Rants & Raves

A HEARTY RAVE AND kudos to the administration, staff and volunteers at the Golden Living Center on Anthony Road during National Nursing Home Week. This facility provided a heartwarming program for the residents and daily surprise activities. To look around the room and see the older folks smiling, laughing and playing like children surely made this program well worth the effort and helped them forget their aches and pains for a little while.

I AM A SENIOR CITIZEN, and when I was young I worked for a living. Some of the young people today do not have to work, They are making megabucks selling pills for a living. Can anyone explain?

THANK YOU, AIKEN Regional Medical Centers, for seeing my need for admission when other hospitals would not accept me and seeing I have care at home. I am a senior and appreciate it so much.

PEOPLE MAKE TERRIBLE decisions when something scares them and for other reasons. The man who left the scene of the accident should have called 911 and stayed there, but sometimes we do make awful decisions because of fear. We need to think about this before condemning somebody.

I AM AN EMPLOYEE OF GRU and I need $37,000 worth of work done on my house. Do I call Dr. Azziz to get it done?

I AM TIRED OF foreigners coming to our country and attempting to change our country and habits to match those of the country they left. Why didn’t they just stay home? What we have is what made us the greatest country in the world.

BIG RANT TO ALL people who tie their dog in the backyard and forget about it. Why have a dog? It would be cheaper and you would have fewer problems with your neighbors.

RAVE FOR THE warm welcome home article for the troops coming home from Afghanistan. The photo of the embracing couple was sensational.

RANTS FOR THE bums who beat Wesley Spires. Why can’t they be responsible for his hospital bills?

RANT TO THE 911 operator who was more interested in getting my phone number rather than catch the two people fighting. You never sent a cop, and a woman got beaten up and a car broken into.
