RANTS TO THE Riverwalk keepers. Having moved here five years ago, I have walked the riverwalk most all holidays and taken many visitors there. However, this past weekend the riverwalk was an embarrassment with lots of weeds, dead bushes, bushes in need of trimming, and leaves and grass clippings on walkways. Fortunately, the grass was cut and there really wasn’t paper trash around, but the general appearance was the worst I’ve seen it.
How sad to neglect this most valuable resource and probably our best accessible tourist attraction.
THE TRIAL OF ROGER Clemens just ended. How many millions of taxpayer money was wasted on this trial of a baseball player who lied to Congress, and when will we, the American taxpayers, get the chance to take Congress to trial for lying to us, the American people?
YOUR PAGE 2A “This Day in History” feature can find an anniversary of some Nixon-Watergate aberration to call to our attention almost every day but never seems to notice Bill Clinton’s shenanigans?
RANTS FOR THE person who said Taylor Swift needs to get over herself. That person needs to get a life of their own and stop being jealous.
THE ONLY REASON Fred Luter was elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention was for political reasons. Anybody can put two and two together to see that.
CONGRATULATIONS, Shawn at Dillard’s Augusta Mall, for your new promotion as store manager! Long time awaited, but well-deserved.
I AM APPALLED at how bad the plant beds look at the Augusta municipal building. Weeds growing everywhere. I can’t believe that the city administrator or any of the commissioners care.
RANTS TO the Augusta Fire Department engines. Please come to a complete stop at controlled intersections while responding to an emergency.
PAINE COLLEGE SAYS It’s a private organization, but if 905 of students get federal assistance, who’s really controlling things?
THIS IS A RAVE for the Columbia County Tax Assessors Office. They valued my boat 9 percent more this year. I’ll use it for the next 10 years, then sell it to them and buy a yacht. I’ve never had a boat or vehicle increase in value every year.
