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!

    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.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
