Consider that earth changes on its own beyond climatic factors

A Reader's Digest article on rising sea levels is scary, scary because it is misleading and does not include many factors. I could not find in the article any figure citing worldwide rising sea levels. Rising sea levels on a global scale is important information.

Let’s focus on dark hearts that pull the trigger

I have written to the Times numerous moments in the past years to pose reflections as to our national path concerning the carnage we suffer through gun violence.

Beware of phone scams seeking computer access to charge fees

I wish to warn readers of some phone scams that have been going around. Dishonest people are calling to damage your computer, take your money and steal your identity.

Cartoon fails to make the right diagnosis

Andy Marlette's political cartoon in The Times on Thursday shows the lack of research that often goes into attempting to be timely in getting your work published. Dr. Ben Carson is NOT a neurologist but rather a neurosurgeon. No neurologist would make the mistake that is put forward in this cartoon!

Solving climate change would boost economy, not harm it

President Barack Obama's recent trip to Alaska, Pope Francis' encyclical on the environment and address to our Congress and the upcoming climate summit in Paris highlight the need to act decisively on climate change.

Prayers offered for pope and his message we need to hear in US

I prayed for the Pope this morning. Me, an avowed agnostic. Me, raised by a mother descended from French Huguenots. She never forgave the Catholic Church for what it did to her ancestors in the 18th century.

Conservative ‘red meat’ won’t solve our problems

I appreciate the concerns of Clinton Hawkins and Monte Seehorn regarding my letter on political balance in The Times' Opinion page. I agree there's a regrettable absence of investigative reporting on politics in news media. The firing of Dan Rather, Helen Thomas and Keith Olbermann from national news positions are examples of this trend. The trend is conservative.

Voters, be wary when politicians join forces with business interests

In the Sept. 12, letters section of your paper, Jim Waldrep and Mickey Montgomery complained America isn't the grand moral utopia of yesteryear and today's politicians cannot be depended upon to deliver for the common good.

Times story again portrays all Vietnam veterans as victims

When has The Times ever, and I mean ever, gotten a story about veterans right?

Gainesville needs traffic study at busy intersection for safety’s sake

I was very saddened and angered to learn one of our local residents died from his injuries in a car wreck last Friday. His car was hit while he attempted a left turn from Virginia Circle onto Thompson Bridge Road.

There was no intent or illegal hit in play that led to player’s injury

The Sept. 8 article, "Chestatee's Jay Mays given 'fresh perspective' after concussion during recent football game" needs some perspective. While describing the play in which Mays was injured, the text stated he was "tackled out of bounds" following a run play near the Chestatee sideline. He was, in fact, in the field of play when the West Hall defender made contact with him. It was a legal tackle; no flags were thrown, and no penalty was assessed against West Hall.

Where is the outrage over what our beloved nation has become?

Times are changing in our once great nation and in our world and not for the better, I fear. I come from a generation that remembers an America where people, generally speaking, took pride in our nation, our flag, our creator, and things like self-respect, integrity and a healthy perspective on moral behavior, both in private and publicly. It was a time when people could agree to disagree without fear of being labeled a "bigot" or a "racist pig" by others or by elected leaders in Washington.

American voters are tired of same political hacks

The Times' issue Thursday included an article from Clarence Lusane, chairman of the Political Science Department of Howard University. The article was written for the Progressive, a monthly ultra-liberal magazine based in Madison, Wis.

Iran nuclear pact is a done deal despite debate in DC

Don't be fooled by the wrangling in D.C. about the Iran nuclear agreement; it is a done deal. It was done last spring when the U.S. House and Senate passed HR 1191, the Iran Nuclear Review Act, and President Barack Obama signed it into law. Although the Republicans and Democrats in Congress may feign objections to the agreement, that is all theater.

Constitution is clear: ‘Anchor babies’ are not citizens

People are fussing over anchor babies, and well, they should. You know the definition: a baby born to parents illegally on American soil. Today, those babies get U.S. citizenship. The courts have ruled. Why? Pressure from the left? Judges have their own agenda?
