Editorial: Checking in at Capitol, where they've been busy

While we've been distracted these last several weeks by the Falcons' run to the Super Bowl and the daily reality show "Celebrity Presidential Apprentice" unfolding in Washington, the Georgia legislature has been humming along in the background like your refrigerator.

Letter: Casinos lead to crime, addiction, would change state’s character

As baseball great Yogi Berra was fond of saying, "it's deja vu all over again!" The lure of so-called easy tax revenue from legalizing non-Indian gambling casinos into Georgia continues to percolate in the state legislature.

Letter: True patriots believe in compassion, but not in importing terrorism

Recently I had lunch with 10 men about my age. The question was asked, How many of you served in the military? Six of those men had served in various branches and for varying periods of time. These were men who served post World War II. I believe that is a higher percentage than any subsequent generation.

Letter: Violent protesters ignore fair election, free speech

I would like to comment on the protests taking place across this nation. I must say I have never seen such childish, petty and stupid behavior. These people do not believe in our Constitution nor in American liberty. Donald Trump was legally elected, fair and square, yet the extreme socialist left will not accept that fact. The real hardworking, patriotic American people have spoken and the protesters need to just get over it.

Letter: Israel expansion foes aren’t ‘haters’ to prefer a 2-state solution

I read with interest Bill Morrison's recent letter stating Israel is entitled to lay claim to much of the Middle East, including parts of Egypt, all of Lebanon and Syria, half of Iraq, and the northern half of Jordan, because of a biblical covenant between God and Abraham

Letter: Problems shouldn’t discourage you but should help develop you

I have been on the Lula City Council for more than 16 years, and we and other city officials face problems every day on how to improve our cities to benefit our residents. I consider this union as a marriage that can cost you something, because self love is always what you can do for me.

Letter: Understanding our differences could heal divide

As an educator for over 20 years, I have been a staunch advocate for public education. Education can change the world. Language is power. The words we use either open up or shut down possibilities for students. What our schools offer to students and the models educators set for them have profound influence on the future of our democracy.

Letter: Americans should oppose effort to sell cherished public lands

Hunters, fishermen, hikers, campers, and friends of the natural heritage of our great country are expressing alarm at a recent proposal by Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah to sell off 3.3 million acres of public land. A further proposal of Rep. Chaffetz adds insult to injury by taking away the power of Forest Service personnel to enforce regulations within its boundaries.

Letter: Voters chose a president who will take us down an old path

Most of you reading this are responsible. Most of you chose the 45th president (hereinafter referred to as 45) to lead us. It was an irrational choice and we are being led down an old path that ended in the Bush-Cheney recession (not the Great Recession, as there was nothing great about it, unless you were in a position similar to 45 and could make a lot of money off people's suffering).

Letter: Citizen participation in local government is encouraging

The Times' Sunday editorial spoke about an issue that is near and dear to my heart: citizen involvement in local government. More people need to do this in Hall County, its local cities and municipalities. This is where we have the best opportunity to participate in our democracy.
