I am writing concerning the people who live in the Butler Street apartments. They are angry and concerned for their safety crossing the street and going to the store.
I have worked with Riverside Military Academy on numerous projects over the last 45-plus years.
After reading all of the last three opinions concerning gun control and expressing mine to Joan King, I have decided that the best way to combat the control problem is as follows:
I would like to personally thank Tina Crowe with The Hall County Road Maintenance and Sgt. Kelley Edwards with the Hall County Sheriff's Office for their help in getting speed limit signs posted on Ash Circle.
I normally do not read Joan King, but the headline "More guns don't make us safer" on Tuesday drew me in. She wrote: "There are better ways to protect your home and loved ones than sleeping with a .45 under your pillow."
Michelle Obama states that adding a single glass of water daily will bring improved health. Restaurants serve us, and we eat, fried Oreos, roasted watermelon, breaded fried pickles, overloaded potatoes, overloaded plates and decadent desserts. Our society's morals resemble those of Rome's Caligula. Hannah Montana has become a woman no decent man could proudly call his wife and decadence is an accepted word for Americans.
It occurs to me that we as employers have limited ability under the laws to inquire into a potential employee's background, etc. and therefore some employers have turned to temp agencies to act as a clearinghouse for potential employees.
Recently I hired a Gainesville area electrician to look at a porch light that keeps burning out. Because I had used him before, I agreed to a service charge plus parts, if any. As it turned out there was really nothing wrong, but a small adjustment was made to the socket where someone had turned the light bulb too tightly, bending a contact.
It has been a fun time working along with the Georgia Mountain Players in the musical productions that we have performed for 21 years. Those are memories that will last forever.
In reference to The Times' photographer, Nat Gurley, charged with obstruction: I am sure Gurley was just attempting to do his job. However, the law enforcement people were also attempting to do their job.
It's been suggested that Russia might help President Barack Obama by corralling chemical weapons in Syria and placing them under guard. We should remember this happened in Iraq before we invaded and toppled Saddam Hussein. After Gulf War I, all known weapons of mass destruction there were gathered and placed in locked storage.
It is unbelievable that our national leaders are so politically motivated and lacking the good judgment they should have regarding the Syrian revolution.
I noticed where Don Carter has retired as Department of Natural Resources commissioner and I would like to share a very pleasant courtesy he did for me. I have never met him, nor do I know him, but he sure helped me when I needed help.
I just returned from Myrtle Beach, S.C. I bought gas there at $3.21, then got back in Hall County and gas was $3.60.
RE: In response to Thursday's letter from Bruce Hallowell: It is not the duty of the president, not does he have the power to declare war. One has only to look at the Constitution (Article 1, Section 8.11).
Evolution is a fact. But let's call it by its proper name, natural selection. Natural selection is not a "law;" it is a process where populations (including human) physically change over time to meet the challenges of an ever changing environment.
