THIS IS A RAVE for some of the clinics at Fort Gordon’s Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center: EENT clinic works like clockwork. Very smooth operation. Immunization clinic, the LPN who gave me a shingles shot was near painless as you can get.
REGARDING THE “visceral reaction” of Augustans to the use of the word “slum” to describe downtown Augusta: I say, the shoe fits pretty good. As for the mayor’s and commissioners’ responses, those are predictable, seeing as how the mayor seems to show up only for favorable photo ops and the commissioners are, once again, clueless as to anything other than their own selfish, greedy, narcissistic concerns.
RANT TO ALL tailgaters. Don’t be getting mad at me. Take you(r) frustration out on the police. I didn’t make the speed limit. I just go as fast as the law allows.
I’M SICK AND TIRED of the news. I don’t watch it any more except for the weather. They lie about Syria. I turn the president off.
IF AUGUSTA IS a slum, we taxpayers sure do pay enough to keep it that way.
ALL AUGUSTA Commission members should resign; none of them is interested in Augusta. All they are interested in is getting their pictures in the paper and going to those conventions free on taxpayers money.
WE DO NOT need to get into Syria. The president is wrong, wrong, wrong.
POLITICIANS HAVE reached the point where they admit that they lie in order to get something. Augusta politicians are willing to call a non-slum area a “slum” so that they, the politicians, will end up with even more tax money to then waste.
HOW CAN OUR city officials defraud the state government by saying Augusta is a slum and then come in the newspaper and say it is not? They are just saying that to get the money. Isn’t that fraud?
THE SRP FEDERAL Credit Union will begin charging $1 for their customers to receive their monthly statement? They used to give their members benefits not available from banks. This credit union is making more money and (has) nothing to spend it on except building more branches. They have to know that many older members don’t even use the Internet?
