Thank you to reporter Savannah King for an excellent article on Harrison Summerour, the battalion commander of the Corps of Cadets at Riverside Military Academy. We appreciate the attention to an outstanding young man and the publicity for our school, but I must take issue with the headline of the article, "Leading future soldiers," which is inaccurate.
So I was at the gym earlier and conversation turned to Syria. "What do you think we should do?" "I don't know, what do you think we should do?"
All we heard for weeks after the legal shooting of Trayvon Martin was some so-called ministers in Atlanta and elsewhere screaming for justice because they knew before the trial and without ever having attended the trial that Trayvon was murdered.
Obamacare is a premeditated disaster. Insurance will become unaffordable due to the elimination of lifetime benefit caps; the requirement for insurance to pay 85 percent of income on patient care (vs. normal 65 percent); coverage of pre-
Laws that protect animals are being jeopardized by the House version of the national farm bill.
Having taught speech communication at the University of Georgia as a young Ph.D. in that academic field, and having later served as a speech coach for decades, I welcome the widespread celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, given 50 years ago on Wednesday, Aug. 28.

The New Holland Community (Milliken Mill Village) is the home of many senior citizens and families with young children who love their quiet, historic community. The village is over 100 years old, and many people in Hall County have recent and past connections to the mill and its village.
I just recently heard about the tragic story of the young man from Australia who was murdered. He was a baseball player from that country. He was white, killed by three teens, two of them black.
It seems to me that everyone has taken their eye off the ball, to use a favorite phrase of President Barack Obama's. In the alleged "phony scandal" over Benghazi, the issue is not really whether or not a rescue team could have reached the embassy in time.
It is good to know there are still good and honest people around. When my husband got off work last Thursday at midnight, he stopped by the Wal-Mart in Oakwood to pick up milk. Being tired, he left his wallet behind. He didn't notice until he woke up on Friday that it was missing.
The America I knew - I wish I could snap my fingers and bring it back. If I could, I would put God back in our schools. I would give parents back the right to pop their kids' backsides if they got out of line. Policemen and policewomen would go back to remembering taxpayers pay their salary and would not have the right to holler "police!" after they have knocked your door down.
Are we losing the America we had revered since childhood? The America we served, fought for, and so many died for?
I would like to respond to Barbara Butler's letter on Monday regarding the cutting of food stamps. It is a shame that a veteran that has served this once (and hopefully can be again) great nation such as yourself can only receive $16 per month.
In his July 12 letter, Steven Salamon spoke about the need to have a national conversation regarding appropriate limits to government intrusion into the privacy of citizens and their communications. More than once, Mr. Salamon seemed to suggest it was no big deal.
Readers of The Times should appreciate your carrying Tom Crawford's columns, especially now that Crawford has focused on the travesty of the Atlanta Braves moving to Cobb County. As Crawford observes, this brazen looting of the public treasury by the Cobb County commissioners on behalf of Liberty Media is simply breathtaking. These guys will scream all day against socialism, unless the socialism is for their rich friends. Please call Rep. Carl Rogers and ...
The National and Southeastern Corrugated Steel Pipe Associations are responding to the Oct. 12 Times article explaining code changes in Hall County for culverts and stormwater pipes that excludes all types of metal pipe from "live streams" (perennial) and "under county roads."
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to congratulate Northeastern Judicial Circuit Juvenile Court Judge Mary R. Carden on her upcoming retirement next month and thank her for her 16 years of judicial service and nearly four decades as an active member of the State Bar.
A quote from our "constitutional scholar in chief" at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee event on Nov. 24: "The biggest barrier and impediment we have right now is a Congress, and in particular a House of Representatives, that is not focused on getting the job done for the American people."
