Rant & Rave for Monday, Oct. 8, 2012

The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — The reason cyclists ride in the middle of the lane is too many drivers do not provide enough space if they don't. Drivers try to squeeze by the cyclist if they ride near the shoulder, which increases the risk of being hit exponentially. It's a tough balance for a cyclist of being respectful and staying alive.

My girlfriend, that lives with me, and splits all household expenses gets her income 100 percent from government assistance. Her disposable income is $110 a week. I work one full-time job and a part time job at a bachelor degree level, pay the other half of household expenses and have a disposable income of $20 a week. I'm in the wrong business.

I have been a patient of Dr. John D. Anderson for over 30 years. He has always answered all my questions and has never rushed me in and out of his office. His staff is always courteous, proficient and professional. I wouldn't trade my doctor for all the tea in China.

What justifies VPD using lights and siren to escort the football team to the Stadium? How is that a valid "emergency"? We take football in this city too seriously and it’s about time we treat it like a sport, and not the end all to be all of Valdosta/Lowndes County!

Thank you to the three girls "Open Bible Seniors" who helped me at the north end Chick-fil-A on Thursday night. Your help and kindness was greatly appreciated!  Also, big rave to the Chick-fil-A employees! Y'all are always professional and courteous.

If you want a wonderful doctor that has a wonderful staff, please go and visit Dr. Stewart Williams with Valdosta Family Medicine. He is very caring and he is a great doctor. Plus he does take time with his patients. God bless’ Dr. Williams and his 2 PA's (Paige) and (Brandy). You will get excellent care I promise.

Don't tell everyone about the good doctors in town. Now everyone will go to them and we will be waiting an hour or two like everywhere else!

To the person wanting a doctor that listens and doesn't rush you through, check out Dr.  Dennis Thomas. Been my doctor for a lot of years.

There is a wonderful waitress at Fuji restaurant in the mall. A rave for Jin. she always has a smile and provides very good service

If all of you private school and home schooling traitors had stayed with the public schools and worked for improvements everyone would be better off.
