IF WE CONTINUE TO be PC like the TSA, we will continue to have problems downtown.
DUH – DO we think there might be a correlation??? Columbia County shows respect for education by balancing the budget without requiring furlough days for students and teachers AND their schools surpassed state averages across the board. Then, we have Richmond County’s plan to shorten the school year by three weeks in the hopes this will allow them to budget for their top-heavy administrators. According to Superintendent Frank Roberson, a shorter school year will not have any effect on student performance. Of course, Richmond County schools lagged well below state averages and are once again at the bottom.
WHO IN THE WORLD wants a man like Wayne Frazier to be over their children? Wayne Frazier has cases pending against him. The only people that would want him are those that like drama! I’m sure the staff does not want him back the way he treated them.
TO THE PERSON ALWAYS complaining about the mayor of Blythe. Now, is it the sidewalks, the library, which is it? Really, are you a sore loser? Ask not what the mayor all by herself and no one else on city council can do for you. What do you really want? What can you do for Blythe other than complain in Rants & Raves?
IN LIGHT OF ALL all the recent violent attacks in downtown Augusta, where are the police officers to keep the peace? At least it’s good to know that “Rolling Thunder” is bringing in some revenue for Richmond County
AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF, Obama can put a stop to the rape of women in the armed forces right now. What we need is a protective avenue for women to report the abuse and once reported swift action needs to take place. It’s disgusting to find that this epidemic is allowed to happen with little or no consequences. Please stop talking about it and take strong action!
HOW MANY MORE companies and associations are going to be ripped off big time by criminals like Laurie Wainwright Vanover. Her take was a whopping $267,663.08. That’s not small change! Simple steps need to be taken (e.g. audits) to prevent such occurrences elsewhere. Let’s make it harder for these criminals to succeed.
