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.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    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!
