Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

 

 

RANT TO THE “gentlemen” in the IGA parking lot on Deans Bridge Road who watched as my daughter and I changed her flat tire. Although I am not by any means a helpless woman, it would have been nice to have a little assistance instead of an audience.

 

I SURE HOPE I don’t turn left into an intersection where one ranter considers looking left when making a right-hand turn a waste of time.

 

LAST YEAR, EVERYTHING at the library’s block party was free! This year $6 for chicken, $2 for water and $3 for ice cream. My kids and I were disappointed.

 

TO THE MEDICAL transporter getting tickets: If you transport my loved ones in a dangerous way where you deserve the ticket, you will get more from me than just a ticket. Watch your driving or stop doing medical transporting!

 

THE PAST FEW YEARS have been tough for a lot of us. Meanwhile, the IRS has been whooping it up on 220 shameless conferences to the tune of $50 million during that period. All of this funded by our money, of course.

 

A HEARTFELT RAVE to the woman who won money on a lottery ticket at the Food Lion on Columbia Road last week. Our volunteer for Columbia County Animal Services was posting fliers about our overload of kittens for adoption. This kind lady thanked her for what she was doing and left the store. She returned to explain that she was allergic to cats but wanted to donate her winnings to pay for the next kitten adopted. Because of her generosity a homeless kitten now has a loving home and she has our sincere thanks.

 

I’M A TEACHER IN Richmond County and if I got in half the trouble Dr. Frazier got into I wouldn’t have a job. If the school board brings him back for the 2013-14 school year then every school board member should be voted out.

 

COLUMBIA COUNTY IS the richest county but the school system always cuts the jobs of poor people and blacks. Why can’t they cut white-collar jobs? The schools need to be clean for our kids and you need custodians to do it.

 

WHY DO PEOPLE get those huge trucks if they aren’t able to properly park them … or drive them, for that matter?

 

BRING BACK COACH Wilkins? Don’t feel bad. The Josey coaches were fired, too. I am one of them.
