Letter: Enota garden and its impact are worth saving

I am writing to object to the destruction of the Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy Smartville garden to build a parking lot. This garden is unlike any school garden that I have seen because of the unusual plant materials and the masterful incorporation of environmental ideas into the design.

Letter: State senator off base in saying Christianity is under attack

I'm glad columnist Dick Yarbrough saw that state Sen. Joshua McKoon had an opportunity to make his case for "religious freedom," but I wonder what world the senator inhabits. It certainly isn't the one I know.

Letter: Donating cord blood can help a mother give life to others

This Mother's Day, we celebrate the life-giving power of mothers and are reminded of the joyous event of giving birth, an event that is celebrated by friends and family, and an event that can give hope to many other people through the donation of umbilical cord blood.

Editorial: Making a worthy change for a 20

So far, 2016 has not been a great year for political normalcy, musical icons or, of late, old presidents whose attitudes for their times don't fit well with current mainstream ideals.

Dick Yarbrough: State senator makes his case for religious freedom bill

A couple of weeks ago, I was highly critical of the efforts of proponents of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and particularly of State Sen. Josh McKoon, R-Columbus. The senator did a smart thing: He reached out and asked for the opportunity to explain his position directly to you.

I've been thinking about resiliency. It can be found in successful Fortune 500 companies and exists throughout our community. What is resiliency?

Letter: Alter signs to make drivers stop

Here's a thought for Gainesville and Hall County: Since nearly 99 percent of the drivers don't stop for stop signs, maybe they could paint them black with the word "Go" on them. Just maybe someone would honor it.

Letter: Times should have reported effort to rename courthouse

As a subscriber of this "newspaper" for some 60 years, I am accustomed to you guys reporting some mundane local events while missing some real news, but not reporting Doug Collins' efforts to name the local federal courthouse after Judge Sidney O Smith is inexcusable. This happens to be news to a lot of people that knew and loved Judge Smith, who was born and lived here most of his life.

Tom Crawford: It's a bad time for state lawmaker to get DUI

It's never a good time for a politician to get arrested for driving under the influence, but it's especially bad to get pulled in by law enforcement when the next election is less than six weeks away.

Letter: If socialism were installed in US, whose type would it resemble?

A recent headline read, "In Venezuela, no toilet paper and now lousy phone service." A couple of days before, Yahoo news had "Venezuela to ration malls, change clocks, to save power."

Letter: Voters’ voices are being ignored in primary process

In early January, our country was still trying to decide who should be our rightful president. Al Gore had won the popular vote, and George W. Bush had won the electoral college. I, like so many other Americans, had decided our system was seriously flawed.

Editorial: Salutes to service for Carl Rogers, Jackie Wallace

Two Hall County leaders with very different jobs are stepping away from them this year. Thus, it's an appropriate time to offer a salute to both Carl Rogers and Jackie Wallace for the work each has done to make Hall County a better place.

Letter: Rogers’ service to community and colleagues will be missed

There comes a time when we all go home and Carl Rogers has chosen this to be his time to leave the Georgia legislature. He is looking forward to spending more time with Linda, his wife and high school sweetheart, and his children and grandchildren.
