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!

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    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.
