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.

    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!”
