Rants and raves

Comments from our readers.

WAKE UP, AMERICA. If you really think that John McCain and Barack Obama can change your way of life then you need serious help.

THIS IS A BIG RAVE for Jason who works down at Kroger on 15th Street. He is such a wonderful manager of the meat market. I don't how they could have ever gotten along before without him.

ARE THESE MANAGERS afraid to tell these young boys to pull up their pants and tighten their belt up? I mean they look terrible walking in these places people have to go in and look at their pants hanging all around their behind.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS picture? Dr. Bedden gets a $15,000 bonus, and the Richmond County Board of Education raises our taxes.

TO THE PERSON WHO said we need new teachers in the classroom, I invite you to take a step into a teacher's role for one week. We are expected to fill the role of parent, caregiver, provider, psychologist and disciplinarian in addition to teaching the state required standards. Teachers first have to overcome the obstacle of parent and student apathy. In layman's terms, the I-don't-care attitude. Teaching first begins in the home. You want to make a difference, start with the face you see in the mirror every morning.

I WOULD LIKE TO RAVE to the Columbia County Police Department for continually patrolling the Mulliken Road area for speeders since the tragic accident on July 16.

CONGRATULATIONS TO the Augusta Lynx for hiring a wonderful coach. John Marks will be a welcome addition. We are very thankful that he is with us. I invite everyone to try and make it to as many games as possible this season. With the price of gasoline, hometown based activities are the cheapest. LETS GO LYNX!!!

WHY IS THE government bailing out so many banks? They made sorry, greedy decisions.
