Rants & Raves

COLUMBIA COUNTY ENFORCEMENT: Why can’t something be done in Martinez about small businesses parking their company trailers on property for the sole purpose of free storage and advertising? Most of these companies are from out of Georgia. They are turning our community into a dumping ground. If they need to do this, do it legally.



SOME PEOPLE SHOULD take life as seriously as they take their Air Jordans.


AUGUSTA BREEDS NONPROFITS while North Augusta builds its riverfront.


HAS A “NUT CASE” ever shot up a police station?


DO NOT BE DECEIVED. This current oppressive regime in the White House is not offering any spending cuts. They are not offering not to spend as much as they had originally planned. They aren’t offering to actually reduce what they are spending now.


HENRY FORD ONCE said, “Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.”


HUGE RAVE TO Ms. Braswell, PTO Council President! She is exactly right about salaries of RCBOE Central Office positions. There are millions of dollars spent on these people that NEVER see a student and do little to impact student learning. This is where the cuts and furloughs need to be, NOT to the classroom teacher. Two furlough days for central office personnel for every one given to a classroom teacher would be a good starting point.


TO ALL THE charitable do-good organizations that provide free meals to the man that has nine children and the woman that has seven children, you need to provide them with birth control options instead of freeloading.


WANTED TO RAVE for a couple that showed true Christmas spirit at the “Lights of the South.” I had my three grandchildren and my daughter from Fort Hood here during the holidays and decided to take them all to see the lights. I was not aware that they only take cash. I was waiting in line to purchase tickets to see the Christmas tree maze and realized that they only take cash. The couple behind me insisted on paying our way! This act of kindness really touched my heart and renewed my faith in humanity again! What a true act of kindness! Thanks again!
