Raves for Wednesday, November 6, 2013

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

Thanks to all the people at the cystic fibrosis event last Saturday. Wild  Adventures did a super job of hosting the event. The children loved seeing and interacting with the animals.

The people in Old Wood Valley certainly appreciate its carriers. This  morning, it was here by 5:15 a.m. Thank you!

A big rave to Kelly and Jessica at Factor X fitness. They are always very polite and friendly in the mornings. They also seem to love their job and the kids.

Beautiful singing by the Morningside youth choir at the circus! We greatly enjoyed!

A big “thank you” to the three gentlemen that helped our daughter when her car overheated on Thursday at Murphy’s on Perimeter Road. We appreciate your kindness!

Raves to the Outlets at Lake Park for the Halloween for Hunger event. My children loved it ...

Rave for Sam’s employee. Thank you to the young man who helped me get my water into my car on Halloween. I did not get your name, but I want you to know that I appreciate your kindness.

A special thank you to the Lowndes County deputies that came to my home Sunday morning when someone was trying to break in. Due to your quick response time, the guy was apprehended. Again thanks and may God bless each and every one of you.

I am so blessed by participating in the choir at First United Methodist Church. Thank you, Lester, Cindy, Linda and soloists.

My wife and I love the new Woodrow Wilson extension to Gornto. Great job, city!

Thanks to Krista, the X-ray tech at South Georgia Medical Center that treated me with such compassion during my X-ray exam. Her sweet smile brightened my day, even though I was not feeling well. They should hire more people like her!

Thank you to my commissioner for personally talking to me about the upcoming SPLOST vote.

My husband and I went to Red Lobster on Friday  to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. When we finished eating, our waitress told us the couple sitting next to us  paid for our bill. We were overwhelmed and you helped to make our day. May God bless you!

    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!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.

    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.
