Rants and Raves

Comments from readers:


THIS IS A RANT for the Richmond County Board of Education. I am a retired Army sergeant major with many years of leadership experience. I am absolutely certain that I can handle the Richmond County superintendent's job. And I can do it for less than half of what you are paying Charles Larke. I would not require a contract, and you could fire me if I did not perform 100 percent better than Larke is doing. Just put the job up for bid and I will prove it.

MAY GOD BLESS the wonderful volunteer couple who not only picked up approximately 200 books going to the Appleby Library and three bookcases going to the Habitat for Humanity store, but stayed and assembled my new little bookcase for me. What a wonderful inspiration they are to all who come in contact with them.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Let's get over this Walker deal and Larke deal and get back to work on something else. We've had enough of Walker and Larke. Life goes on. Continue on.

I HAVEN'T SEEN a blue jay in two years and I saw one yesterday in my yard.

THE CENTER LANE is for left turns. Look at the big arrows. If you're making a right turn out of that lane - in other words, merging with traffic - it's wrong. Get it right.

THOSE STUDENTS WHO got caught with drugs in Columbia County - where did they get them from? The law officers should seek it out and find out.
