I think the payment of surgeries for overweight people is terrible! I am overweight myself and as hard as I try, I can't seem to keep the extra weight off but I sure don't feel like someone should pay for surgery as there is always a risk with such surgeries which do not always work. Or are these surgeries supposed to be a way to study the harmful effects by people foolish enough to risk their lives getting cut into?

The city accepted federal monies for new streetlights adding to our national debt. The cities and states should refuse federal dollars. if they want new street lights the city should pay for them. My federal tax dollars should not be used for dumb street lights.

ASU is the tax supported college that denies rights to Christian students. But what does ASU favor? The first week of school includes: rides, games, food, bingo, fireworks, golf, "to gear up students." ASU uses absurdity to "welcome" students, but does not welcome Christians. Christians, beware! Don't get near ASU. They might give you some golf or bingo.

Thank you Lewiston Elemetary for locking the doors and making the parents stand in the rain, thunder and lightning before parent orientation. We really got a good idea of how much value you place on our lives and the lives of our children!

If local school officials had brains they'd know that accepting even one federal grant means they are ceding legitimate local authority to the federal government. This is both unconstitutional and supremely dumb.

Sylvia Cooper is a great communicator and gives me a good laugh every time I read her comments.

If you have a potbelly and don't use deodorant, then please don't wear a tank top out to a restaurant. You are just telling everyone that you are a slob. If you can't dress properly then eat at home or go to the drive thru.

Another rave for Dr. Frank Moreland and all those in his practice and office. They treated our fragile rescued cat with sensitivity and excellent care, upholding humane ethics to the highest degree. Our simple, but very lovable, gray tabby cat was given the best of veterinary service, even to the very end.

The government (all levels) made a big secrecy deal out of what was being dug up at Ft. Lawton/Magnolia Springs State Park at Millen. Now the GA Southern website reveals the big secrets. That's it?! A pipe? A cut bullet?! Why such secrecy? What idiots govt produces!

I like most Americans agree with the president concerning religious freedom. But, common sense should question promoting a mosque to be built near Ground Zero. Not only is this a slap in the face and insult to all impacted by the terrorist attack of 911, but also is another example of Muslims attempting to subjugate all non-believers (infidels).

People that want to move to North Augusta, come on over. The mosquitoes are very hungry. Almost no money is being spent on mosquito spray. Come on over.

IT doc. Out of work

IT doc. Out of work americans will drive by and say " wow it is unbelieveable what some people will do for a couple of pennys. I am just waiting for the day people like you are replaced by cheap labor from India or Pakistan. I assumed they were illegal, the same way I assume someone with a turban on the head is a muslim or a 2x4 to the head hurts even if you have never had it happen personally. It is called common sense.

ITdoc what is a "rare native born american"? Is that another way of saying black race? Sure sounds like you are playing a race card or something. BTW Naturalized americans must be able to speak, read and write english.

That was not at all what he was saying and you know it. I'm sorry to jump in for somebody else, but that was just a ridiculous comment. He is on a job site at the moment and can't respond himself. He is printing money.....

I would loooove loooove love it if Johnny Edwards would come back (where are you??) Oh, and Damon Cline too (MCG doesn't need you like we do) By the way, has anyone noticed more road lights out across Augusta? Is this the city trying to save money, or just shoddy utilities dept. work?

They can't replace them. They haven't found an eco-friendly way to dispose of the new eco-friendly bulbs. Only choice is to leave 'em there.

I am so grateful to live in a country with so few immediate concerns that our Government can prosecute Roger Clemens for lying to Congress.

There certainly cannot be a better use of our tax payer funded representatives time, fo shizzle.

Stickmen said he got banned

Stickmen said he got banned for misspelling Siilque's name. Appears he spelled it siliyque or some such way. Said it ws an honest mistake. Also appears the moderators need to ratchet the PC machine down a notch or two!

Just returned from a

Just returned from a semi-business lunch at 1102.

Called Sarge and this is what he said about Lori his daughter.

She had what is called an "Aspirated Seizure". Prior, she had develop phenomena and had a vomit episode where some of it had entered her lungs and caused an infection. Doctors stated that she almost received a ticket to see the good Lord. Because it was caught as fast as it was, she is now out of critical condition and is recovering nicely.

Sarge said he was unable to get on line up their where they are at and will maybe be home tomorrow.

Wants to thanks everybody for their concerns.

This was also sent by email.

What Clemens did gives a

What Clemens did gives a whole new meaning to the concept of shooting yourself in the foot. Why would anyone, not subpoenaed by the Feds, feel so compelled to rush on over to congress, so he can say tons of things that can, and are, being held against him? Seriously? Hey, you can lie to the media, you can lie in print, you can even lie to the cops, but what is now happening to him is exactly the reason why most people avoid congressional hearings, unless forced to testify. Because, as Blago has just learned, you just can't lie to the Feds. Really bad idea!
