  1. Rick Allen stepped in, bla,bla,bla…… Look on Conservative Review and check out his voting record. Seven years in D.C. and has a score of 66. That’s an F when I grew up but it says a D!
    Anytime you want to check out any member of Congress or Representative, go there, you will be surprised.

  2. Here’s a very far-fetched idea for the place. Augusta University buys the place and turns it into student housing… AU is growing so fast but has virtually no campus housing, especially for undergraduates. It’s centrally located between the two main campuses. Again, far fetched idea but at least it would clean that building and surrounding area up.

    • I would love to see that happen. Also making the downstairs or first two floors a Conference Center as well for AU. We have the college campus, med-nursing school campus and dental school. Would be exceptional!

    • Not so far-fetched. I think the issue would be where to relocate the current residents living in the subsidized apartments. When they closed other low-income housing in Augusta and dispersed the residents, some of the crime and property neglect followed.
