Letter: We still should be grateful to vote despite nature of election

The length and tenor of the current election cycle has wearied all of us, but I think that we have actually gained something in this election. Because Donald Trump does not seem to be the kind of candidate who can hide his flaws, and because advances in technology have made it possible to see the work of the Democrats behind the scenes, for the first time in my voting life - which began in 1964 - I feel that I truly know who it is I am voting for. For me, this is preferable to voting for some tricked-out imposter all gussied-up ...

Letter: Editorial views should shine a light on Clintons’ immoral behavior

The Times does a good job of selecting opposing opinions presented by local non-professional writers on the Opinion page. The professional journalists dealing specifically with Georgia politics are also generally objective and do a good job of representing opposing factions.

Dick Yarbrough: Can the school amendment’s plan really fix failing schools?

In Georgia, it is a political fact of life that whatever the governor wants - no matter who occupies the seat - the governor usually gets. That is because the office controls a lot of money and patronage and can dispense or withhold either, depending on whether or not you support or oppose the governor.

Letter: We all should light the way to help homeless

In May, I had sensed the call of God to go minister to the homeless. At the time, I didn't know where I was going to minister. I had been diligently seeking a closer walk with the Lord since the summer of 2015. I had also desired to experience more of God's great love in my own life. As a result of my personal quest to obtain a closer relationship with the Lord, I accepted the challenge and surrendered to go minister.

Letter: Columnist’s logic is flawed; a vote against Trump helps Clinton

I have followed Charles Krauthammer's writings for a number of years, and have found he seems to have a unique insight into complex situations and events. His recent article is a rather glaring example seemingly lacking in wisdom and sound reasoning. I refer to his closing remarks in which he stated he could never vote for Donald Trump. Since we only have two viable choices, a write-in has zero chance of being elected, and would serve as a "no" vote, and thus a vote for Hillary Clinton, whom he acknowledged as "deeply flawed."

Letter: ‘Critical thinking’ should offer solutions, not just criticize ideas

I am appalled by the letter from Eugene Elander from Dahlonega that appeared in Wednesday's Times stating that the governor's Amendment No. 1 is "wrongheaded."

Letter: Residents deserve answers from DOT on traffic impact of Mincey expansion

In its successful bid to rezone the 11.68-acre site on the north side of Browns Bridge Road, Mincey Marble has submitted an application to the Georgia Department of Transportaton to add two center turning lanes for trucks to cross Browns Bridge in order to enter the existing and proposed new plant.

Letter: Letter on Georgia school amendment, column on ‘the left’ both wrongheaded

It is not often a local newspaper carries a doubleheader of wrongheadness on its Opinion page on the exact same day, but such was the case in last Wednesday's Times. I am referring to the letter from Mary Worley and the column by Thomas Sowell. Neither piece passes the test of critical-thinking logic, a subject which I have taught for many years, nor do these items even pass the infamous "sniff test" often applied to such political articles.

Letter: Retired educators invited to take part in celebration, meetings

Gov. Nathan Deal has designated Nov. 6 as Retired Educator Day in Georgia. Georgia has more than 118,000 retired educators. They contribute countless volunteer hours each year which enrich the lives of many of our residents. We hope our area churches will join in announcing this day of appreciation for this group that has given so much of themselves to the young people in our state.

Letter: State should not allow KSU president who isn’t qualified

I am not only surprised, but really disappointed to read about the most unreasonable decision by the Board of Regents of the University Systems of Georgia to appoint Attorney General Sam Olens as the new President of the Kennesaw State University. He does not have any experience or educational background even to become the department head of any community college, unless somebody bypasses all the usual procedures to select a president of any state or private university as stated by columnist Tom Crawford's column "Politics all about connections" published Oct. 19.

Editorial: 'Rigged' election plot a far-fetched notion

Amid America's gradual descent into cynicism, we accept certain things as gospel: Death and taxes, the star-spangled banner waving forever, the good guys always win, and, either way, the rules of the game are fair. And in elections, our vote will be counted.
