Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:



WHAT TEACHER IN Richmond County feels any allegiance and plans to come in on a Saturday to teach? Our contracts aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. They don’t state our salaries or the number of days we have to work. Come on, Pete Fletcher, get ready for more lawsuits. If you have no teachers next year, you won’t have to worry about your darn budget, will you?


A RANT TO DEKE Copenhaver and Mayors Against Illegal Guns for trying to stop HB 875. I don’t know if Copenhaver is still an active member, but this bill is a good step for Georgia gun owners and he should be ashamed to have his name on record for an organization whose end game is confiscation.


RANT TO THE department that handles the red lights on Washington Road. It is not Masters Week yet! Why are you changing the lights already? You are creating traffic for people trying to get to work. My usual travel time on Washington Road at 7:30 in the morning of five minutes now takes 20 in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Please change them back until we get closer to Masters. It is still a month away.


KAY ALLEN RESIGNS. Will she be charged with stealing funds from taxpayers of Columbia County and tried in court or nothing is to be done? We smell a rat. My opinion is that Columbia County government as a whole needs to be investigated, starting with Ron Cross. I am sure others agree. It does not stop there.


RANT TO THE PARENTS of the youths who do not respect their neighbor’s property in Country Place. These youths walk, ride their bikes and play in neighbors’ yards. They are disrespectful and need to be taught respect by their parents. Parents, do you know what your kids are doing and where you kids are?


A BIG RANT FOR Ron Cross and the Columbia County Commission and the brave district attorney. They are allowing Kay Allen to resign and get away with theft.


ANOTHER RANT FOR the people who do not know how to drive. The white and yellow lines that are painted on the streets have meaning. Solid lines mean do not switch lanes or pass. You probably haven’t noticed the lines because you were too busy speeding, tailgating and texting.


RANT FOR THE GUY who put his old toilet in with the storm debris. They are not there to pick that up. Take it to the dump yourself.
