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!

    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.

    For every scientist you bring forth that says there is such a thing as global warming, I’ll bring two that says it is a myth.

    I have a tip for the local restaurants who sell breakfast pastries and such. You open at 5 a.m. If your entire menu is not ready by 6 a.m. (or even 6:30), you need to reschedule your cooks. When you don’t have what we want, we do not come back. We take our business elsewhere. Use this info to improve yours businesses.

    Thanks to the gentleman who stopped to help me change my tire on a bridge. I was trying to get my daughter to the doctor. Thanks to him, I was only five minutes late.

    This town kills me. You expect to have your sewage problem that runs into the river, police and fire protection, road repairs and new paving, etc., without paying for it. Your taxes are nowhere near the taxes in many Northern states. Shaking my head, y’all.

    You can enjoy a “wonderful” meal anywhere if you pay enough. Money talks.

    A rave for the VDT editor who prints data from both sides of the global warming debate. Cal Thomas points out that global cooling is ignored by substituting computer model data instead of actual temperature data. Evidence tampering is a crime and these “deniers” should be prosecuted. Many nations ignore and refuse to participate in the “global warming” scam to transfer wealth from industrialized nations to developing nations.

    Pay attention all residents of Lowndes County (including the cities). We voted for SPLOST, now they are raising our taxes anyway, instead of cutting back wasteful spending. Now it appears that the school board is joining in on wasting our tax money by raising the school tax for all residents. I suggest everyone start becoming an educated voter and find out what your candidate stands for before you cast your vote.

    This is about the ranter on redirecting Ashley and Patterson Street traffic. I have seen too many near misses (hits) on these streets due to people having to wait numerous light changes in order to make a left turn and just gunning it.
