Dick Yarbrough: Bank’s lapses can hurt whole business world

There is nothing more important than your good name. I inherited mine from one of the most honest and ethical men I ever knew: my father. A man without a lot of education or sophistication, his was a world of right and wrong, good and bad, legal or illegal.

Letter: Should we vote to remain on the same path?

What if you lived in a country where the national debt had climbed to over $19 trillion (actually $19,519,932,367,847)? Where the annual deficit in the current year was projected to be $590 billion? Where the monthly cost of interest on the debt was $1 billion? Where the president and his party had done absolutely nothing in eight years to address the problem, and indeed had added over $8 trillion to the debt? A country in which the president and his party declared they would never make any changes in the entitlement programs that were the main ...

Letter: Clintons would bring a career of corruption back to White House

Beginning with the lie the Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama government furnished to deflect blame from Benghazi, we see how masterful the Democrats have become in protecting its key vote-getters and key fundraisers. At this point, the Clinton-Obama government has paralyzed the Justice Department, the State Department, the IRS and the FBI when shielding Hillary from the truth.

Letter: Traffic, odors should lead to ‘no’ vote on Mincey Marble plant expansion

Dear Hall County commissioners: I have been a resident of Hall County for the past 10 years and have enjoyed the lake and the neighborly environment of this beautiful area.

In 2015, we saw record severe rainfall events in the U.S. as well as a record-setting year for wildfires. Each of the last 16 months has set a record for the hottest month ever recorded in history.

Letter: Killing health care law over rising costs is not the answer

Monday's op-ed by former Senator Jim DeMint, now the president of the Heritage Foundation, likening The Affordable Care Act to the Titanic, is the height of hypocrisy. What became the ACA began its life as a market-based health insurance proposal from the Heritage Foundation itself. DeMint's column is the equivalent of a father declaring his own child to be ugly.
