Letter: It’s time to put a third party choice in place

I believe there is almost universal agreement this election cycle that we are only going to get to choose which candidate will do the least harm. It is without a doubt; the lesser of two evils, and when that is the only choice you have, the result is not going to be good for anyone.

Letter: Despite low election, Clinton is clearly the greater of two evils

This campaign for president is, to say the least, the most insidious, smutty, vile display of bad behavior on the part of both candidates that I have ever witnessed in my 74 years. Like so many other Americans, I am greatly perplexed and disheartened by the candidates we are left to pick from. We passed over a number of viable, much more deserving and qualified candidates to settle on the worst possible two choices for president I could imagine.

Letter: Trump is crude, but Clinton’s actions have actually cost lives

Donald Trump is a rude, crude dude. Hillary Clinton has TV ads proclaiming how much she values and cherishes children. That love and concern does not extend to the thousands upon thousands upon thousands of children who have been, and are being slaughtered in the name of "choice." She not only condones this practice, but also promotes it. Add to those numbers the Americans slaughtered at Benghazi.

Letter: Amendment gives hope to state’s kids stuck in bad schools

Children are the future. They are our legacy, our future workforce, the teachers of Georgia's future generations. Right now, 68,000 of these children are required by law to attend schools that are failing them year after year. As both a mother and a grandmother, this is simply unacceptable. I can't imagine having no other choice than to send my children to a failing school and watch the cycle continue. Not everyone can afford to send their child or children to private schools or even go as far as moving so they have a chance at a better ...

Dick Yarbrough: Bank’s lapses can hurt whole business world

There is nothing more important than your good name. I inherited mine from one of the most honest and ethical men I ever knew: my father. A man without a lot of education or sophistication, his was a world of right and wrong, good and bad, legal or illegal.
