Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

SHARON MCALEVY IS a true leader. Gracewood Elementary is very organized, on task, and educating the beautiful children of Richmond County under the leadership of this lady.

I HOPE SOMEONE investigates the crime scenes at each gas pump, because it is criminal what they are charging and getting away with.

RANT ABOUT the lack of available Gamecock merchandise at Border Bash.

A SHAME TO SEE all the new vehicles on the road with a major defect. It seems that the turn signals do not work on most of the vehicles on the road.

RAVES TO Columbia County School Superintendent Charles Nagle for having the good judgement and courage to solve a longstanding personnel problem, a problem his immediate predecessor had hoped would just go away!

RANT TO PEOPLE who think Sarah Palin should be vice president because she "represents everyday women." Sorry, but I don't want an everyday woman running this country, I want an extraordinary woman running it.

I WOULD LIKE to know why classroom teachers in Richmond County cannot get the supplies they need for their classrooms, including material for those students who cannot read on grade level without paying for it out of their underpaid pockets, yet Bedden gets a $15,000 bonus?

TO THE PERSON who said people who work at MCG should be fired for "abandoning our posts" to smoke: We have the right to take a break just like anyone else.

IF YOU DON'T want a progressive Columbia County then move to Richmond County. They will love to have you there.

HUGE RAVE FOR Richmond Academy's Coach Hughes. He has proven to be a championship coach in soccer and now has the perennial cellar-dweller playing very respectable football.

GAS STATIONS price gouging should be fined heavily or shut down for 30 days!

RAVE FOR THE Augusta Roads and Bridges Department that reacted quickly to my call about the serious plant and shrub obstruction as you leave Jackson Road to pull on to Walton Way. The obstruction was corrected promptly!

SALUTE TO JOHNNY Hanpton. Also, thank you very much for what you have done for us.

Is "represents everyday

Is "represents everyday women" the same as "IS merely an everyday woman"? I think not. I do consider Nancy Pelosi as "extra-ordinary" in many ways, none of them good. G'mornin, namasta, and the rest of y'all!

I don't think your fellow

I don't think your fellow workers mind that you take a break to smoke. But that since we don't smoke, we don't get as many breaks as you. So I bought a pack of candy cigarettes and take a break when my fellow workers do. Problem solved!

crackerjack - LOL! Excellent

crackerjack - LOL! Excellent idea! We used to have many non-smokers come join us in the "smoke pit" just to be part of the "break area decision-making". (assuming the weather was nice)

My question is why are all

My question is why are all smoking areas right by the doors. I'm not against smoking but at the same time I shouldn't have to walk through a haze everytime I go into a business or hospital.

How about we give smokers a

How about we give smokers a covered area in which to smoke that is at least 100 feet away from the entrances to these buildings, except the women. Nothing sexier than a good looking woman with yellow teeth & finger tips with a Marlboro hanging out of her mouth.

Good morning everyone...Hope

Good morning everyone...Hope ya'll have a great day...To the ranter concerning Richmond County Schools and not enough materials plus students who have difficulty reading on level: let me clue you in on a little secret or really not so secret this has been an ongoing problem for the last twenty odd years...Yep this is nothing new...I was fighting this years ago and from what I came to understand there were people fighting it before my time...The problem I believe lies in the tremendous indifference to education while bureaucrats seek to live the high life by walking over the backs of the teachers and students...Let me clarify something...Teachers that want to teach their students instead of those who have tenure and are just going through the motions until retirement...I believe the teachers who really want to make a difference are among the minority while the ones who are riding out their time are the majority thus children are not learning...The bureaucrats keep the funds close to their pocketbooks therefore needed materials are not reaching the classrooms...There are reasons why Georgia and South Carolina are on the bottom of the totem pole of education in the United States...

To the ranter and their comment of "everyday woman"...I would rather have an "everyday woman" at the helm than a man who by nature believes themselves to be "god almighty"...If it were not for women, friend, the majority of men would not be able to find their way out of the house..This is not said in a mean-spirited way just said as truth...:-)Oh dang I need more coffee...:-)

For someone who declared

For someone who declared herself a Feminist-for-life in 2006, little Sarah sure looses her voice when a man tells her to. Now that is my kind of woman, isn't it yours also. You know the kind that dosen't speak unless a man tells her to she just stands in the background until its time for supper I guess!! Yeah we should all be extremely proud of little Sarah.

Wasn't it amazing how PELOZI

Wasn't it amazing how PELOZI screwed the whole deal yesterday? She had to get in one last jab, and it got her a NO VOTE on the bill. The less she talks, the better our country will be. I hope she gets voted out next time around.
