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: Change is needed at Enota, but spare its garden

Since 1995, the name "Enota" has been synonymous with educational excellence in the Gainesville school system. My three sons attended Enota and I had the honor of serving as principal there for seven years. During that time, Enota was named a Georgia School of Excellence, the only Gainesville school ever to receive that honor. Since then, it has only become a better place for children to live and learn.

Editorial: Deal’s vetoes crash the party

When this year's session of the General Assembly began in January, we pondered whether lawmakers would address issues of substance or, as they often do, pander to election-year politics with bills aimed at currying favor with certain groups of voters.

Letter: Obama may be stopped in Syria before he repeats past mistakes

Secretary of State John Kerry just issued a statement on the conflict in Syria indicating the United States would not allow the rebel controlled city of Aleppo to fall to the Syrian government. That's like Russia saying it would not allow the U.S. government to maintain control of the city of Dallas, Texas. This policy is arrogant and illegitimate.

Dick Yarbrough: G-Day expense list for rapper is ... well, ludicrous

Letter: Let designers of new Enota school find a way to keep its garden intact

Gainesville has a long history of community support of education. There is no school that exhibits this history of successful community/educator collaboration more dramatically than Enota. My daughter is an Enota graduate. Its administration and teachers have a steadfast and deep commitment to engaging parents, interested citizens and community leaders in creative ways that further their mission. This personal, cooperative and collaborative relationship is one of the ingredients that makes Enota special.

As a retired educator from Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy, I have followed very closely the discussions involving the proposed rebuilding of Enota.

Letter: Superintendent wrong in saying Enota’s learning can’t measure up

Although we have been encouraged to see the community support and media coverage of issues surrounding the building of the new Enota Multiple Intelligence Academy, we were highly concerned by comments made by Gainesville Schools Superintendent Dr. Wanda Creel in the article, "Enota brainstorming includes plan of construction delay for ideas to preserve garden," published Sunday in The Times.

Letter: Editorial incorrectly credited Jackson with creating Bank of U.S. he opposed

I enjoyed the thematic thrust of your editorial, "Worthy change for a 20" of April 17. I just, however, take issue with one observation you made about President Andrew Jackson. You wrote, "As president he created the Bank of the United States." The historical record will show he did not create the Bank of the U.S.
