Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:


A BIG THANK YOU to Cushman’s Paint and Body on Washington Road. While I was driving down Washington Road, something took a chunk out of my rear tire, causing me to have a flat. I was fortunate enough to be right at the entrance to Cushman’s driveway. I pulled in and asked if they would be kind enough to help me change my tire. They provided me with two gentlemen from their shop to change my tire and get me back on the road. I offered to pay; their comment to me was “No charge, be safe.”

RAVES TO THE Augusta Historical Museum. My husband and I paid a visit and it was wonderful. We learn a lot about the Augusta area we didn’t know, and the displays are great. Well worth the $4 admission.

A HUGE RAVE TO Jefferson EMC for restoring my power after the storm on Middleground Road May 31. Fast and efficient.

RAVES TO The Augusta Chronicle. I love your new Sunday section Opinion. Editorials, Letters to the Editor and Rants & Raves are my favorite sections.

HOW DO WE KEEP electing big spenders of our money who seem to be oblivious of the choice of cutting spending rather than taxing more?

ONLY THE FEDERAL government could take 147 years to find the doctor’s report on Abe Lincoln’s shooting.

WISCONSIN VOTERS stomped on Obama and labor union bosses something awful in the recall election. Wow.

THE U.S. TERMINATED “funding for a $20 million” Sesame Street show in Pakistan? What kind of idiotic politicians came up with such an absurd and wasteful idea in the first place?

A RANT TO THE woman dining at a restaurant June 3. You had a crying fit because you felt you waited too long for your main course on your anniversary and insisted on free food. I sat close to you and know you were wrong. Didn’t you want to spend time with your husband, or was it all about free food?

THIS IS A RAVE TO the security at the gates at Fort Gordon. I have seen time after time when some loud clown deserved a head-to-toe nightstick massage and TASER tickle but they remained professional and always welcome everyone to the post with a smile.

TO THE PERSON hunting sauerkraut in the jar: They have it at the Bi-Lo in Southgate in two sizes. I hope you enjoy it.
