  1. “I have served this community since 1989. I’m continuing to have my community breakfasts, and I will continue to do what I do,” Sias said when contacted by The Augusta Press. “The FBI can do what they want to do. I don’t care.” DO YOU CARE NOW?

    • Hopefully, now they will take away his access to the community center. To me, this sounds like more is coming if he is just being charged with not cooperating and getting rid of information. The investigation into the receipts and actions is just starting.

  2. The indictment just goes to show you when we think it want happen after all that time just sitting there people are working behind the scenes and now let the party begin. This might be just the tip of the iceberg and we will get more good news.

  3. Now will someone Please go remove that egotistical street sign that says Sias Lane. It’s at the entrance to Jamestown recreation center. Fairly sure it’s not an Official Lane just a sign marking his territory.

  4. Well, with Sammie potentially being moved to “Big Boy Jail” (Federal), MAYBE this Gold Cross crap will die down. With the new Fire Chief having plenty of his own skeletons in the closet, surely he will not be stupid enough to revive this lunacy. Time will tell, however. The citizens (tax paying citizens, that is), should now DEMAND a full and complete audit of spending by ARC government.

  5. Everyone that knows Sammy is not surprised. He has been bulling his way through Augusta’s government for a while. He thinks he’s untouchable and like others in Augusta’s government thinks he can do what ever he wants to. Augusta’s government is corrupt from the outhouse to the local court house. There are many individuals having sleepless nights about right now. Like the Mayor and other commissioners. Let’s see if Sammy’s attorney is smart enough to inform him to cut a deal with the FBI and GBI. Sammy if you read this your window of opportunity is short. Start with telling others ” We’re caught”
