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.

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    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.
