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.

    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!”

    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.
