Letter: Listen to facts about styrene, not hyped up scare tactics

The recent hysteria about styrene emissions from our company, Mincey Marble, is sadly based on speculation and exaggeration, not science and fact.

Dick Yarbrough: Georgia's drought again may require a divine solution

Uh oh. Here we go again. I have been told that we are beginning to experience drought conditions in the state. Somebody needs to alert Dr. Gil Watson, the world's greatest preacher. There is no question he can soon have some serious raindrops falling on our heads.

Letter: Trump’s backers need to check facts, remember history

Thanks to The Times for the fact checking it has been doing recently. Unfortunately, it's too late. Donald Trump's supporters either won't listen or don't care. When a candidate for president says he could shoot someone in Times Square and not lose any votes, you know we're all in trouble.

Letter: ‘Miss Beth’ at Parks and Rec one of Gainesville’s greatest jewels

Letter: Letter deriding global warming misses key point

On Thursday, W.T. "Ted" Hinds made a great point in regard to climate change discussions, that we should "Be careful." It's ironic really, when the people he argues against are the very people who are trying to urge caution. Unfortunately, he does not take his own advice when it comes to the this divisive topic of climate change, which he thinks he is qualified to write of.
