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 ...

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.

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

OK, Georgia Tech fans, give me your best shot. I asked for it. You have shown me over the past two decades that you never forget two things: the Pythagorean theorem and my editorial sideswipes at your institution.

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.
