I DON’T KNOW OF any job where people can run for it, get it, then claim they need more money. And Marion Williams says Sheriff Roundtree and Kellie McIntyre can sue if they don’t get their raises? Cite the law.
RANT FOR THE sheriff and solicitor. You haven’t even been in office long enough for a job performance review yet. If you didn’t like the salary, why did you run for office? Shame on all you greedy fools!
THE PRINCIPAL OF Butler High should be fired for allowing the lady to come into his school and then commit fraud against his students.
RANT TO THE LITTLE Girl Scout that came to my door over a month ago. Hey, where are my three boxes of cookies that I paid you for?
IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE Butler High students were conned by Erica Jones and her DRBJ Legacy Foundation organization. They are lucky they were not left stranded someplace. It’s not fair on the kids.
IT’S TIME FOR Sylvia Cooper to retire again. She seems to have lost her mojo and her column just is not as interesting as it used to be.
I HAVE A RANT FOR employers in Augusta. I have two children in college, one of whom has to be in school four days a week all day. These employers don’t care that they are going to school to make a better life for themselves and working to pay their bills. Give tthem a break and don’t schedule mandatory meetings during the weekday and threaten them if they can’t be there. Do it at night or on the weekends.
YAY TO THE CLOSURE of KFCs! Less totally unhealthy foods around to tempt people. Make sure to sub in only more healthy food businesses into those areas.
RANT FOR THE Hammond’s Ferry residents using scare tactics to stop the GreenJackets from building a stadium in North Augusta. You are the reason businesses don’t come to North Augusta, not the leadership of the city.
