Letter: Seniors should be willing to support schools, a need for educated workers

I read your Sunday front page article on tax revenue loss for schools with a sense of great disappointment in my fellow senior citizens. Certainly at age 70 or possibly earlier, individuals with limited income, less than $35,000 or possibly $50,000 should be able to be exempt from school taxes. For the rest of us more fortunate seniors, I believe it our responsibility and civic duty to continue to pay school taxes.

Letter: Government schools will always want more of our tax dollars

I read with interest the moanings of the school board regarding senior tax exemptions. How sad; these socialists just can't get enough of our money. A much fairer and better way to handle exemptions would be to exempt anyone who has never had a child in government schools. Though I have never been wealthy I raised my children in Christian school, K through college degrees. It was a good decision. It is legal larceny to tax me for the schools that other people choose.

Letter: GOP should back Trump as a better choice than lawless Democratic candidate

When I see law and order attacked and the lawless emboldened by the leadership in our country, I find it extremely troubling. Then we see a person who has been proven to be a habitual liar and grossly incompetent nominated for the highest office in the land. Assuming this is the future norm, how can we survive as a nation our founders envisioned and spelled out in our Constitution?

Editorial: Parties sail off on voyages from reality

The political parties have concluded their respective four-day infomercials and the fall presidential race is on. Two New Yorkers earned their party nominations after brutally long and tough primary races and contentious, divided conventions, many of the opposing factions still stewing with hurt feelings over their final defeats.

Ron Martz: A broken way to pick a president

The ascendance of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to the head of their respective parties as presidential candidates is proof positive that our present system of picking the leader of the free world is, if not irrevocably broken, at least in need of a major overhaul.

Letter: Governor didn’t fully explain school amendment issue

While speaking to employees new to the Hall County school district about education reform and the Opportunity School District constitutional amendment proposal, Gov. Nathan Deal missed the opportunity to explain his real education goals to those new employees. He had the opportunity to tell the new teachers in the audience that 4 of every 10 of them will be gone by 2021. A document issued by the Georgia DOE in December, 2015 provides statewide statistics supporting that fact.

Letter: Americans should stop being PC, support their traditional values

Jim Croce warned, "You don't tug on Superman's cape." Back then, men mimicked the Man of Steel by standing for truth, justice and the "American way." Today, many men, especially today's middle-aged and younger segment of our population, have been devitalized and relegated to the passivity of only spectating.

Letter: Presidential race requires voters to pay attention and participate

I've seen little, if any, coverage of the presidential election in my local papers and other sources. It's as if White County and Georgia have little interest in the most important election, not just in my lifetime but in the history of our country. I'm asking you to put aside your distractions for a few minutes and think about what we are facing.
