APPARENTLY, WE’RE supposed to be angrier about what Mitt Romney does with his money than what Obama does with ours.


I REMEMBER WHEN I was driving my Jeep up and down the levee in the late ‘70s, early ‘80s. We had the prettiest place in the CSRA. Now can we quit giving the better entertainment and growth to Aiken and Columbia counties? If commissioners, senators, congressmen, etc. only had 4- to 8-year terms like the president. What a different place this country would be!!!! Think about it!!


HAVE TO SAY I’M rather unimpressed with the crop of candidates running for the Augusta Commission thus far, especially in District 1. Will someone please tell Willie Mays to jump in that race? He would win in a landslide and would be a leader again on the commission. The batch running now just doesn’t have what it takes.


THE SLOGAN FOR the Obama re-election campaign is “FORWARD.” I think this theme signifies being positive and moving ahead to tackle all the problems facing the American people. For the past 3 1/2 years the Obama administration has only moved backwards in the wrong direction. Time to put it in reverse and turn around and head “FORWARD” in the right direction.


THE RICHMOND COUNTY school board is meeting to discuss personnel matters. When it involves our tax dollars, it is a lot more than personnel. How about the public’s business?


RANT TO THE VA hospital. In all of my 75 years, I have never experienced such a bad, bad telephone system.


AS THE SMELL FROM the trash Dumpsters at the post office on Peach Orchard Road permeates the air, it reminds me of one simple truth: I must get out of Richmond County, Land of the Lost.


I WISH DEKE Copenhaver would stop talking about relocating the stadium to downtown. They need to bring some department stores and drug stores back downtown and leave the stadium where it is at.


RANT FOR college students who do not know how to cross the street. First you look to your left, then to your right, and then you cross.


REMEMBER TO check your bill at University Hospital. You are paying for that blue cup of ice.
