Rants & Raves

WHO IS THE idiot who made the decision to shut down the main Washington Road corridor in Evans from 8 to 10 a.m. on a Saturday in December for a road race? Way to support our Evans small businesses.

 

MANY DESERVED raves to the nice folks out in Blythe. Your library fundraiser, Taste of Blythe, had area cooks and restaurants shining. To the ladies serving, you made it even more special.

 

CONGRATULATIONS to Kathleen O’Brien in her fantastic achievement of so much weight reduction. She went from 629 pounds to 243 pounds. What’s amazing is that she was able to achieve the reduction without having gastric bypass surgery. Kathleen, you are such an inspiration to others.

 

KUDOS TO ALL those who braved the rain to protest against Georgia Regents University for using dogs for unnecessary dental experiments. I wonder, where is President Ricardo Azziz in all of this? I have not seen him making any statement on the matter, so I am assuming he has distanced himself effectively from the mess.

 

ISN’T THERE some­thing incongruous about NPR playing Christmas music?

 

OBAMACARE WONT work without young people buying in, but young people are covered by their parents’ policies. Thus, those young people will not join Obamacare, so it strangles itself.

 

A HUGE RAVE and thank you to the gentleman who handed out blessings at the Deans Bridge Road Wal-Mart on a Tuesday evening. I watched the faces of those you blessed, and it was an awesome sight. Shock, confusion and finally realization of what just happened, but by then you had left the area and were blessing others. You touched many people in an amazing way. May God bless you each day, and merry Christmas.

 

MANY THANKS to Augusta Waterworks for changing the billing cycle. Everyone’s bill is two months in arrears. Look at the dates on your bill. We all were getting a free ride on one month’s value of water. I do not want the waterworks to have to borrow money to operate when everyone actually owes for two months of water. Change the billing cycle and collect the past-due amount.
