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.

    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!

    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!”
