Letter: It’s nice to have a president who supports our freedom of faith

After reflecting on what President Donald Trump said at last month's evangelical gathering, I was aware I had seen a miracle: a politician, newly dubbed, striving to keep his campaign promises. I felt for the first time in eight years we had someone in the swamp who had our best interest on his agenda. He has our backs and not our throats.

Letter: Trump’s threats to Syria mirror Bush's deception over Iraq WMD

In his recent letter, Gary Hulsey said we need truth to cure a viral epidemic of political correctness. I wonder if he feels the same way about President George W. Bush's pernicious lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq used to counterfeit a pretext for invasion and removal of Saddam Hussein? Where were Hulsey's principles for truth when the lives of half a million people in Iraq were at stake?

Letter: Weak congressional leaders make a strong case for term limits

This is probably the most difficult analysis I have attempted because it involves very sick politicians.

Letter: If guns keep us safe, why are they OK on campuses but not Capitol?

Saturday, campus carry became law in the state of Georgia. This bill, which was opposed by the university system of Georgia and by most students and voters, will lead to protests all around our state. Alas, we do not live in a democracy, so the law stands.

Editorial: The label we can all share is USA

When the nation pauses for a few days to celebrate the 241st anniversary of our independence, it goes without saying all the fireworks these days aren't in the sky.

Dick Yarbrough: 'Opportunity' school group earns an ‘F’ on education

Oh, barf. The Georgia Center for Opportunity - whatever that is - has come out with a report card, giving As and A-pluses to cut-and-run legislators who want to promote private school scholarships with public money rather than deal with the societal problems our schools face.

Letter: VA health rules make it harder to get needed care

I agree with R. Gary Humphries in his letter to the editor on Wednesday regarding Veterans Affairs health care. I have experienced this firsthand with my brother, Ronnie, who is a veteran. He suffered a stroke in February 2016 and is still paralyzed on his left side. He goes to the Oakwood Clinic for regular doctor visits, where they can only prescribe medication. Anything else has to go through the Atlanta office via a "consult appointment."

Letter: Join Wisconsin town in honoring law officers with blue lights

I recently visited by daughter and family in Wasau, located in north central Wisconsin and similar in size to Gainesville. Upon arriving at my daughter's home, I noticed a blue light bulb in the front porch fixture. After dinner, I saw blue lights on virtually every house on the street. At first, I thought they were bug lights. They were not.

Letter: UNG students, please leave your guns at home

To University of North Georgia students, faculty, staff, parents, and visitors with a concealed weapons permit: Please don't bring your guns to campus. You have this right now. Don't exercise it.

Editorial: Make effort to drive, boat sober this Fourth

A long holiday weekend, hot summer weather, cheap gas and a world of distractions are the perfect formula for danger on Georgia highways.

Letter: Veterans’ health care needs can lead to long drives, iffy insurance bills

I have seen many articles about the Veterans Choice Program, but for me and many other veterans, the program is a joke. Many of my medical services require me to travel to the Atlanta VA Medical Center in Decatur, and some services require a more than 30-day wait. But because there is a VA clinic in Oakwood, I and many other veterans do not qualify for the Choice Program.
