BEFORE MOVING HERE, I was told that Georgia was “retirement friendly.” After moving here I find that Georgia taxes pensions (Illinois did not), utility rates are higher, sales tax is 8 percent and when I went today to get plates for my minivan that I brought with me I was told that it would cost $1,254. I will encourage anyone I know at this point not to move to Georgia.
THIS IS A RAVE to the McDonald’s on Furys Ferry. Victoria and her team run a very tight ship. Whenever you go in there you don’t see employees ignoring the customers and talking to each other instead of taking orders. The store is clean and EVERYONE is friendly!!
THUNDER OVER AUGUSTA has to be the best community event ever!
RAVES TO DEANGELA at CVS on Wrightsboro Road. She is the most helpful employee I have ever come across in that CVS. She went above and beyond.
TO THE PERSON WHO commented on South Carolina voters asking what they were doing, don’t you think you ought to clean up your own back yard before you start commenting on your neighbors? We could ask the same about Georgia voters.
OBAMA AND HIS GANG are making Nixon and his gang look like rank amateurs. The GOP better get some gutsy Teddy Roosevelt-type leaders to fix bayonets and fight back – or the U.S. will go the way of the Dodo bird.
JENNY SANFORD’S plan to derail her ex’s election blew up in her face. GO MARK!
SCUM IS COLORLESS!!! It shouldn’t matter the color of the commentator. The only thing that matters is the seriousness of the crime.
NOW, TELL ME EXACTLY why we need an African American book club at our public library? This is so backwards thinking, racist and exclusive. Will we have a Caucasian book club, a Hispanic book club? After all this is a public-funded operation.
THE RICHMOND COUNTY Board of Education plans to spend $78,000 each year for a tool to determine the best candidates for teaching and administrative positions. This is such a waste of money. Barbara Pulliam is right, this should have been the last item on the “wants” list. Maybe there should be firings of those people who do the hiring if they can’t handle the job.
