''SOUTH CAROLINA task force tackles education." Claims poor districts should get more state money. This is pure socialism and not the cure but the cause of our present-day almost total lack of education in the system called "education." We should go back to local communities completely controlling their own public schools, with no state and no federal interference. This makes more sense regarding education and it also takes power away from the Big Brother crowd.
A GREAT BIG RANT to the person who hit a little Jack Russell terrier on Carolina Avenue, North Augusta. You could have stopped and maybe the little dog could have been saved. By the time her owners located her (after she had gotten out of her fenced-in yard), it was to late and she died. There are three little girls who are really grieving, their little hearts broken because of you. Maybe you should drive a little slower in built-up areas and you could have stopped in time. Shame on you!
ALL THE RANGERS at Redcliffe State Park deserve a huge rave. For the past few years, they've offered creative, interactive ways to learn and experience bits of history that get left out of books. They've had the actress Kessi every Christmas, antique vegetables every summer and graveyard tours every fall. Consistently challenging, fun and new ways to look at old history -- pretty great for an old house museum!
A BIG RANT TO Gary's in North Augusta. We could not enjoy our meal while listening to hip hop renditions of Christmas hymns and songs. The rendition of Silent Night was especially awful. It would have been more appropriate played as a dance tune in a night spot with bodies gyrating to the tune.
SOME PC "conservation" group in South Carolina will buy up thousands more acres of productive land and take it out of production to "save" the environment. Goodness ... is not the word.
