Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers.

I'M NEW TO AUGUSTA, and I wish somebody would've warned me to put a cattle guard on the front of my truck to keep jaywalkers out of the way.

I LIVE IN GREEN MEADOWS and I'm ashamed for people to come up here on Green Meadows Drive because of all the bottles and trash and everything. It needs to be cleaned up.

CONGRATULATIONS FOR Rants & Raves. I'm quite sure it takes a lot of people's frustrations away by writing in what they don't like or do like, and therefore saves people from getting shot.

THE DOG PARK is not a good idea. I am old, can't walk very good and I sure don't need a dog jumping up on me, knocking me down.

THE SUPERINTENDENT and members of the Jenkins County Board of Education must think that the citizens of Jenkins County are stupid.

A GIANT RAVE TO the very nice gentleman who stopped to change my flat tire April 5 when I was on my way to Wal-Mart. You were so kind; you gave me good advice on how I should get the tire fixed.

A RANT FOR THE DOT, State Patrol, Richmond County police or whoever is responsible for these big trucks on Highway 56, Mike Padgett Highway. They just high ball it up and down that road all the time. Someone needs to do something and slow these big trucks down.

TO THE WOMAN I saw poking her thumbnail into the ears of corn at the grocery store: Nobody wants to buy the corn that you have stuck your fingernail into and tossed back.

RANT FOR THE CLOSING of the Northwood and Riverridge exit/entrances. This is the first time in over 45 years this has happened. We resent it.

A RANT CONCERNING THE Avondale settlement. I was an employee there, and I believe the money should be split with the employees that lost their jobs.

Good grief, you really check

Good grief, you really check corn that way? You really ARE sick. You pull back the husk to check it instead of sticking a fingernail in it! You need to stick to buying frozen veggies!

"THE DOG PARK is not a good idea. I am old, can't walk very good and I sure don't need a dog jumping up on me, knocking me down." Maybe you should just stay out of the dog park and they won't jump on you.

Confining dogs to their masters yards, cars and dog parks only would make it safer for the elderly to go everywhere else.

Even newbies learn how to

Even newbies learn how to deal with jay walkers. If you hit them too hard they'll dent your car. At 15mph they almost always survive and your car doesn't get messy.

Why do these backwards "Good

Why do these backwards "Good Ole Boys" in Augusta want to have things like a dog park. This is the reason Augusta is way behind the times. We need restaurants, better attractions and PRETTY WOMEN.

PAW - The "Good Ole Boys"

PAW - The "Good Ole Boys" exercise their dogs in the fields and woods while hunting. They don't need dawg parks. The women comment is too stupid to even comment on. Go buy yourself another jar of vaseline and a box of kleenex and enjoy the internet.

I've never met a woman who wasn't pretty, it's just that with some you have to look long and hard to find the beauty that's there! ( and for some of them I'm still looking!)

No, our dog owners here are

No, our dog owners here are responsible enough not to have more dog than they have yard to accomodate. Also while walking their dogs they have learned that should their dog leave something on someones property it will promptly be returned to the dog owners front door! As soon as the peanuts show up I'll be the first to let you know, it should be anytime now.

For the person on 25 or 56

For the person on 25 or 56 you are the danger. I bet your the one going just under the speed limit. Thats illeagal to slow poke.
To all Dog owners love your dog. If a dog craps in your yard thank him for the fertilizer.

CSRAider I know for a fact

CSRAider I know for a fact most of those pulpwood and rock and gravel and chip trucks are running 75 to 80 with failing equipment(such as brakes), and what the dogs leave behind will not fertilize your lawn, but it will kill it! I get more than a little scared when I see someone hauling 20+ tons of rock at 80 mph while talking on a cell phone and swerving between two lanes of traffic, or logs beginning to slide off the back of a pulpwood truck at those same speeds, not to mention all the debris blowing off of and out of those same trucks!

This is just a little note to the driver in the blue Jeep Renegade behind me this mornin at the intersection of William Few and Washington Rd.,in the left turn lane. You know, I know and the rest of the drivers sitting at the intersection know you ran the red light this morning. I was already out in the intersection when the light changede from yellow to red and you were still behind the stop sign but you chose to run the red light and come out behind me. The light was RED AND YOU KNOW IT! and God knows it too.

CBBP: "I've never met a woman who wasn't pretty" - I guess that was after a Tarmini or two.

Picking up trash in my

Picking up trash in my neighborhood is fine, I don't mind that at all, what I do have a problem with.... In Haverhill.... is all the yards I have to drive past that look like Sanford and Son to get home. It is embarrassing to have somebody come to my home, and see my neighbors yards, when I take care of my property. Have they no pride?
