To you downtowners and westsiders: South Augustans are tired of most of our taxes being used to prop you up.
The Regency Mall site is fine for the new entertainment venue. It’s perfect for that use. Get over it.
Raves to those who helped us during the storm: our friends and neighbors, those who contributed food and housing, our police who kept us safe, our school systems that wisely closed our schools for both students and teachers allowing our children to remain safe, to our newspaper (The Augusta Chronicle), whose employees never let us go a day without a newspaper, to Georgia Power employees who worked night and day to restore power, to those who picked up our trash in a timely fashion, to those who cut down trees and removed debris, to our county and state administrators who planned well ahead of this storm, we thank you.
