Rants & Raves for Friday, May 31, 2013

VALDOSTA — I hope that all of these high school kids don't get in to trouble over the summer break because of all the free time they will have. They should use their time wisely and be productive like doing volunteer work or something like that. Don't ruin your summer by making a bad choice or caving in to peer pressure.

Yet another high school graduation was ruined for me by those that insisted on yelling while the graduates’ names were being called. Are you proud of yourself? Did you think you were being cute by yelling and then leaving because you would be escorted out anyway? You only showed your ignorance and lack of respect for yourself, your graduate and no respect for others.

A presidential visit to any community puts tremendous stress on that community’s public safety resources (police, fire, EMS). The last thing the communities needed immediately following the tornadoes was a presidential visit; holding off until things became more settled was the right thing to do.

I am so tired of seeing broken glass left in the roadway after a car accident. Someone should take the responsibility to sweep it up and remove it.

While in Harvey’s in Hahira on Memorial Day, I had got more than what I had the money for. I stepped  outside to get money from my car and when I returned, some angel had already paid for the $3.11  that I owed. Thank you and God bless you!

A big rave to the funny little lady who is the baker at Texas Roadhouse. She bakes the best rolls and brownies in town!

OK Valdosta, you are keeping the reputation of the  third poorest city alive.  Landlords or management companies need to take responsibility and enforce the entants of themselves to clean up the yard. All it takes is  one in the neighborhood to ruin it.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.
