AS I WATCH Jay Carney, Eric Holder and Pres­ident Obama dance through the questioning at press conferences, I wonder if they are being considered for future editions of Dancing with the Stars.

THERE ARE GOOD, CARING people in this world. I am a senior citizen who fell in the Belk’s in North Augusta and passed out. They were so caring and concerned. I really appreciate all of their help. They even called me the next day to see if I was OK.

I’M PONDERING WHERE I want to go for a two-day weekend: downtown Augusta or Somalia.

IT’S VERY NOBLE of Ash­­ley Solesbee to forgive her attackers, but meanwhile Wesley Spires lies in critical condition in the hospital. The two thugs that attacked them probably couldn’t care less whether they are forgiven or not.

CONGRATULATIONS to Elizabeth Prince-Coleman for winning the $25,000 Beard Award for Compassionate Care at Georgia Regents Uni­versity. It looks like compassion is a way of life for her and the award was well deserved.

ALVIN MASON will finish off Augusta when he is elected, and we all know he will be. Now is the time to make a real change. Unite and submit someone who can defeat him.

I AM GLAD THAT THE media is reporting the crime downtown! You see most of those are very late at night, when people really should not be out there. Let the criminal elements beat themselves up at that time!

TO THE RANTER who thinks Fort Gordon does nothing for the community: If it were to close, just how many businesses do you think would survive? The only income would be the Masters Tourney, one week a year. Augusta can’t survive on that.

SO IF COMMISSIONERS want to really do something to help nip violence in the bud, they will order bars to close at midnight. Either that, or they need to levy a tax on these late night gin joints to pay for the added police officers to patrol downtown after midnight.

AIMEE COPELAND SHOULD be an inspiration to all of us. Her positive attitude and enduring spirit have helped her to fight back. Our aches and pains are nothing compared to what you have been through. May your progress continue, Aimee!

whyme most of the comments

whyme most of the comments posted here everyday are negative comments not worth worrying about. It takes a very strong person to forgive violent and hurtful acts, and the forgiveness benefits the forgiver more than it does the forgiven.

It isn't JUST the physical damage ....the costs in the hospital will be out of sight...,,even with insurance (if they have it)...amazing how fast some forget the burden a victim has to pay for this stupid & vile act....senseless --cruel--barbaric act!

Augusta has a black-gay bar......did countyman speak of this??

You know I can't recall Countyman ever plugging this business.☺

Come to think of it or any of the other NEW Adult Entertainment businesses in ARC?

OK I waited all morning and not one word?

So ARC has a Race based (black) Homosexual Club on Gordon Hwy.

Since the article is clear it is a Black Homosexual club does that mean White Homosexuals are not permitted?

Is there a Whitey only Homosexual Club?

Matter a fact can liberals even have a White Homosexual only Club due to PC issues.

Do the same PC issues apply to Homosexuals and Heterosexuals?

Right now I starting to wonder if there Liberal Sexual Racists?

Will we be seeing Black Homosexuals protesting for equal access to White Homosexuals and visa-verser?
