Your Views: Corporations benefit us all by operating modern life

A few weeks back an environmentalist took exceptions to corporations. I wonder if these people know how vital corporations are in the U.S.A.

Police merely doing their job to keep us safe

In reference to Joan King's column of June 6: Dear Ms. King, I think I've figured you out! On one hand, life comprises hard cold facts. One the other hand, life is all emotional and emotion-laden judgement. Your columns are about judgments, based almost entirely upon emotion.

Suggestion to parents: Prepare kids for job market

I wanted to shed some light on something very tragic that needs to be addressed, not just by the institutions, but by the parents of students as well. I recently began helping a friend find a job here locally.

US should return to lifestyle, values that made it great

Mid 1950s, I remember them well. We worked and played hard, and then sat down to dinner as a family. Every night at bedtime, we would have our family devotion with prayer.

Times sheds a light on key issue with series on water quality

This week's series of articles on regional water issues by Shannon Casas and Jeff Gill is one of the finest series to grace The Times' pages. I have had the pleasure of working with these two a little as they prepared the series, and I noticed that they have a couple of things in common: They are interested in facts, and they avoid sensationalizing their stories. Kudos to them and to The Times for a fine job.

Students need bigger and better meals than federal bureaucrats allow

There are many problems in America that deeply concern me. That problem is school meals. The government, through the Food and Drug Administration, has ignorantly suggested processed foods be served in school meals. Are they not aware that processed foods are not healthy? Do they even care?

Many thanks to good Samaritans who offered aid in parking lot

To all the good Samaritans who came to my husband's aid when he fell in the hospital parking lot, we want to thank you. He is doing remarkably well.

EPA’s revised water rules a welcome move

As referenced in Jeff Gill's article last Wednesday, the Environmental Protection Agency has finalized a new rule clarifying which streams, rivers, lakes, and wetlands are protected. This new rule clarifies that seasonal bodies of water, those being mostly streams and wetlands, are protected under the Clean Water Act.

Ga. legislators let corporate lobbyists write, vote on laws

Well, what do you know? A reporter for Channel 11 news caught up with some Georgia legislators holed up in a swanky corporate resort holding private meetings where laws are made behind closed doors in Savannah, and also in Las Vegas, Nev., and protected by armed guards. These legislators, along with lobbyists from corporations, vote on legislation apparently to give some corporations an advantage in the marketplace.

Tell your federal representatives to vote ‘no’ on deal for fast-track trade

After every lie, every crime against the American people, every crime against the world. After opening Americas borders to terrorists, criminals and beggars. After allying with al-Qaida and other sworn enemies of the American people. After bankrupting the U.S. government. After impoverishing the American middle class. After making a mockery of the U.S. Constitution. And after way more that we can list here, both Georgia U.S. senators, David Perdue and Johnny Isakson, trust President Barack Obama to hand U.S. sovereignty over to a corporate world government.

‘Pro-life,’ ‘pro-choice’ labels don’t work with every situation

The piece by Professor Douglas Young in Monday's paper is typical of current political techniques to reduce a complicated issue to a two-word catch phrase: "pro choice" vs. "pro life."

Your Views: UNG professor’s column adds to hostile rhetoric

After reading Douglas Young's guest column Monday, I have a few thoughts to share. Dr. Young once described his role as moderator of the Politically Incorrect Club at the Gainesville campus of the University of North Georgia as that of "devil's advocate." I wonder if this concept governs the tone of his recent article.

Your Views: When the world seems out of control, time to see divine help

The planet is just about to spin out of control, don't you think? And, riding on it, we and our country are not doing much of anything to bring it under control even if we could.

Your Views: New red light is not designed to ease traffic

Wal-Mart's new store on Thompson Bridge might have friendly words "Neighborhood Market" on its sign, but "Neighborhood Racket" would be a better name. A racket is an organized immoral activity for extortion; a dishonest scheme, trick, business or activity.
