Editorial: Primary offers a limited menu

Head to a coffee shop these days and the number of options on the menu will give you more jitters than the java. Same with most fast-food restaurants, shoe stores, auto dealers. And don't get us started on the supermarket cereal aisle that seems to stretch to the horizon.

Letter: Letter was out of line in attacking Christians

Regarding Joan King's latest letter to the editor concerning Christianity being under attack, she doesn't buy any of it and according to her last statement believes "the very idea of Christians under attack is going to cost the taxpayers dearly in time, energy and lost revenue."

Letter: Highway safety agency needs to solve glut of freeway deaths

The lighted board across Interstate 985 says 494 people have died on Georgia's highways so far this year. We are in mid-May, so this means that more than 1,300 people will die on our highways this year unless we do something different.

Letter: House candidates join national GOP with wrong ideas

It was with utter incredulity that I read about the insane rantings of the Grand Old Party candidates for the 9th District U.S. House post May 9 in The Times. Their insistence on eliminating or severely reducing funds for many essential departments of the federal government is asinine since the states would be forced to take over these necessary functions without a sufficient source of additional funding.

Guest column: ‘Mr. B’ set tone for a ministry of compassion

I was in the fifth grade when I first stepped into Good News at Noon one Thursday night. In that I did not understand where I was going or why, one might say I was dragged there by my older sister.

Editorial: Mr. B. was Gainesville's own ‘Mother Teresa’

Most of us want to do right by those in need around us, but those intentions don't always lead to actions. We might see someone seeking spare change along the highway exit or in the town square, reach for our wallet, but often ask ourselves: "Is a couple dollars going to make a difference?"

Dick Yarbrough: Will Deal’s vetoes stall state education reform plans?

A governor's got to do what a governor's got to do, but Gov. Nathan Deal's veto of the Campus Carry bill and the Religious Reform bill makes me wonder if I wasted a year of my life in an effort that is not going to go unpunished.

Letter: Bathroom spat won’t end soon, but there are ways to solve it

The last time I was in a lady's bathroom was about 1937. I was 5. I have never seen ladies walk in a male bathroom, although I have heard that it has happened at sports arenas and stadiums because long lines of ladies were waiting at facilities designated for them.

Letter: Nation losing its moral compass with Christianity under attack

Never in my wildest imagination, when I was young, would I believe that I'd see conditions in America digress to the level we now live in. In our schools we are expressly forbidden to have scripture or prayer with our children as a part of their training for life. The very name of our Creator and Lord, Jesus Christ, cannot be mentioned without facing major disciplinary action. Public displays of the Christian faith in any form will get you serious legal and social problems from our government and many of our peers who have sold their souls, hearts and ...

Letter: Wouldn’t Beckstein still reach out to help any couple in need?

As I read the two stories side-by-side, one about the wonderful Mr. Gene Beckstein and the other about members of the board of Family Promise leaving, I couldn't help but wonder if Mr. Beckstein would have refused to serve a same-sex couple.

Letter: Playing stats, details out of place in story of coach’s ouster
