Letter: Trump’s backers need to check facts, remember history

Thanks to The Times for the fact checking it has been doing recently. Unfortunately, it's too late. Donald Trump's supporters either won't listen or don't care. When a candidate for president says he could shoot someone in Times Square and not lose any votes, you know we're all in trouble.

If you want to see how badly politicians can mess up a state, look no farther than our neighbor North Carolina.

Editorial: Helping the poor connect the dots

Most of us can't fully imagine what it's like to be poor - not just in debt or behind on your bills, but really poor, as in lacking shelter, food, a job or a way to care for your children.

Letter: ‘Miss Beth’ at Parks and Rec one of Gainesville’s greatest jewels

As a lifetime resident of Gainesville-Hall County, I am especially aware of, and grateful for, all of the "pluses" that make our community an unbelievably great place to raise a family. Despite what sometimes seems to be unbridled and unnecessary growth, we still retain so very much of the small-town qualities and caring attitude that makes the community a premier place to put down roots.

Letter: Letter deriding global warming misses key point

On Thursday, W.T. "Ted" Hinds made a great point in regard to climate change discussions, that we should "Be careful." It's ironic really, when the people he argues against are the very people who are trying to urge caution. Unfortunately, he does not take his own advice when it comes to the this divisive topic of climate change, which he thinks he is qualified to write of.

Letter: County should protect health of its residents, deny Mincey

Moving to Gainesville wasn't a difficult choice. Our grandchildren live near Gainesville. We were charmed by Lake Lanier, nearby mountains, green parks, recreational options, educational resources, Gainesville Theater Alliance, the Arts Council, and much more. All of this in a city that in 2014 ranked No. 10 among top places to live in the USA. Throw in a beautiful new 55 and older community with a marina and we were hooked.

Letter: Don’t buy claim of ‘consensus’ on warming, or that CO2 is bad

Vernon Dixon made an interesting observation in his letter Sept. 9 pointing to what he claimed is a 97 percent consensus among climatologists about "man-made global warming." His point was "97 percent of climatology experts who accept the science of climate change," also "believe we must act decisively to combat it."

Ron Martz: Have we changed for the better since 9/11?

In the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, there was some thought that as a nation we would become united as at no time since the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

I spoke recently to the Peace Officers' Association of Georgia at their annual conference in Savannah and was privileged to witness a group of dedicated law enforcement officers being honored by the POAG for their heroism. Here are their stories, much abridged because of space limitations.

Letter: We know all about Clinton, so why not give Trump a shot?

Some elements of my observations will reflect my age. I'm a World War II veteran in my 89th year. While I have been determined to exit political controversies, it is difficult for me to resist.
