Letter: Educational value of garden at Enota should factor into plans

Recent research in the field of education emphasizes the importance of the "softer side" of our schools. Students behave better, focus better and remember more if they are relaxed and have chances during the day to enjoy music, art and, yes, recess.

Letter: Columnist tells only part of story on nuclear power

In his Wednesday column about the Public Service Commission and Georgia Power, Tom Crawford has done what most journalist do today - tell part of the story.

I write following your articles in The Times about the impending destruction of the Smartville garden at Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy. What a gem this garden is!

Letter: Choosing love, peace that faith offers is path to happiness

Recently I got inebriated and I had a hangover the next morning, but instead of feeling bad, I felt renewed. And recently, I hugged many nice ladies, and even hugged some men. And recently at times, I laughed so hard tears ran down my cheeks.

Letter: Enota garden and its impact are worth saving

I am writing to object to the destruction of the Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy Smartville garden to build a parking lot. This garden is unlike any school garden that I have seen because of the unusual plant materials and the masterful incorporation of environmental ideas into the design.

Letter: State senator off base in saying Christianity is under attack

I'm glad columnist Dick Yarbrough saw that state Sen. Joshua McKoon had an opportunity to make his case for "religious freedom," but I wonder what world the senator inhabits. It certainly isn't the one I know.

So far, 2016 has not been a great year for political normalcy, musical icons or, of late, old presidents whose attitudes for their times don't fit well with current mainstream ideals.

Dick Yarbrough: State senator makes his case for religious freedom bill

A couple of weeks ago, I was highly critical of the efforts of proponents of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and particularly of State Sen. Josh McKoon, R-Columbus. The senator did a smart thing: He reached out and asked for the opportunity to explain his position directly to you.

Letter: Alter signs to make drivers stop

Here's a thought for Gainesville and Hall County: Since nearly 99 percent of the drivers don't stop for stop signs, maybe they could paint them black with the word "Go" on them. Just maybe someone would honor it.
