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!

    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!”

    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!
