Raves for Wednesday, May 22, 2013

VALDOSTA — David Johnston's book "Free Lunch" is a great read discussing industrial development authorities, grants to business to come to town, pro ball parks and how much they cost local taxpayers, and government regulation. It is a good book, well documented.

I was at Sam’s Club gas station recently and I had trouble getting my card to work and Monica helped me. She is very polite and nice.

I just wanted to praise the Boys Track Team for Brooks High School on a job well done. They went to state meets and represented themselves well by bringing home three state championships. Good job, guys!

Good choice in a new coach Lady Vikettes!! Will be a turning point in the program and see much success headed your way.

I am thankful I chose to stick with Deep South Sanitation. Our trash is always picked up right on time and he never leaves anything behind. After all my neighbors' trash is "picked up," often items are strewn by the road and the cans are either left in the road or fallen in or beside the road. Get rid of the big company and move to Deep South, if you want true customer service!

I want to rave about the incredibly friendly staff at the Waffle House on Hwy. 84. They take the time to visit with customers and provide great service. You never disappoint!

My deepest sympathies to Susan Grooms on the loss of her spouse. I was very happy to see her column back in this morning's paper. I don't even know her but feel like she's a friend each Sunday when I read her column.

We would like to thank our neighbor, Mr. Jimmy Stephenson, for his help in putting up our horse fence. He helped make a young girl and her mom very happy!

    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.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
