Newspapers shine light on lies
Regarding T. Walton's May 4 letter: His or her college degree did not include an understanding of the function of the editorial pages of a newspaper.M. Don Williams, Augusta

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."

Historic Augusta home should be preserved, not abandoned
Thank you for your "Not so fast" editorial of May 4. Kevin DeLaigle, New York

Lights more annoying than kids
Regarding Ken Oglesby's May 9 "Swim at your own risk" letter, the new lights shining all night long that have been installed at the old pumping station are much more annoying than any group of kids swimming in the river. George Stickler, North Augusta, S.C.

Proposes a river 'swim-in' event
It seems the Savannah River has become the "River from Hell," and has thus been deemed off limits to the innocent citizenry of Augusta. Alan W. Trisler, Augusta

Newspapers shine light on lies
Regarding T. Walton's May 4 letter: His or her college degree did not include an understanding of the function of the editorial pages of a newspaper. M. Don Williams, Augusta

Member of DeLaigle family urges preservation
My family's homes have been on the wrong end of the wrecking ball in the past. In the 1950s a historic DeLaigle home and other historic structures were torn down to make way for Augusta's downtown super highway. An Augusta Chronicle article, dated Sept. 24, 1956, describes the home. Pam Sharp Cray, Daughter of Virginia DeLaigle Sharp Granville, Ohio

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.

River provides relief from heat
In response to the city's ban on swimming in the river and the canal, I agree wholeheartedly with Ruth Ann Oglesby's May 1 letter. As a young boy, I grew up in National Hills and spent many a day at the canal and river, as well as in the canal and river. Lee Muns, Martinez, Ga.

Plutonium shipment like 'The MTA'
Gov. Jim Hodges, D-S.C., has made a demand for an ironclad agreement on when the plutonium will leave South Carolina before shipments to the state can begin. Gene England, Aiken

Regional races could be humdingers
The race for the new District 12 congressional seat became more interesting last week with the sudden departure of Republican candidate Cleve Mobley of Waynesboro, who had raised a big enough war chest to mount a credible campaign but hadn't gained the toughness or savvy to be ready for political hardball.

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.

'Imitation hick' speaks his mind
I admit I'm just an imitation Southern hick, having lived here for only 12 years. And while I admit it has taken a while, I wonder if I made a mistake moving here. Thomas D. Kohli, Augusta

Base pay hikes on performance
Raises in the 50 percent range for city of Augusta's top bureaucrats seem obscene with unemployment at 6 percent and tax revenues tanking. Tom Zwemer, Augusta

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."

'Chronicle' moves away from values
In your April 18 editorial, "Victimless porn," supporting the U.S. Supreme Court's unfortunate decision on virtual child pornography, you stated: "Since no actual children are used in these pornographic scenes, there are no child victims whose rights have been violated." David Sisler, Augusta

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

Mom's Day Grinch
The beloved Barbara Bush - wife of one president and parent of another - is to Mother's Day what The Grinch is to Christmas. She hates the commercial hoopla surrounding the annual mid-May celebration, telling Newsweek "It's a big rip-off, you know that."
