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.

    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.

    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.
