Rants and Raves



Comments from readers:

THE MAIN GATE of Fort Gordon has become more a bus stop for vagrants then a place to egress and ingress. Every afternoon, very undesirable-looking people hang out at the gate and on the sides of the road looking like they are waiting to board a prison bus or hitch a ride. Fort Gordon, please clean up your act.

THIS IS A RANT to the city of North Augusta. There's major erosion occurring by a sidewalk at Riverview Park. It's a dangerous situation and it's been that way for a year. Why don't you hire someone to be in charge of maintenance?

THIS IS A RANT against the Augusta State University employees - not the professors, but the actual workers at ASU. The employees in the offices of financial aid, the registrar's office and the bookstore have all been rude to me. Why must you feel the need to be rude to students? I have no problems with the professors, but the employees at ASU are rude. I think you should take lessons in demeanor.

A RANT TO PEOPLE complaining about kids on golf carts. There is a great place you can live. It's called a retirement community. No children, no noise, no more complaining.

A RANT FOR the servers who complain about not getting tips. When I get good service I leave a good tip.

THIS IS FOR the person with the rant against Augusta first lady Gwen Fulcher Young. I am no fan of hers, but give credit where credit is due. She has been an important force in the Rose Society for many years, and her hard work is what made her a success in real estate. I say congratulations to her.
