Aiken's runway
Tens of thousands of dollars have been spent making improvements at Aiken Municipal Airport, including construction of a new terminal and more hangars, to better serve general aviation and charter flights in and out of the All-America city.

Defender says President Lincoln was good for the nation
Regarding Milton Gresham's Feb. 26 letter, "Lincoln was bad for the nation": The writer's choice of words, selective use of quotes and use of sexual innuendo shows that he has a good future as a political attack ad writer. Galen Hayenga, Augusta

Augusta vs. Big Apple
Augusta's supposed to be a fairly conservative city and New York City quite liberal - but you'd never know that by how the two cities deal with their deficits.

Delta-style 'service'

Barkley's bite
Charles Barkley knows a lot about rebounds and foul shots. The retired NBA star forward also knows a bit about how to get quoted.

Police shouldn't smoke in uniform

'Hood man' tries to bully city
As a resident of the Ingleside Drive area, I was aghast to see the automobile hoods lined up at the corner of Berkmans Road and Ingleside Drive. Then when I read Heidi Williams' article "Residents cry foul over car-part fence" in the March 1 Chronicle, my aghast turned to laughter at Jimmy Davison's obvious attempt to bully the city into buying his land. Phillip G. Stacy, Augusta

Let's 'test' longer bar hours with entertainment district
The Augusta Commission is reviewing ordinances covering the hours of businesses that serve alcoholic beverages. Andy Cheek, Augusta

A grim reminder

Finds Drew Carey not so funny
I haven't seen anyone writing about the Drew Carey TV show on ABC, and I can't contain myself any longer. What I'm referring to is the episode that aired on Feb. 6 titled, Pretty Baby. While I am considered by many to have somewhat of a warped sense of humor, this particular program went too far. Jim Baggett, Thomson, Ga.

Black-on-black homicide should remain a priority issue
Since 1992 we've watched homicides decrease each year in Augusta, but what has not changed is the disproportionate number of blacks who die as the result of violence. Barbara Thurmond, Augusta

Ex-Olympian: Russians have long history of cheating
I'm happy someone finally had the guts to publish the story about the figure-skating scandal with the Russians (and the French judge) at the Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games. Dr. Bela Vitez, Aiken, S.C.
