Guest column: PSC works to keep rates low, energy flowing

As a Public Service Commissioner, I have spent the last six years meeting constituents, listening to concerns and discussing energy issues, speaking to civic clubs, advancing technology-things you would expect from an elected regulator.

Letter: Experience leads to knowledge, which is how we identify climate change

How do we gain knowledge? Usually through experience. In David Ford's book, "Theology: A Very Short Introduction," he used an apple to illustrate that we gain knowledge about an apple only after we have held it, tasted it, cooked it, picked it, etc. Once we've done that, we've gained knowledge about it.

I would like to thank Johnny Vardeman for his excellent article on the history of the involvement of the Gainesville Lions Club with City Park. It was Lions' community activities, especially their support of people who are blind and visually impaired, that attracted me to the club many years ago.

Letter: Raising lakes, building new ones could ease drought effects

In my memory, based on 32 years of residence in Georgia, our lakes were very low in 1986. They struggled to reach full pool in 1988. They were low again in 1999-2000. Thanks to hurricanes in 2004-2005, full pool was reached. In 2006-2008, Lake Lanier dropped to 25 feet below full pool (1,046 feet). In 2009, thanks to a record December-January rainfall, it was full again. In 2010-2015, Lanier ranged from 1,065 to 1,071 feet. With above average rain in 2015, Lanier rose to 1,074 feet.

Letter: True Christians should support ministry to help sex trade victims

I suggest that the Hall County Commissioners do not reject the Straight Street Ministry's proposal to build a gated home for young women (18 and older) who were victims in sex trafficking. They should allow this ministry to move forward in Hall County and not be intimidated by some in the neighboring community who expressed fear that this building would lower their property values.

Letter: State PSC lets Ga. Power soak customers for nuke plant costs

In response to The Times' recent front page article on Georgia Power's nuclear study: Plant Vogtle reactor units No. 1 and No. 2 took 20 years to build and were 1,200 percent over budget. An additional two reactors under construction at Plant Vogtle now are three years behind schedule and $3 billion over budget. The new reactors were supposed to come on line this year but are only 30 percent finished, so the situation is bound to get worse.
