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!

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    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!
