WHAT A FINE mess Fire Chief Howard Willis left behind. It’s hard to believe that all of the shenanigans have been allowed to go on for years. It took a recent Augusta Chronicle investigation to identify the illegal behavior. Thanks to The Chronicle for causing the problem to be identified. Keep going after corrupt situations like this one.

A BIG RAVE to District 8 Augusta Commission member Wayne Guilfoyle for taking time from his busy schedule, his family and his business to meet with more than 100 Goshen residents. His honest and straightforward discussion on several adverse issues concerning the south side and our community was much appreciated.

WHY WAS THAT firefighter on paid leave if they found proof that porn was sent and received from his computer? If you had proof, the guy should be punished with unpaid leave. I’m glad The Augusta Chronicle has been publishing the photos and names (so) at least put faces out so people can see them and wag their fingers or give a tongue lashing to them.

THE CITY’S out-of-shape firefighters, like their union spokesmen should voice their complaints in the newspaper or on radio and not show themselves in public until they can get back into working physical condition.

THE PERSON WHO hit the high school coach with a helmet deserves to go to prison for many years.

RAVES TO THE manager of the Krystal on Walton Way, Daryl Wilson. A lot of managers in fast food could take a tip from him.

JOHN BARROW IS a good man. He stands for what is right, and that includes everybody – not just Democrats.

A RANT TO THOSE who complain about President Obama campaigning around the country to promote job creation. President Bush did the equivalent of fiddling while Rome burned. He just sat back and allowed this financial disaster to happen.

A RANT FOR the rude “gentleman” who got out of his vehicle to point and yell at the guy who accidentally pulled out a little too far near O’Charley’s in Aiken. There’s a little thing called the Golden Rule; praying for you to find some peace!

#8- WRONG-Bush went to

#8- WRONG-Bush went to Country wide Dodd AND Barney Frank and asked them to help control Fannie May and Freddie Mac and they both refused Bush's request. The US government (meaning you and me) are on the hook for billions more because of Frank and Dodd's refusal and this is part of what started the housing market crash...

Will there ever be an investigation of criminal acts by deputies in the Sheriff's Office like there has been for the Fire Department ? Well, only if the person being reported isn't in the click.

Re #5: The thug who assaulted

Re #5: The thug who assaulted the coach will in all likelihood not only not go to jail, I suspect he will be chosen as valedictorian, given the community he comes from. The county held a community meeting, complete with the county commission, school board, faculty and players to cheer on their little criminals. One of the conspirators was a retired judge, who opined the meeting was illegally closed to the media because they did not want adverse coverage. Please tell me just how one could expect a conviction in that legal environment.

It's the old story; black assaults white; dog bites man: Yawn. No news there.

I complain about Obama

I complain about Obama because I don't like the fact that he is playing to big unions which doesn't help the masses, it only helps a select few while at the same time he has cast many of his supporters aside while he courts the Hispanic vote. (there are more Hispanics and as we know, many more are coming)
And then of course, his misrepresentation of the truth doesn't help.

I see you are still doing the same old stuff. "It's the old story; black assaults white; dog bites man: Yawn. No news there." No, news, are those same tiring posts that you make.
