I love the twice weekly trash pick up. It is one of the many nice perks of living in Augusta.

Suggestion to 07/24 Viewpoints caller:  Why don't you start your own trash collection business and disprove the findings of Tulsa's year-long pilot program involving more than 1500 families, showed that once-weekly trash collection yields meager savings compared to twice-weekly?  Or you can call Brian Barber, Tulsa World Staff writer, at (918) 581-8322, who wrote many of the articles.    You can search on 'trash pilot' at tulsaworld.com. But sadly, a fool will not learn from the experience of others.

Our country is in a recession.  Times are tough, especially for our elderly.  Many people haven’t recieved a raise in years -- cost of living or otherwise.  It’s so nice to see that our school district administrators receive more pay each year.  Now we have a Deputy Superintendent to go along with the Assistant Superintendent and Superintendent.  How many bosses does one school district need?

What the heck is a Deputy Superintendent?

I think it is a disgrace the way the old hospital looks at the north end of town.  Why isn’t something done about that?  It is really a blight on the view at the north end.
