THE MOTHER OF A 14-year-old girl who was shot on First Friday says she is going to sue the sheriff’s office. Where was her concern when her 14-year-old girl was out at 11:30 on a Friday night?

MORE AND MORE Spanish directions and ingredients are on items in grocery and department stores, which has been annoying. But this is the last straw – directions and ingredients now in coupons! Where are the directions for use in French, Italian, German, etc.? Those people had to learn English coming here to America. The same standards should apply to all.

ANIMAL CONTROL NEEDS to start coming down on people who have animals in their backyards they are not taking care of. There are people in our block who have chickens, rabbits, parakeets and dogs. They go off two to three weeks at a time and don’t feed them or water them. That’s not right.

WHAT IN THE WORLD happened to common sense? Every single problem we have in this country today is a direct result of policies made by the federal government.

FIRST FRIDAY IS A wonderful event. Don’t let the hoodlums take over. We must show them that law and order is greater.

RANTS TO THE GreenJackets for scheduling a game on the night of the major league All-Star game, the big time that every player aspires to get to.

WHY DOES THE government allow a bank to rob people? A person has a paycheck deposited in her bank and they by mistake deposit it into a different account. A month later they say it will be six to eight weeks until they can get the money back from the other account to reimburse her.

HERE’S HOPING THAT Erica Masters does not get a cent for her suit against Columbia County. The county employee was in the wrong, but who left the door open?

A TREMENDOUS THANK you to the gorgeous young lady who chose to pay for my mother’s manicure at Classic Nails in Mullins Crossing. Your kind words, smile and big hug made her day.

A BIG RAVE TO Madeline in housekeeping at University Hospital on the 10th floor. You take pride in what you do. We can’t do without you.

Right on!

To rant #1. Totally agree.. To the mother I'd say, where were YOU when your 14 year old daughter was out at 11:30 p.m , downtown,with a bunch of people in their early 20's? Maybe DSS needs to take a look at YOU.....
Sue the Sheriff's office? What for? Because you're a crappy parent?....Wow!!

"...(P)eople had to learn English..."

"Su llamado gobierno no cuida lo que usted piensa. Desean que acabe de pagar sus impuestos y se calle."

Pressed 2 for English and got: "Your so-called government doesn't care what you think. They want you to just pay your taxes and shut up."

"...(W)ho left the door open?"

Short answer: watch the tape: Your potential rapist let himself in. Had it been at my home --even with the door unlocked and a trail of Benjamins to my bedroom-- there would have been an inquest instead of a civil action.

Lawsuit

Regarding the Erin Masters lawsuit. Richmond County would fight the lawsuit into court, lose, and pay out a serious judgment to Masters, plus court costs, and hundreds of thousands of legal fees to their contracted private law firms (a la Video X-Mart). Columbia County will apologize and settle for a modest amount; thus showing that discernment is the better part of valor.

The Worst Run Campaign

The worst run campaign has to be Scott Peebles. Not only is his campaign manager a former night club owner, but their friends attack a sitting sheriff and his wife. That around a fiasco with a group of out of town black officers using the name of a national organization coming up with a bogus endorsement.

TEE Center Now to Open in Janurary?

The TEE Center was originally supposed to open this past spring. Then it was delayed to the fall, now it opens in Janurary according to reports in the Chronicle. The truth is there are few events scheduled and the delay is on purpose. If anyone denies that we must have the worst contractor around as far as keeping on schedule. I'd like to see a story on the delayed opening of almost a year, but we KNOW that will never happen. How much more does it cost the county to have the workers piddling along for this long? That's what those looking into the TEE should examine next.

What the Congressional Debates Showed

I know many of my Republican friends on here are divided on the candidate for Congress they favor, and that's fine. Considering the debates alone, what surprised me was how weak Rick Allen was. I figured Lee Anderson would be. Sheffield came across very well and my man, McLeod did superbly.

If money is slipped to an

If money is slipped to an office holder to contribute to a certain campaign it has a two-fold purpose. It gets money to the candidate, plus it appears the candidate has the support of the office holder to a degree he is willing to give lots of his own money. If the voting public knew what all was going on, they would be as cynical as I am about some candidates.
