Letter: Presidential race hard to call with shaky candidates leading in both parties

I read in Sunday's Times that it seems the legal as well as the illegal Latinos in Gainesville and around the state are worried they will be deported and families split. That is their fault not the fault of the United States.

Letter: Hall County should be more proactive on trash by roadways

On Jan. 13, after the sickening sight of trash buildup on Old Oakwood Road near SAPA got to me, I picked up nine large bags of litter. It seems our litter problem in Hall County is only getting worse. It looks like some kind of action could be taken to catch and make an example of the littering pigs.

Letter: ‘Recipe for change’ won’t come from establishment candidates

Bruce Vandiver has a great grasp of the obvious ("Recipe for change needed to cure our political lethargy," Thursday letters column). He carefully defines the ongoing difficulties and failures. He does not, however, not have a grasp on the person who can do what needs to be done to right a sinking ship. With the efforts of our "establishment" Republicans? It seems that he is not in favor, as he belittles him, of Mr. Donald Trump.

I've given up on this community. Few people bother to speak out on issues of the day. This suggests we don't concern ourselves with subjects that once occupied the minds of America's founders.
