The events surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin and the trial of George Zimmerman have led me to a couple of conclusions that I think warrant some serious consideration by all Americans.
The Joe B. Sartain Jr. letter printed July 17 was interesting but confusing to me concerning action of police that pleased Mr. Sartain.
As a white male in a white culture, it is difficult, if not impossible, to understand what it feels like to experience profiling.
As members of both the Hall and Cherokee Chamber of Commerce, we are proud to support and work with our local business leaders to foster a thriving economic network in and around the Gainesville area. Simply put, we know that the work of our local chambers is of paramount importance, and that businesses continue to flock to our area because of its invaluable resources.
On July 6, I let my wife out of my pickup truck at a local restaurant. The sky had opened up, and the rainfall was tremendous. I then drove to a parking space, opened the door and my umbrella, locked the door and stepped out.
I want to thank the Hall County Fire Department for carrying me out of Chicopee Woods on July 10. I was working with a crew from the Elachee Nature Science Center in the deep woods on a project. I was unable to get out on my own due to my injuries and was so grateful to see these guys.
On Thursday, July 4, we had planned on attending a cookout and watching the fireworks. It was rained out. As a result, I watched the movie "Yankee Doodle Dandy," starring Jimmy Cagney.
I regret not having written this sooner in praise of Jim "Bimbo" Brewer, former witness advocate for Hall County Sheriff's Office. He's been splashed on front page again rehashing a small incident, albeit a momentary lack of judgment call, an instant decision to help someone while off duty. After his many years of dedicated service with an unblemished record, he was in his home, off duty, yet having to make an instant decision to go ...
Right now we have a golden opportunity that we are rarely afforded by our gridlocked political system: A true, full, broad and deep national debate on what we want as far as a balance of security, privacy and convenience.
It has been a while since my emotions have been so stirred up I felt the need to write a letter. I get a sick feeling in my stomach the first five minutes of my morning commute and the last five minutes of my afternoon commute home. It's like the feeling I get when I drive through an area that has been swept by a tornado. In fact, for a while what I was seeing ...
My condolences go out to the Goldware family, whose 14-year-old was killed and two infants injured in a wreck on Interstate 75. May God comfort you in this time of grief.
In his recent column on NSA leaker Ed Snowden, Jonah Goldberg called him a fool for the love of an idea. I wonder what idea Goldberg intended? Could it be the idea that our government should be true to the wishes of the electorate? Surely that's a foolish thought, right? Only fools would think their vote matters, and only fools would believe the constitutional will of the majority should be a binding command on the government.
U.S. Rep. Doug Collins of the 9th District has explained his rationale for transferring Camp Merrill to the Army. But he does not explain why he thinks that this issue does not deserve proper public notice and review. He is violating the basic democratic principles he was elected to uphold.
True patriotism is a Christian virtue, a Christian principle. It involves a devoted love, support and defense of one's country. It is a national loyalty.
I went to the library today and found it did not open until noon. I waited over an hour for it to open; when it did, there was a long line of people waiting to get in. In the parking lot were several cars of employees working.
A topic in all aspects of the media: Do we respect the office of the president?
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 ...
