Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

WE HAD SOME limbs cut from our front yard, and the workers cut all of the limbs within regulation size for our trash selection and placed everything over the fence with the limbs. We received a notice that said that all the limbs must be separated from the tree itself. This is totally ridiculous. The next thing you know they will want a red bow tied around the limb. We pay taxes so people can come by and we can bow down to their knees. I hope nobody else experiences this problem. My husband is 77 years old and has been out there trying to separate the limbs from the tree.

THIS IS A RANT for the Richmond County schools. They sent us a letter last week telling us that we could transfer our son to a different high school because his did not make adequate yearly process. My son graduated in May. No wonder they are at the bottom of the list nationally.

THIS IS RAVE for the Appleby Branch Library staff. Your encouragement, your friendliness and your thoroughness are much appreciated. The PINES library system is impressive, and it takes people to make it feel like home. Your staff is patient and awesome. Thank you to Ms. Kathy, Ms. Betty, Ms. Nicole, Ms. Sharon and Ms. Kendra. Thank you for all you do.

THIS IS TO THE comment about Michael Vick. I don't know why everybody keeps saying pull his merchandise from the shelf and suspend him. He has not been proven guilty yet. Once it all comes out and he is proven innocent, then maybe all the big-mouth people will keep their mouths shut.

THIS IS A RANT against Augusta. I am very disappointed that no one has done anything to honor the Augusta Spartans football team for winning the championship game. I bet if it had been the Augusta Lynx or the GreenJackets there would be celebrations all over the place. Once again, Augusta shows its true colors.
