Letter: Students need learning option a garden offers

As a former Enota Elementary teacher and Gainesville resident having taught young children for 42 years, I know the value of hands-on, real life activities to enhance learning. I sought to instill awe and wonder for the natural world and strived to get my students outside to explore nature while teaching at Enota. I helped create garden plots for my students and enjoyed having access to the nearby woods where my class could explore.

Letter: Forget fighting over bathrooms; focus on real victims of abuse

Letter: Educational value of garden at Enota should factor into plans

Recent research in the field of education emphasizes the importance of the "softer side" of our schools. Students behave better, focus better and remember more if they are relaxed and have chances during the day to enjoy music, art and, yes, recess.

Letter: Columnist tells only part of story on nuclear power

In his Wednesday column about the Public Service Commission and Georgia Power, Tom Crawford has done what most journalist do today - tell part of the story. I do not disagree with anything he says about the large cost overruns on Georgia Power's nuclear plants. However, his limited knowledge of the utility industry does not allow him to tell the whole story, only to berate the PSC and Georgia Power for what he feels is poor management.

I write following your articles in The Times about the impending destruction of the Smartville garden at Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy. What a gem this garden is!

Letter: Choosing love, peace that faith offers is path to happiness

Recently I got inebriated and I had a hangover the next morning, but instead of feeling bad, I felt renewed. And recently, I hugged many nice ladies, and even hugged some men. And recently at times, I laughed so hard tears ran down my cheeks.

Letter: Enota garden and its impact are worth saving

I am writing to object to the destruction of the Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy Smartville garden to build a parking lot. This garden is unlike any school garden that I have seen because of the unusual plant materials and the masterful incorporation of environmental ideas into the design.

I'm glad columnist Dick Yarbrough saw that state Sen. Joshua McKoon had an opportunity to make his case for "religious freedom," but I wonder what world the senator inhabits. It certainly isn't the one I know.
