Rants & Raves

Thanksgiving Day comments from readers:

TO THE KIND LADY who dropped the lunch money on our table at Harbor Inn last Friday (Nov. 8) ... thank you so much. It was the birthday of my dear friend who lost her husband a couple of years ago and I took her out to celebrate her day. God is good and I will pass it on.

 

KUDOS TO A.J. at AT&T for superior customer service and resolving my bill problems.

 

PEOPLE SHOULD BE more appreciative for Operation Thunder. I am in awe for the work of the officers and the number of offenders they have caught. I’m sorry the businesses complain that they miss those drunken people who buy their liquor but they should just provide free rides like that guy in Surrey Center said he would on TV. If you can make money in making people drunk on the roads, you should have enough money to drive them home safe and sound. Also, make a donation to the sheriff’s office for the great work they are doing. Who knows how many lives they are saving from death, paralysis, brain death, etc.?

 

YIPPEE FOR LOWER temperatures. Bring on the cool.

 

A BIG RAVE FOR the Veterans Day concert given at First Baptist Church of North Augusta. The choir was terrific, as was the Lakeside Wind Ensemble directed by Jim Tau. The solo artists, Grant Blume, Brenna West and Ryan Abel, were really great. I hope FBCNA continues to have this performance every year.

 

THIS IS FOR THE woman who was cleaning the tank at Red Lobster; she paid for my dad’s lunch because he served our country. I want to say thank you again, and that she will always be in my prayers. I will pay it forward.

 

MONTY JONES, thank you so much for all you have done for James Brown Arena, Bell Auditorium and Augusta. We will truly miss you and hope your incoming replacement will do well. Good luck to you in Arizona.

 

POLITICIANS IN general and Democrats in particular want to espouse the Christian principle of taking care of the poor (conservatives with their hard-earned money, liberals with someone else’s hard-earned money). Yet they are not willing to follow the Christian law about abortion.

 

IF THE PARENT of the McBean student is such a danger to the staff and students at McBean, why is she allowed to serve as a volunteer at her daughter’s new school? I don’t believe the school board is telling the whole story.
