RANT TO AUGUSTA Commission and sheriff who do not realize that public safety is supposed to be one of their top priorities. Our downtown and Riverwalk areas could be wonderful, but desperately need more lights (and replace burned-out lights), working cameras strategically placed, and cops walking a beat, including on the Riverwalk from dusk on. This should be a priority over many non-necessary items on the budget. Don’t let the thugs win!
RANT TO A CERTAIN Columbia County mail carrier. Do your job; come to my door and ring the bell instead of just throwing the pink slip in the mailbox when I have a package. With poor work ethic like this, no wonder the post office is under water.
A RAVE TO THE Lincoln County baseball team. They get an A Plus. The Lincoln County fans an F Minus.
WITH THE INCREASING frequency of violent attacks in the downtown area, the RCSO should not be surprised when the law-abiding citizens decide not to be scared away from areas they have every right to be and start taking matters into their own hands.
SURPRISE! SURPRISE! Another violent mob scene in downtown Augusta caught on video. And as usual it happened around 2 a.m. when the bars were closing. If you want to put this nonsense to an end, the city needs to close the bars down at midnight. Like mama always said, nothing good ever happens after midnight anyway.
AUGUSTA-RICHMOND COUNTY, how many accidents have to happen at the intersection of Highway 56 and Brown Road before something is done? Or how many lives have to be lost to get someone’s attention?
FORGET THE CAMERAS ON Riverwalk. Assign four or five undercover cops (both female and male officers) to walk around and sit on benches in that area. After the thugs begin getting arrested and/or shot they will go somewhere else.
IF REP. BARROW IS smart, and he seems to be (unless he votes to tax the internet and goes along with amnesty for the illegals) he will become a Republican. He is more conservative-Libertarian than Graham and McCain. I have seen worse.
SPONSORS OF “Thunder Over Augusta” have the right to hold the event anywhere they would like, but please change the name to “Thunder Over Evans.”
