Letter: St. Paul’s Christmas concert will celebrate true spirit of season

RE: Response to James Peters' letter of Monday: You likely missed out on some good music by not attending the Holiday concert you mentioned. Might I recommend that you attend Voices of North Georgia's Christmas concert entitled "Caroling! Caroling!" on Dec. 4 or Dec. 5 in the sanctuary of St. Paul United Methodist Church at Washington and Academy streets in Gainesville.

Letter: Brenau concert labeled ‘holiday’ because of timing at Thanksgiving

James Peters' letter in The Times on Monday suggesting that Brenau University chose to name its Holiday Concert "in favor of an abstract holiday" inaccurately reflects the program and its content.

Letter: ‘Scrooge’s’ cheap shot at Brenau concert is right out of Fox News

Every Christmas season needs a Scrooge, and James Peters' letter about the Brenau University Holiday Concert certainly fits the bill. Rather than enjoying a wonderful program of music, maybe Mr. Peters and company just prefer sitting in front of Fox News and listening to Bill O'Reilly vent about the collapse of Western civilization brought about by the red Starbucks coffee cup.

Letter: Deal should focus on highway dangers, not innocent refugees

Gov. Nathan Deal is anxious to protect us. Syrian refugees fleeing terrorism and war need asylum. Some of those refugees may potentially be ISIS terrorists. So Gov. Deal wants to keep them all out. It is an easy position to take, as it bears no expense to the state and makes him appear to be a concerned leader.

Letter: ‘Holiday’ concert not right without the ‘Christmas’

I wish to thank Dr. Steinhaus and Director Bobby Ivey for organizing and delivering a concert by the Music Department of Brenau for the public on Nov. 23. I think it is a great idea and it publicizes the name of Brenau University at a season that is traditionally merry.

Letter: Fighting to win is what has kept Americans free

I grew up the son of an Army officer well-schooled in military history and tactics. During family vacations and trips, my dad would often take us to Civil War battlefields or old Revolutionary War forts and spend hours wandering around, reading about their historical importance. He would always buy a couple of books to add to his home library.
