Raves for Wednesday, November 20, 2013

VALDOSTA — Thanks to the person in front of me at Zacadoos on  Baytree Road who paid for my breakfast last Friday. This is the first time in my life this has happened to me. I thank you.

During a recent procedure at SGMC Outpatient Center, I met three caring and compassionate professionals. Thank you Dr. Querin, Katrina, RTUR and the young man from the lab.

Many thanks to Lowndes 4-H for their Cloverleaf program! Congrats to all of those who participated in the District Project Achievement in Moultrie. Our area has many talented fifth and sixth grade students!

For those that didn't know him, James Oliver passed away recently. His house was the Snoopy House at Christmas on Jerry Jones Road and brought many years of excitement to young children. Thank you, Mr. Oliver, and God speed.

A big rave to the City of Valdosta for the Gornto cut through. It is just wonderful. Thank you so much!

I would like to thank all the restaurants in the local area that provided a free meal on Veterans Day to all who served this great nation. I would also like to thank those who orchestrated the Veterans Day events held at the Bazemore-Hyder Stadium. A classy event!

Many thanks to the faculty and staff at Moulton-Branch Elementary! We had a great time eating Thanksgiving lunch with our son in Mrs. Causey and Mrs. Dufresne's class. It was well-organized, the kids were adorable, and the food was great!

A rave to Ms. Smith for her recent Letter to the Editor. Being a Vietnam vet, I Grrr'ed a bit at the picture but then realized that after the draft ended, less than 1 percent of our population protects the rest. They just do not understand ... or maybe they do.

    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.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.
