Rants & Raves

ABOUT THE 4-H staffer who was found not guilty of molestation: The whole case sounded like a modern-day witch trial. A troubled kid with wild accusations and a person’s life ruined. Well, at least they won’t burn the defendant at the stake.



I HAVE BEEN missing the Sego Middle School crossing guards on Peach Orchard. They did a great job.


I FIND IT TOTALLY ridiculous that the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office does not help the citizens of their community. I would think that if someone had a dead battery that you could extend a little courtesy to jump them off. I thought that their oath was to “protect and serve”... I guess not. However, I would like to give a shout out to Columbia County for always helping out their citizens in an efficient manner and still managing to have kind words and smile to offer.


THE DECLINE in violent crime is directly proportional to the rise in concealed weapons permits. Might be a cause and effect; might not.


I WOULD LIKE to thank the woman and her family at Fatz who paid for our lunch. I will pass it on. May God bless you and thank you very much.


MY NEW MOTTO for all these politicians who are causing me to lose everything that I have worked a lifetime for: “If you are in, you are out.”


IT APPEARS that our government has forgotten who they work for. They work for us, the people, not themselves. Maybe they need to remember that and either get past themselves or get out of office.


THIS IS A rave to the guys that helped me change two of my tires at the Circle K on the corner of Belair and Cox roads in Evans. It really meant a lot to me. I didn’t get your names, but I really do appreciate it. My faith in humanity has been restored. Or at least my faith in local people.


RANT FOR THE women complaining that their food stamps have been cut back. They should cut them back more. The baby daddies should be supporting the babies, not the hardworking, tax-paying citizens of America. Cut your cellphones off, too. Trade your Escalade in for a Ford or Chevy.


THE HEADLINE in the paper states that “Nearly 1,000 Iraqis killed in September.” We really have left a mess over there. Don’t tell me that the war was worth it and our mission was a success.
