Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

IF MCG AND AUGUSTA COLLEGE merge, does the college president get two free, taxpayer-funded personal home mansions with staff or does he scrimp by with only one free mansion with merged staff?

THIS IS A RAVE to the HONEST Richmond County School District employee who found my lost multicolored gemstone bracelet in the restroom on the first floor of central office, on Dec. 6, 2011, and promptly tuned it in to the security officer at the desk near the credit union.

However, this is a RANT to the DISHONEST Richmond County employee who had the nerve to go to the security desk and claim my bracelet as her own. SHAME on YOU. I hope you get great pleasure from wearing my anniversary gift.

A HUGE RAVE FOR Pendleton King Park. The grounds look great. The leaves are up, there is no debris.

RANTS TO THE Columbia County drivers that always play their music so loud driving up the road. You can’t hear your own ears.

WHY DON’T YOU PUT Ask Amy and the comics and the puzzle all in the same section so we don’t have to play hide and seek?

ARE THE REGENTS BLIND? Putting Azziz in charge of the colleges is like putting the fox in the henhouse.

WHEN YOU PUT UP a stockade fence, don’t put the ugly side facing out towards your neighbors. Where I come from this is against all good-neighbor policies.

RAVES FOR GLENN HILLS. Principal Frazier deserves a raise for his efforts and achievements. Give credit where credit is due. He is inspirational. That kind of rare dedication gets results. Give the man some recognition and pay him more.

LEAVE THE TEACHERS alone and let them teach the children. They don’t want them to use the word slave, but they have to teach them about slavery. That’s history.

THIS IS A RANT to Bill Kirby. I look forward to reading his column, but the joke in here today is just sick. Shame on him and shame on you for printing it.

BEWARE ASU: You have no idea how bad morale is at MCG right now. Good people leave without new jobs every day. Azziz only wants “his” people in management. Existing management will be forced out. You have been warned.

The Magnolia Trace Mafia

The Magnolia Trace Mafia sought out Georgia because they could get the state government to change laws to give them their tax credits. After establishing relationships with politicians, mainly Ben Harbin, they started to look for a specific place to ply their Tony Soprano tactics. They chose none other than Columbia County and sent Harbin some cash along the way in at least one way that's known...campaign contributions.

I wonder what made them choose us? Just a lucky turn on the wheel that got them to Georgia and then to Columbia County?

Ben Harbin and the rest of his crony politician friends are gapped tooth, tattooed carny barkers for the Mafia run carnival who will tell you it's an honest game as they take your money and ruin your neighborhood. It's time for the carnival to be told it's not welcome in our county.

All this talk that we can't

All this talk that we can't find ways to keep out low income housing is bogus. The county has managed to keep apartments out by zoning only limited areas for their construction. So it can be done.

If we had said no, Richmond County would have welcomed them. So why did they choose Columbia County? Because they intend to end up selling these things when the they are able to under the tax credit rules.

The feds haven't said anything to us about keeping low income residents out of the county and I doubt they would with disapproval of Magnolia Trace despite what we are being told as a way to justify the county endorsement,approval, wink or whatever you want to call it.

The article says.... More

The article says....
More than two years after the October 2009 ground-breaking for Heritage Pine’s model home, just five houses and half of a duplex are occupied. Construction continues, however, on more houses on Pine and 11th streets to expand the flagship development of the massive Laney-Walker revitalization efforts.

I guess that "Build it & they will come" idea just ain't working forya....heh...

Oh, it was meant to be

Oh, it was meant to be self-effacing humor..not directed at TechFan.

Here's one thing I do. I file away mentally what obvious local problems are NOT commented on by local newspapers or the radio. The AC, CCNT and Austin. Of course, each one has different friends and they are not all silent about the same issues. When they begin to sugar coat things, it's really obvious.

But on the more subtle level, when they hold it down to just keeping silent on what's wrong, I'll begin to tweak things a bit until they absolutely can't stand attacks on their sacred cows.

It's really a compliment to Austin that I included him as an equal with the papers. (Still can't stand him though. Heh.)

Crime stats sometimes don't match the real world....just like votes aren't always counted....remember the butterfly vote.....tv is not always truthful...if you own the station you can make the news...yaknow....the fun the posters put on here has more truth to the news than
news casters.

About the bracelet being

About the bracelet being turned in at the RC School District Bldg., whoever stole it really violated two people. The person who lost it and the honest person who turned it in.

Didn't the office where the bracelet was turned-in to make the claimant describe the bracelet? They didn't write down the name of the person who claimed it? They don't even know what the person looked like, etc.?

I'd call in investigators because this crime violates us on a gut level. Plus, there are not THAT many people working there. This thing could be solved and someone sent to jail. To whoever lost the bracelet, file a police report.

A serious question RM....

Why are we so negative sometimes.....we all know a city needs growth..is it because we feel we don't have any say so....

There is a role for skeptics

There is a role for skeptics like us. The problem is that those who have jobs in the media, have friends or just know the public figures are hesitant to say the things we do. That's human nature and, sure, it's party due to our anonymity as some so like to remind us.

The other side of the anonymous posters v. the newspaper staff is we are not trying to seek favor in any way other than a compliment by another poster. They seek to be friends, look good for their bosses or make THEMSELVES look like they are defenders of some flowery concept.

A lot of it is just how people are. We all seek gratification. Traditional newspaper people and commenters go about it in different ways. We are actually two institutions butting heads. Make no mistake, the Internet newspaper has evolved into an institution of commenters. Deal with it.
