Blames men for high abortion rate
Dr. Ralph W. Buchanan Sr. (letter, Aug. 18) says ``Abortion out-kills two world wars.'' He is complaining about the massive number of abortions. Carl Champlin, Aiken

Wants water works on the southside
I live on the wrong side of town. We cannot have green grass, as the schools do, nor can we get water from the city, as they did when their pipe broke. What we can have is more houses. But do not use concrete for the curb. Neal Fritz, Hephzibah

Criticizes article on lawn maintenance
I was appalled at the appearance of the article, ``A Cut Above,'' which appeared in the ``Your Life'' section on Aug. 15 written by Ashlee Griggs. William C. Farkas, Augusta

Asserts shooters responsible for acts
This is in response to the Aug. 11 letter entitled, ``Blames shootings on `lies' of teachers'' by Faber Hance. Apparently, Mr. Hance believes teachers, of all people, are to blame for the acts of angry, violent, anti-social individuals. Terri Exum, Martinez

Expects no justice in this lifetime
In response to Dale Hemman's Aug. 13 letter about the way the media handled the John Kennedy Jr. death, as opposed to virtually no mention of the two young men who gave their lives for our country while serving in Kosovo: Lindsey H. Howard, Grovetown

Arena football? Go for it!
If hockey draws people to the Augusta-Richmond County Civic Center in droves, then why not arena football? Unlike ice hockey, which had no history in Dixie, football has always been enormously popular in the South.

Laughs at S.C. approach to education
The question that recent events in the Allendale school district engenders is one that has not been discussed in this forum -- i.e., ``What caused the dismal performance?'' While some would point to lack of teachers, and others might declare the causative agent to be lack of funding, its roots lie deeper. Colin B. Mullins, North Augusta

Uniforms, dress code good fit in Richmond

Says farewell as Ft. Gordon tour ends
As my tour as Fort Gordon garrison commander comes to a close, I must extend my heartfelt appreciation to the many people in the greater Augusta community who have worked so hard to further the great relationship between Fort Gordon and the Central Savannah River Area. I have often stated that I have never seen a better partnership between a military installation and the surrounding community. Col. Thom E. Tuckey, USA, Fort Gordon

Defend running of Ga. Games event
In response to the articles on in-line skating (at the Georgia Games), we feel a reply is needed to set the record straight. First, let us say thank you to all volunteers for their time and effort. It was greatly appreciated for a job well done. David Evans, Augusta

Sees flag as a symbol of defeat
This is in response to Roger P. Nelms (letter, Aug. 10): Augustus E. Nelms, Augusta

Suggests abandoning lock and dam
My suggestion is to abandon the New Savannah Bluff Lock and Dam, and let it go to the highest bidder for scrap metal to salvage steel and copper. Let the river make its merry way to the ocean. Cliff McKie, Augusta

Making probation work
The case of convicted McDuffie County child-molester Terry Lynch Mason underscores a shocking problem with Georgia's probation system. Mason, 49, after being wrist-slapped for violating his probation several times, finally just skipped out permanently. Then he proceeded to terrorize his ex-wife and children for months until he was arrested Tuesday, thanks largely to publicity generated by this newspaper's report of his sordid story.

Praises success rate of SRS projects
This is a belated response to your June editorial which, using clear eyed hindsight, was highly critical of the In-Tank Precipitation Process recently abandoned at the Savannah River Site. Don Hostetler, North Augusta

Blaze a blow to Lincoln Co.
In an awful blow to Lincoln County's economy, Crider Inc., the area's largest employer, burned to the ground the other day, putting more than 350 people out of work.

Notes obscene irony following film
I watched Saving Private Ryan for the first time last weekend with my teen-age daughters. Connie Solomon, Thomson

Wants `historic' building preserved
The Aug. 8 editorial regarding the need for larger and better quarters for the district attorney's office made some good points in favor of finding a new location. Erick D. Montgomery, Augusta

Reds will control canal
The Clinton administration's ``denial'' that Communist China is moving to take control of the Panama Canal is, when you read between the lines, less than reassuring.

The source of hope in the midst of violence
IT WAS THE only time I have attended a worship service that was rated PG-13. No one actually used that term, but at the top of the morning's printed order of worship a warning advised: ``Today's service will focus on recent tragic news events. Though the service is a service of hope and healing, some children may not know of the events or may be frightened by these events. Parents may choose to send their children to church school or nursery programs.''

Desires harassing phone calls to end
I have to agree with Gregory Topliff (letter, Aug. 17). There is not a day that goes by that telemarketers don't call. Sometimes my phone rings every 10 minutes and it can last up to two hours. When I pick up no one is there. Betty Anderson, Grovetown

Urges pet owners to be responsible
Many people like to blame someone else for their own faults. That's why I wasn't surprised but exasperated at the gall of the Belvedere resident who wants to use the ``conspiracy theory'' to throw off the real issue of the animal shelter overcrowding, and then wants those same ``conspirators'' to fork over money to fund the spaying or neutering of their animals. Get real! R.Satteson, North Augusta

Gambling crooks moving in
There are many good reasons why South Carolinians should vote to oust video poker payouts from their state in a November referendum. They include addicting many family breadwinners to the ``crack cocaine'' of gambling, encouraging political corruption, damaging economic development efforts to attract respectable business and industry, and sullying the state's ``beautiful places, smiling faces'' image.
