Police deserve our respect, not scorn

Charles Sherwood is 150 percent correct! The police do a great job with dignity and professionalism. Someone should ask Joan King if she would look forward to going to a job where a crazy terrorist wanted to behead her just because of the color of the uniform she wore? Or where her life was on the line every second of every shift for relatively little pay? Or if there were no police and she had to fend for herself?

Your views: Surviving the storm of life

I find it so refreshing to be able to talk about the events in our lives to people we can trust that have no agenda to harm us.

Your views: Times series shows we must work together

On behalf of the poultry industry here and across this great state, I want to thank and praise The Times for its special report last week and excellent examination of water quality issues in our community. The stories, authored by reporters Jeff Gill, Shannon Casas and Joshua Silavent, were well researched and written. They provided a comprehensive full picture understanding of the potential sources of pollutants in our drinking water from Lake Lanier and its feeder streams.

Your Views: Roosevelt Square doesn’t need fixing

The other day I read a small notice that our illustrious city council was considering "improving the square." I had lunch at the square the other day, sat outside and had a nice time just looking. I found the square looked very nice - nothing needs to be done.

Your Views: Instead of politicizing Jesus, why not just follow his way of living?

Just like the Roman emperor Constantine did 1800 years ago, the "powers that be" continue to politicize Jesus for their own personal gain. And Christians continue to be vulnerable. Traditional theology hasn't helped much.

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.
