RANT TO NORTH AUGUSTA building code department. I have repeatedly reported an abandoned house that is trashed on the inside and nothing has been done about dead trees. Whoever has this house needs to be penalized. It has been like this for six years.

I DON’T UNDERSTAND why there is not a law requiring that everything is cut back from the wires. If there had been pre-emptive cutting of trees next to wires, we wouldn’t have had a loss of power at all.

PEOPLE, PLEASE VOTE NO to SPLOST. Save your money; lower taxes; just vote no.

IT IS VERY APPROPRIATE that the city administrator job announcement was located on the obituaries page. What do you think of that?

I’M TIRED OF THE DRUGS in my area near Dyess Park. I’m going to help the police get rid of the drug dealers and users.

TODAY MY LIMBS were picked up by county employee Curtis Crump and his assistant. They were very professional, and they did an outstanding job. I’m proud our county has such good employees.

I’M AN 80-YEAR-OLD youngster who ate at a Clearwater restaurant and was told God paid my bill. Thank you to the angel who did. I appreciate it.

ARE GIRL SCOUT COOKIES two different prices in Georgia and South Car­o­lina?

OUR PRESIDENT IS NOT the president of the world. I think he is protecting the bankers.

LET THE UKRAINIANS and the Russians solve their problems themselves. We don’t need Obama sticking his nose in it.

FOR THE PERSON WHO stole the 4-day-old baby goat from the Appling yard, you will be caught and prosecuted because someone may be able to ID your vehicle. Anyone who would do something so heartless should spend time in jail.

THE WOMAN WHO WAS too big to sit in a chair may have had a thyroid conditions. How dare the ranter make fun of people who are overweight? He should be ashamed of himself.

IT LOOKS LIKE ALL OF THE politicians are turning up crooked. They should all be investigated. We pay their salaries. We need to know.

TO SOLVE THE Ukrainian situation, I think Obama and Putin should fight like the Romans in the old days.

Never would have loss power?

There are other things that cause power outages.

ICE forms on wires adding 1000's pounds of weight to already stretched and tensioned wires. Let large section of ice fall off all at once and you get bound back and wire touch or break the result OPPPPSSSS! No power.

Now let talk about those 75ft Pines 20 feet in the middle of a person yard 50 foot from the cut back right-a-way. Ice adds tons to a Pine tree causing it to bend over with the direction of the wind. That's why you see all those tree limbs today 3+ weeks later.

While we are at it, lets discuss all those trees that people down town fought to keep from being trimmed because they were Century old Oaks.

Sorry can't blame the last power outage totally on the Power Companies.

Get rid of Drug dealers?

1st be careful.

2nd get a digital camera with zoom
Video and photo from a safe place.
Drop the video chip by the Drug investigator office on the other side of the park by the old jail.

Ask for "Pork Chops" and hand it to him.
He's good,and took care of a local minor dealer problem we had the same week.

Europeans solve their own

Europeans solve their own problems.

We tried that in 1914 and again in 1939

Both times it failed and cost MILLIONS OF LIVES.

No war is local, in a Global Economy.

Interesting side note:
80% of Communists /Soviet males born in 1923 didn’t survive WWII so there was a plus side, it stalled communism's growth 10-20 years.

By all accounts the 1 person who profited the most money from WWII, was Max Heiliger and never showed up to collect his bank account assets.☺

Post # 8 asks, “ARE GIRL SCOUT COOKIES two different prices in Georgia and South Carolina?”Yes they are priced differently and they are also produced by two separate companies which give them a slightly different taste.

You are definitely not a property owner. Spend your money and get things needed done.

Agree Seenit....noticed the cereal boxes are the same height but are narrower, I guess so no one notices. Same with bottled sodas....what I thought I was getting were 6 - 20oz bottles but upon further inspection they were actually 6 - 16.9 oz bottles. Same height but narrower around.

Good Morning "Thyroid Justification" USS of America.

If that is a justified reason for all the obese humans walking among us, then without a doubt, we have a Thyroid plague here in America!

What!

A goat theft in Appling. It stands to reason, that it has to be someone from another county. Wasn't Richmond county looking to place goats at a retention pond a while back?

baby goat missing

Is it possible a big bird or animal got this goat? I have been reading about that happening in some places....hungry animals & the hunting is scarce in winter.
OK it was Alaska, but ya never know.

Reed could win at Masters....:)

"He's playing good," Watson said of Reed. "He's real young but obviously is a great player. He has a lot of confidence, and that's really what it is. It takes a lot of confidence. You see that with a lot of guys, when you have confidence, and he's backing it up with his game. He has the same ball flight I think every time, a little draw, and putts the ball really well."

I was all ready to slam the

I was all ready to slam the "thyroid" excuse, and looked for supporting evidence. Much to my surprise, I find this: "Small Differences in Thyroid Function May Be Important for Body Mass Index and the Occurrence of Obesity in the Population"

http://sportsnutritionist.info/course/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/TSHando...

Still, it boils down to taking in more than you are putting out. Some just can't take in as much as others due to genetics, lack of activity, etc.

Conditioning maybe?

I recall when Leo Mazzoni was the Braves pitching coach how he would have the pitchers throw long fly balls to each other to help get and keep their arms in shape. The pitchers at that time said it was a great help.
