Raves for Wednesday, September 4, 2013

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

Last year, on the 26th of August, I almost died with salmonella. God was the first person I needed to thank, but also Dr. Urbonas and the ICU nurses that knew their business. Also the others that were there for my healing! I don't remember all of you but I know all of you were there for me! Thanks again, God bless all of you!

To the driver of the little white truck at Chick-Fil-A on Thursday, your Pay-it-Forward for my meal made my day! Thank you and God bless you!

I was recently hospitalized at SGMC on the third floor. I want to say a big heartfelt thanks to Erica, Misty and Monique for taking such wonderful care of me. They were some of the kindest, most caring people I have ever met there. Also, Zach from the blood lab was fantastic in drawing blood. Thank all of you so much.

A big thank you to officer Willis and her partner with VPD for your quick and most appropriate response Friday night. The action you took was what our family has needed for months. We are grateful for the way you handled the situation.

Two thumbs up to the McDonald’s on Ashley Street, especially to Miranda at the cashier. She is so kind and sweet; she makes me want to keep going back.

Thank you to the person who picked up the tab at Olive Garden for all of the Langdale residents having a night out.  What a generous and kind thing to do. You made their night. They are all still talking about it.

Steak n' Shake has a wonderful waitress, Sabrina! Thank you for chatting with me after I finished eating my free Birthday Burger.

    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.
