Sentinel Offender Services; a modern day equivalent to the Pinkerton Thugs of the Labor Wars.

Congratulations to the Greenbrier High School softball team – STATE CHAMPS! Yeah!

I guess it is hard to believe in Creation when you have never been created.

I think I’ve figured out why Augusta is such a mean unfriendly town. Bible fascists have outlawed happy endings massage parlors. There are just no happy endings in Augusta.

I have a great idea for an APP that one of you young whipper snappers could invent. Every time your mobile device (that seems to be an appendage to youngsters ) Detects you using the phrase ” you know what I’m saying” it shocks the crapp Out of you.

Why is it that Democrats move into a Republican run county because the quality of life is soooo much better and then want to change it politically? It didn’t work for them where they came from so what makes them think it will work where they moved to?

So word is that “Scam” paid back money that he owes. I know for fact he still owes numerous local bands money. He may avoid civil lawsuits. But if the evidence shows a pattern of criminal behavior he is still going down.

It’s pitiful the way Augusta’s politicians use Veterans Day as a “photo op;” walking in their parades; making long introduction speeches before the TV cameras; sliding in to have their pictures taken with our veterans on their day of honor and remembrance. I wonder how many of them actually served in our nation’s military?

Way to undermine what little trust the American public has in the media, Billy Morris, by officially throwing objectivity out the window with your stupid Tea Party-knockoff ROAR. No one takes your politics seriously. Everyone knows that your God – and President – is money.

Are the Facebook businesses spun by crafts and such run by the rich wives in Columbia County required to procure the same licenses and permits that any other business is required? Are in home businesses tax exempt? I wouldn’t say that’s realy fair competition to a brick and mortar store. I’m not against free enterprise but is it fair to the business that are paying the proper fees?

Your paper named my rescue as having made quotes in an article on Cam. I am the owner of SOUTHERN SOULS RESCUE and myself nor my rescue never makes a practice of fetting in the middle of putting someone else down for any reason. U obviously dont check your sources and that can lead to bad reporting and also a lawsuit.

Saturday night was cold wasn’t it? I thought so until I got the call shortly after midnight that a sudden illness struck my future Daughter-in-law’s Dad and he wasn’t expected to make it through.the night. Tragically he didn’t. Remember when you had everybody in your family still here? Did you treat them right? Did you remember to call? Were you thankful, grateful, for the time together?Bitterness and bickering, negativity and neglect, it all has to stop. Trust me-your Life can’t take much more of it…but Death will take it all!

Okay, I gave everyone a week to come up with the answer to the whine line question 2 weeks ago concerning the elderly African American gentleman who, on any given day, could been at Walton Way and 9th streets swinging his pocket watch on a long chain. His name was Columbus McNeal. I read the same article as you did decades ago in the Chronicle, but on searching archives I failed to find the article, I mean it WAS decades ago, possibly 35-40 years, on a true local character. However, I must correct the questioner concerning Mr. McNeal’s choice of attire. He did not, thank goodness, wear a leisure suit. That was for dufus white guys with tightly curled permed hair. Rather, he wore a purple zoot suit most of the time, quite a flashy dresser. You’re welcome.

Seriously ? I was surprised to hear the KKK is activating it’s members for who cares what. The KKK still exists ? Their members must be the people collecting foods-tamps, section 8 and welfare checks. In a time when people have two jobs, children’s schoolwork, cooking dinner, music and dance class, baseball and soccer practice, who has time for KKK ” raise your blood pressure ” meetings every Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 PM to 8:30 PM and Sundays all day ?

Many of us Canadians are confused by the U.S midterms elections. Consider, right now in America, corporate profits are at record highs, the country is adding 200,000 jobs per month, unemployment is below 6%, U.S gross national product growth is the best of the Organisation for Economic Corporation and Development (OECD) countries. The dollar is at it’s strongest levels in years, the stock market is near record highs, gasoline prices are falling, there is no inflation, interest rates are the lowest in 30 years, U.S oil imports are declining, U.S oil production is rapidly increasing, the deficit is rapidly declining, and the wealthy are still making astonishing amounts of money. America is leading the world once again and respected internationally- in sharp contrast to the Bush years. Obama brought soldiers home from Irak and killed Osama bin laden. (the little brother of Salem bin laden, Bush’s business partner) So Americans vote for the same party that got you into the mess Obama just dug you out of ? This defies reason. When you are done with Obama can send him our way ?

So the priviledged, spoiled rotten, tennis-playing, upper-middle class, woman of leisure Jenny Wright has the nerve to complain that a fast food worker, living on the edge and working a lousy minimum wage job, fails to display the proper customer relations skills? And calls this member of the working poor a “habitual complainer”? Really? What a classic case of subconscious psychological projection on the part of this insufferable wine-sipping snob!

I have worked for the Augusta Chronicle selling papers on Sunday thru a hawking business for almost ten years. The old supervisor did not renew his contract. There are new hawkers for the Chronicle and they suck. For almost ten years I sold papers on Sundays on the corner of Lumpkin and Richmond Hill Road. I went out there and waited on the guy who was suppose to drop me the papers to sell. First week did not show up. Showed up the second week after being almost three hours late. Third week, did not show up again. I called the fourth week asking him would he be showing up today at my spot, he said no and my services were no longer needed because he waited and waited and I did not show up. Unless he started out at 6:00 in the morning, he never showed up at my location at all. So this is to the Augusta Chronicle and Morris Communications…. it is a total shame that I sold papers from your company for almost ten years and the new supervisor is treating me like poo when I talked with him over the phone. The location that I was at was a hot location for selling papers on Sunday. I lost money, time, and customers because of this new guy. I am always on time to my site. I suggest that you get another supervisor or there will be others that will either quit or get fired because of him.
