Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

I WANT TO GIVE a big old rave to the maintenance man Tommy at Pendleton King Park. He's really got that place looking good.

THIS IS A RANT for the people who run the stop sign at Lake Avenue and Woodlawn Avenue in North Augusta. Please slow down and stop at the stop sign. North Augusta Public Safety needs to wake up and send a policeman out there to write tickets.

THIS RANT IS in regard to the opening GreenJackets game. I believe it's inexcusable to have a nonworking scoreboard on opening day. Please have this problem addressed.

Odd that the Augusta "Law Department" found no conflict of interest in Dr. Frank Carl running two outfits, one the Augusta Port Authority and the other a greener outfit called Savannah Riverkeeper Inc. The port authority, presumably, requires a nonpolitical point of view, while the greeners prefer a completely political point of view, despite what they might say to the contrary.

TO THE PERSON ranting about the deputy sitting in his car at Stevens Creek and Washington roads during Masters Week: You need to get your glasses checked. Did you not see the cable from the signal light box running in the window of the patrol car? That's how the deputy was controlling traffic.

UNFORTUNATELY, not everyone down here is a "Southern Christian." Some might claim to wear that badge but really aren't Christians, or they wouldn't act or talk the way they do.

REPLY TO RANT against the Columbia County Young Republicans: George Bush is no longer president. What the Young Republicans did or did not do is not relevant now. President Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress are in charge now. Maybe too many people were distracted by issues in Iraq and Afghanistan when Bush was president. And to answer your question with a question -- where were the Young Democrats with their tea parties when Bush was in office?

THIS IS A RANT for whoever cut the grass and weeds on the right of way on Sawmill Trail in the Mill Branch subdivision in Grovetown: All the dead grass you left in the road looks worse than if you had just left the grass and weeds uncut. If you're going to cut it, clean up the mess left behind.

I'm sure the nonfunctional

I'm sure the nonfunctional Lake Olmstead Stadium scoreboard was done intentionally to help gain support for a new downtown venue. It certainly couldn't have been an Opening Day glitch, huh? Hey, it's Earth Day - make sure to fire up those outdoor charcoal BBQ grills! G'mornin, Nammy and all y'all!

Yeah Happy Earth Day, the antarctic ice shelf is getting bigger on the north side but because the south side is getting smaller (it's staying about the same size, just shifting) and they want to spend trillions of dollars on global warming. Thank you Al Gore, you are about the best con-artist of all time.

Tuj - G'mornin, better than

Tuj - G'mornin, better than just having a BBQ, everybody should go ahead and load up the SUV or Pickup and tow the boat to the lake and set up the grill there on the banks beween boat rides. Make sure you throw all the empy beer cans overboard and leave the styrofoam plates strewn around the picnic area when you are done. Somebody needs to keep their clean-up job - we pay taxes and park fees for that!

Also, everytime you see

Also, everytime you see somebody wearing tie-dye clothing walking along the side of the road with a bag, make sure you throw your McD's lunch bag out the window so they have something to pick up to make them feel good about themselves because they are "helping".

I bet they were not allowed

I bet they were not allowed to clean the grass off the road because of Earth Day. What would they do with it? Can't put it in a plastic bag, can't burn it, can't take it to a landfill.....

I wonder if they have checked

I wonder if they have checked out a possible link between these crimes. They may have needed the beer to wash that stale brick bun sammich down since they had no money left to buy a new one, and the employee wouldn't remake it....

I believe they sdtole the beer to 1. soften up the sammie, 2. give the sammie some flavor and 3. something to wash it down.

To the ranter about Southern

To the ranter about Southern Christians my answer to you is that you could very possibly be right about Christians or those who "Claim" to be Christian...Some are by far the greatest of hypocrites but that a cop-out for those who are just looking for an excuse for their own behavior...Now if you are making this statement simply because we who protest the immorality of this nation's actions as well as speaking out against a Pres. who hasn't a clue as to what is what, using people to further his own climb to glory and power then you must back that train up...Speaking out against a wrong or many wrongs is righteous not being a mock Christian...

I mow all the front yards on

I mow all the front yards on our lovely cul de sac. When done, I go back and edge the curbs, edge the sidewalks and driveways, then use a blower to blow all the debris back into each yard. I'll do all that without asking for payment, but picking up the stuff will cost ya ;-)
