'Chronicle' is a joy to read

  • Follow Letters

Part of retirement fun is traveling and enjoying new places. After retiring from the Richmond County Board of Education, I found that I was away weeks at a time. Looking back through this past year, I see that my away time totaled almost half of the year.

When I return to Augusta from any trip, I look for an Augusta Chronicle newspaper box. I buy and read The Augusta Chronicle. I find that I miss it very much. Your paper has the easiest-to-read layout of all the papers that I have picked up in places traveled. When I return to Richmond County, it is obvious that The Chronicle’s total makeup has quality that no other newspaper has.

An example of quality is easy to share. Reading your Opinion page March 5, this entire page of space has useful, meaningful articles. The two editorials “Don’t bend to peer pressure” and “Where is their apology?” are important self-esteem-, pride- and spirit-builders that we all sorely need. Jimmie Delk’s letter “Protect your gun rights” is important. And, that great columnist Michelle Malkin, who writes so well, when we need it most, tells it like it is in “The bully brigade.”

You chose many exceptional parts, including the editorial cartoon message at the top, and brought them together on one page. This made an outstanding page of concepts that we, perhaps, will benefit from and will contribute to for the good of our country.

Your newspaper is delivered to my home city of Hephzibah. So, as I close this letter, it is only fair that I get this in: When I am away, I also miss this city of good government and of nice people who live within its limits who all have the privilege of subscribing to your paper!

Again, thank you for a nice paper that is helpful and that is easy to read.

W. Franklin Boulineau

The Chronicle does indeed

The Chronicle does indeed bring some much needed balance to a world in which the mainstream media bombards us with its lefftist propaganda. The NYT and Wash Post are in violation of campaign finance laws by making their huge contributions to one Candidate and one Party. They and some of the others should just publish one paper and call it Pravda.

Isn't it charming that everything is so ducky here in River City?

Yes, the Chronicle is a good newspaper.
for us 5th graders. A big city newspaper like the New York Times, would be too difficulty for us to read.
