Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers:

I THINK IT'S FUNNY that supporters of Marion Williams would call Woody Merry a trouble-maker. I just wish Woody Merry would run for some kind of office. I know he would get elected. Go Woody!

THE PAPER SALUTED a medical health professional. How about saluting the blood donors who have helped out with special donations for the burn victims from Savannah and Mississippi being treated at the Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital?

RANT TO THE PERSON who said nurses are only nice to people with good insurance. I had Medicaid when I was pregnant and I got the BEST care from the nurses at University Hospital.

WOULD YOU PLEASE poll Augusta and the Stevens Creek Road areas and see if anyone else is experiencing cracks in their bricks, cracks in their foundations and cracks inside their homes and bathrooms and such from the blasting at the quarry?

AMAZING THAT DEMOCRATS said in 2004 that their guy, John Kerry, was the best because he had a great record of military service. Now, four years later, they say that GOP nominee John McCain's impressive service isn't important. Make your minds up!

IF YOU WANT your gas prices solved then run for city commissioner and win. Then you can ride around town and charge it to the city.

I'D LIKE TO SEND a huge rave out to the professional beauticians at the Evans Wal-Mart. They do a beautiful job.

THANKS TO THE LADY who found my credit card in the ATM machine at Kroger on 15th Street.

THIS IS A HUGE RAVE for the hummingbird man at Windmill Plantation. I was having a terrible time with bees on my hummingbird feeders. He told me to just take some Vaseline and smear it around the area where the birds feed, where they insert their beaks. The bees will not land on that, and it will not bother the hummingbirds. It's worked fine.

PLEASE LEAVE Cul de Sac and Brewster Rocket cartoons alone. Now everyone enjoys being locked in grammar school humor. Come on people, it's just a dog!

Is it any wonder that two of the A-RC commissioners who use the most gas and are now going to fly to Kansas City for a conference voted for the property tax increase?

I usually try to stick to

I usually try to stick to commenting on the topics that are Rants or Raves, but today I just want to encourage every one to get out and vote, if you haven’t already voted in the advance voting like I did. I encourage you to vote for Broun, not Fleming. I saw on the editorial page, this paper is backing Fleming and I posted my comments about that there. I don’t appreciate slick lawyers who take facts and twist them around into lies to discredit somebody else in an effort to confuse the majority of people. Broun has been doing a good job, and I see no need to change horses in the middle of the stream.

I like Woody Merry as a community activist instead of a politician. He can fight through the red tape instead of getting wrapped up in it.

The vaseline should work for

The vaseline should work for ants as well, I've also heard of spraying Pam on it works. Since you are all so smart, does anyone know if the new credit score model (vantage score) is used. I was just getting my credit scores (fico) and read about this.

John Kerry's handlers (with

John Kerry's handlers (with the help of the left wing press) changed "telling the truth" into "swift boating" and called it bad. The same tactic can't be used on McCain, telling the truth about his service makes him look better.

Reality - We'll since Pam is

Reality - We'll since Pam is designed for consumption, I'd hope it would attract ants, not chase them off. Can't help ya on the FICO stuff. My idea of a "credit score" is bumming $10 at the bar.

OK someone opened season on

OK someone opened season on politicians. Mine is why vote for Ben Harbin, yes he may have been doing a great job, but, until he stands up and takes responsibility for his actions and quits trying to use his position and lawyers to beat the system he is supposed to be upholding, then he rates right down there with worm poop. Wait, worm poop is useful.

PTHS, if the vaseline is put

PTHS, if the vaseline is put directly on the ants feet, it'll keep them off the feeder. I think it's the same concept as "salt on a birds tail".

Woody Merry has too many

Woody Merry has too many skeletons in his closet to run for public office. Marion Williams is an idiot and everytime he opens his mouth Ed Tarver gets more votes. I wonder how many individuals accept his 'free ride' to the polls and then vote for Tarver? Morning All.

To the ranter about cracks in

To the ranter about cracks in their foundations on Stevens Creek Road- I grew up in West Hills during the 70's-80's. We had damage to our house from the quarry as well. There were very visible cracks in our bricks and in our ceilings. Once after a very unexpected loud explosion, it shattered 2 lamps on our fireplace. The quarry never accepted responsibility for any damage. I notice Keystone built a new subdivision on Dennis Road which backs up to the fence of the quarry. I feel sorry for those unsuspecting residents.
