RANT FOR commissioners going out of town and spending $8,000. You need to stay here and take care of business and stop going on these junkets because they are doing nothing to improve the quality of life in Augusta. It is a waste of time and money.
AUGUSTA AND Harlem, before you spank your kids, get the alcohol, drugs and violence out of your house. Don’t punish your kids for what you do.
ALL YOU movie-makers, leave the old movies alone. When you remake those movies, you destroy them.
SOMETHING SHOULD be done about setting Scott Dean free. It is wrong to keep him in jail because of the tales this girl told.
TWO WEEKS AGO I left my purse in a cart at Wal-Mart. When I returned to the store, this gracious lady had turned it in. I am so grateful there are honest people in this city. Thank you very much.
ALL PEOPLE ON food stamps, please read the letter from Bobby Ross in The Chronicle. All you women and men on food stamps need to get to work and get off food stamps. Those who have worked all our lives are just helping you have extra children. Go to work.
WHEN WILL WE realize that Azziz was sent here to destroy Augusta? When will you wake up and get rid of him.
I WAS REAL surprised about the people left in Cherry Tree. One woman said she never intended it to be permanent, but she had been there 11 years. I don’t know what she considers permanent. Wherever they go, you can bet they will have the same problems wherever they go.
FOLLOWING THE example of Europe, one by one, countries in the Americas outlawed slavery in the second half of the 19th century, most without a war. Why does the South have to shoulder worldwide blame for having slaves when South and Central America and the Caribbean Islands also had slavery and discrimination?
A NEWS ARTICLE stated, “The city leaders of Augusta are going out of town ...” The terms “city leaders” and “Augusta” should not be used in the same document!
SO WHAT IF GM doesn’t like the terms of its stock deal with the government? The Treasury should not be selling GM stock at a loss! This is another sweetheart deal that Obama made with his cronies that is costing us, the taxpayers.
