Rants and Raves

Comments from our readers:

WHAT'S WITH THE median on Wheeler Road? The grass is at least a foot tall. Get it cut.

RANT TO ALL who might tailgate me, honk at me or flip me off for doing 55 mph, which, by the way, is the speed limit! I've gone from using almost a full tank of gas a week to just slightly over a half tank. While you are at the pump getting your $5 gas, I will be the one waving while passing by!

IT'S PRETTY SAD when I take my child to a "children's" function, that some parents can't seem to leave their wine at home! I didn't think that alcohol was allowed at the Columbia County Amphitheater during those type of events. It's also sad knowing that they drove their child home after downing that bottle of wine.

A RANT TO ALL politicians who can't face up to doing wrong. I would like to know what strings Sen. Cheek pulled to get his in-law such a light sentence. And B. Harbin? Just admit that you made a mistake and own up to it.'

TO THE PERSON who enjoyed open house at their child's school but was disturbed about the air being shut down at 2:30, try WORKING there after 2:30!

WHERE IS THE Doctors Hospital entrance?

A MAJOR RAVE to the customer at a Central Avenue gas station who gave me $10 to help out with gasoline. He put the money in my hand and just walked away. Thank you, kind stranger.

A RANT FOR ALL of Wrightsboro Road! I don't think there's a smooth spot anywhere.

A RAVE TO THE KIND PERSON who paid for mine and my husband's dinner at Country Boys Diner on Story Mill Road recently. Thank you and God bless you!

FORGET THE STADIUM! Fix the streets!

Yeah, well.....TRY to remember the Passing Lane is for, you guessed it, PASSING. Just like the word intimates.

Hey pete! Um, with the

Hey pete! Um, with the medications you are on...I worry, if this is of the utmost importance to you...lol. But dude-I have no idea whether any liquor stores are open on Sundays in Aiken. I should think the inter-mingling of medication and wine, beer or anything with a lesser "bang" would suffice. But I'm no expert, no. Hope you're well. Have a great day, bud...(':

angiesdad why harbor such ill

angiesdad why harbor such ill feelings so early in the AM?? It must make the rest of your day so very miserable (and makes you sound a little bit jealous of ksl and her educated spouse not to mention her well stocked liquor cabinets.) And to everyone else Good Morning !! Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood !!

C&P from sylvia Coopers

C&P from sylvia Coopers column.........Anyway, all the news about gasoline caused me to think about how our Augusta commissioners are faring through the crisis. Since Jan. 1, six of them had pumped 2,329 gallons. You didn't see the $7,870.62 bill, but you paid it. Commissioner Corey Johnson is still in the lead with 758 gallons, barely ahead of Alvin Mason with 627 gallons. Calvin Holland burned 423 gallons; Mayor Pro Tem Betty Beard , 187; Don Grantham , 193; and Jimmy Smith , 139 gallons. ..You just gotta love those hardworking clowns : (

The tall grass on Wheeler Rd

The tall grass on Wheeler Rd median might be the same wild stuff that is in my yard. You cut it one day, and 2 days later it needs it again. I think its called wild bermuda. Anyhow, that is the very least of my worries today. Haven't you heard? The sky is falling....
