Rant & Rave for Monday, Jan. 27, 2014

-- — I can't believe PetSmart allows a rescue agency with animals without shots there on the weekends. A dog who was sick with Parvo was at one of the adoption events. My pets are vaccinated, but it isn't safe to have the rescue animals put my personal dog at risk. Please make vaccinations mandatory for rescues/shelters before coming to PetSmart.

Don’t know why everybody is complaining about gas prices. I just got $10 worth and it still just cost me $10.

Rep. Scott needs to speak to the Industrial Authority, they are creating jobs like crazy over there. It's not clear where these jobs are, or how much it costs to create them, but we need to trust them. Oh, and they'll be in executive session, if you need them.

Statement from representative for Lowndes County Industrial Authority was quite enlightening, but it was really all about Project BS-14, that replaced Project BS-13, LOL! And both “BS” Projects are real deep in progress and way over schedule.

What is happening to Hahira? Our small town that was so quaint and full of country atmosphere? Why are we cluttering it with big stores with so many empty store fronts already? Growth seems to be what our little town is all about now. You have taken away the charm that made this town so likable by the residents that live here now.

Maybe the reason Ruby Tuesday's shut down was because their menu was over-priced and their food mediocre. Like it or not, Valdosta will never again be a manufacturing/agricultural center. The city continues to exist only because of Moody, VSU, and SGMC. Perhaps you should press those institutions for more job creation.

The trash on the side of the road and the big old TV thrown on someone else's property are due to ignorance and disregard for anyone but themselves, period. The same ignorance that blinds us to things like a garbage franchise that keeps our garbage bill lower than any other, and keeps multiple garbage trucks from filling our neighborhoods daily. Come into the 21st century. Enlighten yourself. Have some regard for others.

Notice the litter along Jerry Jones and North Valdosta Road. We’ve tried the Glitter and still have litter. Now how about signs to reinforce the signs.

To all of the people complaining about trash being thrown along side the roads, just remember trashy people throw out trash.

    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!”
