Letter: Richt displayed ideal character, grace at UGA press gathering

Normally my Monday morning activities would not include watching a streaming press conference on my iPad. Yet as a speech coach, I wanted to see how Mark Richt responded to questions during his press conference one day after the University of Georgia fired him as head football coach.

Letter: Abortion clinic attack reminds how other innocent lives are lost

The nation has been horrified by another attack on an abortion clinic and the taking of several innocent lives, as well we should be. I wonder how many innocent lives of unborn babies had been taken at that one clinic that day before the attack - the day before, the week before, the month before, the year before - and we were not horrified. Or by the taking of the lives of 55 million plus babies in our country since 1973.

Tom Crawford: Georgia is pricing students out of college

If you have a child attending one of Georgia's public universities, you may have the perception that the cost of college is going up faster here than just about anywhere else.

Letter: Gainesville team, band showed spirit

Congratulations to Gainesville High School. The football team, band, coaches, band director and fans deserve a lot of recognition for the great performances I witnessed in Stockbridge last Friday night. What a game! What a team! What a band! This validated for me the old adage, "it is how you play the game that counts."

Dick Yarbrough: My wife a saint? I can't argue with that

Several of you got a chuckle over my recent observations on a survey from the College of Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Georgia that says a good way to improve your marriage is to show gratitude to your spouse. As one reader told me, groveling doesn't hurt, either.

Letter: Obama’s failure is that he is too eager to meddle in Middle East

I read with interest Brian Heard's letter "fighting to win." I believe in American potential, but not American exceptionalism. I was taught God created all men equal; therefore I don't believe any country or it's people are exceptional relative to another. Nor do I believe any country deserves an exemption from obligations of international law or United Nations resolutions.

Letter: St. Paul’s Christmas concert will celebrate true spirit of season

RE: Response to James Peters' letter of Monday: You likely missed out on some good music by not attending the Holiday concert you mentioned. Might I recommend that you attend Voices of North Georgia's Christmas concert entitled "Caroling! Caroling!" on Dec. 4 or Dec. 5 in the sanctuary of St. Paul United Methodist Church at Washington and Academy streets in Gainesville.

Letter: Brenau concert labeled ‘holiday’ because of timing at Thanksgiving

James Peters' letter in The Times on Monday suggesting that Brenau University chose to name its Holiday Concert "in favor of an abstract holiday" inaccurately reflects the program and its content.

Letter: ‘Scrooge’s’ cheap shot at Brenau concert is right out of Fox News

Every Christmas season needs a Scrooge, and James Peters' letter about the Brenau University Holiday Concert certainly fits the bill. Rather than enjoying a wonderful program of music, maybe Mr. Peters and company just prefer sitting in front of Fox News and listening to Bill O'Reilly vent about the collapse of Western civilization brought about by the red Starbucks coffee cup.

Tom Crawford: Can, and should, Georgia refuse Syrian refugees?

Gov. Nathan Deal was adamant when he signed an executive order declaring that no Syrian refugees will be allowed to set foot in Georgia.

Letter: Deal should focus on highway dangers, not innocent refugees

Gov. Nathan Deal is anxious to protect us. Syrian refugees fleeing terrorism and war need asylum. Some of those refugees may potentially be ISIS terrorists. So Gov. Deal wants to keep them all out. It is an easy position to take, as it bears no expense to the state and makes him appear to be a concerned leader.

Rep. Doug Collins: Welcoming those who come to US legally is cause for thanks
