Letter: Young people should get involved to make their world better

We need to help the youth get on board, whether over religion, drug usage or radical political views. The youth of this city need to take a stand. We as citizens are not just solely responsible for healing your community, but are required to do so. We have the right to have opinions and the ability to preach said opinions freely.

Letter: Trump video reveals a double standard over what racism is

So it's OK for Snoop Dogg to paint a black man's face like Donald Trump and then show him being assassinated on one of his videos, but someone can claim racial insensitivity over a Mardis Gras blackface and demand an apology.

Guest column: Congressional bills would improve effort to preserve North Georgia forests

The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest is home to some of our state's most scenic natural areas: the Cohutta Mountains, Brasstown Bald, Lake Rabun and the Appalachian Trail, to name a few. Thousands of miles of clear-running streams and rivers protected by many thousands of acres of forest help provide clean drinking water to the people of North Georgia. And with more than 10 million visitors each year, the National Forest is the outdoor recreation playground for Georgia's largest and ever-growing metropolitan area.

Tom Crawford: Speaker may seek to shift his power to governor's post

David Ralston is now being mentioned as a possible candidate for governor in 2018, which leads to an obvious question: Why would someone want to run for governor when he's already speaker of the Georgia House?

Editorial: Let the light shine in to keep government transparent

"Sunshine is the best disinfectant," attributed to Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis in 1913, doesn't refer to keeping your kitchen germ-free. It's the idea that only through transparency and application of the First Amendment can Americans monitor what their governments are doing.

Letter: Leaders should take sensible steps to lower US health costs

Our country is going the way of Greece and nobody seems willing to let our political leaders curb how much they spend. Hopefully someone, especially our federal and state political leaders, will consider the following and suggest ways to actually reduce the cost of health care.

Letter: Motorists should stick to posted speed limits during bridge work

My concern is with the traffic on Ga. 53 at the meeting of Hall and Forsyth counties. There is a bridge construction in progress and the posted speed limits are 45, 35, 45 mph. Even if the crews are not working, is still a posted speed. That does not mean people should be right on your bumper, flashing their high beams or leaving them on and harassing you. This happens mainly going from the bridge towards Gainesville in the mornings.

Letter: Immigration rules now lead to deportation for traffic cases

Thanks for your editorial on Sunday regarding immigration issues. I think there is one fact you may have gotten wrong and that is that under the new administration, every noncitizen is equally prioritized for deportation when they go before the immigration court.

Tom Crawford: Lawmakers say goodbye to casinos, hello to yachts

The General Assembly session is more than two-thirds done and on track to adjournment. It's been a session more noteworthy for what wasn't done rather than what was, as illustrated by the casino gambling bills.

Letter: Money for local bus service could go to support private taxis

Every time I see one of those buses, I know it is costing us money. Why not subsidise the local taxi services? Let them handle all of the maintenance, employee expenses, etc.? That way a local business makes the money and some driver supports his or her family and pays taxes. Local businesses have enough to be concerned with.
