforcement of Cook and Lowndes counties. Keep those “blue light specials” on the interstate. Bring in more money from other counties/states. I’m also happy to see law enforcement on the state/county roads.

A belated thank you to Dr. Fredericks, Sara, and the crew at Archbold Hospital in Thomasville. I had back surgery there   about six weeks ago      and everyone was so friendly. The care I received was first class. I will definitely go there again if needed.

A big Rave to Bill Love who took time out of his busy schedule to help the Valdosta High School softball team improve the softball field.

Congrats to the Valdosta State Prison Annex medical staff for the outstanding dedication and a job well worth the notice!

I want to send a shout out to the employees at Chick-fil-A, Lake Park. I’m there every morning for my refill of Coke Zero and you are always so friendly. To Jacquelyn and all the gang: Great job!

Loved the idea of a new skating rink, here in Valdosta. Can’t believe this town does not have one. What a great place for family time and for young people to enjoy themselves.

Thank you to the person that placed the rant about the AT&T scam. They had just called me the day prior and I was hopefully able to stop a fraud to my account. Thank you! So glad I read the paper daily.


Thank you so much All Star Garage Door Company. You did a fantastic job on my garage door and I appreciate it!

Thank you so much to Bernard Plumbing and Repair Service for doing such a good job.

    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.

    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!
