Ron Martz: A case of separate justice

Donald Trump has never said much with which I agree, especially since he became a presidential candidate. Much of that has to do with the fact that he is rude, crude, ethically challenged and speaks in platitudes rather than substance.

Dick Yarbrough: Add state parks to Georgia's brag book

I am late getting to this subject with summer whizzing along, but not so much so that we can't still squeeze it in the state of Georgia's brag book, along with Vidalia onions, St. Simons sunsets, rainbow trout and Ray Charles Robinson. I am talking about our state parks.

No one should be on the city or county school boards unless they have a child or children in the school system. When they have a child in the school system, board members would, or should, have a better feeling for what is going on compared to members who do not have a child in the city or county systems.

Letter: Summitt was a giant who never lost touch with her loyal fans

I was saddened to learn Pat Summitt, retired women's basketball coach at Tennessee, passed away. I had the privilege of crossing paths in little ways with Coach Summitt over the years. Each time, my respect for the great lady increased.

Letter: Editorial stated well how simple solutions don’t solve problems

I am on vacation in the Gainesville area, and my compliments to your staff for the excellent editorial, "Divided, misguided" of June 19.
