Raves for Wednesday, November 13, 2013

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

I want to send a rave to the owners of Nufound Treasures on Northside Drive. I have been in this store several times and every time I go in there I find such great deals. It is inviting and they have so many "different" and unique things. They are so friendly and willing to help any way they can.

Many thanks to everyone who helped make Cub Scout Family Camping Weekend at Camp Patten in Lakeland a success. The boys and their families had an awesome time!

A big rave to my doctor for sending me to Limbcare Prosthetics. The entire staff there is top notch. The office staff is always pleasant and very caring, and the leg man took the extra time that I needed to get me up on my feet again.  Now it’s time to go dancing.

A big rave to Dr. Andrew Benefield and nurses at SGMC. We brought our son in for stitches and once we made it past all the check in and triage, he was so wonderful to get the job done and get us on our way as soon as possible. Thank you for understanding that we just wanted to get our son home and in bed. Kudos for all you deal with day in and day out.

Kudos to the folks at the new Publix.

Thank you St. John’s for the Color Run. We had a blast!

What a classy, gracious move by Councilman Vickers with his Thank You sign for those who voted for SPLOST VII!

The new section of Gornto is fabulous! It is so easy to drive from the mall to Ashley. Thanks, city, county, state for what you’ve done with this.

    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!”

    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!
