THE LYDIA PROJECT is doing so much good work. The recent article in the paper highlights the addition of 10 bedrooms to be used by women who live 30 miles or more from Augusta while they are being treated for cancer in Augusta. The Lydia Project is also paying some bills for women facing cancer. Now, that’s an organization worthy of our support!
IT WAS REPORTED that Americans throw away more than a third of the food they buy, which is almost $400 a year per person. If you go into any of the buffets in town, you cannot help but notice how much food is wasted. Please act responsibly and take only food from the buffet that you can eat.
A HUGE RAVE to Bob Kerzner and the Augusta RiverHawks organization for handling the bad luck in a professional and responsible way. As opposed to the past ownership, you refunded all money due the fans who faithfully supported the team. I sincerely hope things work out for you with future ice hockey in this area.
COACH WILKINS WAS fired two years too late. Greenbrier High School would have had two championships by now. All I can say is, karma.
WE KNOW WHAT government-run health care will look like. A 10-year-old girl will be denied a lung transplant because federal regulations haven’t kept track with medical progress. Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, attempted to end the hopes of this child and her family with these chilling words: “Some people live; some people die.” Fortunately, a federal judge lifted Sebelius’ death sentence.
SEN. JOHN MCCAIN was noble and a hero for his actions during the Vietnam War. However, his attempts to get the U.S. involved in yet another conflict (Syria) that is none of our affair is, at best, insane.
I REMEMBER THAT in the 1970s we used to accuse Richard Nixon of trying to make himself king. Well, he had nothing on Obama.
LET’S THINK AUGUSTA Commission member Alvin Mason’s comments through. If Ed McIntyre had put his “gifts” into his election campaign committee, that would have made it legal?
