Raves for Wednesday, October 16, 2013

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

Ms. Janet with the Hahira  Library deserves a big rave. She is always congenial, helpful and accommodating to all of the patrons. I moved here from out of state a few years ago and she has made me feel like a friend. She is so helpful. I  enjoy going to that library.

Kudos to Texas Roadhouse for all you do in the community and for supporting Breast Cancer Awareness.

As a retired teacher, it was refreshing to see the group  from Highland Christian at Dairy Queen on Monday. They were very polite and respectful.

A big thanks to city yard waste truck  #2118 for their help for getting my yard waste to the truck. Thank you!

Kudos to the ladies at the motor vehicle office who helped me obtain a disabled parking sign for my mom. After repeated tries where my address came up as Cook County they were persistent and called Atlanta to get the correct county (Lowndes) on our record. We are very thankful to them for all they did.

A big rave to Cannon Tree Service. We had them do some pretty extensive pruning and removal work on three trees Friday and they were great. When they left, you would have never known we had as much cutting and grinding done as our lawn was as neat and clean as it was before they arrived. Many thanks to Dale and the crew.

Rave to the Starbuck's morning crew. They are always friendly and smiling (even though they are up so early in the morning!). Their multi-tasking skills always amaze as well. Keep up the good work.

Congratulations to Open Bible Christian School's Varsity Soccer team for winning the 2013 Region Title and the 2013 State Championship on Friday.

    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.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
