Raves for Wednesday, August 21, 2013

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

Thank you, Cherie Gregory and the Potter’s House employees for your cheery greetings and joyful smiles. We really appreciate the help and love shown when we shopped. Thank you for being concerned about our problems and famiiles. You shared Jesus Christ with your customers for over 30 years. God bless.

Thank you to my father's neighbors for helping us get him into the car last week. The weather was so hot and he just couldn't move anymore. He has always said he is blessed with great neighbors and he is so right.

A great big thank you to Michael Gard and the family at Mike and Son Service Center. They have kept our cars going for many years. Great service and fair prices.

Matt and Mykie at Prince Automotive Group Service Department are awesome! They went above and beyond to repair my vehicle, and Matt assured they were up to date with GM policies, passing the savings along to the customer. Your customer service was excellent and you both made my day.

I appreciate Chrystal who works at the Dollar General in Lake Park. She is friendly and is willingly to help wait on customers when they come in.

Highest raves to the VFD and other first responders who were on scene at the chemical plant explosion. We are overworked, underpaid, and oftentimes unappreciated; however, everybody did what we do best. Proud to call myself a Valdosta firefighter. We rose to the occasion and got the job done.

To the ladies in the Valwood Extended Day program, thank you so much for all you do to keep my children safe and making it fun for them. They always look forward to school thanks to you wonderful ladies. Again thank you so much for all y'all do.

    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.

    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.
