Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers:

THIS IS A RAVE for the Home Depot employee in Evans whose name is Clement. I was there and was wearing a heart monitor and had too many things in my basket, I guess, and my monitor went off. He came to my rescue. He took my stuff. He put it in the car. And I paid for it. He got me some water. He gave me a place to sit down. I wish there were people like you, Clement.

SHAME ON THE PERSON who stole the wheelchair from the back of my husband's truck. I do hope you really needed it.

KUDOS TO MICHAEL HOLAHAN for his picture of the little baseball playing girl in Thursday's paper. Should win an award.

DO WE HAVE any extra Deputies available to patrol Mike Padgett Highway? Something really needs to be done about all the speeders on this road.

I MUST RESPOND to other "Rants and Raves" in regard to church attire. One person said God doesn't care what you wear to church. What if men wear Speedos and women wear bikinis? Maybe the person who does "their own thing at home" might involve a six pack. Show your respect when you are in God's house. It doesn't mean if you can't wear a suit, don't come. It means dress appropriately.

TO ALL RESPONSES on church attire: Worship as you please and where you please. You can come to my church anytime you want to. We don't judge what you wear or what you don't wear. We are all there for the same reason. To give God the glory he deserves.

LET ME SAVE the city $40,000 and a trip to Little Rock. The only place where a trolley is successful is a city that has many tourists. We need to attract tourists first. The locals will not ride a trolley. Spend the study money on a poll of potential riders, and you will get your answer.

IT'S RIDICULOUS that the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame board of directors might prevent the volunteers from finishing their cleanup of the gardens. These people volunteered their time to work in this heat. They should be commended, not prevented from finishing because someone got their feelings hurt over a sign.

TO THE LADY who drives a possibly silver Mitsubishi with a Georgia decal on your back window, that pulled out of First Bank of Georgia Wednesday morning around 11:15, that did not stop at the stop sign: You pulled out in front of my son on his motorcycle. He went from 40 to zero in 2 seconds. Your back end hit the front of his bike. You came close to putting somebody in the hospital.

The #2 ranter seems to have been visited by friends of Mr. Riley or Riley himself, maybe the Law Enforcement Officer that said he (Riley) couldn't get too far without a wheelchair was right, at least about him needing a wheelchair...Lojack for wheelchairs!

To the # 6 raver, if the #5 ranter came in a speedo or a bikini, you might just notice what they wore and what they didn't wear all in the same gaze.

Can Anyone tell me Why the

Can Anyone tell me Why the Now Defunct Georgia Golf Hall of Fame still has a Board of Directors? If the state doesn't want to pay for the maintenance of the property, they should be prepared to sting when someone notices their failure. Augusta's mob has a plan to turn the property into a parking deck for Deke and Cal's Riverfront stadium, if Betty Beard can keep her slum and $1 a night Hotel tipping fee.....Wind In His Hair and Dances With Wolves say....."Good Trade"

Fire the board of directors

Fire the board of directors and hire a lawn care company. Better use of the money. Or better yet unlock the gates and let the volunteers do their job. But still fire the board.

Don Imus was fired for using the term "Nappy headed hos" about a basketball team by the same station that refuses to fire David letterman for saying a fourteen year old was having sex in the bleachers with Arod....Check out the website "firedavidletterman.com......Is this a double standard or what. An inspector gerneral was fired because his independent research team discovered fraud and misappropriation among O"bama supporters...Acorn workers seen at polls in Iran (just a joke here) lol

Most people who go into a

Most people who go into a church do dress up a bit as it is more comfortable wearing similar attire and not standing out as 'different'. Unless the church is on a beach it is highly unlikely that a person will show up for services wearing a speedo or a bikini. I maintain that Jesus preached to the beggars wearing their rags as well as the wealthy wearing costly apparel, they were all children of God in his eyes. He said nothing about a dress code in order to be received in His house. To scorn or turn away a person just because their dress doesn't meet with your approval is snobbish and not in keeping with Christ's message of love and acceptance.

Eyes people just want to be pharisees, and judge whats on the outside to hide the sins they have on the inside.

Irish, in this world of many

Irish, in this world of many colors it seems, only one color can correctly discern discrimination and hatred. They're also popular at defining Political Correctness, what it is and what it is...or is that will be? You'll have to excuse me, I'm Ebonically Challenged...

Actually Trey1874, Jesus

Actually Trey1874, Jesus preached unto the few and unto the masses, but when he went into the Synagogue, He wore proper attire. Besides, the only reason anyone haughty complains about what someone is wearing is because of two main reasons: (1) Their husband has a staring problem or(2) What you are wearing has detracted attention away from the stunningly expensive attire that they themselves have on.

Jesus also preached its

Jesus also preached its better to be clean on the inside than the outside. How people dress is a cultural issue not biblical. I have visited many different churches, and in my experience visiting a less formal church has always been more rewarding! Neverless, this is why we have a church on each corner, so the like minded can worship together. It is great to have freedom of religion.

Nammy in your hubby's

Nammy in your hubby's defense, if a women is wearing a tight dress and cleavage hanging out, it would take a blind man not to look. It's the 5 second rule. A look less than 5 seconds is admiring her beauty. Any more than 5 seconds is gualking. Head turning and watching her until she is out of sight is lusting.

Yeah Trey, and it depends on

Yeah Trey, and it depends on how slow you count. Then again, some gifted women walk really fast, so to follow them all the way across the room could be less than 5 seconds, again, depending on how slow you count. I myself cannot look at another woman for any length of time, my wife has a suped up stopwatch that counts really fast...especially if there's cleavage involved.
