Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

A RANT TO the person complaining about the parents whose children failed the CRCT. What if the child just doesn't take tests well? Have you ever thought about that?

A RANT FOR Midland Valley High School who allowed the students who defaced the yearbook to participate in graduation anyway. It was one thing for them to make their mark as a senior prank, but to pick on other students ... they went just a little bit too far

I WOULD LIKE FOR that Yankee that called Jefferson Davis a traitor to the United States, I would like for him to go down to Biloxi, Miss., walk out on the street corner and say something like that and see what happens.

I WOULD LIKE TO thank the Columbia County Fire Department for getting to the fire on Legion Road so fast. The house was vacant, but the fire could have caused a lot of damage to the neighbors.

RAVES TO A wonderful man, Mr. Buck, over at the Harlem Methodist Church. He's always very nice and polite to people as we volunteer in the summer program for lunches for children.

I CAN'T BELIEVE all the fuss about the X-Mart. Augusta you think you got higher morals than everybody else?

THIS IS A RAVE for a store clerk at Wal-Mart on Bobby Jones Expressway. I want to thank her for her patience and her great customer service on the night before Father's Day.

I KNOW THIS is Augusta, home of the Masters, and CBS is the network of the Masters. However, I must say as an avid golfer that NBC's telecast of the U.S. Open, in particular the playoff Monday, was absolutely sensational and was far superior to the CBS telecasts of the Masters in recent years.

A RANT FOR the Richmond County school board and Dr. Bedden with his staff. You get an F for the school year. You get an F for teachers' conduct. You get an F for your security division. You get an F for CRCT tests. Tell us again why you are getting a raise?

I'M ABSOLUTELY APPALLED at all the people who have Paul Broun signs in their yard. Does it not matter to them that he's been married four times, been through bankruptcies ...?
