Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

ALL TOO OFTEN we think of bikers as troublemakers. That’s not the case with the members of the Christian Motorcyclist Association and a handful of volunteers who have banded together to create Christmas care packages for inmates at the Jenkins Correctional Center in Millen, Ga. Cathy Johnson, a member of the Heaven’s Thunder Ryderz chapter, says this is one way to show inmates that people on the outside still care.

IT IS ALWAYS NICE TO SEE our younger generation men­tioned positively in the paper. Freshmen Jiseok Choi, Sam Dong and Hannah Huang are three such people who competed in Mu Alpha Theta’s Rocket City Math Competition in the junior division. They had the honor of being placed 15th in their division. Congratulations, mathletes, you did a great job.

A HUGE RAVE to Publix and their employees. Our special needs children at A.B. Merry are so grateful that you sponsor them every Christmas with your time and presents!

CONGRATULATIONS to Cross Creek High and graduation coach Sha­Ron Dukes for improvement in graduation rates. Continued kudos to Da­vid­son and Johnson schools for maintaining their 100 percent graduation rates. There are still too many schools in Richmond County under par, however.

I’D LIKE TO THANK the Augusta-Richmond Coun­ty Fire Department for the gift basket and gift cards we widow ladies receive every year. Thank you so much.

RAVES AND THANKS to Chrissie, who personally escorted me at Georgia Regents University when I was lost and late for an appointment.

A BIG RAVE FOR the Rich­mond County sheriff’s deputy who waited with me while I waited for my husband to arrive after my Mazda broke down on Bobby Jones Expressway. I didn’t get your name, but I really appreciate your effort.

THANKS TO JUDGE Wade Padgett. He sentenced a man to two years for killing that puppy. The puppy was defenseless, and he stood up for him.

RAVES TO ANNIE Rogers, who works at Harlem Middle School. She is kind and caring. I thank her for all she does.

RAVES TO THE “ANGEL” in line at the Grovetown post office who offered to take our packages to the counter and pay the postage when my wife had a panic attack. The Christmas spirit is alive and well.

Angel At The Post Office

I feel better when I hear about people who seize the moment and do something truly caring like the angel did in the post office. Do the right thing at the right time and you transcend our ephemeral existence. Merry Christmas to all.

Rave #2

Is this a hoax Rave? I only ask because there is a factory in Waynesboro with the company name plastered on the side of it's 3 story building. That name is Sam Dong! Now, maybe in an Oriental country that name translates to "John Smith". But that is a strange coinkidink.

I stopped making comments on this ac board some months ago. My life has been more pleasant and I've been able to go off high blood pressure medication. However, I make an exception today in light of all the uplifting raves. Merry Christmas to all, especially Myfather15.

Good Morning "Special Day" America

A MERRY CHRISTMAS To all and a small silent Prayer.

Show me the truth

What's in my heart
and what's in Yours
By your Spirit -
to lead to all truth

How to follow
how to love
and by your light
how to die

To want it
and see it
and speak it -
the Truth

As the guide to light my feet

Show me the Truth
for that is You

To be free from sin
to love

"Remember What Today Really Is"

MY15, merry Christmas to you

MY15, merry Christmas to you as well. We give each other a hard time on here and yes, you are a little out to lunch on some of your beliefs but so what? You are a productive member of society and your chosen profession serves the community and I'm glad you have arrived home safely to your family every day. My wish is that safety continues to accompany you every day.

"I think you should treat

"I think you should treat people the way you wanna be treated. Didn't Jesus say that? Also always take a favor over money. I think Jesus said that as well."
