Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers:

THIS IS A RAVE for the new Food Lion at North Belair and Washington roads. I just visited the store, and the staff is so friendly.

A BIG SHOUT-OUT to the men and women who protect and defend the interests of the United States of America in large and small places all over the world.

A RAVE TO NIMMONS and Malchow. Their receptionist Diane is so sweet and helpful, always willing to go that extra mile for you.

A RANT TO THE DRIVERS on I-20, especially 18-wheelers who do not merge or at least slow down as they are approaching the temporary off- and on-ramps from Bobby Jones, Wheeler Road and Washington Road. The ramps require you to stop before merging into traffic. However, the cars that are already on I-20 are speeding and do not attempt to merge to allow the traffic to get onto the interstate.

I'M SURE University Hospital could put up a copious amount of lighting if everybody who went there for service and treatment would just pay their bills for the services rendered.

RAVE FOR THE Israeli Navy for ramming Cynthia McKinney's boat, but a rant that they didn't do it hard enough to knock her overboard.

A RANT TO THE CHRONICLE for printing foreclosures and liens. Save paper and ink and stop printing what is public record. Why benefit from others' sad misfortune and sorrow in today's economy?

A RAVE FOR THE Augusta State Gospel Choir. Their new videos on YouTube are very inspirational.

AH, CYNTHIA MCKINNEY: Once an embarrassment to the people of Decatur, then an embarrassment to the people of Georgia, now an embarrassment to the people of the United States. If there are aliens out there, I hope she does not meet them.

THE CITY OF AUGUSTA without gentrification will be like the worst of downtown Chicago. Commissioners look at the reality of this mess. The residential parts of this city are at risk of becoming a dingy world-class ghetto.

ANOTHER GREAT IDEA for Augusta: Buy Olmstead Homes. Use Olmstead Homes for baseball game visitors and Masters rentals. Gate it and call it Guest Lake.

People may not like Cynthia

People may not like Cynthia Mckinney, however she was on a boat carrying civilian aid supplies. While I would prefer somebody else to hand these out, innocent people should not suffer because of the never ending conflicts that nobody can seem to get over.

Mornin all. Isn't there some

Mornin all. Isn't there some kind of legal requirement that explains (I can't immediately think of a better word.) the liens and foreclosures section of the paper? Also, one of these days I would love to meet some of the regular posters to this section.

kat30815, McKinney wasn't

kat30815, McKinney wasn't helping innocent people, she was helping the palestinians and hamas. And it's not that people don't like Cynthia, they just don't like anything she does or says.

Legal notices are usually

Legal notices are usually required to be posted in the nearest official newspaper of the area. The ranter basically answeres their own question when they rant about posting public information. What if you owned on of those homes and your tenant was failing to meet their requirements? You would probably be glad it was posted but this is basically the same as marriage licenses, applications for liquor permits, etc. It is ashame when someone looses thier home or may loose it due to foreclosure but mayge their church or friends will find out and help out.

Yes the new Food Lion on
Unpublished

Yes the new Food Lion on Belair Road is nice... however, they need to replace their milk! Grand Opening day they had milk that expired in 2 days... Their produce area had some prices missing but the lady on duty was more than happy to look them up for me and correct the problem. I couldn't find my soft drink either. I'm sure these are just grand opening pains and will be straightened out in no time... besides that, the store is nice & smells new :-)

Re;I 20; Mabe they cant merge, so that means you stop, and wait until you can continue on to the highway, what is so hard about that.

Mimsy, Israel has a right to

Mimsy, Israel has a right to defend her borders and citizens. I suppose if Canada or Mexico or both declared that the US had no right to exist and started firing rockets at you, you would just stand idly by or surrender. Israel is the innocent victim here.

Have yall noticed the

Have yall noticed the leniency from the judge ever since Elmo was shot? Maybe they are trying to appease the thug community for a while. Hawes not guilty, short sentence for repeat rapist, Jed's brother is allowed 3 months to walk the streets...what's next? What other criminals are being allowed to walk the streets?
