Rant & Raves for Wednesday, November 7, 2012

VALDOSTA — For all the ladies out there, regardless of your age, keep to this rule! Leggings are not pants, and tights are not leggings. Leggings are fine. Leggings are good. But leggings are not pants! This means that leggings should only ever be worn with long tops – and when we say “long” we mean if it doesn’t cover your butt, even if you bend over and touch your toes, it’s too short.

Thanks for suggesting the Better Mood Clinic. The office staff was very professional and I don't have to wait a month to see someone. God bless you!

Many thanks to Berrien County Hospital for sponsoring Community Day recently. It was evident considerable time and effort was put forth to host such an event.

To the ranter complaining about the Berrien coaches, the money could not be put to better use because the majority of those coaches are volunteers. Ask some questions next time instead of trying to shame others in the Rant and Rave.

How do we stop the Chow Town false alarm siren from blasting our neighborhood all night? Latest example, last Saturday night from 11 p.m. to 9:30 a.m. Sunday! Happens on average twice a month. It’s getting old!

Seriously? I drove through a neighborhood last night where the people already had their Christmas lights on! It's bad enough to see Christmas commercials already. Can you not be thankful first and then celebrate Christmas?

Can someone explain why Valdosta Lowndes Parks and Recreation would hold playoff games in Lake Park? I have two kids who play, one is playing in Lake Park and the other one at Freedom! Why not both at Vallotton so we can watch some of both games? And, by the way, the fields at Vallotton are not being used!

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    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.
