Did he shoot himself, or is

Did he shoot himself, or is there a criminal shooter on the loose with no description????? Good job catching the O'Reilly Auto Parts thief, now give him the proper punishment.

I guess the parts store

I guess the parts store robber didn't have much training in surviving in the woods. He might have done better in an urban setting.

I guess Baroness will not be

I guess Baroness will not be going to the H. Odell Weeks park? I know if some punk running someone over at the mall keeps her from going there, no way in the world is she going to Aiken.

colcamp1 You don't know what

colcamp1 You don't know what you are talking about. I do. I've lived here a long time and I have seen what goes on at Augusta Mall. I saw what was happening at Regency Mall, while it went downhill. I might go to Hopeland Gardens and walk around, but I haven't gone to the H. Odell Weeks Center since I observed the behavior of other parents there with their children when my children were toddlers. It wasn't worth the trip to here the same potty mouths I was hearing in 30906. I had better company for my children at Riverview Park in North Augusta. None of that foul-mouthed noise pollution. I must say, though, that I didn't go to H. Odell Weeks often, so the bad behavior might have been unusual at the time.
