Rants & Raves

DON’T WORRY ABOUT overweight deputies. You need a skinny deputy to run down a suspect, but you need big deputies just as much. They can break a door down and sit on the guy who is fighting with his wife.

 

I DO MEDICAL transport. Please spare the tickets to medical transport people who are taking patients. Tell them thank you.

 

I AM A WHITE, disabled senior citizen. They have terminated my food stamps and are taking their time reinstating them. If I was young, black and had 10 children they would help me right away. But they won’t do a thing for me.

 

PARENTS, YOU EITHER teach the children the right way to go or you let them go and they will end up on drugs, dead or in prison.

 

IN COLUMBIA COUNTY you can pick your own garbage disposal company and it isn’t in your tax bill. If that isn’t a better way, I don’t know what is.

 

HELEN BLOCKER-ADAMS needs to go somewhere and hide. She is ruining the chances of Alvin Mason becoming mayor.

 

FIVE ILLEGAL ALIENS arrested in Columbia County on drug trafficking charges. It’s too bad we can’t send them to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s office in Washington, DC. I’m sure he would welcome them all with open borders – I mean arms.

 

IS IT LEGAL TO ride a bicycle on busy roads? Yep. Is it legal to go for a stroll on Augusta’s East Boundary at 2.30 a.m.? Right again. And your chances of survival are about the same.

 

HOW IS IT THAT the Richmond County School System is “broke” and all but two board members recently voted to hire a firm to tell them how to hire the right people? Isn’t that why they have a Human Resources Department (with the director making more than $100,000)? Sounds like a duplication of efforts to me. And they wonder why morale is so low.

 

HUGE RAVE AND thank you to the young woman in a pink T-shirt (Kim, I think she said her name is) and the couple loading their car at the Knox Avenue Wal-Mart on May 25 for helping me find my silver Honda. It was on the next row.

 

WHY IS A CAR THAT sounds like a very loud motorboat allowed on our streets here in south Augusta all times of the day and night? I thought a loud muffler like that was against the law.
