Raves for Wednesday, October 2, 2013

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

We wish to send a grateful praise for the gentleman who paid for our Sunday dinner at Miller's BBQ. This kind person must have overheard us tell an acquaintance at a nearby table we were celebrating our 57th wedding anniversary, so thank you, kind sir, for your caring gesture. May God richly bless you.

Thank you to Thomas Auto owner Donnie Thomas. A Christian who walks the walk he talks. All businessmen should live so right with God in conducting their profession.

A big thanks to Mary at Office Max. She did an awesome job on the order. Mary offered great customer service and was so courteous, not to mention, patient through the entire process which is hard to find these days. Thanks again, Mary!

Just wanted to say thank you very much to Langdale Ford. It is a great thing you did for the local schools. I went and drove for my daughter. All of your employees were very nice. I enjoyed the time I spent there. Thanks again.

Hats off to the Chicken Hut in Quitman. We went in on Friday night and everything was great.  The waiter, Mattie was great. She made sure the  order was correct, chatted with us and everything was good. Thanks for opening in Quitman.

On my first visit to Lowe’s I was so impressed by the kindness I received from their employees. Everyone was so helpful and nice. I will definitely go back. Special thanks to John, flooring guy, and the very helpful cashier. You are great!

I ran in the Get a Mammy 5K this weekend and wanted to thank the guy that was running opposite (not in the race) of everyone giving out high fives and encouragement to all the runners. It gave me a boost right there at the end of my run. Thanks!

I would like to commend Lynn at Southern Ops Investigations for the caring and sincere concern she showed me during my consultation. Thank you! It is really appreciated.

Thank you to the nice person in the Chick-fil-A drive through for buying my lunch. You have no idea what a bad day I was having and that gesture totally turned it around. Thank you!

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
