A RANT FOR THE MASS removal of all the trees along Bobby Jones and I-20. We like our trees and want to keep them. West Augusta is looking so sterile and desolate ... All it needs is lizards and sand dunes.
AMAZING WASTE of taxpayer money to offer GED prep classes. Everybody gets a shot at a tax-paid education. If you blow that one, you should be on your own.
A PHOTO of Episcopal Day School seventh-graders checking their weather station to "learn the effects of weather on the environment." Why must schools brainwash innocent kids?
A NOBEL PRIZE for hot air? Oh, wait ... that's a Nobel Prize for Global Warming awareness.
MARION BARNES ASKED, "How did we let this happen?" Duh. You voted for it! If the school board would stop micromanaging, then the educators could do their job!
A RANT FOR SYLVIA Cooper. It is people that think like her that hold Augusta back from progress.
