Rants & Raves

RAVE AND THANK YOU to the lovely lady who stopped her car in the middle of Georgia Ave­nue, got out and helped retrieve my precious Maltese dog from the street. I also want to thank all the people who stopped their cars and waited until she was safe. I can’t thank you all enough.

 

YOU ARE MORE ABLE to walk than I am, but I see you driving those little scooters in the grocery stores. Why don’t you push your cart like everybody else?

 

OBAMA DESERVES SQUAT. As I recall, the economy was fine all through Bush’s term, even after 9/11, when a major downturn would be expected. The economy didn’t falter until the summer before the election, when Bush was a lame duck and Obama was the heir apparent. Obama did manage to add a few trillion to the deficit, however, more than all the other presidents combined. Congratulations.

 

ROMNEY? OBAMA? Give me a break. I quit voting 30 years ago when I figured out it was a matter of voting for the crook of your choice.

 

RANT TO THE ARMY Corps of Engineers and the lake levels. It looks like you have a workshop set up on Oct. 24. The article says you will discuss hydropower, water management and water safety, too. What you told my parents and grandparents before the basin was flooded was that it would be about increasing land values and recreation and family and all the good things that you don’t seem to want to talk about anymore. Just another example of dishonest government.

 

WHAT IS HAPPENING over here in North Augus­ta in our nice neighborhoods? People are parking their cars in their yards more and more. Also, cars are sitting around with no tags on them, and I know that is a code violation. Also please take your signs down when your yard sale is over or if your pet has been found.

 

RANT TO THE Rich­mond County sheriff’s department. If a patrol unit is not on a call, then it should be doing traffic enforcement. I can’t drive without seeing expired tags, no tail lights, no headlights, changing lanes without signaling, speeding, running stoplights, hearing loud music. Several times the offending car was next to a patrol car.

 

RANT TO ALL homeowners who hire cheap labor yard men and allow them to blow all their yard waste into the storm drain and cause a big problem for all the other neighbors. It is a violation, and you will get a fine.
