What is this Pink mafia business I keep hearing about all over town? Is it kind of like The Sopranos? Instead of whacking you, do they do your hair instead?
It’s funny that someone is whining about Pam Tucker. She has excelled in her career for almost four decades and will likely be retiring in a few years and you gripe that she doesn’t have a degree? Somebody just has a big ole case of jealousy.
Someone told me at the County that Charles Allen was trying to put a “goodwill” donation center in Evans Town Center. Now, that is classless… Do anything for a buck, huh?
Are you serious with your horrible “political” columnist? How dare he refer to professional police offers and public servants as “gals” and “babes” and distract from the good work they are doing? Not acceptable. His perspective is about 50 years out of date.
So this Collins fella is trying to start up yet another fraud? Where’s the GBI? Or since this guy has a record in other states, the FBI? We need to really stop these kind of low lifes from preying on any more innocents.
People are amazing. They get so angry over tiny things like people cutting them off in line or parking in a way that agitates them, but the serious stuff… world hunger… climate change… oppression… sex slavery… kids with AK-47′s in South Africa killing each other endlessly… nothing. Not a spark of anger. Sad.
With the exception of the Metro Spirit owners, there is nobody more off base and in love with themselves that himself…the least dangerous boyi in Augusta…Austin Only Famous in his mind Rhodes.
When Columbia County’s Permit and License Manager apparently misplaced nearly 1/2 million dollars in 2013 alcohol fees (they were later located in an unsecured filing cabinet in a public area) she was only demoted with no loss in pay for a $50,000.00 year salary (including car allowance). Later it was also discovered that many of the businesses did not have business licenses but did have alcohol licenses (even though their money was never deposited). Seems like this is just one of many cover ups in this disorganized mess!
I tried to warn you all about Brad Owens and you wouldn’t listen. He is a political opportunist. He was only against “The Cabal” when they left him out of things. Now that he feels like a big shot for being appointed to what is a rather meaningless board, he is singing a different tune. Now he has a seat at “the grown-ups table” and he is kissing Cabal butt.
Can’t the noxious odor, from the slaughter house on Gordon Hwy, be diverted higher up into the atmosphere somehow? I travel that section of the road everyday to and from work and it smells like someone is cooking a ground beef and dung stew! It is nauseating! Talk about a bad first impression. I’m sure the guests coming to the Masters will enjoy it, too.
Pam is the best EMA director in the state! All you have to do is look at how well Columbia County responded to the ice storm! Three inches of snow shut Atlanta and the surrounding area down for several days! Kids were stuck at school, the roads were jammed with cars that could not move, etc., etc. We did not suffer the same fate in that storm. It took a major ice storm to bring things to a halt here but we were prepared and recovered in fine form! Pam may not have a degree but experience is far more valuable than the degree would ever be! Keep up the good work Pam and ignore cowards that attack from the shadow of a key board but never show their face!
Why does the Columbia County Commisioners allow the use of the storm water fees collected to pay for the repair of a baseball field drainage issues. I was under the understanding that these monies were collected to repair issues in the public systems. My neighborhood is full of what they call storm water issues, orange fencing everywhere. Why is the storm water fee that I pay not going for that instead of a ball field?
Congressman and Tea Party favorite Joe Wilson says that any attempt to stop construction of the MOX facility is pure politics. However his unwavering support of a government project in his district that went from an estimated cost of 1.9 Billion to 30 Billion is the real definition of pure politics. Of course in politics you work with the other party so you can occasionally ask for their support for a pork project in your area. I’m sure the president knows Joe well and would be more than happy to work with him just like Joe worked with the president.
