Why have you discontinued the NYT Crossword? I have waited so patiently hoping to see its return. #pleasey’all
Using $120 million in tax money to build a new James Brown Arena on the Regency Mall property that is privately owned by a New York company is DUMBER THAN DIRT. But, hey we’re talking about the brain trust also known as the Augusta Commission.
How can contractors operate in the City of Augusta WITHOUT a business license, NO insurance and probably pay NO TAXES WAY TO GO City of Augusta!
Austin Rhodes uses Pretzel Logic defending his NFL Steelers. While often invoking his Grandfathers honorable military service (rightly so) he rationalizes the disrespect his favorite team demonstrate to the nation his Grandfather so commendably served. The National Anthem plays. Loyal Americans stand. Anything less is despicable.
Has anyone determined which seat on the bus suits Scott Johnson the best? Oh Lordy, I guess it’s depends on wether its a long or short one.
The best part of the Metro Spirit is the Whine Line. The second best part is the Kevin Palmer response to whatever diatribe emanates from Austin Rhodes.
Jesus is black. He did not explain it, because it did not matter. God called him the Lamb. Lambs are born in stables, among other animals. Thats why Jesus was born there. If his parents werent black refugees, riding a donkey, they would have given them a room in the Inn. And why are black people still suffering today ? Because they did not turn from their wicked ways yet. Untill that day, God will not heal their land. As for White people…whosoever believe shall be saved.
Why would you tell Columbia County to build an arena? They just lost the now formerly named Evans on Ice to Augusta! So Augusta will have a new attraction downtown for 50 days in November through December. We may not get the properly cooler temperatures for as many days as I’d like but we will get ice to skate on!
Wait so a young black kid guns down an innocent black woman and all I hear are crickets? Bunch of hypocrites, yal will come out hollering if he had been shot by a cop, especially a white one. Kinda like the black guy that shot up the white church the other day. Crickets…
As a Savannahian who visits Augusta regularly on business, I’m incredulous that city officials are considering putting this proposed J. B Arena some other place than downtown. WTF are these people thinking? Parts of Broad Street are still a set from Walking Dead. Fix that s#%t by getting more people downtown!
A plus you need to think of for those groups that perform music and dancing at the Arts in the Heart is that they have a captive audience of literally tens of thousands around there. You cannot beat that amount of people who could see and hear your show as they come for the foods and vendors. And there are the expenses to set up a stage, sound equipment and other things that the groups cannot get set up just for free otherwise.
This is absolutely unbelievable, no BLM, no so called reverends or politicians are out here protesting or standing up for the rights of the black homeless woman murdered by none other than another person of color. Highest murder rate is black on black but yal don’t wanna hear that, nobody to point the finger at and hate about that.
I saw a Grovetown city employee placing political signs out by roadways for a current campaigning council member, looks like the “good ole boy” games continue. Does council member Sylvia Martin really believe that utilizing taxpayer money to assist with campaigning is acceptable?
Welcome everyone to the greatest show on earth! Right here is Augusta! Come to the municipal building Thursday mornings to see the spectacle that is drug court! Where everything is a mystery! When is the paperwork due?? Today! No, tomorrow! No, Friday evening! No, its Monday! But better not get it wrong or you go to jail!! Don’t have the money? Go to jail! Stuck in the hospital? Go to jail! Short not tucked in? Go to jail! No wonder Augusta has a drug problem.
I was unemployed for 8 months. I stopped paying bills. Then I found a job, and since I started paying bills with some type of regularity, that info was sold to 3rd parties. Now I get these annoying phone calls to buy, donate, support, and what have you. I miss the peace and quiet of bad credit.
Oh, look, another story about Fat Man’s. I thought a new editor was supposed to bring new ideas? What about hole-in-the-wall ethnic places like the TWO Korean restaurants in town? How about some of the black-owned businesses on the South side? Why not a bakery, one of the small places on Shartom Dr, or a look at the two breweries in town? Hot Foods Middle Eastern Deli and Grocery on Eve Street? The sandwich shop at the corner of Laney Walker and Blounts? No one wants a rehash of the same people every week.
As a white adult I experience racism every day, always have in Augusta, Ga. I always smile and greet people with a genuine hello while looking them in the eye. Many blacks from all age groups try to avoid being sociable. Pop taught me to give respect to get respect. I will keep trying.
I am becoming increasingly dissappointed with the bulletin that comes with the Columbia County water bill. Chairman Cross: be a part of the solution, not the problem. Our country is divided because of extremely partisan views like your own. There is strength in unity but the very definition of unity requires that we come together regardless of our religious beliefs, skins tones and subcultures.
