Letter: Forget Clinton’s emails; Trump’s flip-flops, policy ideas are far worse

RE: Hillary Clinton's emails. This seeming rehash of this subject resulted from the recent untimely action of FBI Director James Comey reopening his initial statement that the matter was closed.

Letter: Voters shouldn’t pick candidates merely on looks, race or gender

In 1962, when I was a lad of 10, I went with my mother to visit one of her friends. Upon arrival, the governor's race was discussed, and my mother said, "I'm going to vote for Carl Sanders because he is so handsome." My mother's friend agreed that ol' Carl was a very handsome man and she was going to vote for him for the same reason.

Letter: There is hope for nation if we vote with our true conscience

Is there still hope for America? It is my hope voters will look to the real issues facing our country and the necessity for a change in our direction, and not vote based solely on popularity. Let's face it; the two people running for president are flawed.

Tom Crawford: Isakson’s health is a valid issue in Senate race

There's not much suspense about who will win Georgia's U.S. Senate race. Republican incumbent Johnny Isakson has been ahead of his Democratic challenger, Jim Barksdale, by 10 points or more in most recent polls.

Letter: Hall commission gave in to money interests over its Mincey decision

Something stinks more than styrene in Hall County. Look no further than the Hall commissioners' office to find the source. There is absolutely no logical explanation for the approval of the rezoning of Mincey Marble's property other than money and power prevails over the will of the majority of the people, again!

Letter: Democrats never discuss hard work, freedom, independence

As you listen to any candidate from the Democratic Party in either a speech or in a written article, there are words and phrases you will never find simply because they do not believe in them. They are as follows: freedom, independence, self-reliance, individual rights, property rights, hard work, accountability, illegal aliens (not "undocumented workers") radical Islamic jihadists and in God we trust.

Letter: We still should be grateful to vote despite nature of election

The length and tenor of the current election cycle has wearied all of us, but I think that we have actually gained something in this election. Because Donald Trump does not seem to be the kind of candidate who can hide his flaws, and because advances in technology have made it possible to see the work of the Democrats behind the scenes, for the first time in my voting life - which began in 1964 - I feel that I truly know who it is I am voting for. For me, this is preferable to voting for some tricked-out imposter all gussied-up ...

Letter: Editorial views should shine a light on Clintons’ immoral behavior

The Times does a good job of selecting opposing opinions presented by local non-professional writers on the Opinion page. The professional journalists dealing specifically with Georgia politics are also generally objective and do a good job of representing opposing factions.

Dick Yarbrough: Can the school amendment’s plan really fix failing schools?

In Georgia, it is a political fact of life that whatever the governor wants - no matter who occupies the seat - the governor usually gets. That is because the office controls a lot of money and patronage and can dispense or withhold either, depending on whether or not you support or oppose the governor.

Letter: We all should light the way to help homeless

In May, I had sensed the call of God to go minister to the homeless. At the time, I didn't know where I was going to minister. I had been diligently seeking a closer walk with the Lord since the summer of 2015. I had also desired to experience more of God's great love in my own life. As a result of my personal quest to obtain a closer relationship with the Lord, I accepted the challenge and surrendered to go minister.

Letter: Columnist’s logic is flawed; a vote against Trump helps Clinton

I have followed Charles Krauthammer's writings for a number of years, and have found he seems to have a unique insight into complex situations and events. His recent article is a rather glaring example seemingly lacking in wisdom and sound reasoning. I refer to his closing remarks in which he stated he could never vote for Donald Trump. Since we only have two viable choices, a write-in has zero chance of being elected, and would serve as a "no" vote, and thus a vote for Hillary Clinton, whom he acknowledged as "deeply flawed."

Letter: ‘Critical thinking’ should offer solutions, not just criticize ideas

I am appalled by the letter from Eugene Elander from Dahlonega that appeared in Wednesday's Times stating that the governor's Amendment No. 1 is "wrongheaded."

Letter: Residents deserve answers from DOT on traffic impact of Mincey expansion

In its successful bid to rezone the 11.68-acre site on the north side of Browns Bridge Road, Mincey Marble has submitted an application to the Georgia Department of Transportaton to add two center turning lanes for trucks to cross Browns Bridge in order to enter the existing and proposed new plant.
