Letter: Be thankful for work of local food banks

We are thankful for a lot of things but a lot of people are thankful for this one thing: food banks. Our Girl Scout troop recently learned more about how our community food bank operates. People are thankful for food banks because it helps children and adults all over the world. Sometimes people do not understand that food banks help people in their own community. This is how you can help people in your community.

Editorial: Starbucks flap pours out a cup of bad cheer

Amid the real issues and challenges our society faces headed toward an election year comes this one that blew up the Internet last week: The coffee chain Starbucks came up with a plain red holiday cup that some didn't deem festive or "Christmasy" enough.

Editorial: Veterans tell of battles against the unknown

Americans who haven't served in the military should try to understand what we have asked of the young men and women who have laid their lives on the line for our benefit. We can't really walk in their boots and share the full experience of combat and beyond. But even if we can comprehend just a bit of the dangers they endured overseas, and the challenges they now face back home, we can better fathom the human cost of war. In doing so, we should wisely choose leaders who don't lead us into them carelessly.

Letter: Climate change can’t explain past weather events

With reference to Tom Crawford's column in The Times on Wednesday, Tom uses the recent wet weather to attack Georgia Republican elected officials. Tom provides no scientific backing for his premise that "climate change" is about to kill us all because Republicans are not believers in "climate change."
