Column: ‘Grinch’ is Alive and well in Augusta



(Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this column are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of The Augusta Press.) 

Let’s try to get into this Christmas Week without to much “humbug.” However, this is still Augusta so there will be some level of ‘Grinchness’ going on.

  1. Rest assured if Hardie says something big is happening that means taxpayers and their money will soon be parting..I can’t believe a church would have him in the pulpit preaching the gospel..maybe they pay him with 30 pieces of silver…

  2. Well maybe those hundreds of thousands of dollar in “dues” the city has paid to all those Mayors Associations he’s belonged to over his ‘reign’ have helped him snag another government job after all.

  3. The ONLY “boo boo” the RCSO deputies committed was the unfortunate timing of having “playtime” after the cuffs were applied, instead of before. The felon fired the first shot, and the deputies unfortunately did not extinguish said felon at the scene. Draw/Fire on a LEO, and you give up your right to consume oxygen. End of discussion.
