Rant & Rave for Monday, Oct. 14, 2013

-- — I saw in the paper Sunday that Valdosta High will be getting a new school. I think that is a complete waste of taxpayers’ money, considering that the school has had so many renovations. Please reconsider this.

If you go to a fast-food restaurant for take out, especially one of the chicken places, you may want to count your order. I've ordered a 10 piece at one place and a 12 piece at another. It turned out I got a 9 piece and an 11 piece. This wasn't the first time it happened where I got the "12" piece.

I see a lot of people in the classifieds looking for loving homes for their unwanted pets. I realize some of this is legitimate, but the rest of you need to be a loving home and have your pets spayed or neutered.

My heart goes out to Kendrick Johnson's parents. We must discover the truth about his death, and it is time for the sheriff to start talking, and for those that know something, step forward. This death and the way it has been handled and the death of Trayvon Martin, sadly show that racism is still rampant in the South. I am ashamed.

While I'm sure some people go to the football games to watch their children toot their horns, the majority are there to watch football. Don't get hurt because someone cares more about the game than about your child playing the xylophone.

I agree the Bridgemen deserve praise but I think they get it! When do they not get a standing ovation? They are the heart of the games. They play rocking stand music and start breaking it down, the crowd gets fired up. I have to admit, though, they almost let the Colquitt band outdo them.

    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!”

    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.
