COMMISSIONER DIANE FORD downplays the need for an aquatic center in Columbia County due to 1,200 miles of shoreline at Lake Thurmond and neighborhood swimming pools. I'm sure the hundreds of year-round swimmers in this county will be thrilled by the prospect of swimming laps after dark at the lake or their neighborhood pool in January.

A SKEPTICALLY RAISED eyebrow to Republicans who sacrificed their own primary vote in order to vote against Marion Williams in the Democratic primary.

WE NEED MORE POLICE out here on Hephzibah-McBean Road. We have speeders, cars passing each other when they shouldn't and now we have idiots breaking into vehicles, What are y'all waiting on, for someone to get killed!

BY ALL MEANS, arrest the thieves of copper tubing, manhole covers, and most recently the bronze urns stolen from graves. Then, arrest the scrap metal dealers buying this material. C'mon, what's the believable story for some bum to walk in with a city manhole cover.

IN 10 YEARS MCG in Augusta will be part of the University of Georgia. Augusta will just be another city suffering from an eroding economic base. I say Sic'umm you hairy dogs. ("Woof, Woof.")

A HUGE RAVE FOR Dennis Sodomka for his outstanding time as executive editor of The Chronicle and a rant for the decision allowing him to leave. Mr. Sodomka brought innovations which made the paper more readable and accessible. We will miss him.

The editor was not a captive

The editor was not a captive slave, he chose to leave. Why can't y'all understand this? "Allowing him to leave" ? He is a free citizent of the USA who is allowed to decide where he wants to work or not work. G'mornin!

to the rant about the scrap

to the rant about the scrap metal dealers, the bum with the manhole cover "just found it laying right there in the street", and he made an honest attempt to find the owner, but no one was around, so he kept it and sold it, there is your reason he was carrying it around.........lol

To the first ranter. You may be correct; but, my tax dollars should not have to subsidize someone elses swimming.

If you want to swim during the winter, try the Y, great pool, open year round. Sorry I forgot, the individual has to pay for use, not the gov't.

I believe the aquatic center

I believe the aquatic center has been pulled off the final list for the SPLOST. It was a real joke how CC took suggestions for the SPLOST list.

A skeptically raised eyebrow,

A skeptically raised eyebrow, in this case, shows a lack of understanding. Williams showed his true colors while plaguing the county during his tenure on the commission. Many residents voted against him.

I think the ranters point on

I think the ranters point on "allowing Sodomka to leave" was that the paper didn't try hard enough to keep him by offering him way too much money. I hope his replacement gets up to speed soon.

Let everybody learn to swim

Let everybody learn to swim at the lake - based on recent events, it will save public funds in the long run. No failed CRCT's, no summer-school, no free meals, no YDC ..... the list goes on.
