Dick Yarbrough: Bank’s lapses can hurt whole business world

There is nothing more important than your good name. I inherited mine from one of the most honest and ethical men I ever knew: my father. A man without a lot of education or sophistication, his was a world of right and wrong, good and bad, legal or illegal.

Letter: Earth’s temperatures constantly change, yet not because of CO2

I've read August was the hottest month on record worldwide since 1880 by three-tenths of a degree Fahrenheit. This past March was warm in North Georgia But was it warmer in Scotland, Alberta, Canada, or Berlin? No one has said.

Letter: Should we vote to remain on the same path?

What if you lived in a country where the national debt had climbed to over $19 trillion (actually $19,519,932,367,847)? Where the annual deficit in the current year was projected to be $590 billion? Where the monthly cost of interest on the debt was $1 billion? Where the president and his party had done absolutely nothing in eight years to address the problem, and indeed had added over $8 trillion to the debt? A country in which the president and his party declared they would never make any changes in the entitlement programs that were the main ...

Letter: Clintons would bring a career of corruption back to White House

Beginning with the lie the Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama government furnished to deflect blame from Benghazi, we see how masterful the Democrats have become in protecting its key vote-getters and key fundraisers. At this point, the Clinton-Obama government has paralyzed the Justice Department, the State Department, the IRS and the FBI when shielding Hillary from the truth.

Letter: Traffic, odors should lead to ‘no’ vote on Mincey Marble plant expansion

Dear Hall County commissioners: I have been a resident of Hall County for the past 10 years and have enjoyed the lake and the neighborly environment of this beautiful area. I have noticed a marked increase in traffic on Browns Bridge Road since we have been here and know that if any small incident happens between McEver Road and the bridge, the traffic will stand still for hours.

Letter: Weather events prove we need to take action on climate change

In 2015, we saw record severe rainfall events in the U.S. as well as a record-setting year for wildfires. Each of the last 16 months has set a record for the hottest month ever recorded in history. We had Hurricane Sandy go straight up the coast in 2012 with devastating results. Now we have had two hurricanes this year travel directly up the coast. Matthew has been disastrous.

Letter: Killing health care law over rising costs is not the answer

Monday's op-ed by former Senator Jim DeMint, now the president of the Heritage Foundation, likening The Affordable Care Act to the Titanic, is the height of hypocrisy. What became the ACA began its life as a market-based health insurance proposal from the Heritage Foundation itself. DeMint's column is the equivalent of a father declaring his own child to be ugly.

Editorial: Crowing for Gainesville's Poultry King

Next time you bite into a piece of Georgia-grown chicken, be sure to pause and thank those responsible for it. That includes the chicken, of course, but also the farmer, the processor and the grocer who all helped put it on your plate.
