Letter: Parents should give their children the right priorities from the start

Letter: If you don’t want to fear the law, come into the US legally

In reading the letter on Thursday's Opinion page from Arturo Adame, I am quite dumbfounded. But that's not a state new to me in the last few months. It never ceases to amaze me that some people just will never get "it," no matter what.

This year, the annual cost of caring for individuals living with Alzheimer's or other dementias will reach $259 billion, $175 billion of which comes in direct costs to Medicare and Medicaid.

Letter: Hall landfill is a fine example of one residents can live with

If the people who are objecting to the proposed landfill would visit the Hall County Landfill off Candler Highway, they would see how beautifully it is managed and operated. It is practically invisible as a landfill and resembles only a grassy hill. There is no smell at all and no trash or garbage anywhere visible. All of us who live here should be very appreciative of how our waste is taken care of, including tree stumps.

Letter: Program to detain immigrants leads to distrust among Latino residents

Hall County's 287(g) program is halting growth in our cities and county. Immigration Customs Enforcement isn't simply there to keep our citizens and residents safe, but to keep Latino people in fear. The Latino community doesn't believe ICE is out to deport the worst criminals.

Guest column: Budget cuts could threaten legal services for state’s poor

We recently helped a mother and her five children avoid eviction from their home that was scheduled to happen the following day. All in a day, our attorney found and pointed out flaws in previous legal proceedings, negotiating with the Department of Community Affairs that oversaw the housing unit our client and her family lived in. The family of six was spared from being homeless and allowed to stay in their home until a new lease they had in the works began.
