I AGREE WITH the person who complains of people who use the rants/rave section as a chat room. They clog up the section but boast of keeping the section alive. Get real. This section is for comments, not what your daily activities are.

THERE ARE SOME very loud bells that are disturbing the peace. The residents get a big ring every hour on the hour. They are our neighbors; what happened to love thy neighbor? The church refuses to turn them off or down. Several people have moved. Go to the corner of 10th and Telfair to find out yourself. Be there a couple minutes before the hour. Bring ear plugs, too. What’s the definition or law for disturbing the peace? It’s not a loud car radio either.

YES, THANK GOD for the blacks that are here to stay, such as Herman Cain, Allen West, J.T. Watts, Thomas Sowell, Condo­leezza Rice, Walter Williams, Alan Keyes, Michael Steele, Lynn Swann, just to mention a few.

I’D LIKE TO thank the person who turned in my coupon book at the Bi-Lo on Peach Orchard Road on March 9. Thank you so much. You made my day.

I HOPE THE KROGER on 15th Street will not be closed. We all depend on it a lot, and it is always full of customers. It is a very busy, very needed store.

SHAME ON THE PERSON who parked their vehicle blocking a handicap place in front of Kroger on Wrightsboro Road. It had a trailer with a wheelchair behind it, and it took up half of the road. Obviously you didn’t need the wheelchair because it was still on the trailer. It was a hazard.

WHO ARE THE SPONSORS dropping their support of Rush Limbaugh? Rush is telling it like it is.

RCBOE, YOU GAVE US seven furlough days last year. We could barely get the kids to school on time. You’re giving us 13 furlough days this year. Your drivers are right now looking for jobs. You had better hire a bunch of them because we are gone.

“A GOVERNMENT WHICH robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.” – George Bernard Shaw.

FOUR REPUBLICANS ARE lining up to run against Rep. John Barrow in Congress. So far, they all sound sensible; and in fact, anybody at all is better than Barrow. Anybody!

As far as rant #2 is

As far as rant #2 is concerned, I was in a little village in France in 2007 visiting a cousin. I stayed upstairs at this old inn above the restaurant and bar. It was Good Friday. The ancient village church that was across the street would ring the bells every hour. Sometimes I would sleep through it and sometimes it woke me up. I loved the sound and did not mind being awakened. There is something special about church bells that has stayed with me ever since I was a kid.

Good Morning Trouble, Seenit,

Good Morning Trouble, Seenit, RK and Riverman! Why in the world do people complain about such a silly thing? If you don't like the chit-chat, skip over it. If you have something to comment about in the R&R's, contribute your thoughts. It's simple.

OOps there Jake, didn't see ya. Top of the morning to you too! As for church bells ringing, I think it's the most beautiful sound. Something very soothing about them.
