Letter: Stakeholders in exit battle need to listen to, love their neighbors

As a member of the Martin Road Stakeholders Committee, watching the progress of the battle over Exit 14/Martin Road expansion has been interesting. There are many players in this struggle, from the government officials at all levels to the commercial property owners, the industry-freight companies and the homeowners and their families. With that many contenders, there's always room for complete breakdown of communication, perspective, objectivity and especially respect. I've faced the challenge myself.

Editorial: It’s still your America

North Georgians awoke this morning as they did the Sunday before, to another January day of church services, household chores, dinner plans, the usual fare. The sun may not be shining, based on a gloomy forecast, yet it did not fall from the sky and incinerate the planet.

Dick Yarbrough: A turn to the left is not what Democrats need

I hope you will forgive me, but I am going against my better judgment today and sounding like one of those inch-wide, inch-deep political pundits and blah-blah bloggers who can be more boring than a tree stump.

Letter: Inauguration draws little interest inside area restaurant

I was excited about watching our new president get sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. At lunch, I made it a point to pick a restaurant that had TVs so that I could watch the ceremonies. The place I picked had it going on, all the TVs were tuned to various affiliates covering the swearing-in festivities as to get several perspectives. They even had the closed caption on so that if you wanted to you could keep up with the sound that was missing. My hat goes off to this restaurant because it was well prepared.

Letter: Growing clean energy can offer the US a new road to prosperity

Secretary of Energy nominee Rick Perry was right when he said that climate change was a danger, but we had to combat it in a way that does not hurt our economy.

Letter: What God gave Israelis as their homeland can’t be taken away by UN

Regardless of what the United Nations says or what individual countries or leaders say, the whole nation of Israel belongs to the Jewish people, not just a part of it. God gave it to them 4,000 years ago even though it has been overrun and changed hands 15-plus times since.

Letter: Being Christian doesn’t mean being tolerant of all behaviors

I want to add my name to congratulate The Times for adding columnist Star Parker to your opinion page. I have seen her before on several TV shows offering ideas and good goals. She is a smart black woman who spent many years on welfare and food stamps until she brought herself up by hard work and her bootstraps.

Letter: How to tell a newcomer to the South about the need to wave

Having lived all but 10 years of my adult life in the Southeastern part of the United States, I am well aware that this region has some communication customs that are not necessarily recognized in other parts of the nation.

Letter: Christian values should embrace a tolerance for our differences

The headline read "Christian persecution grows in America." I don't know if columnist Star Parker wrote the headline or someone at The Times did, but, it was probably intended to be inflammatory and divisive. That seems to be the goal of the modern media these days.
