Comments from readers:

NOW THAT SO MANY events are moving from Augusta to Columbia County, why don’t the GreenJackets move there? We the people of North Augusta do not want the GreenJackets or that stadium over here in our city.

RAVE FOR Deputy Miller of the Columbia County Sheriff’s Depart­ment! He went above and beyond when someone backed into my car. He was courteous, professional and thorough.

HAS ANYONE NOTICED that after President Obama gives a speech the next day he is either on vacation or out giving his political speeches? How often has any one seen him in his Oval Office actually doing his job?

SO, MUSIC EDUCATORS have been right all along. It is the best mind trainer of all. Proof, both Richmond and Columbia County STAR students are musicians in avocations. Me too.

WE IN THE USA need our federal government. We need their rules and regulations because they truly are in the best interest of all Americans. We would be better off having a totally 100 percent federal government.

RANT TO BLACK community members for bringing up things in the past when we can’t control it. I don’t understand that. Rave to the black community members who don’t dwell on the past.

WITH ALL OF the great plays to choose from, I am disappointed that the Augusta Players chose one about a gay drag performer.

SHERIFF ROUNDTREE getting a raise right after he took office is as much deserved as Obama’s getting the Peace Prize right after he took office.

EVER SINCE Leon Panetta took over as defense secretary he has been saying that the Taliban forces have been degraded and we have them on the run. Now we find that the statistics he was basing his assessment on were inaccurate. By the way, don’t expect Panetta to come out and say he was wrong.

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE on welfare and food stamps has to take a drug test.

RAVES TO OFFICERS Patterson and Lofton of the Harlem Police Department. They are wonderful officers who care about people.
They helped me as I was walking. May God bless them.

To the poster that we need a 100 percent fed gov..

The fact that you actually exist scares me.

I though people like you, were the delusions of Extremists and Paranoid people headed for the funny farm.

#4, Music

I agree that music is a good discipline for the mind. I have seen the results in my children and their friends. In this age of digital/visual overload, it is good to see young students taking time to do something with their time that is rewarding.

#1. And you know that how?

#1. And you know that how? AFAIK there has been no straw or official poll taken of the people of N.A.

#4. If I am not mistaken, music education is compulsory in parts of Europe. I also believe that I read somewhere that music education improves math skills. I couldn't carry a tune if my life depended on it, but I wish I had the opportunity to try when I was young.

#5. There are countries that have that. Delta is ready when you are, but I don't think you will like it.

Good Morning Awguster

North Awguster doesn't want a professional sports team. Praises for local LEO'S. Is that the theme from "The Twilight Zone" I hear in the background?

I wonder if guitar and fiddle

I wonder if guitar and fiddle playing of country music makes you smarter too? I suspect it just makes you smile and not worry about things so much.

Uncle Sy just makes me laugh

Uncle Sy just makes me laugh so much because he is so real. No actor could do him justice. But to combine subjects for a moment, you won't see trespassers on Robertson land. Sy would blow them up like he did his old truck. The public should realize almost all land belongs to someone and shouldn't use it for anything without permission.

Maybe that's why European music is so crappy.

Good Morning "2016" America

So Rant 3, what's the big deal? He wasn't even in the Oval Office when he allowed the murder of 4 Americans. The Hammer & Sickle Man's job description has only 2 requirements ** Eliminate Republicans and Destroy America ** Period!

Opening Song on Duck Dyn

I hear that song played in other places. This show is so popular. The hour long Christmas special became the most-watched A&E episode in the network's history, topping shows like CBS’ Survivor, ABC’s Nashville and Fox’s The X-Factor.

Speaking of Quacks.

"We need their rules and regulations because they truly are in the best interest of all Americans. We would be better off having a totally 100 percent federal government."

This is the kind of voter you get when you have too many people on welfare, food stamps, and Section 8. If this doesn't scare you then you must be one of them.

Dale Murphy

The braves are gonna have a Dale Murphy day this summer.
He was my absolute favorite baseball player.
Good guy, clean cut and a good role model for kids.
I don't follow baseball like I use to, never use to miss a game.(Braves)
Can't really name many players these days.

R & R #5

Are you crazy? If that is the way you feel, move to Russia, N.Korea, Cuba, anywhere, just go! Only someone just like obama, pelosi, reid, etc., would say what #5 said!(no wonder America is broke and between a rock and a hard place!)
