Rants & Raves

 

I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND everyone that there are many nice people everywhere you go in Augusta. On March 15, my sister and I went to the first afternoon showing of Oz, the Great and Powerful. After getting our ticket and ordering our refreshments, what a nice surprise to be told it had already been paid for. I’ve heard about such things happening but never has it happened to us. It made our day and we are so appreciative of such kindness. We will certainly pay it forward.

 

RAVE FOR CHAD AT Vision Center for his great service on my glasses. He accomplished in five seconds what I fumbled with for over an hour. Thanks for the gracious and professional work.

 

THE RESIDENTS, staff and family members of our senior community would like to give a big thanks to all the firemen that responded to our fire the night of March 17. Engines 8 and 9 did an excellent job in putting the fire out, helping residents get out and helping to rescue the pets and covering personal belongings. Our fire department put their lives on the line every time they respond to a fire ... we are very grateful and thank you so very much.

 

RAVE FOR CAROLYN, a 10th floor nurse at University Hospital. She has done an excellent job treating my mom for the last few visits. Thank you so much.

 

I JUST WANTED TO RAVE about Helms Electric. They were friendly and affordable and professional. They came out when all others in the yellow pages wouldn’t, a few even said they would call me back and didn’t. Thanks again guys!

 

RAVES FOR THE guiltless (7) Greenbrier soccer players. With all the media attention going to the players who violated the rules, let us not forget to build-up, and encourage those young men who stayed- the- course. Greenbrier would do well by highlighting them somehow at school.

 

A HUGE RAVE TO Bob and Diane Kerzner for bringing hockey back to Augusta after many years without it!!!! Thanks for the wonderful memories from the past 3 seasons!!! Now to the JBA managers and our city commissioners, fix the problem, and make sure that the ice is ready for next season!!! I would hate to see another building in the Augusta area shut down with weeds growing all over the outside!!
