Folks from 'round here know down-home cooking
In a place where food traditions are as strong as the tea is sweet, many Augusta-area restaurants still serve hearty meals using a basic formula: a serving of meat (usually fried or baked) with a choice of three accompaniment dishes (an array of vegetables and starches).

Mastering those senior moments
THERE IS something about this time of the year in Augusta which makes me feel very mortal, more so than usual, I think.

Wants courtesy from Animal Control
This is in reply to all the well-intentioned people who tell us the reason we have pet problems is the failure of our pet owners to spay or neuter our animals. B. Laverty, Augusta

Praises new HDTV programming
Our own CBS affiliate, WRDW Channel 12, opened its full-time digital TV programming on April 1. Ed Chandler, Martinez

Urges veto power for mayor
Augusta Commission members are able to write the laws they want, at any time they wish, and answer to no one. They are the ones who vote on any decision for the city, how to run the city, who to appoint to city positions -- things that affect our everyday life, and yet we have no one to check them if they step out of line. Michael Peters, Graniteville

Opposes Phinizy Rd. halfway house
It has come to my attention that there is a proposal to build a 200-bed halfway house along Phinizy Road for those transitioning from incarceration to the community.

Defends morality of non-Christians
In response to Ms. Teasley's question about what is wrong with Christianity, the simple answer is that there is nothing wrong with it providing one isn't trying to ram Christianity, or some version of it, down the throats of other people. Douglas Martin, Evans

Crucial N-waste bill
The nuclear energy industry, which includes the Savannah River Site, is greatly encouraged with U.S. Senate passage of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act.

Hits negative coverage of Skyfest
How unfortunate that The Augusta Chronicle chose to dwell on traffic congestion and restroom lines in its Sunday coverage of Skyfest 2000. Robert A. Young, Martinez

House right on organ vote
Generally speaking, localities are more effective at handling their problems than the federal government, because local folks have a better handle on their community's needs than bureaucrats sitting in Washington.

Blasts 'Gore tax'
Walter Williams' March 6 Chronicle column revealed the nature of our regulated charges on our phone bill. He states it is a Gore tax instigated by the vice president and two Senate cohorts -- to advance their political agenda. Carl W. Rafoth, Augusta

Insists shooting case was about race
I totally disagree with his comment, ``It is absurd to blame this on race.'' In my opinion, the only thing absurd is to push this thing off as anything else but race. Angelia D. Johnson, Augusta

Mastering those senior moments
THERE IS something about this time of the year in Augusta which makes me feel very mortal, more so than usual, I think.

Refunds lauded
We applaud Skyfest 2000 event organizers for offering to refund tickets for those who, through no fault of their own, were unable to get into Saturday's air show.

Protests blame placed on volunteers
As a recent volunteer for the Skyfest, I would like to express my gratitude to the other volunteers of the event. I met a wonderful group of devoted Augustans who took pride in their talents and gave up their only day off to work an event for our community. B. Thomann, Martinez

Gambling study fixed?
Perhaps we're being too cynical, but last week's report claiming that increasing availability of state-approved legal gambling has greatly reduced illegal gambling seems like, at best, an elaborate rationalization; at worst, a rigged study.

Promises to do better for next event
On behalf of the city of Augusta and those involved in Skyfest 2000, I would like to apologize to everyone who was unable to attend the event on Saturday. Mayor Bob Young, Augusta

Raps poor preparations for Skyfest
Could ``preparations'' for Saturday's Skyfest have been any worse? Augusta officials had been heralding this event for months (and planning I assume), but what I saw Saturday looked more like an emergency coastal evacuation than a planned event. Hal Roby, North Augusta

Chides ANIC; cites Mack record
Once again what was conceived as a program to better the housing and neighborhood conditions in Augusta's more downtrodden areas and, in doing so improve the quality of life, has turned into a bureaucratic boondoggle whose main purpose is to perpetuate itself. Robert McCranie, Augusta

A historic first for Edgefield
After two long years of fussin' and fightin' with a band of zoning opponents, the Edgefield County Council finally bit the bullet Tuesday, voting 4-1 to bring a zoning ordinance to the county for the first time ever.

Comments on Confederate flag issue
Over the past several months the Confederate battle flag issue has taken precedence in the news. This is due to a misguided mindset that the flag should not be displayed permanently on any state grounds, because it reminds flag supporters (American fighting men -- black and white) of their heritage. Greg Wilson, Aiken
