Casey Cagle: State leaders seek legislation to ‘back the badge’

Protect and serve - Georgia's law enforcement officers uphold this noble call to action every day when they leave the comfort of their homes and families. Honorable men and women of the badge all across our state willingly put themselves in harm's way to protect their fellow citizens.

Letter: Georgia and all states should celebrate their individual histories

I congratulate The Times for having a small article about "Georgia celebrates 284th birthday, in the Feb. 13 paper, page 4A, located in the lower left corner. I live in Savannah for 20 years and attending this birthday celebration event each year, I thought that this birthday celebration of Georgia's history was observed through the state. However, I learned that this was not really true.

Letter: Don’t downplay impact protests can have on our nation’s leaders

Your editorial Feb. 5, "Trump's foes pay the high price of losing" isn't being considerate of the rights of his "foes." The sub heading read, "Those opposing president should focus less on protest marches, more on winning votes."

RE: Fundraiser to support family of toddler killed in collision. Thank you just seems so inadequate for everything that has been done for us in our time of grief.

Letter: True patriots believe in compassion, but not in importing terrorism

Recently I had lunch with 10 men about my age. The question was asked, How many of you served in the military? Six of those men had served in various branches and for varying periods of time. These were men who served post World War II. I believe that is a higher percentage than any subsequent generation.

Letter: Violent protesters ignore fair election, free speech

I would like to comment on the protests taking place across this nation. I must say I have never seen such childish, petty and stupid behavior. These people do not believe in our Constitution nor in American liberty. Donald Trump was legally elected, fair and square, yet the extreme socialist left will not accept that fact. The real hardworking, patriotic American people have spoken and the protesters need to just get over it.
