FOR THE PEOPLE who live with someone for sexual purposes, then complain about them and their actions after moving out: You should not live together for sex without marriage. See what happens when you break up and move apart?

I’M A SOUTHERN Baptist and I don’t like the name change at all.

GOODNESS, BILL KIRBY. Your Monday Feb. 20 column is the complete opposite of what could help our Augusta Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau. Can’t you think of anything positive besides the Masters? How about a postcard of the Augusta GreenJackets? A postcard of the RiverHawks team? A postcard of your top 5 favorite eateries? (In Augusta).

You owe us a postcard, Bill.

A RAVE TO THE kind gentleman who brought us the beautiful red roses. Augusta Gardens’ residents are thoroughly enjoying them. God bless you for your gift and the smiles it has brought our residents.

THANK YOU, THANK you to the kind gentleman who bought our lunch last month at Harbor Inn. Your kindness and thoughtfulness were so heart-warming. May the Lord bless you tenfold for your kind heart.

WHAT’S UP WITH folks who don’t wash their hands? It’s especially bad when you work in the medical district and you see folks doing this. Soap and water can be found all over the hospitals and nearby buildings in our area. Use them. I don’t want your germs. Also, if you really can’t get to the soap and water, hit that bottle of sanitizer they have pretty much at every doorway. Simply disgusted.

WITH A GALLON of gasoline heading to $4 and beyond, it’s time for President Obama to step in and propose a gas stamp program similar to the food stamp program to help us be able to get back and forth to work. The government needs to provide us with 12 gallons a week.

I AM A PART-TIME cashier at an Evans retail store. Please have some courtesy and stay off your phone when we are trying to help you. It is rude. If you have to talk on them, do it out of the store.

RAVES TO THE Lakeside Middle School student who demonstrated bravery in reporting the actions of the Charlie Rape Gang. He is truly a hero who shows that one person can make a difference.

morning all gas stamp?

morning all

gas stamp? really? you cant use your welfare money to pay for your own gas? suddenly we should be expected to pay for your gas as well as your food? sad thing is, there are those out there who will think this is a great idea, and next thing you know, they will be forcing us to pay for this too.

part time cashier, agreed, there i nothing i hate more than customers who expect you to wait on them when they are talking to someone else on the phone, if you cant give me your attention, dont expect me to give you mine, there are other things i could be doing besides standing around waiting for you to decide to talk to me.

ok, one more comment about

ok, one more comment about the "gas stamp" program...

12 gallons......thursday when i put this amount in my truck, it cost me 45 dollars.

the ranter wants this so that they can "get back and forth to work".....honey, i hate to be the one to break this to you, but if you work, you will not qualify for it anyways......entitlement programs like this are designed for people who dont want to do anything to help themselves.

Agree, T. Gas would be less

Agree, T. Gas would be less if we had the right leadership in the White House and Congress. We need refineries and we need drilling. How ridiculous is it to condone China drilling in our backyard but keep us from doing it because of environmental concerns??? How ridiculous is it to hand money over to green energy companies who have not yet arrived at a point they can compete and stay alive? That is taxpayers' down the drain, or was it just a matter of political payback that was so ill-advised?

By the way, ranter, With A

By the way, ranter, With A Gallon, you do understand that our government does not have the ability at this point to pay for those gas stamps. They are currently running up a huge charge card without the means to pay it off. Now if you did that, you know what would happen, don't you?

When gas stealing is going on, times are tough. Heh. Maybe we can use that against Obama for the election somehow. Come up with a phrase about people siphoning gas.

I wonder what happened to

I wonder what happened to that guy who used to post a good bit, jet ski on the river and had some kind of crime prevention website? It was something about giving rewards for giving info to solve crimes. He had several screennames. Remember him?

Oh, about the handwashing rant. I wonder where they observe people not washing their hands? Bathrooms? Somewhere else? I'm just curious. I mean how would you know that?

SeenIt, oh quit showing off. I could tell you stories along that line, too. I like the other site(s), but this is more immediate. Although I'm on the same page with THEM in our goals, it would take too much work for me to write there as I told them. I admire THEIR hardwork.

Now wait a second about the

Now wait a second about the handwashing for those in medicine. I believe the standard is to wash hands after seeing a patient, not just before touching a new patient. But if that is the case, I suspect they wash their hands just before the new patient comes in the office because the touching starts almost immediately.

How the liberals are spinning

How the liberals are spinning this 'contraceptive mandate' is almost comical. Free birth control for all females, paid for by the taxpayer.

I thought Planned Parenthood and health departments already provided
'free' stuff for women. Why does contraceptives and abortion have to
be added to insurance programs?

Since its an election year a 'gas stamp' program could be proposed by
Obama to garner a few more votes?
