Letter: Voices of hatred, war shouted their way to election victory

Now the election is over, I'd like to thank a few letter writers for making it an ugly and sordid testament to the depths some people will sink to manipulate the public. You know who you are.

Letter: Totems, thought germs, and how we can spread them

We live in a world filled with germs. As we go about our daily lives, we come into contact with thousands of them. Sometimes they infect our vital organs, and if they're successful, they reproduce using our bodies and spread to another host.

Letter: Clinton’s actual ‘experience’ is nothing to brag about in a leader

I agree with the main point of Jim Scharnagel's letter Friday that both Clinton and Trump leave a lot to be desired as a president, but one is going to win. However, I greatly disagree that he feels Clinton is a much better candidate. He mentions her "knowledge and experience in grappling with the numerous problems a president must address." However, he gives zero examples of her "knowledge and experience." This is because she has neither; she is totally inept and has been for the past 40 years. Examples:

Letter: Nation falls shy of attaining its democratic ideal in 3 key measures

In 1971, Howard Zinn measured our government against the harshest of all standards, the ideal of democracy. Against this, man's achievements in 1971 or 2016, although worthy of praise, fall short of ideal. Zinn measured our shortages against 10 categories. As we close Election Day 2016, at least three of those deserve another measurement: ballot access, freedom of individuality and the opportunity to protest.

Letter: Stewardship, education are the keys to survival for hemlocks

Gratitude is much on our minds as we approach the Thanksgiving season and reflect on our blessings: families, friends, the beautiful part of the country we live in and its bountiful natural resources, our freedom to enjoy them and, yes, our responsibility and privilege to protect these treasures. But part of this picture is in grave danger.

Dick Yarbrough: Skeeter has his own unique take on election

One of the dangers of providing you with my opinions each week - besides not having a clue where to put commas - is that it is easy to lose touch with reality and start acting like all the media pundits who think they are so smart that their IQs should be measured with a yardstick. My momma didn't raise me like that.

Ron Martz: A slanted perspective on campaign

No matter whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump wins the presidency on Tuesday, the biggest loser in this bizarre election cycle will be the American media.

Letter: Nonprofit transit program helps seniors maintain lives of mobility

It is time to think about our older adults and what they need to stay active, healthy and independent. It is time to think about our grandparents, older parents, older neighbors and friends. It is time to make them a priority. It is time to adopt and embrace a senior transportation program that keeps them from being isolated.

Letter: Forget Clinton’s emails; Trump’s flip-flops, policy ideas are far worse

RE: Hillary Clinton's emails. This seeming rehash of this subject resulted from the recent untimely action of FBI Director James Comey reopening his initial statement that the matter was closed.

Letter: Voters shouldn’t pick candidates merely on looks, race or gender

In 1962, when I was a lad of 10, I went with my mother to visit one of her friends. Upon arrival, the governor's race was discussed, and my mother said, "I'm going to vote for Carl Sanders because he is so handsome." My mother's friend agreed that ol' Carl was a very handsome man and she was going to vote for him for the same reason.

Letter: There is hope for nation if we vote with our true conscience

Is there still hope for America? It is my hope voters will look to the real issues facing our country and the necessity for a change in our direction, and not vote based solely on popularity. Let's face it; the two people running for president are flawed.

Tom Crawford: Isakson’s health is a valid issue in Senate race

There's not much suspense about who will win Georgia's U.S. Senate race. Republican incumbent Johnny Isakson has been ahead of his Democratic challenger, Jim Barksdale, by 10 points or more in most recent polls.
