Tom Crawford: Georgians get 2 punches to gut from bills on guns, health care

Within the space of 24 hours, Georgians suffered two devastating blows from their governor and their congressional delegation. I wonder if the state will ever recover from them.

Letter: Author of recent letter should realize the real plight immigrants face

I read with interest the letter from Teena Welch on undocumented immigrants. She stated "I notice a lot of Latinos who are being deported have been here for years. Why in the world did they not take steps in all that time to become legal?"

Letter: Retirees and empty-nesters also can appreciate in-town living

City life is not just for professionals and millennials. Anyone can appreciate the ease of accessibility that in-town living offers. Within walking distance of the square in Gainesville is the Arts Council, the public library, the post office, several churches, a university and miles of walking trails as well as shops and restaurants.

Letter: Parents should give their children the right priorities from the start

The reason God expelled Satan from heaven is because his priorities and motives were all wrong. This is what happened to the first family in the garden of paradise, between Cain and Abel and God's priorities and motives seen in Noah in building the ark.

Letter: Congress puts money, effort toward curing Alzheimer’s

This year, the annual cost of caring for individuals living with Alzheimer's or other dementias will reach $259 billion, $175 billion of which comes in direct costs to Medicare and Medicaid. Yet in 2016, for every $100 the U.S. government spent on Alzheimer's research, $16,000 was spent by Medicare and Medicaid to care for those living with the disease.

Letter: If you don’t want to fear the law, come into the US legally

In reading the letter on Thursday's Opinion page from Arturo Adame, I am quite dumbfounded. But that's not a state new to me in the last few months. It never ceases to amaze me that some people just will never get "it," no matter what.

Letter: Program to detain immigrants leads to distrust among Latino residents

Hall County's 287(g) program is halting growth in our cities and county. Immigration Customs Enforcement isn't simply there to keep our citizens and residents safe, but to keep Latino people in fear. The Latino community doesn't believe ICE is out to deport the worst criminals.

Letter: Hall landfill is a fine example of one residents can live with

If the people who are objecting to the proposed landfill would visit the Hall County Landfill off Candler Highway, they would see how beautifully it is managed and operated. It is practically invisible as a landfill and resembles only a grassy hill. There is no smell at all and no trash or garbage anywhere visible. All of us who live here should be very appreciative of how our waste is taken care of, including tree stumps.

Last week, the Gainesville Campus of the University of North Georgia was the site of a community forum offered by the Latino Student Association to discuss rights students and others have when confronted by law enforcement. Gwinnett County state Rep. Brenda Lopez, an attorney specializing in immigration, discussed legal options people have in such cases.

Guest column: Budget cuts could threaten legal services for state’s poor

We recently helped a mother and her five children avoid eviction from their home that was scheduled to happen the following day. All in a day, our attorney found and pointed out flaws in previous legal proceedings, negotiating with the Department of Community Affairs that oversaw the housing unit our client and her family lived in. The family of six was spared from being homeless and allowed to stay in their home until a new lease they had in the works began.
