THE RCBE TAKING INTO consideration providing transportation to alternative school students with the cuts to education? Those students gave up their right for transportation when they did not follow rules of conduct. And now their parents want taxpayers to pay for the bus to pick their child up?
WHY IS SO MUCH MORE spent downtown than in the suburbs, when almost 60 percent of the property taxes come from the suburbs? The suburbs are being forced to supply money to an addict that has a spending problem.
RANT FOR LACK OF parking at the Ruffin Courthouse. The only option seemed to be across the railroad tracks in another paved lot! If you have to cross the railroad tracks a pedestrian walkway should be established.
WAY TO GO, Richmond School Board. Tossing away $241,000. What a foolish bunch of yahoos you are. We need to get you people replaced.
WHY DO AT LEAST a quarter of all Richmond County jail inmates have personal cellphones? Does “security” even try to stop it anymore?
IN RESPONSE TO the person who stated that North Augusta does not want the stadium. SPEAK FOR YOURSELF (riverfront property owner). You do not represent most of North Augusta who does want the stadium!
THANK GOD WE have at least one wise commissioner. Donnie Smith, thank you for speaking with much intelligence. You’re appreciated.
RANT TO THE sheriff’s deputy who continues to drive erratically on Boy Scout Road. I noticed him passing a delivery truck on a double yellow line going into a curve. Talk about dangerous drivers.
IT SOUNDS LIKE SOME of these students need to walk to school. Get creative, parents. Make car pools. Get your children there; you can find a way. Exercise will do the kids good. They are being punished for a reason. The buses are a privilege. Walking a little bit is not going to hurt them.
WHY DOESN’T COMCAST keep the employees being laid off at the Augusta call center and lay off the employees at the call center in the Philippines?
SEAN RULES THE comments with an iron fist. What about our freedom of speech?
