Raves for Wednesday, September 18, 2013

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

Thanks to the Kohl's employee that made sure my phone was returned to me after I left it in a shopping cart. She called my last contact and was able to determine the owner of the phone. Also, thanks to the person who turned it in to the service desk.

Thank you to the Sheriff’s Deputy on N. Valdosta Road. He helped me put my full gas can in my car. There are still good people everywhere. Thank you!

Dean Poling, I loved your tribute to Ursula Waller. I was blessed to share a season with her with my  three sons growing up.  Each day we shared with her was a gift from God. Thank you for the article. Blessings.

I was glad to see an organization at VSU honoring "The Fallen" on 9/11! Kudos’ to Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity. That is an awesome U.S. flag!

Just wanted to tell the person in front of us at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, thank you for buying our meal! It was a bright spot in an otherwise dreary and depressing day! We'll be paying it forward!

I would like to congratulate the VHS Wildcats on their win against the Brooks County Trojans. Great win, team! Keep up the good work!

A big thank you the crew that Lowndes County sent to patch Copeland Road between Madison Highway and the volunteer fire station. I have never driven over such a smooth patch. Great job!

A rowdy hurrah to the great teachers around here. I don't know how you do it with all the paperwork. Thanks!

Thanks to Annette, Bobby, Alice and staff at Convenient Care for the excellent job they did with me. Keep up the good work. Thanks again.

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
