WE NEED SOME serious help in Richmond County. Our commissioners, Board of Education and the sheriff’s office are disappointing. I just heard on the news more people have left Richmond to move to Columbia County. That does not surprise me? Deans Bridge Road, Peach Orchard, Mike Padgett and Gordon Highway areas are being ignored. Why? Because the mayor and commissioners want to improve downtown only.


WHY DO PEOPLE feel they must drive with a dog sitting in their lap? Yesterday I was nearly run off the road by a lady with a lab sitting up front with her. She was so busy trying to get him under control, she drifted into my lane. Someone is going to have a serious accident being distracted with dog sitting up front. Also when did it become OK to take dogs into stores? A few days ago I saw someone in Lowe’s with two golden retrievers. Can’t wait to see the lawsuit if someone gets bitten by a dog that shouldn’t be there in the first place.


RANT FOR ALVIN Mason, not a good choice for the position of mayor. Hoping people do not reward his arrogant attitude and history of domestic violence with a vote.


OUR VOTES FOR THE position of mayor must be taken seriously, and spent on a person that will work with and represent all Augustans. Helen Blocker-Adams is the only one on the ballot that has already proven that she is more interested in the future of Augusta and not just one segment of it.


MINIMUM WAGE hike would cut food stamp costs beyond Republicans’ dreams. This something Republicans should be on board.


HEY, HEPHZIBAH PD. We are glad to have you protecting our little town. But, a bit of citizen suggestion here. Quit sitting out on Highway 25 trying to be the State Patrol. We need you elsewhere. To the Hephzibah Bank. Hire a security professional. You need it.


TO BILL KIRBY: JUST remember, the definition of a gentleman is a man who can play the bagpipes, but doesn’t!


THE OBAMA FEEDBACK from his visit with the pope differs from that of the Vatican’s. Now whose version would you believe the one from Obama or the pope? Hint: If you like your plan you can keep your plan!
