Raves for Wednesday, November 27, 2013

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

Thank you to the staff at Factor Fitness. I had a flat tire in front of their business. So many of them came out to help. Thank you and God bless.

Raves for Kathy with Valdosta City Water Department after hours answering service. She is the most pleasant and helpful person!

A big rave to VDT classifieds for their help when I was trying to find homes for a litter of neutered cats, whose owner had passed away. I had advertised through various social media but all the adoptions took place because of VDT classifieds. Because of you I was able to find the perfect home for each cat. Thanks, VDT.

Congratulations to 5th graders Santos, Emma, Emma Leigh, Emily, Madison and Jack from Westside Elementary for their 4-H awards for Cloverleaf District Project Achievement. You represented your school, Valdosta, and Lowndes County so well. We are very proud!

Thank you to Sue at The Valdosta Vault! So kind and took her time helping me find the perfect chain to replace the flimsy one for my mom's soon-to-be Christmas gift. Truly one of the best jewelry stores here and they do all of their repairs on-site. I don't think any other jewelry store in this area can say the same. Happy one year anniversary to Valdosta Vault.  

Mr. Oliver, thank you. When we saw Snoopy on your house we knew Christmas was here. Hope someone still will place Snoopy on the house for years to come.

Congratulations to the Boys and Girls Club 7&8 year old All-Star football team for winning first place in the TitleTown Classic. You guys played great and were a lot of fun to watch.

    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!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.
