Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:



IT’S THE REPUBLICANS who have no common sense at all. They only have the instincts to push for themselves and anyone with more than a million dollars.


DEAR BUSINESS owners: If you are careless about using proper punctuation/grammar/spelling in your ads and street signs, I wonder how much you really care about other aspects of your business and my patronage?


PRESIDENT OBAMA IN his television address to the nation on the Affordable Care Act stated that most Americans can be covered for $100 or less. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t that a downright lie?


COLUMBIA COUNTY Water Department is unreal. They now employ two people to read water meters. One to touch the wand on the meter cover, and one to drive the golf cart. What a waste of resources!


A RANT FOR tailgaters. The law states that you should leave at least one car length for every 10 miles per hour you are traveling. You riding my bumper will not make me close that gap. I refuse to break the law and endanger myself and other innocent drivers. Slow down, people.


THANK YOU, THANK you, thank you to The Augusta Chronicle’s Pardon Our Mess. You got our ditch out here on Cherry Road cleaned up in two weeks that we have been trying to get cleaned up for the past three years. Great job! We really appreciate your getting the job done for us and also the ones who did it. Thanks to all.


I HAVE (HAPPILY) lived in McDuffie County for 15-plus years, have had once-a-week trash pickup all that time and have not had a problem; everything has worked just fine.


RAVE FOR THE Goldberg Dental Group. Drs. Stephen and Adam Goldberg and staff should be called Goldberg “Family” Dental Group because they treat their patients like family in addition to great dental care.


RAVES FOR NURSES, especially Sharlotte Schillings, R.N., in the Endoscopy Department at Doctors Hospital.


I AM SURE that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was influenced by President Obama’s response to the Syria chemical attack that prompted him to state regarding the Iranian nuclear threat: “If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone.” Netanyahu is not going to stand in the background whimpering but will take care of the problem.
