Kind of ironic that someone who has embraced David Duke and has been one of the biggest defenders of Augusta commissioner-elect John Clarke, despite his profanity-laden racist Facebook posts, is now calling Daniel Martin a racist who unfit to serve on Blythe’s city council.
Damon Cline’s article in The Chronicle on April 4, 2018, “Parking Woes Will Only Get Worse”, points out the main reason NOT to put the new JBA at the same location. The Civic Center couldn’t handle the parking for the recently sold out Guitar Jam with 6,500 patrons. How in the world does the anyone think it can handle a new arena with 10,000-12,000 seats? An on-site parking deck is the only solution and that would add $60 million to the already hefty price tag of $100 million plus.
While I am no great scholar and was not an english major buy any means; if letters such as Mr. Thomas’s are to be printed perhaps The Metro Spirit would consider a humor section. There were some good points in Mr. Thomas’s letter, it was a shame it was a little hard to follow. The Chronicle does a good job of butchering the english language on a daily basis, albeit some articles are from the venerable AP.
To the writer of “The Insider.” The article about the “national magazines give Augusta some love.” Evidently, they haven’t been down on East Boundary, the Harrisburg area, Gordon Highway, Lumpkin Road or South Augusta. How about contacting these magazines, take them on a tour of these areas, the provide their input about these areas? Then I would love to read your next column, and that this has happened. Guess I’ll be dead before then, because this will never happen!
Hey, local TV weather people! Unless you’re expecting a hurricane or tornado, we don’t need a weather report every three minutes during a thirty minute news broadcast! Once or twice is enough. Thanks!
This MAGA thing by trump; This country has never NOT been great, and it still is great in spite of the actions of the person in the white house.
