BIG RAVE FOR Dianne at the CVS pharmacy on Peach Orchard for taking her time to get me my son's medicine. She called the insurance and after they denied covering the meds, she called his doctor to get him another med that the insurance would cover.

IF I WERE RUNNING for president I wouldn't want Ted to be on my side.

FOR THE PERSON WHO thinks that the "speed humps" are tearing up his front end: You just haven't found the right speed to cross them yet.

I AM SO SICK AND TIRED of the Gilbert Manor issue. Folks want everything for free.

HOW CAN I PUT THIS as delicate as possible: George Bush is, without a doubt, the worst president this country has ever seen, bar none.

A RANT TO the mom at our daughter's basketball game who yelled and screamed the entire game. Even the referee called you out by saying, "Shame on you"! These are CHILDREN and you really need to get a grip.

ABOUT THE POST OFFICE stamp machines: I remember a few years ago the post office was trying to compete with Internet/e-mail FedEx, UPS, DHL, but all they want to do now is discontinue convenient services. I call to complain, but it falls on deaf ears. I am surprised they haven't added a tax to us for having a mailbox in our front yards.

A BIG RANT TO THOSE WHO use smokers for cannon fodder. Not all smokers are the same, so don't stereotype us. And the government needs to quit upping the cigarette tax every time they need to pad their income. Remember what the Boston Tea Party was all about?

STOP PUTTING Tubman Middle down as if it's the worst junior high school in America. Let's talk about what goes on in those schools in Columbia County, as well as some of these private schools that keep all their dirt on the hush-hush!

IF GERRI SAMS WERE white, the black community would be demanding her head on a platter. It's obvious to anyone of even average intelligence what is going on in that department.

I ATTENDED THE David Copperfield show ... at the Bell Auditorium. I have to admit, the show was outstanding. However ... I was shocked at so many empty seats. It seems Augusta is trying to get headliners here; however, we just can't bring the people to the shows. Is this the fault of our local media, civic center and Bell marketing, or just that people are unwilling to spend the money for major headliners? I tend to lean toward the media, since I don't recall one TV ad whatsoever about his appearance. I faintly recall a small ad in this Sunday's paper, though. I have to say that I am very disappointed that we are not showing these acts what Augusta has to offer. Let's go, Augusta!

Rant to the oil industry; In

Rant to the oil industry; In 05, when Katrina came through, the price of gas trippled. The oil industry made record profits. Our government/courts did nothing except to the individuals that were charging higher prices than their compatition. They were prosacuted under the law. Now, three years later, and the oil industry is still deep in our pockets, not only at the pumps but prices of our goods cost more to ship which is also passed down to the consumer. Are we financing our own war against ourselves as we keep paying them Arabs more for the oil? We do have our own oil, why not use it?

I knew this country was/is in bad shape but when did we start electing someone for President just because they speak like an evangelist at a holy roller church.

as far a jd byrider is

as far a jd byrider is concerned. they suck. i got a 2000 chevy cavalier from them. my first car. my monthly payments were 336.00 a month. the guy that sold me the car told me this was the only car they could offer me since i didn't have kids. i suggested they give me the 2002 pontiac grand am. they refused and i needed a car to get to work in. i bought the car in october. in december i kept taking the car back and they say nothing was wrong with it. around christmas time my transmission went out. now they expect me to let them try and fix it when it should have been broke in the first place. then i have to pay for a rental and continue to pay my car note. i refuse. they can have that little piece of crap car back. mind you on my application he lied and put down that i didn't have kids and it was just me and he raised my income.

Just remember you wanted that change but are you prepared for it. NO OSAMA FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!
