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!

To MHwhatamessthisis.
Don't speed in North Augusta. If you do, they can follow you to Canada and issue a ticket. So many speeders cross the bridges from North Augusta to Augusta. They assume (you know what that means, huh?) that once you get on the bridge you are out of North Augusta. NOT. Slow down to 35 please.

Why are students at Monte

Why are students at Monte Sano being allowed to assault students without being punished? My nephew was punched in the face and the same child that punched him later that day punched a little girl in the face. My nephew was moved to another class but nothing happened to the boy who was punching others! Why is this allowed? If you read the code of conduct it says that students should be suspended. It shouldn't matter if the kid is 6 or 16. No wonder they fight in high school...they don't think anything will happen. Discipline in Richmond County needs to be looked into.

Who is this idiot complaining

Who is this idiot complaining about the grass? Aparently they don't know that median grass ONLY gets cut during the Masters extravaganza!!! Thats when we clean everything around here. Wouldn't want the visitors to fly in and see how we live the rest of the year, would we. And quit complaining about rough roads. They are left that way to keep people from speeding and also to keep dirt from the underside of your car.

Ya think concernedaunt...This

Ya think concernedaunt...This type of non-discipline behavior has been going on for years....Much of it has to do with the fact that the teachers and principles have no authority to punish these "children" simply because someone somewhere will always try and get the teachers and principles fired and sued...Parents will not punish the kids, many because they are not to be found, grandparents are left to raise them and they are out of energy, or they just are waiting for the right scenario to come along so they can sue...Or more likely they feel little Johnny or Susie is an angel therefore no one is going to punish them not even the parents...Therefore discipline is non-existent...

Concernedaunt, not sure about

Concernedaunt, not sure about RC schools. But, CC schools have a zero tolerance reagrding drugs, fighting, etc. And they enforce it! Usually, both kids are suspended. Nobody deserves to be hit!

Some drivers! Ever drive up

Some drivers! Ever drive up Jackson Road toward Wrightsboro? Some folks don't "drive" up that hill, they "coast" up the hill, going slower and slower, until they are going about 5 mph instead of maintaining the 35 mph speed limit. That's fine (though dumb) if there are no cars behind you, but there is usually a line of traffic on that road. You are not at "Putt Putt", you are driving a car.

I agree with the rant about

I agree with the rant about drinking with your children. I think it is horrible when you go out to eat and every adult at the table next to has multiple drinks and then drives their children home. Regardless if you drink wine in church or any where else for that matter, I just don't think you should do it and then drive with your children. If you want to involve alcohol in your evening then get a sitter!

The only liquor you can buy

The only liquor you can buy on Sunday's in Aiken is in restaurants with a license by the glass. Beer and wine are sold in stores inside the City of Aiken who have opted to pay for the special license to sell alcohol on Sundays for off site consumption.

Gee whiz, angiesdad, you do obsess about the same old subjects. As usual, you are incorrect in your statements of fact. My husband and I do not, nor have we ever lived on the south side of Aiken.

ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!! To the person ranting about tailgaters. You are probably one of those who thinks they are the speed police and drive in the left lane to force others to slow down. If someone is coming up behind you faster than you are driving, the law says you are to move over. Be courteous!!
