Letter: New president is a threat to nation’s future

Whoever wrote the editorial in the Jan. 22 edition of The Times had their head buried in the sand. The gist of the editorial was that we should relent and assist Donald Trump to make America great again. It would be asinine to spin our wheels on a government gone completely awry.

Letter: ‘Palestine’ is a term used by Israelis to label Arabs

Letter: Columnist’s harsh potshots at Dems were not funny, seemed out of line

Saturday's column by your resident humorist, Dick Yarbrough, about the Democratic Party's "left turn" wasn't funny; it managed to be both silly and ignorant at the same time. Mr. Yarbrough is what you'd call a "Republican humorist." which is an oxymoron. Dick, you might have to look that word up. If there's a Republican version of Will Rogers, it's not Dick Yarbrough.

Letter: South supports president, but he should switch Super Bowl teams

Dear Mr. President: On Nov. 9, my alarm went off and I started to feel the depression setting in thinking America would still be on this wrong road we traveled down the last eight years. To my excitement, I went to Google and immediately it had your picture as our new president-elect.

Letter: Cost of birth control pills doesn’t justify charging taxpayers for it

Re Sunday story "Political changes lead women to seek new birth control options:" Nicole Mason, quoted in this article, apparently confuses "not having access to birth control" with the possible requirement of having to pay for birth control. She says it's "upsetting" to think that women are switching to more invasive (and far more costly) methods of control such as IUDs simply because currently their insurance (or the government) will pay for such procedures.

Letter: Stakeholders in exit battle need to listen to, love their neighbors

As a member of the Martin Road Stakeholders Committee, watching the progress of the battle over Exit 14/Martin Road expansion has been interesting. There are many players in this struggle, from the government officials at all levels to the commercial property owners, the industry-freight companies and the homeowners and their families. With that many contenders, there's always room for complete breakdown of communication, perspective, objectivity and especially respect. I've faced the challenge myself.

Editorial: It’s still your America

North Georgians awoke this morning as they did the Sunday before, to another January day of church services, household chores, dinner plans, the usual fare. The sun may not be shining, based on a gloomy forecast, yet it did not fall from the sky and incinerate the planet.

Dick Yarbrough: A turn to the left is not what Democrats need

I hope you will forgive me, but I am going against my better judgment today and sounding like one of those inch-wide, inch-deep political pundits and blah-blah bloggers who can be more boring than a tree stump.

Letter: Inauguration draws little interest inside area restaurant

I was excited about watching our new president get sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. At lunch, I made it a point to pick a restaurant that had TVs so that I could watch the ceremonies. The place I picked had it going on, all the TVs were tuned to various affiliates covering the swearing-in festivities as to get several perspectives. They even had the closed caption on so that if you wanted to you could keep up with the sound that was missing. My hat goes off to this restaurant because it was well prepared.

Letter: Growing clean energy can offer the US a new road to prosperity

Secretary of Energy nominee Rick Perry was right when he said that climate change was a danger, but we had to combat it in a way that does not hurt our economy. Fortunately, now that solar and wind energy have become so cheap, now we can both control climate change and help our economy at the same time.

Letter: What God gave Israelis as their homeland can’t be taken away by UN

Regardless of what the United Nations says or what individual countries or leaders say, the whole nation of Israel belongs to the Jewish people, not just a part of it. God gave it to them 4,000 years ago even though it has been overrun and changed hands 15-plus times since.
