Rants & Raves

Comments from our readers:


THIS IS FOR Blue Ridge Ele­mentary car riders loading at 3:30. Why don’t you load two lanes at once? You could load 18 cars at one time the way we do it at Martinez Elementary. Thanks to our new principal, Mr. White, it takes no time at all.


A LETTER WRITER mentions “... the now-defunct global warming argument ... .” Global warming is a fact. This finding is recognized by the national science academies of all the major industrialized countries and is not disputed by any scientific body of national or international standing. Tea party people seem to live in an imaginary world.


AS A MAN OF FAITH, I always try to look on the bright side when I look around and I see what is happening now. Our country is going in the wrong direction, and I don’t see what is going to stop it. I pray every day because I have daughters who I’ve raised and educated and I want them to be successful. When I look around it is just depressing.


IF JASON HEYWARD really wants to help the Atlanta Braves, he needs to go play for the Philadelphia Phillies.


THE WJBF ANCHORWOMAN who laughed her way through a very serious story needs to find another line of work.


WHEN ARE THEY going to close the Peach Orchard Postal Service branch? From my understanding, the entire Postal Service is in dire straits, but this one needs to be closed early. It is a biohazard. It is an EPA nightmare with the stench of the trash bins that are lining the parking lot where Subway restaurant is.


IF YOU PERSIST and remove the daily TV guide from your “newspaper” I will be forced to cancel the subscription I have had since moving to Augusta. Please keep it in; as it is one of the nice things I can read over morning coffee. Hope the rest of the town agrees with me.


THE INTENTIONAL sneaky Saturday delivery of our annual property tax bill is almost here again. Because of upcoming USPS delivery changes, this may be the last Saturday tax bill delivery perpetrated on us by our tax office .


I HAVE A RANT about Georgia outclassing the other team. I think they had better look at those hideous Power Ranger uniforms that coach Richt allowed them to wear before they start making comments about other teams. You need to look in your own backyard before they start making comments.


RANT TO THE Georgia Bulldog uniforms last Saturday night. They were awful. Goodbye, coach Richt. No discipline leads to failure.


A RANT TO THE Richmond County jail phone system with money grams. You can overspend on the courthouse, but us taxpayers have to buy money grams to talk to loved ones. No wonder Augusta is broke.
