Rants & Raves

ISRAELI PRIME Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is right when he says we need to take a tough stance when dealing with Iran. We need to learn from the past. Look at how far they have come with their nuclear program since our previous “negotiations” with them. They just can’t be trusted. What I am afraid of is that President Obama will be conned into giving something for nothing. He will just act to make himself look good.



RANT FOR North Augusta Parks and Recreation football. The management, along with the officiating, is absolutely atrocious. Many of the coaches do not follow the rules and put wins over player safety, while the NAPR does nothing. I want to thank my grandson’s coach Rob for sticking up for the safety of his players and teaching his boys the correct way to play.


I FEEL SORRY for the people who want to sell their homes and move from Richmond County. They are being held hostage because there are no buyers who want to live here, either.


JUST BECAUSE you don’t have insurance doesn’t mean you’re looking for a handout and are black. My job was eliminated, which eliminated my insurance. I work 40 hours a week with no benefits and make less at my current job. Don’t judge another person by what’s in your wallet or what kind of car you have or how long you’ve been on your job. Big corporations can and will take away your lifestyle and anytime. By the way, I’m white.


I WANTED TO thank the kind-hearted lady in the silver Ford Explorer who paid for my husband and me at Starbucks. My husband had just had another procedure at University Hospital for his many health problems, so you really made our day. I’ll surely pay this forward.


RANTS TO the river property owners who continue to claim North Augusta residents are against Project Jackson, overtaxed (North Augusta taxes are the lowest I have ever paid), and being plotted against by this wonderful project. Sometimes it is hard for the financially blessed to realize that their world includes everyone. Stop your whining!


APPARENTLY 3,000 people participated in the Great Bull Run in Conyers, Ga., recently. I am afraid my sympathy is with the bulls that have to put up with a bunch of idiots running alongside waiting to get hurt. I just hope that none of the bulls got hurt.
