Sky's the limit?
"If we run into the ceiling that's really bad, because world capital markets will say they knew they needed to do it and they've known for six months that they needed to do it and they didn't do it, and that casts a shadow on the good faith and credit of the United States."

We should save the DeLaigle house
I AGREE WITH Mayor Bob Young when he says the DeLaigle house is "old." In point of fact, it's a genuine relic. Mary DeLaigle built her grand home on Greene Street in 1873. It's an integral part of the Downtown Historic District and one of our few remaining intact examples of the Second Empire style of architecture.

CSRA team effort impresses D.C.
As an elected official representing one community, I often hear that the leaders of this region cannot work together. I would like to share with you and the readers something very positive. Frank G. Spears, Evans, Ga.

Shorten session
South Carolina's House of Representatives has once again passed a bill to shorten the legislative session. It would reduce the session by two weeks instead of five, as last year's House measure called for.

Ranter didn't check Section 8 facts for rental property
A caller to "Rants & Raves" stated that people who leased their property to Section 8 renters would bring nearby property values down. Sally A. Petitt, Augusta

More salary inflation
It's a rare civic center that is a money-maker in and of itself. Most of them contribute to communities' quality of life and, when run properly, spin off business for area merchants and restaurants.

Connell's legacy
When historians look back on Augusta-Richmond County they may very well define the years between 1969 and 2002 as the "Jack Connell era." Connell, the Augusta Democrat who at age 82 has decided not to run for an 18th term in the state House of Representatives, has done an awful lot for the city he loves.

Human rights farce
It was a travesty when the United States, after a half century of tenure, was thrown off the United Nations Human Rights Commission last year, and although the United States has been voted back on this year, the panel is still a farce.

Baffert has his Derby, now he plots a Preakness win
