A BIG RANT TO the Richmond County Board of Education for allowing thugs and criminals to ruin life for other students while not allowing teachers or principals to discipline them. They can curse, threaten and disrespect teachers because there are no serious consequences. Most of the time, the teacher is put on trial. I wonder what would happen if I disrespected my principal? I would be fired; yet these thugs are allowed to run these schools. Quit wasting money on tribunals; let your principals quit serving as puppets and place the fear of God in these students.
THIS IS A RANT to an un-American person who has stolen three of my American flags off my Appling property. If you wanted a flag so bad, all you had to do is ask and I would have bought you one as long as you honored it ... wait, that’s a stupid thought. Anybody who would steal an American flag has no honor or respect for this great country.
BLANCA AND HUGO Diaz brazenly operated in plain sight but were never thought of as illegal immigrants. This is hard to believe with all the goings-on at their $1.7 million home and their business dealings. There should be no jail time for them, let’s deport them — now.
WHAT’S UP? Fire Chief Hanley suspended for looking at what every other firefighter looks at (I have seen it myself.) He is 70-plus years old. Let the man retire with full benefits, and go after the other guys who need to be looked at. Come on, Augusta; let’s get real.
THANK YOU TO Westside baseball players for the fight of a lifetime in your baseball uniforms. Thanks to the YouTube video, you have both shown what great baseball players you are and what sportsmanship is all about. I sure hope Westside throws your butts off the team because this is definitely not how teammates act. Westside should show more pride.
RANT TO ALL schools that did not observe Black History Month with any programs.
THE AUGUSTA Commission has hired another “expert” to do its jobs for it. Why not just elect an expert?
I WANT TO THANK Washington Road Krispy Kreme for helping the youths at Crawford Avenue Baptist Church with their fundraiser. God will bless you.
