Rant & Raves for Wednesday, November 7, 2012

The Valdosta Daily Times

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!

The person complaining about the churches wanting money doesn't get it. The church cannot survive without funds to operate, pay its utilities, etc. The church cannot help the poor or live out its mission in the sinful world without money. You don't stay alive as a church without money.

It does seem like employees everywhere are being more and more rude to their customers. Why is that? Their business relies on customers in order for their company to survive. It's almost like you're interrupting their day in order for them to take care of your needs. Fine. I'll go somewhere else.

A big rave to VSU grounds keepers. It always looks beautiful. A big plus for Valdosta.
