IF PROJECT JACKSON is developed along the Savannah River, it will be another sad story. Think smart, North Augusta. Maintain the uniqueness of the river and its history and future residents will be proud to call North Augusta a “really nice place.”


WHY DO PEOPLE assume that every legally bought gun will magically work in the hands of the owner? Notice all those guns so easily stolen from homes of gun owners? Who can guarantee that gun toters can use them against crooks without having the gun taken away as an extra weapon for the crooks?


THE REALITY OF Republi­cans is that they are not for real working people. They have ideas that most people are lazy good-for-nothings who don’t deserve help. They also decide that they can live and work in America but keep most all the taxes away (Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Switzerland). So, naturally most hardworking, taxpaying people properly support Democrats to figure out better ways for most Americans.


THOSE WHO COMPLAINED about too many of our soldiers were being killed and maimed in wars should not wish to jump back into Iraq again.


RIVER WATCH PARKWAY is a race-car circuit, and everyone but the would-be NASCAR drivers in Columbia County should be in the right lane. The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office has delegated this a “do not patrol” zone like most routes from Columbia County through Richmond County during rush hour. Heaven forbid someone from another county should get a ticket for speeding.


WHAT IS THIS WORLD coming to when someone who sexually bothers our children can get out in two years and not be listed as a sex offender?


THE WHITE HOUSE IS rushing down a bucket of whitewash to the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl investigation to make sure that it comes out in their favor. I hope I am wrong but I can see this deserter getting off scot-free.


WHEN WE BEAR witness to tragedy we need to be cognizant of the gory details we add on social media. A prime example is the lady who lost her life in the wreck on Peach Orchard. Some witnesses, wanting their five minutes of fame, posted graphic details on The Chronicle about the wreck. Please be mindful of others’ feelings and situations because one day they could be ours. Thank you, God, for the considerate witnesses who tried to shield the scene from the inconsiderate witnesses who were taking pictures.
