Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers:

I ENJOYED MY parent-teacher night at Butler High School, but the one thing that disturbed me was the school board told them they had to shut the air down at 2:30 p.m. This was uncomfortable.

LET'S SEE, THE speed limit if I remember right is 55 regardless of which lane you are in. Maybe instead of complaining about slow drivers you should thank your lucky stars that the state patrol or Richmond County's finest aren't out there giving you a speeding ticket.

I'M FOR THE Hockey Mom!

THE AUGUSTA MALL exit onto Wrightsboro Road, near Bobby Jones Expressway, needs to be monitored. Cars leaving the mall continue well past the yellow light and block the intersection all the time.

I GUESS WHEN you submit excellent comments about Mayor Deke and City Administrator Russell, they don't make the Rant & Rave section. However, when there is negativity about them it's front and center! These two listened to me when I needed it. A big rave for my Augusta city officials.

THERE ARE 195,182 people who live in Richmond County. If each donates a dollar a week for two months, we could break ground for the Kroc Center before we elect McCain president.

I WOULD LIKE to thank the principal and teachers of Grovetown Middle School for a wonderful "Parent Back to School Night."

WHY WAS MONEY wasted on crosswalks along Belair Road and S. Belair Road/ Wheeler Road? No one even walks anywhere these days.

AIKEN SHERIFF Michael Hunt is completely wrong. The officer at fault, Mr. Nation, did exactly right.

RANT FOR MAYOR Deke. We don't need a new stadium. He doesn't go to any of the games. We don't need it.

WHY IS IT so hard for managers/supervisors to communicate with their employees during critical times, especially if they have a good group of workers?

A RANT to the traffic light

A RANT to the traffic light at the intersection of Georgia Ave. and Martintown Rd. How long do I have to sit there late at night b4 I can run the light. Every night I sit there for at least 5 mins, or until another car (coming down Georgia Ave.) comes up to the light. Someone needs to check the sensors there PLEASE!
(I WILL REPOST THIS EVERYDAY UNTIL SOMETHING IS DONE!) lol

looks like officer nation got his own rant published this morning............how exactly can one be the officer at fault and be completely right at the same time? Doesnt being "at fault" indicate that you are wrong?

Ah, the sweet smell of

Ah, the sweet smell of exhaust, the rush of traffic, the gridlock of rush hour, the spilled coffee, the biscuit crumbs on your shirt and lap, the rise in your blood pressure as some ignorant moron driving 45 in the left lane eating a doughnut, drinking coffee, talking on his cell phone and checking his calendar, the imaginary sound of automatic weapons fire as you pretend to blast his self absorbed, ignorant wazoo off the face of the earth, the satisfied imaginary feeling of having rid the earth of another Obama Voter!

Hocky Mom is getting my vote

Hocky Mom is getting my vote too. Besides being smart, intelectual,and down to earth, she's beautiful. She has the right values on life and doesn't think she's better than everyone else. I just plain like her.

Officer Nation got exactly

Officer Nation got exactly what he DESERVED. He was harassing those boys from the get go. Law enforcement in many cases think they are above the law. I'm glad this one got busted. And in front of his OWN camera. Sweet.

Good Tuesday morning

Good Tuesday morning all...Thank God above that we have food, water and some gas somewhere within reason...Pray for those on the Gulf Coast....Stay safe out there people...As far as Officer Nation he was a bit over-zealous but should not have been fired...Mike Hunt you allowed your fear of community disapproval to dictate your call on this matter...

Butler High School: Is it

Butler High School: Is it possible that the AC is on a timer and shut off by itself? I can't imagine even the RCBOE making a conscious decision to turn off the AC in an occupied building. But when did they last make a conscious decision?

Interesting, give this a mull. I wonder how many other undereducated overzealous (christian134) cops there are in these parts who will perform their harassment acts directly before their own car video cams?? Not much more despicable than an overzealous cop. You are powerless.

The Dems went on vacation,

The Dems went on vacation, without Nozy Pelosi putting the energy crisis to a vote before they left, ... on purpose. They want our economy to be in a failing state for the benefit of Obama. It is the only thing he can articulate, that Everyone wants to see change. But he is not the man to do it. Mccain/Palin should be every REAL AMERICANS vote, if you care about your country more than yourself.
