Something is wrong..... - 8/23/2014

I am an educated African American woman with 10 years of experience in the judicial field and I am also an attorney. I have applied for jobs that I am 100% certain that I qualified for. For some reason I have not gotten so much as an interview in the two years that I have lived in this city. I have been told that my name is "ethnic" and that it can be used to screen me out of selection. It has also been suggested that I use my middle name, which is a "mainstream" name. I have been told these things by individuals who were Caucasian and individuals who were African American. I have never experienced anything like this in my life.

It's their way or "they'll teach you" and "fix you - 2/9/2013

The Courts are wofully inept, prejudicail and incompetent (up north we call the Kangaroo Courts) to quote the State Judge "son we don't use rules here" no rules Society does not function period! Code Enforcement is a prejudicial branch of the local cronies. The Chamber of Commerce is ever power and ever present. If your from the North they'll fix your wagon, their solution is through the Court Clerk's Office they'll go after your Credit Score by means of untruthful entries into your credit report (Experian to be precise as it is a GA Company) you can easily get it removed from TransUnion & Equifax. DO NOT BUY anything here. I don't need the money and am now in the process of selling what I was stupid enough to have bought when I got here in 2004 for less then I purchased it for nine years ago. The locals don't have a pot to pee in nor a window to throw it out of. The Zoning Department is run by a woman who does as she pleases for the locals and circumvents pulic hearing and due notice. If you can figure out the laws, procedures and legal objections they attack you personally. They have now adopted (loosely put) the Nothern Codes and Policies (Unified Land Development Code, Burn, Noise Ordinaces but believe m they are prejudicially applied if your a Yankee they're in place to be used against you if your a local they aren't applicable. I've sen enough your best friend in Valdosta GA is a fence fully surrounding your property with a chain and locked gate even then watch you dogs these people will do their level best "to fix your wagon" and not only get even if they could figure out how to get ahead they would but now that involves using your back as their first step. Fair warning your just a few miles from the Florida State Line, heading south, and I cannot see any reason not to keep on going! Just watch your speed as there ar cops, troopers and sherriffs on bridges and in medians looking to take the few dollars you have in a bank or pocket and make it their's! Speaking of which why have they built so many banks when the locals have no money to put therein? Moreover why the shopping centers and restaurants when no one here can afford a food stamp? Besides that the locals are terribly dirty people so I wouldn't eat in a local restaurant. I drive into Florida to dine out as do most other Northerns I've met around here. Most Northerners don't make it they buy, immediately sell and leave so save yourself the time and aggravation aside from the losses.... keep on going! If you stick around make sure you drive a pick up truck don't useblinkers and wear a ball cap or camoflage so you do not attract attention and that gos for ladies as well as men. Take one look around and you'll notice the genetics here aren't bad if your looking for a cross between a smurf & one of the seven dwarfs...

Just because Valdosta has always done it that way is their phrase they should be open to new change, There is a new generation being born and we are about change for the good of everyone.

Small Town thinking in a growing town - 1/11/2010

Ever hear the phrase "that's the way we've always done it?" Get ready to hear it A LOT in this town. The same people have been running this town for a long time and they take advantage of you if you are not "well connected." They will try to run you out.

Nice, but boring. - 2/10/2009

Valdosta is an OK city. Just moved here, and the first thing I noticed was that there was a church or bank on almost every corner. Not much of a night-life here. Expect to pay expensive rates for apts. There are a lot of fast food joints, and dollar stores. It's a good place if you love football. It's close to FL. Most of the people I've encountered were nice. The local university is really popular here. Valdosta has some really beautiful homes out 'in the country' area. Overall, a nice city.

Schools - 10/22/2008

Valdosta has two very distinct school systems, the city schools and the county schools. The have different school year calendars and because the county system is highly sought after they have very strict residency rules. You must provide proof of residecy every year. The county school system is one of the finest in the state. There has been talk of combining the systems but it was met with much opposition. The best thing about having two systems is the high school football team rivalry

Valdosta can't wait to leave. - 8/14/2008

Valdosta is a step back in history. Not in a good way mind you. There is a church on every corner of the city just about. Which pretty much explains the total void of any night life. There is very little to do here. Fast food abounds and we pretty much deep fry EVERYTHING. The job market is crap. Unless you enjoy working for 10 bucks an hour or less. With a degree and experience. Some fishing and hunting spots here and there. The only problem is if you are not a local you will be greeted with "this has been my spot since.....". At which point you should just move on. The grade schools here suck. Very limited budget and not much put into education other than the local football stadium which is amazing. If you are in to that sort of thing. There is an amusement park down the road. It's not bad. They have a few concerts (country mostly). The people are very friendly and helpfull. Summers range from hot to insanely hot and humid. The winters do get chilly (freezing and below). Not terrible and not very long lived though. The cost of living is high like everywhere else now. You just make less money. Over all I'd have to say I can't wait to leave and I hope it's soon.

Nice community - 5/26/2006

We moved here from the mississippi Gulf Coast, an found that the people here are very friendly, the schools are good, and the atmosphere is peaceful. An old southern hospitality permiates the aea.

General - 4/28/2006

Small town but within a few hours drive of most wanted cultural and recreational events. Limited air transport-only to Atlanta to connect but 2 hour drive to Jacksonville Fl or Tallahassee Fl airports. Low housing cost, low property tax. Reasonable health care availability but cost a little high. Overall, if want smaller town traffic, culture, and cost but want reasonable access to larger city resources then Valdosta is an excellent place to live.

I attended college in Valdosta and thought it was behind the times in race relations. I have never in all my days ever been called the "N" word nor have I ever been followed around the store like I was going to put something in my pocket until I attended college down there.
