Raves for Wednesday, May 1, 2013

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

A huge rave to Academy Sports, VLPRA & Kinderlou Forest for hosting the Kids Golf Clinic. The children had a great time learning from the pros! Thank you!

Congratulations to the Cook High School boys and girls tennis teams for making it to the GHSA Sweet 16. Keep up the good work.

Huge rave to Dr. Lacie Guy and her staff at Valdosta Chiropractic and Rehab! Not only have I received great physical benefits from my visits, but I have also admired how they go above and beyond to treat each and every patient like family. Keep up the great work!

A big rave to Terry, Tony, and Amy at Ace Electric Co. on Perimeter. They went above and beyond to help me Tuesday. Great customer service is hard to come by and kudos for Ace for keeping such great employees.

A huge rave to Vanessa at Mama June's! She is the best!

I want to thank everyone who had a part in our children being able to golf with the pros. My son really enjoyed it. He said it was so much fun and he felt like he was with movie stars. Thank you for something positive and free for our children to participate in.

Thanks to the person who found my purse at the Valdosta Mall and turned  it over to their personnel. I did not expect to get it back. There are honest people in Valdosta. Thanks.

Kudos to the Clyattville Crew Young Men's Outreach. While others ridicule the homeless, they took the time to feed the homeless under the James M. Beck Overpass. God will bless you young men.

A big rave to WAFT radio this morning for challenging area businesses to play Christian radio as office music and on their phone systems. We need more Christian-based businesses in our area!

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    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!”
