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.

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."

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: 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: Elections, legislative process are steered by media corporations

If you have watched the news in the last year, much has been said by commentators on the subject of media bias. In this case, bias means to control the beliefs of the people to drive their actions. The media has become a propaganda machine for an agenda many know little about.

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.

Letter: PC epidemic is rampant; the only real cure is truth

We're all familiar with the destructive and fatal PC (aka pernicious counterfeit) virus and some of its strains. The "don't profile and ignore" terrorist activity strain led to 13 murdered and many wounded at Fort Hood in Texas, several years ago.

Editorial: Hall residents feel the drill of tax increase

Tax increases are a bit like having a root canal at the dentist. Sometimes they're necessary, though always painful. And if the dentist doesn't work carefully, the agony is even greater.
