Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:


THIS IS A HUGE rave for the people from Abilene Baptist Church. After attending the "Singing Christmas Tree" for the first time I want to say what a wonderful performance. Congratulation to Thomas Sunderland and his cast of performers and the choir for doing a spectacular job. What a wonderful way to start the Christmas Holiday Season.

I HAVE A RANT for the lady on TV getting the free coats at the Salvation Army. If you are so poor and disabled and can't buy coats for your children, then I would have at least taken the bluetooth out of my ear before I appeared on the news.

A RAVE TO Mike Dees and Augusta Amusements in bringing to Fort Discovery -- as the last show before it closes -- Nick Hilscher and his big band doing a holiday tribute to Frank Sinatra this past Saturday night! This was one of the best holiday shows in Augusta!

WHAT KIND OF nitwits build a zillion-dollar arena in Minnesota and put an inflatable roof on it that would cave in with heavy snow?

I WANT TO say thanks to the family that found my daughter's purse at the Augusta Mall Food Court on Saturday. They turned it in to security and nothing was missing from it. It is nice to know that there are still honest people out there willing to do the right thing. God bless you, and I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas

ST. SEBASTIAN HAS barely opened, and the red lights from Reynolds into University aren't synched. One light is red while the next is green. It's only a few lights; this is ridiculous. I'm not shocked, but they need to get it together.

ANYONE WHOSE No. 1 concern is the future of "the party" on either side of the aisle needs to be swept into the dust bin of history.

FIRST OF ALL, we have to drive 15 miles to get to any decent restaurants since we live on the southside. Then we have to put up with all of the hollering and carrying on, and most of the noise is being caused by adults, not kids. I wish restaurants would tell unruly and loud patrons to quiet down, because they are ruining everyone else's meal.

TO THE MEN in the sedan that broke into my car last night, which was parked at a church downtown, what you took had no value to you. The photos cannot be replaced. Shame on you for giving a grandmother much sorrow for losing those pictures in the album.

I SERVED IN the Army for 20 years and served with gays as well as straights. There were no more personnel problems with one group than with the other.
