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."

Let Augusta raises go to the dogs
I am sorry to see that Richmond County Animal Control has found it necessary to penalize law-abiding dog owners in order to raise money to keep the shelter afloat while the city commission seems to have lots of extra money for raises. Pat Roach, Martinez, Ga.

Barkley owes apology to Masters
I feel Charles Barkley owes the Augusta National a big apology. Yes, I am white, but Tiger Woods was one of the three people I wanted to win the Master's. The other two were Phil Mikelson and anyone who has never won before. James Turner, North Augusta, S.C.

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.

Stand with Hodges on SRS dumping
I am one of thousands of proud nuclear pioneers who helped win the Cold War against the Soviet Union during more than 40 years of faithful service at the Savannah River Site. During that time we produced nuclear materials for our national defense, space exploration, and medicine. Paul L. Cook, Augusta

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

Swim on, dudes
After a loud public outcry, the Augusta Canal Authority has wisely changed its thinking on the century-old prohibition against swimming in the Savannah River. The Augusta Commission will soon get the same message when the authority requests the ban be banished.

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.

Hodges playing election politics
Let's hear it again for the uninformed. Joe Nirenberg's May 3 letter is concerned that Savannah River Site will become the nation's dumping ground for nuclear waste. Tom Nicodemus, Aiken, S.C.

'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

U.S. wrong to duck global court
I am saddened by the Bush Administration's unsigning of the treaty which establishes the International Criminal Court. Royann Warhaftig, Augusta

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.

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

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

Get second opinion
For the past few years since consolidation, it seems that just about half of the Augusta Commission's time is spent hearing and arguing about wage disparities at city hall.

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

'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

Energy agency blinks
Just when it looked like the standoff between South Carolina Gov. Jim Hodges and the U.S. Department of Energy was about to explode into open warfare, DOE blinked.
