Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

RANT TO THE CITY employee in the white truck who sat behind the office of the cemetery near Lake Olmstead talking on his phone for over an hour on Friday afternoon. As bad as that place looks, and given the fact that most of the graves are perpetual care, you should have taken some of those yard tools off your trailer and actually done some work.

TO THE INDIVIDUAL or individuals in the 200 block of Walker Street who threw bricks at a passing truck: Do understand that your maker saw what you did, and you caused the property damage that occurred? I hope you never experience that same frightening event. That was one of our neighbors that you did that to.

A BIG RAVE TO all of the store employees who actually wished me a “Merry Christmas” this year.

PETA SEEKS memorials to cows killed on Illinois roads. PETA is definitely a bunch of nuts.

MY DAUGHTER IS getting married. Her dad never offered to pay anything towards her wedding; it’s up to Mom again. I hope I can keep my mouth shut when I see him there!

IF GOVERNMENT WOULD get out of the medical business, the business aspect would eventually reconcile the system and things would balance out. As with all business, it can’t run reasonably with politicians constantly, forcibly interfering, doing things that benefit only those politicians.

MANY THANKS TO THOSE who donated to the Emp­ty Stocking Fund. Your kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated.

THIS IS A RANT for the
person complaining about cute little basset hounds. You contacted Columbia County Cares, Animal Control and CCSD, with no help because they saw that you were not truthful in your accusations. Maybe the dogs aren’t the ones with the incessant barking and howling problem.

HOW FAR HAVE we sunk? Unwed mothers in color news photos announcing shows about their upcoming weddings on TV.

IF ALVIN MASON IS allowed to stay, that sets the example for Augusta to the rest of the state. Atlanta already thinks we are dumb and backward; there’s no need to prove it.

RANTS TO COLUMBIA COUNTY! We don’t need another stupid traffic circle. Why waste money when the flashing red light works?
