Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:



YOU KNOW THE WORLD is going to hell in a handbasket when the pope quits!


ROUNDTREE AND MCINTYRE mostly likely knew what the salary was before they ran for office. It’s been so many years, I can’t even remember when state employees got a raise.


IT’S SCARY TO THINK a greater number of people are living off government welfare programs than are paying taxes!


WHEN WILL PEOPLE realize pit bulls are a dangerous animal and need to be controlled at all times?


A BIG RAVE TO Hammond Hill Animal Hospital. Dr. Norman and Karen, you went above and beyond to help us save our puppy. Thank you so much. Bella sends lots of licks!


RANT TO THE JUDGES and laws that favor tenants no matter how much money they owe or how much property they have destroyed. A lot of us have become “involuntary landlords” due to the housing market. Landlords are struggling, too


ISN’T IT JUST LIKE a Republican to put in a motion to protect certain hurtful monuments instead of working on the nitty-gritty stuff like the budget?


RAVE FOR OFFICER Ronnie Phillips for his assistance in recovering my stolen wallet. I was astounded when he called to say he would drive out and deliver it to me. I am sure it was not the most exciting duty of his day but his concern, courtesy and professionalism meant a great deal to me and my mother.


PAINE COLLEGE IS cash-strapped and wants to start a football program. All they need to do is schedule a game with UGA. Paine gets the money needed to start up their program and UGA fans are happy that their Dawgs get another easy win.


I JUST WANT TO thank the lady who paid for my medicine at Rite Aid on Wheeler Road. I had the money at home, but was so sick that morning that I just didn’t think to carry it with me; I will pass the favor on.


HEY, COMMISSIONERS, stop whining. Commission meetings last as long as it takes to take care of business! You were elected to be a commissioner, not just a pretty face! If it takes six hours instead of two, well so what?


WOMEN IN COMBAT? Careful what you wish for.
