Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

WHY CONTINUE to post the salaries of various positions within the area on The Augusta Chronicle Web site? It does not put any money into my pocket and may just cause unnecessary ill feelings among a lot of folks. I wonder what the purpose of this practice is supposed to be.

THIS IS A RANT to Democrats. Which policy helps all people have more money to spend due to lower prices? Lower fuel prices, lower payroll taxes or weatherizing 1,600 homes? If you guessed lower fuel prices, congratulations, you are a Republican.

OBAMA IS ABUSING the First Amendment of the Constitution by wanting to take control and dominate a person’s religious beliefs.

I HAVE TO AGREE with the comments expressed in the article, “Restore old-school learning,” and that high-tech “toys” have totally taken over. But I have to disagree with eliminating paraprofessionals. They are very much needed and a tremendous help with so many students in a classroom.

THERE IS A fitness center on Washington Road causing hearing loss to its customers with extremely loud workout music.

CONGRATULATIONS to
students, teachers and
administrators of Ste­vens Creek Elementary for model performance in the 10th District.

COME ON, Chronicle. Showing a half-naked child at the burn center on the front of the Metro section? Do better.

THIS IS A RANT for the Columbia County Board of Education for allowing office staffers at an elementary school to be rude and unkind to children and parents. There ought to be a better standard for office staffers and secretaries to be held accountable.

HALF OF THESE local news broadcasts sound like they are in an echo chamber. They don’t turn their microphones on. If I wanted to watch a comedy show in the morning, I wouldn’t tune into the news.

Port of Savannah part of Obama’s budget.

Yeah, Obama has no problem spending other people's money. Besides, that is a dredging project. By definition it is shovel ready.

Are you talking about the MOX facility out at SRS?

When the night has come. And

When the night has come.
And the land is dark,
And the moon is the only
Light we'll see.

No, I won't be afraid,
No I won't be afraid.
Just as long as you stand,
Stand by me.

So, darling, darling,
Stand by me,
Oh, stand by me.
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me.

If the sea that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the Mountain.
Should crumble in the sea,

I won't cry,
I won't cry,
No I won't shed a tear.
Just as long as you stand,
Stand by me.

Can ya'll sing it with me.....sttttand byy meee....noooo I wont be afraid...

If the TEE center isn't just

Unpublished

If the TEE center isn't just for the Marriot then why are they asking for a $800,000 air quality upgrade when the one being installed meets state code. Some people are so blind. On a happier note I think there are more fast food restaurants coming...
