Rants & Raves

A BIG RAVE FOR people that helped South Ha­ven Baptist Church secure the necessary funds for the children’s playground equipment after the $1,200 in coins was stolen from them in December. The photo of them with their new playground was awesome.

I CANNOT UNDERSTAND a parent who keeps loaded weapons where kids can get to them and play with them as if they are harmless toys. Perhaps these parents never read of the tragedies of young kids being killed.

RAVE TO SCOTT PEEBLES for being experienced (see Operations Augusta Ink, Fox Hunt and Smoke Screen) and for not serving a small group in this county but rather working for the entirety of Augusta-Richmond County.

THE MORTGAGE BAILOUT is unfair. I worked two jobs most of my life, drove used cars, no cell phone or other electronic gadgets, very few vacations and no eating out. I have almost paid off my mortgage. I also lost several thousand dollars on my 401(k), which I would love for Obama to help build back up. I suspect I’m in a different class to qualify for his Robin Hood handouts, though.

A CALIFORNIA COP arrested a man for reading the Bible on public property. If that’s not attacking the constitutional guarantee of freedom of religion, what is? Somebody needs to arrest that cop and everybody involved in writing such an anti-Christian law.

A BIG RAVE to a good Samaritan. I saw you stopping on I-20 eastbound to help a lost dog Wednesday afternoon. You stopped on a busy highway to help this dog. You truly are a good Samaritan. This world needs more of you in it.

THE ONLY WAY to lower fuel costs is to end oil speculation and force all energy companies off the Wall Street trading floor.

PERHAPS GHSU SHOULD consider changing its initials to GHSE – Get Help Somewhere Else! It would be a fitting change considering the way a recent elderly relative of mine was treated.

Hey, did anyone catch that in

Hey, did anyone catch that in today's print edition, they published comments from 3 (count ’em) of the Rae’s Gang? That's right. In print are comments from Riverman1, happychimer, and moi, all on the same day!

MEGA-RAVES to the hundreds

MEGA-RAVES to the hundreds of Richmond County public school teachers who despite pay-cuts, shortages of instructional materials and incompetent "good ole boy/gal 'leadership'," work long, hard hours to help RC kids learn.

Good morning, HappyChimer. I

Good morning, HappyChimer. I was just pointing out that they put one of your comments in Wednesday's printed edition of the Chronicle. I don't have the paper with me here, so I can't remember which one. They usually just print one on-line comment each day, but yesterday they printed one from me, one from Riverman and one from you.

Maybe I can find someone who

Maybe I can find someone who has a Wednesday paper. I asked my daughter Wednesday night while she was at work, but I did not talk with her yesterday but about a minute. she was busy with her kids, and she had school last night. LL do you have a scanner? Maybe you can scan it and save and email those comments to me? I would appreciate it very much.
