Letter: Mincey’s plant expansion plan too much for a residential area

The real problem with Mincey Marble is that it is too big and doesn't belong in a rural residential area anymore.

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.

Tom Crawford: Georgia Power likely to get an early Christmas gift

Christmas traditionally is celebrated Dec. 25 for most Georgians. This year, one of our wealthiest corporate citizens may be celebrating that holiday a little earlier.

Ron Martz: A rigged debate farce

The second presidential debate is scheduled for tonight and I am going to enjoy missing it just as much as I enjoyed missing the first one, and will undoubtedly enjoy missing the third one Oct. 19.

Editorial: Crowing for Gainesville's Poultry King

Next time you bite into a piece of Georgia-grown chicken, be sure to pause and thank those responsible for it. That includes the chicken, of course, but also the farmer, the processor and the grocer who all helped put it on your plate.

Dick Yarbrough: Georgia is bigger, better than all those places that fit inside it

Today's topic will not include commentary on a bunch of immature multimillionaires who play a kids' game and who are being goaded by special interest groups into disrespecting a country that allows them the freedom to do so.

Letter: Mincey Marble has not kept its promises, so Hall County should deny expansion

I ask Hall County commissioners to finally stand up for residents greatly impacted by past decisions from the almost constant 39-year expansion of Mincey Marble in what is, and has been, a rural residential area.

Letter: Trump’s rise a dream that would turn to nightmare if he’s elected

I awoke the other morning in a cold sweat from a horrific dream that Donald Trump was running for president and was about neck and neck with Hillary Clinton - until I accepted it was a frightful reality rather than just a bad dream. Trump is Trump, and would not change if elected president. He would react hastily or drastically to the slightest provocation with no inkling as to the possible results of his actions.

Letter: A president who knows business is just what our country needs

Recently the subject of paid taxes came up in the debates on television. I know for a fact Donald Trump, being a tremendous businessman, is very knowledgeable about the many ways taxes can be paid but not at the risk of losing money. He is aware there are many tax-deferred accounts business people use. He is not just a candidate for president but a private person as well, and in being so has the same rights to finding the best way to invest his money and his many companies' funds in a lucrative way while paying those taxes. Tax credits ...

Editorial: Merely out of sight won't fix homeless problem

Many in Gainesville are aware of the longtime homeless camp under the Queen City Parkway Bridge, a temporary haven of sorts for those who have nowhere else to go.

Letter: A truthful candidate is deserving of support, but that’s not Trump

I agree with Helen Stell that when a candidate speaks the truth they deserve your support. However, she's obviously missing which candidate that is. I suggest she do some Googling and check on Donald Trump's responses. Any subject, it doesn't matter. He lies about everything.
