  1. Number 1. What type of stupid fool would spray paint the good bricks around the bad bricks so that more bricks would have to be replaced? Number 2. What idiot designed the walkway with smaller cut bricks on the sides when it could have been much easier and cost less to have full bricks across then the granite edging. Number 3. why is the concrete base under the edging not all the way under the granite, covering the entire surface of the granite. Number 4 Finally why did they design a “Walkway” and then allow vehicles to drive on said walkway, even to do adds for local car dealers who should be paying for the repairs.

    • Jim; my guess, considering Augusta politics, the contract was let to lesser qualified people. Somebody’s cousin, maybe minority set aside, or something else in the good ‘ol boy network. IIRC, it was Riverwalk bribery that hooked Ed McIntyre. I have to believe there were shenanigans going on for them to target him.

  2. I think if you want anything out of Hardie you’ll have to start with subpoenas and grand jury indictments..don’t forget My Brothers Keepers where it seems Hardie was the only brother keeping the money..

  3. Classy and sincere apology by Mr. Germany.

    I am still trying to understand why a sitting commissioner, especially Sean Frantom, has any input to, or control of, a county redistricting effort. Augusta politics makes me think that MLK’s dream and legacy is dead and it’s all about power, money,, control, and retribution for the past. Black voters don’t think white elected officials can represent their interests? That mentality can be adopted by white voters. Appears to be self-imposed segregation and racial discrimination without regard for ethics, competency, qualifications, criminal acts, and past performance.

  4. R E S P E C T! TELL ME WHAT THAT MEANS TO ME. SOCK IT TO ME SYLVIA. YOU GOT MAPS, DARK MONEY, BUSTED BRICKS, COMMUNITY ACTIVISTS YELLING YOU STABBED US IN THE BACK . LORDY MERCY SYLVIA WHAT’S IN AUGUSTA? I KNOW BUT AS MR. MYERS SAYS I’M GETTING AHEAD OF MYSELF .
