Charlotte Atkins: A fond farewell to a very special home

"Home" is such a personal word and means different things to different folks. I have called many places home in my life, from the East Coast to the West Coast. All have been special and all have shaped me and my life's journey.

Dick Yarbrough: Meeting gospel giants would top my bucket list

I don't have a bucket list, but if I did, I would be hard-pressed to find room to add anything else. There is not much I have wanted to do that I haven't done, from shooting the breeze with the president in the Oval Office to seeing the sun rise in the Scottish Highlands to being embedded with the brave men and women of Georgia's 48th Brigade Combat Team in Iraq.

Letter: Prayer Band has long brought races together in worship

Yes, it was very nice for St. John and Air Line to have service together. But I don't want Hall County to forget back in 1995 that the Gainesville Prayer Band went into an all-white church, and we're still going into all-white churches on the first Sunday of the month.

Letter: Addressing climate change should be a conservative’s goal

The conservative values of the sacredness of life from conception to death, balancing our budget, hard work to get ahead, strong Christian ethics and a belief that God is central to my life, loyalty, taking personal responsibility, a deep respect for scientific reasoning and facts, and being good stewards of the earth are all dear to my heart. My children and my family are very dear to me. I believe we need to keep America strong, for America is a beacon of hope to the world.

Letter: Father is sorry, thankful for judge, state troopers’ restraint

I wanted to reach out and thank Judge Jason Deal for his understanding during the trial of my son Leighton Beaux Marchetta. I pitied him being stuck with such a delicate case. Trying to balance justice with the law is not an easy task, and this particular case was probably harder than most. I applaud him for recognizing that my sons intent was not to harm anyone, but to commit suicide.

Letter: Effort to end violence, learning to live together begins with empathy

Have you ever heard the old saying if you took all the money in the world and divided it up equally in less than 10 years the money would revert back to the way it was before the distribution? I often wonder what would happen if the white race suddenly became black and black race became white?
