I JUST WANT TO KNOW how the landfill can charge people $25-$35 for not tarping their load. They sent this message in my water bill saying that it would help with trash on the road. Well, the first thing that needs to be done is to get their crews out on Highway 1 and pick up the trash. It has blown up in the trees and into Fort Gordon. The Garden City?

I'M JUST READING the paper about Mayor Young and the National Conference of Mayors. Why would anybody listen to Bob Young talk about anything? He's running a city where taxpayers don't pay taxes, the school board is paying a man for something he shouldn't be paid for, a preacher gets money for a building that's worth one-third of what's he's been paid for, the schools have no heat, crime is rampant and he has the nerve to go somewhere and talk about other issues about our city. Who's running the city? It's certainly not him. He shouldn't go anywhere and talk about anything. If they knew how he ran Augusta, they'd evict him off the board.

IT TAKES MORE FAITH TO believe evolution than it does to believe creation. Darwin didn't even know about DNA.

WHY DO SO MANY OF our service people simply detest Donald Rumsfeld? So many have told me they dislike him immensely. Do they know something we don't?

IN RESPONSE TO THE store owners who killed their would-be robbers: I'm also a country store owner and would do the same thing. People get tired of no-good bums who want to take something they've worked all their lives for. So kudos to the Dosters for doing what they had to do to protect themselves and their property.
