Letter: Letter on growing up in public housing was heart-warming

I want to commend Gwendolyn Johnson for her beautiful letter to The Times on June 8 about growing up in public housing. She expressed, in a memorable way, truths that we all know but often do not focus on or verbalize, such as home is where the heart is, memories are to be cherished, community is important, and life is not always - but most of the time - what you make it.

Letter: Dangerous highway a scene of too many deadly car wrecks

I wish someone could please do something about the speeding on my road, Talmo Road in Hall County. There was another accident June 11. Since we've lived here, there have been more accidents than I can count and two fatalities, one in 2013 and one in 2014, and sadly I heard there were three fatalities in the accident Saturday, barely two years since the last one.

I have been witness to severe injury crashes. I have watched people die. I have found people already dead. I have been haunted by the crosses and memorials left by loved ones. I have lost sleep at night. I have prayed infinite prayers for those struck with tragedy and for those who must deal with the aftermath.

Tom Crawford: Is David Perdue aiming for higher office?

Letter: Enota solution doesn’t have to involve destroying its garden

Re: Sunday's editorial, "Enota school plan cultivates discontent; Gainesville school leaders too tin-eared, indifferent." I applaud the summation of the editorial: An honest give-and-take between community leaders and concerned citizens should never be a one-way street.

Guest column, Rep. Doug Collins: Separation of powers key to securing liberty

When I have the privilege of spending time with high school government students in Northeast Georgia, I'm always impressed by the high caliber of discussion we enjoy. These bright young people studying our constitutional republic often have a command of our founders' vision of government that eludes elitist liberals and Washington bureaucrats.
