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.

    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.
