TO THE IGNORANT RANTER about ASU first week of school and Christian religion: How wrong you are! The first week of school has extra activities to welcome students, but the activities are not a permanent fixture of events on campus. So don't falsely say things like getting bingo. Same about your comment that ASU is against Christian religion. It's not against any religion and, in fact, there's a campus Baptist Student Union. You just can't mix religion into every single thing you want to in order to disrespect anyone else's religion.

PARAPROFESSIONALS for Richmond County are being abused by the system. In the elementary schools, they are coming to work 15 minutes early to pull breakfast duty -- supervising, sweeping, washing tables and mopping. Then they pull lunch duty for an hour every day -- supervising, sweeping, mopping, washing tables. Then in the afternoon, car duty. Cannot leave until every child is picked up -- usually 30 to 45 minutes after school gets out. They average about 1 hour of work extra a day without pay. They are working off the clock and are doing custodial duties. Custodians get paid more. Why? If their pay is from 7:15 to 2:30 they should not be working from 7:00 to 3:15. Isn't that illegal?

THE PERSON WHO RANTED on Friday about ASU exposing Christians to golf and bingo and all, neglected to mention the lions that are being imported to the Christenberry Fieldhouse and employed to eat Christians for the entertainment of heathen ASU students, faculty and staff.

Breaking news today was that Roger Clemens indicted for lying to Congress. I find that mighty strange because Congress condemns someone for lying and they make a living off lying to the American people. I don't understand it, you know. I don't care about the steroids. If they can do so much, why not put them out there for the American people?

DETERRENT. RIGHTS. I know Judge Overstreet and know he's upset and feel for him. But it wasn't his fault. And more people should do this and we wouldn't have the burglaries, rapes and murders that we have today. Deterrent.

THIS IS A RAVE for the Richmond County Sheriff's Department in the demotion of Ken Rogers.

ANOTHER RAVE to Christ Community Health Services. I carried a patient to Dr. Scarboro on Monday. His office has checked with her every day since the visit. When is the last time that your doctor has called to check on you? Thanks to people like Dr. Scarboro and his partner.

THERE'S A SAYING, "The Lord helps those that help themselves." Don't you think USA and some of the other countries in this world should start helping themselves and let the others go and take care of themselves? Let them help themselves. It's about time, don't you think?

THIS IS A RAVE for Richmond County that cut the grass around Augusta Mall at Wrightsboro Road and Bobby Jones Expressway. Now if we could just get our state government to finish the job, that would be jam up.

Noted. DOL might want to know

Noted.
DOL might want to know about working off the clock as I think this violates all kinds of work laws, insurance laws, and state policies. You should direct your complaint to them.
Bogus.
Perjury is a crime. Proving the lie is the burden of the prosecutor. Steroids harm the body when over-used for the wrong reasons.
Just because he's a judge makes this incident more newsworthy. Any responsible home owner has the right to defend his property against intrusion.
Agreed.
Nice to hear one doctor still practices the Hippocratic oath.
God favors being merciful instead of self-serving.
Noted.
Boring and mostly useless, but not heavy. On the first day of the week let's remember to make it a day of rest and worship. Enjoy those you love and spend time together. God bless and G'day.

This is a rant to the real estate firm who is selling town houses on James Brown/9th St. for $130,000. It's apparent that you are smoking crack like the rest of the folks down there!

Shamrock: The AC is just trying to fit in to the new America by having multiple standards for "different" folks.

Hint: You can say most anything you want if you let the AC know you are a protected minority.

Steroids are available right now. Amen to the rest.

Not just deterrent, but look at the cost savings!

Noted. Some people love it when others suffer misfortune.

That ain't nuttin. Does he make house calls? I do.

THERE'S A SAYING, "The Lord helps those that help themselves." Don't you think USA and some of the other countries in this world should start helping themselves and let the others go and take care of themselves? Let them help themselves. It's about time, don't you think?FO SHIZZLE and AMEN!

Wow, almost an entire paragraph by a RC inmate with great composition, then had to use "jam up". Beautiful. The intersection/interchange does indeed look much nicer.

Happy Sunday y'all, come on in, the water's fine.

Good Morning America, My

Good Morning America, My Friends and Foes.

May I request before we start the AC day with the "War Of Words" that we all Stand, Remove our head gear, Place our right hand over our hearts or in military uniform salute and repeat the following words:

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
