HATS OFF TO the mayor for starting the festival back up. Augusta needs to have more unity. And please, never let another woman like that get on stage to voice her opinion. Her husband should be embarrassed.
I just want to say shame, shame to the lady who answered my call at the Augusta animal control today. I am a grandma with five kids here at home, and there is a snake in my backyard. The lady who answered the phone could have cared less that everybody was scared. She said she didn't care and just to call the police. Shame on her.
