Raves for Wednesday, October 30, 2013

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

I was very impressed with the  Fire Department and  the way they paid respect to Ret. Chief  Lloyd Nolan.

Thanks to Lowndes High School Battle of the Border. There were many good bands participating.

Thank you to the Subway on Bemiss Road for still having some customer service. Sometimes all it takes is offering a cup of water to people jogging by.

Thank you to the local businesses and MAFB for having something for Halloween in the upcoming days and next week. I appreciate being able to take my child somewhere to celebrate because it doesn't seem like my neighborhood has been Trick or Treating these past few years.

A huge rave to everyone who has bought popcorn for our son's Cub Scout troop fundraiser. Thank you for supporting our community!

Thank you to the kind citizen who paid for the police officer's breakfast at the Inner Perimeter Road Chik-Fil-A on Oct. 23. I was so inspired, I paid for the breakfast of the person behind me. Thank you!

Thank you to the staff of Smith Northview Hospital. My husband had back surgery last week and everyone we had contact with was very nice and professional. Special thanks to his nurses: Christina and Brie and the lab lady that came around every night at 2 a.m. The food in the cafeteria was delicious. Good experience.

A big rave to the City of Valdosta for the new Woodrow Wilson Gornto Road connection. If this is what SPLOST  can do then you have my vote. Very neat project!

I would like to compliment Gabe at Lowe's for going above and beyond to help me locate exactly what I was looking for. I was clear across the building from where I needed to be and instead of him pointing and just telling me that it was on a certain aisle- he walked me all the way across the building and took me to the aisle. Customer service at its best. Thank  you.

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    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.
