Letter: Americans should stop being PC, support their traditional values

Jim Croce warned, "You don't tug on Superman's cape." Back then, men mimicked the Man of Steel by standing for truth, justice and the "American way." Today, many men, especially today's middle-aged and younger segment of our population, have been devitalized and relegated to the passivity of only spectating.

Letter: Presidential race requires voters to pay attention and participate

I've seen little, if any, coverage of the presidential election in my local papers and other sources. It's as if White County and Georgia have little interest in the most important election, not just in my lifetime but in the history of our country. I'm asking you to put aside your distractions for a few minutes and think about what we are facing.

Letter: CNN convention coverage made an effort to ignore speakers

According to conservative news sources, "CNN cut away from speakers ... Mary Ann Mendoza, Sabine Durden, and Jamiel Shaw, who each lost a child through crimes committed by illegal aliens. ... who spoke out against illegal immigration at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, turning instead to its daily stable of talking heads, and coming back for a conventional politicians speech."

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: Too many guns in hands of the fearful leads to mass killings

The nation is faced with two deeply emotional and highly inflammatory problems: the spread of guns and rampant distrust of authority - mass shootings on one hand and an apparent war between police and people of color on the other. These problems are intertwined.

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.
