Your Views: Carter kept a promise to help deliver report for project

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.

Your Views: Congress needs to declare war, not president, says Constitution

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).

Your Views: Obama fails to lead, passes Syria buck to Congress

For the past three years, President Barack Obama has used every means possible to delete the authority of Congress in decision making issues. He has used Congress as his whipping boy; if he makes a bad decision, it is the fault of the Congress. Anything favorable that happens, he takes credit for. Now, after shooting his mouth off (the "red line" comment) he tells Congress that it must make a decision he is unwilling to make.

Your Views: Columnist displays vendetta in attacking Georgia Power’s plans

Re: Joan King opinion page of Aug. 27, "Opinions shouldn't deter facts." It would help me to understand the wisdom proclaimed if explanations were provided as follows: Why does this self-appointed opinion expert continue to rant against Georgia Power's nuclear generating expansion and financing thereof without making any reference that the other two major investors (and eventual 50 percent owners) of the Plant Vogtle nuclear facilities are MEAG and electric membership corporations?

Your Views: Social contracts should be part of a civilized world

Your Views: Most Riverside graduates go on to fields other than military

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.

Your Views: Outrage over Martin’s slaying doesn’t extend to other cases
