Rants & Raves

WHY ARE THERE NO traffic officers at the intersection of Five Notch Road and Pisgah Road in North Augusta? Many people are using the Four Seasons Gas Station parking lot for a traffic shortcut instead of observing the legal detour signs. This is a traffic fine bonanza for, especially, the North Augusta Department of Public Safety.

PRESIDENT OBAMA deserves four more years to further clean up the mess he got from eight years’ worth of Bush and his fellow millionaires.

YAY FOR ‘SAVE THE A.’ I can hardly wait for the change of name.

REP. JOHN BARROW is nothing but a district flip-flopper; he flips from district to district just to save his own job, not yours.

WOODY MERRY, THE problem with Hyde Park is more than flooding; it also involved contamination. Maybe that’s why the Augusta Commission would not answer your attempts at contacts. After 24 years, the city needs to move those people and pay them for those homes in the contaminated areas. Leaving people there in those conditions is not an ethical or moral option. Other than that unusable idea, welcome back, Woody.

I’M SORRY JOE BOWLES has to leave as one of the most fiscally responsible Augusta Commission members. But I look forward to his getting to get back in no matter what capacity.

IT’S TOO BAD parents do not enforce school attendance. They take for granted this free and valuable education. When I was first old enough to go to school in the 1960s, unfortunately I was told that I was not the right color to be able to learn things. This was after a 10-year delay honoring the law that ruled in 1954 that children of color could attend schools. Now balance today’s kids with today’s adults who so regret that getting that high school diploma where the funding just got cut for it.

GOODBYE AND GOOD luck, LaTina Emerson! I have really appreciated so much the savings I could take advantage of that you publicized. I hope your new job will appreciate your work.

SO, MITT ROMNEY thought he was doing us a favor by not declaring all of his $4 million-plus of charity donations? That only helps to make up some for his putting his money in foreign countries to skip paying American taxes.

You actually want to take that chance for the King SMNCICBHO to clean up the mess, He couldn't even clean up his 4 year mess because he is not capable and really doesn't want to.

Your the type of person that just will never learn from history!

You are also the type of human that will never be satisfied. I bet you wouldn't complain if he donated it to you!

What?

I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around this sentence from above:

Now balance today’s kids with today’s adults who so regret that getting that high school diploma where the funding just got cut for it.

Any help?

Barrow

I'm not a Barrow supporter but when they move your district what do you do if you want to keep your job? Move with it! To be honest this one is a tough decision, I find it hard to vote for Anderson based on the commercials I've seen. He has not made himself available to the public, what will he do when/if he's elected? Oh well!

Ulm Rd off Willis Foreman Rd south Augusta

This just happened...

According to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report, the 30-year-old was alerted after she heard her dog barking around 4:50 a.m.

She found a man with a skull cap and a woman lurking near the shed in the backyard of her home in the 2900 block of Ulm Road. After she demanded they leave, police said, the man pulled the sword from a bag on his back and said, “If you call the cops, I’ll be waiting on you.”

I recently asked a friend on willis Foreman about Ulm Rd homes...........for investment reasons.....kinda puts a damper on that.

Unpublished

Ronmey donated 4 million 60 times more than biden and obama combined and you folks decry that as a sham to not pay taxes and also want the charities itemized....you have got to be joking.....pretty pathetic....biden donated 350 bucks to charitie.....i mean just totally ridiculous what you folks gripe about...your beloved dems have quite a number of offshore accounts if you bothered to look

Your parents had the right idea. Some parents today aren't really up to the task of raising children like your parents were. Something should-could be done about that as well.

It looks like California (believe it, or not) has taken the step all other states should follow.
