Letter: There’s no cause to celebrate this failed president

I greatly disagree with Dick Meyer's "give thanks for Obama" tribute and suspect at least 60 percent or more of Americans do. I feel he has greatly overestimated any success he attributes to Obama.

Have we gone totally, completely insane?

Letter: Franklin offered valuable lesson on open-minded rhetoric

Even a casual observation of current events would confirm that American citizens have become more polarized in thought and rhetoric than we could have imagined a decade ago. With anger that often approaches hostility, groups are set against groups, with members of each group vowing 100 percent ownership of the truth. Opinions are becoming more solidified than Stone Mountain.

Letter: Quest for tourism money is ruining Chattahoochee River habitat

The love of money destroys the beauty and peace of our rivers. It is such a sad commentary to the people of Helen, Robertstown and White County that the almighty dollar means more to them than the health and well-being of the beautiful Chattahoochee River.

Letter: Nation must join in love to end violence

Once again, I find myself unable to remain silent amid the violence perpetrating itself upon innocent people. The massacre of the Emmanuel Nine in church Bible study in Charleston, S.C., on June 17, 2015; 49 in Orlando, Fla., at a nightclub June 12; and in July, in Minnesota, Louisiana and California, all further widen the bleeding wound in the nation's history.

Tom Crawford: Metro Atlanta town going down a grassy slope

When Mayor Ted Terry talks about the recent decision by him and the Clarkston City Council to dramatically reduce the penalty for the possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, he is careful to make one distinction to his interviewer.

Letter: Clinton has her flaws, but GOP’s obsession with her is pointless

You would think that Sunday's columnists Jonah Goldberg and Ron Martz might reflect on the tragic events last week in Minneapolis, Baton Rouge and Dallas. But no, these Republican apologists are obsessed with Hillary Clinton.

Editorial: Third parties try to pick the ballot lock

In two weeks, the Republican Party will gather in Cleveland to officially nominate its presidential nominee for the November ballot. A week later in Philadelphia, the Democrats will do the same.

Ron Martz: A case of separate justice

Donald Trump has never said much with which I agree, especially since he became a presidential candidate. Much of that has to do with the fact that he is rude, crude, ethically challenged and speaks in platitudes rather than substance.

Dick Yarbrough: Add state parks to Georgia's brag book

I am late getting to this subject with summer whizzing along, but not so much so that we can't still squeeze it in the state of Georgia's brag book, along with Vidalia onions, St. Simons sunsets, rainbow trout and Ray Charles Robinson. I am talking about our state parks.

Letter: Clintons again proven to be above the law

How can this be? The director of the FBI admits Hillary Clinton lied, under oath, with regard to knowing information in her personal emails was classified, with regard to the number of servers she was using and with regard to the facts that information in the emails was altered or destroyed after the investigation began. All felonies.

Letter: We should keep Brecklynn and her family’s needs in our prayers

I want to thank Kristen Oliver and The Times for sharing the article on Brecklynn Allgood's health problems, and for sharing her beautiful picture.

Letter: FBI’s failure to prosecute Clinton violates America’s rule of law

With the punt by FBI Director James Comey, I believe we have witnessed the most devastating blow to the rule of law that I have seen in my lifetime of 91 years. This whole episode stinks so much it would burn your nostrils if you were standing on Mars.

Letter: Declaration’s meaning is lost when we recycle same Congress

I applaud the Times for publishing the Declaration of Independence each July 4. It is a time of refreshing to remember the power of our original document of freedom.
