THIS IS A RAVE FOR Rick McKee. He made it on the national stage with one of his wonderful cartoons published in USA Today. So as much as we love him, the nation loves him.
THIS IS NEITHER a rant nor a rave, but I’ve got a great idea. They ought to turn Kmart in West Town into a Hamrick’s like the one they have in North Augusta.
WHEN WE ACCIDENTALLY kill Afghans, the whole country over there goes ape. But when their police officers, sworn police officers, shoot and kill Americans, they don’t even offer an apology. Something is wrong. Mr. President, get us out of there immediately.
DON’T WORRY, AUGUSTA. Our great God is in control. We don’t like GRU, but it is happening for a reason, Dr. Azziz is here for a reason, and Roundtree might be our next sheriff for a reason. Honestly, we should be excited for big things in the future for this little river town.
I WAS DRIVING ON Gibbs Road and crossing Hereford Farm Road when my car broke down. I was stuck in the middle of the road when a wonderful man who was with his wife and children stopped to push and help me off the road. He said he would not leave me alone until someone came. We all thanked him, but I wish I had asked his name so at least I could do a little something for him. He was just amazing. I hope he will see this.
RANTS TO THE Richmond County Board of Education. You obviously do not know your student population.
RANTS TO RICHMOND County school board member Frank Dolan, who wants to blame the teachers for Richmond County’s low test scores. The majority of your staffers graduated from hometown high schools and colleges. They are the product of local education. The board shies away from hiring teachers from out of state – they would not put up with the foolishness that goes on here.
I WISH THE Department of Natural Resources would patrol the Savannah River on weekends. People on personal watercraft and wakeboards ignore the boat ramp wake zones and marina wake zones. They are a hazard.
WHY CAN’T 20 TO 30 people win the lottery instead of only one or two? It seems like a scam to me. It seems like a huge computer waits until after the drawing before it picks one winner. Who is to know?
