You think bridges rank low? Try more taxes for transit

Has anyone else noticed a proliferation of news stories about Georgia DOT local road programs and about the T-SPLOST vote upcoming, while at the same time the Georgia Newspaper's Partnership Poll (of what citizens want the Georgia General Assembly to work on this year) put the "Roads and Bridges" category at 2 percent preference?

Columnist should learn more about creation at museum

Jenkins was true to his family, friends, residents in need

My first memory of Ed Jenkins was September 1955, the beginning of our friendship as students at the University of Georgia Law School. I was impressed with his wonderful sense of humor, his down-to-earth personality and we had much in common: Ed a product of the mountains and me, a product of the red clay hills of Madison County and the cotton fields. Neither of us grew up with a silver spoon, as did some of our fellow classmates.

Letter writer got it wrong with his ideas on ‘liberal’ America

There is an old adage that reads "One half the world doesn't understand the other half and it doesn't matter which half you're in." Nowhere, is that truism more obvious than in the campaign battles of an American presidential election.

Adding to wish list for candidates in 2012 elections

In response to George Koesters' wish list letter in The Times Dec. 22, I have compiled a list of potential qualities that I would like a candidate to possess before and after the election. These might seem very cliche because rarely will any candidate before their election speak about doing these things, or continue to do them after their election. Perhaps 1 in 1,000 elected officials might do these things.

Americans, let’s embrace our true liberal soul

The word liberal is a nasty word for many people, especially in the South. That's unfortunate because no other word expresses the soul of America as well as the word liberal, which basically means free and generous.

Americans have turned away from their moral foundation

I am deeply concerned about the direction our nation is going and the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in. As a Christian, I feel that most of the woes we face are due to the fact that we as Americans have abandoned the faith of our forefathers in a belief in divine providence.
