Rants & Raves

RAVE TO RICK MCKEE for the cartoon on July 14 illustrating Secret Agent Barack Obama.

TO THE PERSON who wanted to publish the names of all the people who give money against the president: I would like to see all the names of people on welfare and Section 8 published. I would like to put some shame into all of those people who are stealing money from all us hard-working people.

RANT TO THE deteriorating morals and neatness I witness on television and everywhere I go. Disgraceful females have allowed fashion and style to dominate their lifestyles rather than neatness. Their modernistic hairstyles look worse than the head of a mop and usually cover one or both eyes and are a safety hazard, especially while driving.

ON JULY 16 at 4:50 p.m., my wife’s leg gave out at the second-floor elevator at University Hospital. I was really surprised at the number of people who showed up and assisted us. Anybody who has anything negative to say about University Hospital, don’t say it in front of me.

I WOULD LIKE to know if you think it is right to call yourself a preacher if you lie, call your wife bad names and if you do drugs.

THE CHRONICLE IS so sexist. You will frequently give scores for the men’s games but not for the women’s game. Today, July 17, the men’s Olympic team played after the women’s team, but the men’s score was in the paper and the women’s was not. Typical.

I JUST CALLED Home­land Security to report illegal workers building houses in Columbia Coun­ty. They told me that they need their name, address and age before they can investigate. I told them I can’t give them that information because they don’t speak English.

RAVES TO THE Augusta-Richmond Library for hosting Carmen Deedy! It was exciting to spend an hour with the renowned storyteller and children’s author.

THE JULY 12 STORY on Easter Seals brought back some good memories. In a rough time in my life, when I had trouble getting out, someone suggested Easter Seals’ workshop, where I was given tasks for minimum pay. But in being with others and getting out, I was able to improve. Now I try not to forget Easter Seals in my donations. They didn’t forget me.

By election day I'm reduced

By election day I'm reduced to throwing out mindless slogans. Forgive me. I feel like one of those people waving a sign just before you get to the polling place. Does anyone actually think that changes the mind of voters?

Don"t Vote!!

If you don't have a clue about the candidates and/or issues. Do the rest of society a favor and just stay home if all you can see is D, R, or skin color.

RM, it would have to be a new snake and a new "lady". The original one is probably too old now and makeup and tattoos will not hide that problem.

Falconsgirl, I wouldn't be surprised if the Snake Lady isn't given a job answering the phone if y'all win. Call the club and RCSO at the same number...(rm said)

Jobs for snake ladies....get them off the unemployment line..

Liquor Stores

Years ago I think liquor stores were closed on election day. I don't know about primaries, maybe just the "big one". I don't know about these days. You can probably guess the answer though.

I just saw Scott Peebles at the aquatic center. Blew my horn. He may have thought I wanted him to move. No so! That was for good luck and two thumbs up. You go Scott

Great America

Done did my Civic Duty, pulled a Republican ticket and voted. I would never vote Demcat even if a member of my family was on the ballot. I know politicians are crooks but at lease when I vote Republican, I'm voting for a Crook with a little bit of common sense.

I remember when certain

I remember when certain people said the TEE Center would attract 'zero' events.... Now the number is up to thirteen, and the building is still under construction.... It's amazing somebody who lives in Columbia County is so worried about the events coming to the TEE Center, but never mentions the exhibition hall at the Gateway in Grovetown... What events are coming there??

The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association is definitely considered an 'national' event.... Before the last event was added to the TEE Center.... The impact of the twelve events under contract was 10k visitors and $7 million impact...

Were not even mentioning the private construction taking place downtown because of the TEE Center.... I'm sure the Regency Inn on Broad turning into Holiday Inn Express is because of the TEE center..

http://chronicle.augusta.com/news/business/local-business/2012-06-04/19t...
The building’s location at the corner of Broad Street and James Brown Boulevard was a significant asset, Robertson said, especially in light of the expected completion of the Trade, Exhibit and Event Center later this summer.

http://www.wrdw.com/home/headlines/250K_Georiga_cities_loan_to_fund_new_...
Allewelt is relocating New Moon Cafe to the old J.B. Whites building. There are luxury condos upstairs. "This is a great opportunity. We need more space," she said. "And there is a conference center about to open a couple of blocks away. That is a no-brainer." You can spot the TEE Center parking deck, the latest addition to the Augusta skyline, from one of the 41 units now available to own.

Snake Lady in retirement? I

Snake Lady in retirement? I thought I was the snake lady ... oh wait ... that's right ... I'm the BATCRAP crazy "SNAKES IN THE HEAD" lady! I always get confused. Hahaha

CGee ... I pulled a republican ballot today too my friend ... of course I live in Columbia County so there is not a contender for our great Sheriff. The last one who tried to unseat Clay Whittle got kicked to the curb like a whooped little puppy. It just shows that money cannot buy everything nor everybody.

TEE Center =13

TEE Center =13 events
Exhibition Hall= 0 events

I think we can clearly see what facility will have to rely on local events and family reunions... There's a problem when you're trying so hard to put down the building that's actually doing something, compared to the one which is doing nothing at the moment...

12 events at the TEE Center equal 9,800 people and $7.2 million...

It's funny how people continue to try and call out things in Richmond County... The same people bring up the Costco incentives, but never anything in the county were they live....

Countyman, how many people is

Countyman, how many people is Home Folks in West Augusta bringing into town? Are you counting them as part of your 9,800 visitors. The problem is you don't consider those people who already live here who attend these little events and go home. You are counting on each visitor spending 700-800 dollars as if they were staying in the Mariott and eating in town, etc.

The TEE tried to book events for 2012 but when they had no takers, construction stragely slowed down to almost a year later. Let's all be honest here.

I don't think the Columbia County facility ever said it was going to bring in outside events, etc. It's not that kind of building.

By the way, the American

By the way, the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association is scheduled for Oct of 2015. When are the other events, next year or much later like that one? So we are bragging about 12 events scheduled over the next three years? Some of them local. Seriously?

I renewed it

Yep, I renewed my right to complain about any politician or issue. It was a simple process and took maybe 10 minutes. For those of you who do not think it is important to vote, kindly keep your mouth shut on all things political.
