Rant & Rave for Monday, Nov. 5, 2012

-- — Parents always seem to mess things up when it comes to kids. Take sporting events. The kids seem to be having a fun and great time, but then the parents start getting involved and before you know it a fight has broken out. Is it the kids fighting on the field? No. It's the parents in the stands.

Do you know what's going to happen once the new VHS school opens? Families who reside in the county will begin to send their children to that school rather than Lowndes because it'll be the newest school around. Some people will say that won't happen but you just wait and see. Everyone just loves having the latest gadgets.

If you're concerned about beggars loitering outside of stores, just inform store management and they'll do something about it. It's their property and they can have that person removed. I don't mind helping out people in need but some of these beggars are scam artists. A few of them hurts everyone else who really need the help.

To the person who stole our pumpkin out of our yard, thank you for ruining my family's Halloween night!

If classified ads had pictures and prices, then the people selling these items couldn't get you on the phone to deal with you. Curiosity is part of what makes the sales experience. If you knew those things right off the bat, you wouldn't bother with the seller. And then the seller would lose a potential customer or buyer.

If anybody needs a good psychiatric doctor or counselor, AR Psychiatric  and Counseling Center on N. Oak St. Ext. is the best,

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful Halloween at Cypress Lake. I would like to thank the people who live there. It’s a great thing that you do, and to all the others that go all out. People like you make others want to do more.

    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.
