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.

    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.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.

    The rodeo was a great event for the area, but hopefully next year there will be more seating. Many people paid ahead of time and didn’t get to see anything.
