Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

YOU HAVE TO HAND IT to the World Changer volunteers and the great work they have been doing in Augusta. These South­ern Baptist teens from a number of states volunteer to spend a week of their summer doing acts of service transforming homes here in Augusta. What they are doing is certainly appreciated by all of us in Augusta.

RANTS TO WHOEVER decided to put the nonsensical “crowdsourced” section on the Sunday opinion page. None of the comments make any sense.

AUGUSTA RICHMOND-COUNTY is either going to be a Greenville or a Detroit. Personally, I think its current leadership and those aspiring to leadership will seal the deal for a Detroit. The best thing you can do is get your investment out before you lose what you have left.

TWO HUGE RAVES. One for the University Hospital ER staff. Top to bottom, they took great care of a family member. A second rave for the pharmacy staff at the 24-hour Walton Way Walgreens for taking great care of a new customer.

A BIG RAVE to Charley at the Fort Gordon post office. He is the singing postman, and while lines are always long, he entertains the soldiers and civilians alike, singing the oldies. Always pleasant and makes the wait not so bad!

OUR NATION is in debt $16 trillion. We have troops stationed in over 100 countries. We’re going to give amnesty to upwards of 11 million invading illegal aliens, and now Sen. Lindsey Graham wants us to enforce a no-fly zone over Syria. Does anyone else see a problem with this?

PEOPLE, THINK BEFORE you crazily chase an officer who is going fast without lights or sirens. They could be responding to a call where someone’s life could be endangered by sirens and lights. For instance, if I managed to make a call about a break-in at my home with one or more persons wandering around with who knows what weapons, do you think I want one or more panicked burglars to then starting shooting around or setting off an explosive because they realize law enforcement is closing in on them due to MY call? Think, people, think!
