Rant and Raves for Wednesday, October 17, 2012

VALDOSTA — Fantastic game, Wildcats! Bad luck at the end, but you played a great game!!!

Last year’s final Winnersville moments were all about skill; this year’s were all about luck. Cats played a better game, and I will ALWAYS be proud to be a WILDCAT!!

There used to be a central point of entry into community services for persons with housing, rent, medical and other issues, but that agency has lost favor with the churches. This has caused other groups to take up the cause of helping people, but without a central clearing facility, it is very easy for those with transportation and the nerve to do it to receive services that were meant for others. A database that identifies people once and is available across the community would make donated and grant dollars go farther.

What a classic! It was great to see the community come together like they did for the Winnersville classic. Good food, great sportsmanship and just an all around good time. It’s great to live in such a wonderful city.

After the Lowndes Valdosta football game we were at the Waffle House on North Valdosta Road and three of the Lowndes players was there, one of them asked if we had went to the game and thanked us for our support. That made a great night of football even better. It was great knowing that the players appreciate the fan support.

Big Bird the flap — IT IS time to kick the big kid out of the support nest and let him fly on his own. I would even consider wringing his neck, plucking, dressing, cooking and eating him. $440 million/year feeds a lot of kids. PBS will survive.

Here is the state law on bicycles, read it:

    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!”
