Raves for Wednesday, March 27, 2013

VALDOSTA — Rave to all the people who work so hard to put on the Easter music and programs in our area. We are so blessed to have them do such good quality of work.

Huge raves to Deep South Sanitation! Their service has been outstanding since the county closed the dump sites. When you call with a question, you even get to talk to the owner.

A big rave to VSU for Science Saturday! Our family had a great time learning about physics and really enjoyed the planetarium show. Thanks!

I want to rave about Tiffany at First State Bank on Baytree Road. She searched through a lot of $5 bills, looking for newer ones for me to use with Easter cards for my grandchildren. Her efforts, with all her responsibilities, pleased this grandmother. First State Bank is lucky to have her.

Raves to Park Avenue United Methodist Church for your annual production of The Promise. It is such a blessing during the holy week and a reminder of our savior's love for us.

There is nothing as beautiful as Valdosta in the springtime. The azaleas and flowering trees are gorgeous.

 Congratulations to Valwood girls trio on winning the state literary competition at Valdosta State on Wednesday.

Raves to the VDT for featuring Jim Mullen's column. It is always delightful reading, and especially on Wednesdays. It redeems those boring raves on the same page.

Rave for the Lowndes High Drama Club Play “Beauty and the Beast”, it was outstanding. I wish more people could attend this. The young people are very, very, talented. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Big rave to Family Pizza near Moody! A combination of great food and friendly staff is the reason I've been going there for over 20 years.

Love the new Nashville tractor store in town! My husband raves about the friendly service he receives. He is always talking about the customer service, especially the young man, Kile. He says the young man is especially helpful and knows the business. Wish all the stores in town had this kind of service.

I would like to take the time and thank my daughter’s teacher at Sallas Mahone Elementary. Ms. White. You are the best!! We are sure going to miss you next year!!

Thank you to Petsmart for holding pet adoption events on the weekend!

    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!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”
