SO NOW RICHMOND County bases salary on education and experience? Does that mean I get back pay for my BA in Sociology and BA in Criminal Justice? Wait, we can’t even get the 3 percent pay raise we we’re supposed to get for the past 4 years...

A RAVE FOR YOUR article on global warming or as it is now called, climate change. Since Chicago has had only 335 days without more than an inch of snow, could climate change be the reason for over 500 murders in 2012?

AREN’T THE BUFFALO Soldiers the ones who were sent out West to kill Native Americans?

BLACKS IN AFRICA are sold into slavery every day even in 2013. Millions die of starvation every year. Babies are born with AIDS. Yet the blacks in America complain about how bad they have it because of perceived discrimination and harp about slavery that happened 160 years ago. They never mention what is happening in Africa TODAY. Someone’s priorities are all wrong.

THAT GEICO COMMERCIAL with the basketball player is about stupid.

IN TYRANNY LIES ONLY failure Mr. Roundtree. Ease up. The press is your friend.

SMART DRIVERS research in private Georgia laws concerning driving in the left lane rather than braying their ignorance in public.

SLAVERY WAS BAD, but I didn’t have anything to do with it. Why is it being thrown in my face? That is unacceptable.

I LOVE THOSE ALLSTATE commercials. Mayhem can come visit me any time.

IF IT LOOKS LIKE A DUCK and it quacks like a duck, it’s not a dream trip to Washington.

WILL EVERYONE PLEASE leave Mindy McCready alone now?

WHY ARE LOCAL BLACK leaders not talking about black on black crime/violence? Are they scared? Scared of their own people?

KUDOS TO THE PERSONNEL at the GRU emergency room. Their treatment of this “classic cardiac” patient (and his wife) was beyond excellent. It is with heartfelt respect and appreciation to all who cared for us that we wish to say thank you.

GET THE SHOOTERS OFF the streets. Stop them. Not innocent people just protecting themselves. Why would you take away the only protection a 63-year-old widow has for herself?

"Harley, stop pulling our legs!!"

No leg pulling for me. Mrs. Harley wouldn't approve.

Questions About TEE Use and Events

About these thousands of visitors Margaret Woodard has said will be coming due to the TEE Center and our need for more hotels, I want clarification on the 3 "events" held so far that lasted a few hours each. The TEE people have said 20 events are scheduled through Oct of 2015. Are the first 3 events examples? I doubt they brought much money to town.

Additionally, the Morris Museum of Art had its big fund raiser gala in the TEE this past Saturday and that’s one of the events. How much rent did they pay for the use of the facility? Who prepared the food, who served the food, how much the Morris Museum paid for the food and who did they make the check out to for their function…..and of course how did the city benefit from this great piece of business? Were all of the expenses of providing the food allocated to the city while all of the profits went to the Marriott? By the way, will the Marriott get to pass off the salaries of their people onto the operating expenses of the city? See the problems when you have the Marriott intricately tied to the publicly owned TEE Center.

TEE Rental

You will not likely get answers to those questions from Morris Communications, RM. Hopefully Metro Spirit will do some investigative reporting in the coming months and years so we may learn something.

LL, another one for you. Has anyone seen any proof TR Reddy has a franchise agreement with Holiday Inn that his hotel will be one? My info is that he is trying to sell the building already and does not have such an agreement. See my comments in the business article.

Maybe black on black crime is

Maybe black on black crime is not being raised as a topic by local black leaders because it would necessitate the comparison with the numbers of black on white crime in Augusta/Richmond county. It isn't really necessary to draw attention to white on black crime because most media sources and public figures are usually quick to publicize and discuss that.

An Armyese Grammar Lesson

Army forts are not referred to as bases. They are forts or posts. (With one exception, before Harley says something.)

dear poster#11, the reason
Unpublished

dear poster#11,

the reason the "so-called" passors, religious, or community leaders turn a blind eye to black-on-black crime is because there is no money in it....how can the white man be blamed when there is more opportunity to get an education, jobs, or advancement in education or industry. look at the leaders and county dept heads what do you see??? most of the dept heads in rich cnty gov't and school dist are black.....these race pimps and phoney leaders turn a blind eye because to address it means you have to talk to your church goers...the ones who have sons/daughters/relatives/brothers/sisters, or themselves as being part of the problem. look at the projects around town what do you see???? young black females with little or no education or marketable skills with 3+ children by different men getting hundreds of dollars for food, free medical care and free housing....so why should they be responsible??? ther "trayvonn" marches by the phoney religious leaders and race pimps should be thru the projects to shame and embarrass the young residences to the point they decide to improve themselves. so as long as the "leaders" turn a blind eye they can continue to preach the "pie in the sky sermons" enabling the welfare queens, criminals, high school drop-out, and thugs and blaming the "whiteman" for all of the black community's ills
