Rant & Rave for Friday, May 24, 2013

VALDOSTA — How long is it going to take AT&T telephone and/or Mediacom cable to do something about the vines and bushes  growing over the cable lines at Mt. Zion Church  Road  and Academy Acres. The lines are  pulled down where a 6 foot person can touch them. We won’t have any cable service or phone service if something is not done about this pretty soon.

A pastor does not own a church. It is a job. Just like his wife has a job, he has a job. They don’t own a church.

Whoever took the casserole dish with a lid, and the clear dish with a blue top from J.E. Fender’s home, will you please return it, no questions asked. It goes to a set and I would appreciate it to have it back.

To the person complaining about the Hawaii band trip. It’s optional. I am a single parent of three. This is the only chance my child would be able to go. The band offers chances to "earn" the money plus and excessive time to make payments. If you can’t afford it then your child doesn’t have to go. But allow the child to earn as much money as they can to relieve some of the burden from you.

It is time the city council gets another cable company to enter. Mediacom raises its prices monthly and when asked they said they had an audit and were not charging enough taxes. Then we were told after all it is entertainment. So be it but competition is needed!

Why are the Cook County bus drivers taking the buses home for the summer? This should be the time that they are serviced and all of the maintenance done. I have met more than one bus with either a headlight out or one of the caution or red lights, that are supposed to flash, out. The bus is not a personal vehicle for you to go grocery shopping on Saturday or Sunday. I know how fickle bus drivers are. I admire you for the job you do and I surely wouldn't want to do your job, but don't abuse the system.

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.

It's still summer. School starts too soon.
Seems like the right time to return.
Abolish summer recess. Make school year-round.
