CONGRATULATIONS TO the Knob Hill Homeowners Association for broadcasting to the world where NOT to buy a new home. That should really have an impact on your precious property values.

BRAVO TO Gov. Nikki Haley for refusing to make the state cover a GOP convention. That's a political event and should not be paid by other taxpayers. This lady impresses me more and more over time with her good sense. Even as a Democrat, I have to tip my hat to her! And a Boo Hiss Boo to those other Republicans that tried to run the cost of the convention onto taxpayers.

REALLY A SHAME all those people had their golf cart batteries stolen and wires cut by thieves in the same community. I honestly hope investigators with the police catch who is responsible and they are given what they deserve times two. I hate a thief.

AZZIZ KEEPS changing the MCG names. Why? Why fix what ain't broke? Carter already did that, and look what a glorious mess he left.

ISN'T IT COSTING the taxpayers money to have Fred Russell draw up a financing plan for this nebulous stadium idea? Last time I checked, the city administrator was a county employee, and I'm assuming all of these negotiations and drafts will occur "on the clock." Can't we just wait until the team owners have a concrete proposal and then go from there?

AS FAR AS I'm concerned, I will continue to say MCG and not GHSU. The same for Clarks Hill. I will never refer to Clarks Hill as Thurmond Lake. I also still say the Civic Center.

REALLY HOPE Richmond County police catch whomever is responsible for stealing those golf cart batteries in the same community on the news. Sad to see all those people have to deal with that type nonsense in their lives.

OUR PRESIDENT reminds me of the man at work who walks around with a clipboard trying to look busy. We constantly see photo ops at factories, at college, at backyard meetings and other such photo opportunities. When does he stay in Washington and do real work?

A SO-CALLED "gay" claims Southerners don't like homosexuals. He (she?) claims we have a "Southern mindset that ... we're all wrong." So, go North, young man (girl, question mark), go North!

PLEASE REMEMBER that the pads of dogs' feet get burned by hot asphalt. Yesterday, when it was 100 degrees, someone in my neighborhood was walking a puppy in the street. The poor puppy was hanging out his tongue and panting. They are so much closer to the pavement that they overheat and they have no protection on their feet. I asked her to walk him in the grass and she thought I was crazy. Have mercy on the poor animals in this heat.
