Put more resources into south Augusta

I've lived in the south Augusta area most of my life. I have fond memories of growing up here.

Somehow, as time has gone by, the area has gone to another type of environment. The environment I am speaking of is the disregard for the simple grooming of the area, such as regular mowing of the median down Peach Orchard Road, not to mention shrubs or flowers.

The Masters Tournament can't be here all year long. South Augusta looks virtually abandoned by society, yet we pay taxes, pay taxes, pay taxes and pay taxes. South Augusta wants one thing: respect . Put our taxes to work and get this place in order. We deserve it as much as anybody.

Getting back to the median, it is a disgrace when you see that poison has been sprayed or thrown on the grass to kill it -- hence, no mowing needed. No respect!

There is a lot of work to get south Augusta to the condition it ought to be, but with all the taxes that this city pays, a lot of work should be done.
