Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

 

 

GREAT JOB, AUGUSTA! The GreenJackets want to move across the river, and now you’ve screwed us out of Hawks hockey! The powers that be need to go. It’s no wonder downtown is going down the toilet.

 

MEN NEED TO MARRY the mother of their children!

 

I VOTED FOR SANFORD. You can’t help who you love. And Jenny looks like a real piece of work.

 

ENTERTAINER CHRIS BROWN’S plane had to return to the airport because of smoke in the cabin? Oh, come on! What’s a little smoke amongst rap stars?

 

HEY, SHERIFF, PUT YOUR deputies where they are needed. Not stopping people going back and forth to work.

 

TWO DEPUTIES PATROLLING downtown? Two? Are you crazy? You need 10 or more for that crowd.

 

SECURITY CAMERAS ONLY take pictures of crime. It stops nothing.

 

ANY INSTRUCTOR WHO does not submit student grades before graduation day should be fired!

 

WHY DID AUGUSTA COMMISSIONERS go on a retreat to discuss county business? What is wrong with the new courthouse? It is no wonder Richmond County is in a bad financial state.

 

A BIG RANT TO the person who selects the items placed in the paper. When someone sends in a rant or rave, it should be placed in the paper and not just a select few.

 

RANT TO THE CITY OF Augusta for planting trees on Battle Row. The trees will grow up into the power lines.

 

HAVE SOME OF THOSE overweight policemen and women walk a beat. It would kill two birds with one stone: Crime in downtown Augusta and obesity in the Richmond County Sheriff’s Depart­ment.

 

CAMERAS ON THE STREETS downtown? It won’t deter the crime. It might record it, but it won’t deter it.

 

RANT FOR LETTING A senior appear in the yearbook holding a rifle in a sniper pose. It is appalling, especially after Sandy Hook.

 

AS THE GOOD REV. Jeramiah Wright would say: “Looks like Obama’s amateur hour chickens have come home to roost!”
