Letter: Medical bills can add up fast if you have no insurance

Early in December, I had to miss work and visit the doctor. Winter has never been kind to me, and, as I grow older, my body becomes more susceptible to the changing of the seasons. I was diagnosed with a touch of bronchitis and given two shots and two prescriptions, a simple diagnosis with a simple cure. Except that the latter turned out not to be the case. When my symptoms persisted, I went back two weeks later and received three more prescriptions.

Letter: Whatever candidate or party we choose, vote for our democratic freedoms

I am not a political type of person, but feel that one of the many things our voting populous should consider is the type of party, whether it is Republican or Democrat.

Doug Collins: One language unites a nation

Imagine that every member of your family or workplace spoke a different language.

Editorial: Why not trust the Constitution?

The U.S. Constitution is an amazing document in so many ways, not the least of which is its timeless nature. It has endured 200-plus years of societal and political changes though, like the fabled elephant to the blind men, it appears as different things to all who interpret it.

Dick Yarbrough: Much-loved fried shrimp are back at St. Simons grill

Perhaps this renewed love affair doesn't quite rise to the level of Humphrey Bogart's Rick finding Ingrid Bergman's Ilsa in "Casablanca" ("Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.").

Letter: Super Bowl again puts spotlight on domestic violence

Soon we'll gather with friends for the most watched television event of the year (if even just for the commercials). Last year the Super Bowl aired a public service announcement about ending domestic violence and sexual assault, following the surfacing of a graphic video in 2014 showing NFL player Ray Rice hitting his then-fiancée and dragging her unconscious body across the floor.

Letter: Iran giveaway, presidential race show why US is headed awry

I believe most would agree that something very wrong is going on; our society and our nation is going straight to hell in a handbasket. I don't see any significant evidence of real outrage on the part of Americans or the people we elect to go to Washington to represent our interests.

Letter: If housing, income are your problem, vote for the right solutions

If you are over 40 you should already know what I'm about to say. If you are under 40, hopefully this will help you stop worrying about what you read in The Times over the past week about people having a real problem finding a place to live that they can afford.

Letter: Vengeance is no reason to punish some who pose no threat to us

A few years ago, a friend committed a crime. He deserved punishment, but there were extenuating circumstances: He was weathering three personal tragedies, continuous pain from severe scoliosis, drank alcohol to relieve some of the pain and overreacted to a perceived threat to his children.
