Rant & Rave for Tuesday, MArch 26, 2013

-- — As a paying parent at Valwood, I’m getting tired of all these scholarship athletes.

So tired of all the articles in the paper talking about Lowndes sweeping Valdosta. Like it’s such a great accomplishment to beat a school with 1,200 less students.

I take issue with the eye dropper in a full bathtub theory. You must work for the city. Don’t just take anybody’s OK on the safe fish. I want EPA or EPD approval in the paper. Once you couldn’t cross the river with windows down. Fish were deformed and had worms in them from sewage in the river.

It will take a while to build the new treatment plant. In the meantime, we have heavy rains coming in April and the hurricane season, too. Please spend the money to build the last half of the berm up so we don’t have this same awful happening in the middle of the year and ruin the river again. Wake up!

Since it rained over the weekend do we need to tell our neighbors to the south to not drink the water?

Do unto others as you want others to do unto you ... When you tell somebody that you will do or give them something, do it ... don’t lie about it ... cause one day it will all come back to you and bite you where the sun don’t shine.

Is it smart to announce your intention to run for reelection to the Valdosta City Council after ignoring the sewer problem for years? He should be the first one tossed out for this debacle!

Parents of school children ... It is going to be cold/cool this week. Please don’t send your child to school in summer clothes and sandals.

Please bring back at least one garbage collection site, if only on Saturdays. Advanced Disposal can’t keep up. Some families are larger than others, and when requesting a second can, we were told to sit the bags next to the cans on the ground. With garbage pick-up a day late, the bags are torn open by strays. Bulk pick-up was also late, and was rummaged through by someone at the end of my driveway. Not to mention how unsightly it is. If Advanced can’t do the job, give the citizens an opportunity to take care of their own disposal needs on a pay as you go basis.

Only in South Georgia do folks think it’s normal to ask a 35-year-old woman if she is a grandma!

Yet another AT&T rate increase. Time to expand Mediacom. Come on up Bemiss towards Moody.

    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!

    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!
