Letter: GHSA athletic realignment does a disservice to public schools

On GHSA realignment: The Dave Hunter/Buford/AA Football rule (3 percent rule) was designed to move all private schools out of Class AA. It worked as intended. The lone exception is Benedictine, an all-male school that does not have to adhere to the 3 percent rule. Other than Benedictine, all other private schools were moved out of Class AA.

Letter: It’s president’s job to try and keep enemies out of country

In October of 1962, a foreign enemy of the United States sent weapons to Cuba. These weapons were capable of attacking our cities and killing our citizens. Then president John F. Kennedy, a Democrat, stood true to his oath of office to defend our country from all enemies, foreign and domestic. He ordered a naval blockade and brought the world to the brink of nuclear Armageddon. History has proven that his show of strength won a decisive victory and turned those weapons around.

Letter: GOP voters won’t go for the status quo in ’16 election

I would like to believe that the GOP is employing brilliant strategy to ensure that Donald Trump is our next president. Is it not obvious that the public feels disdain for the Washington establishment? The GOP is worried about what Mr. Trump is doing to their brand. I suggest that their "brand" could not be worse because of their abhorrent performance or lack of during the past four years.

Letter: Pols weighing in on headband ban are posturing for votes

I am highly disappointed in Doug Collins and Casey Cagle. They say they are outraged about the cross country runner in Forsyth County who was disqualified for having a Bible verse on his headband. There is no rule against writing on a headband. Runners have done this before.

Letter: US policies should focus on protecting our children first

Donald Trump's recommendation to temporarily halt the traffic of Muslims into our country deserves consideration, not knee-jerk condemnation. Granted, the First Amendment provides for the free exercise of religion, but this has never meant that people have been free to do whatever they wanted. An example of a restriction on the free exercise of religion is the abolition by the U.S. government of the Mormon practice of polygamy; human behavior required a restriction of the broad language used in the First Amendment.

Letter: Don't be shocked if Gainesville again tries to impose tax as stormwater 'fee'

I see where the Gainesville City Council has considered a tax on the water that runs off your property. It has been defeated for now, but you can expect it to resurface. Though they now are calling it a fee instead of a tax. Why do you suppose that is the case?

Doug Collins: ISIS threat calls for a decisive US response

ISIS' murderous rampage in Paris shocked the Western world, but the targeting and taking of human life is not a new page in the ISIS playbook. ISIS has caged human beings and burned them alive, resurrected the brutal practice of crucifixion, lined people up for mass shooting and beheadings, and sells children as sex slaves.
