Letter: Fed, banks have piled up global debt they now can’t pay

Every action the Federal Reserve and western central banks have taken for the last eight years has been to the purpose of keeping the banks of the central banking system solvent. Otherwise they are dead. They died in 2008.

Editorial: Keep elections in English

This editorial, you'll note, is written in English. As are the other items on this page and throughout this newspaper. Though Gainesville and Hall County have a large Spanish-speaking populace, it's not cost-effective for us to print a bilingual product for those readers.

Letter: Change in federal drug laws would clear way to make cannabis oil in Georgia

With some minor enhancements, House Bill 722 would offer Georgians the benefits of medical cannabis needed by many and eliminate dangers from its use. Having witnessed the negative impact of marijuana on individuals, I was against efforts to create a path to legalize medical cannabis. Then I began learning about the many classes of compounds known as cannabinoids that make up the cannabis plant and the unique role each compound may play in our health care.

Letter: Bill to expand Medicaid access for Georgians could save lives

When I woke up that morning in December and felt the dull ache of depression thudding through my body I was a little bit surprised. Except for a few minor stresses life was pretty good, but sure enough, there was that dark expanse of loneliness, sadness and along with it all the physical symptoms of depression. Physical symptoms that include lethargy, inability to concentrate, slowed motor skills and an inability to express myself through speech and writing with clarity.

Letter: Medical bills can add up fast if you have no insurance

Early in December, I had to miss work and visit the doctor. Winter has never been kind to me, and, as I grow older, my body becomes more susceptible to the changing of the seasons. I was diagnosed with a touch of bronchitis and given two shots and two prescriptions, a simple diagnosis with a simple cure. Except that the latter turned out not to be the case. When my symptoms persisted, I went back two weeks later and received three more prescriptions.

Letter: Whatever candidate or party we choose, vote for our democratic freedoms

I am not a political type of person, but feel that one of the many things our voting populous should consider is the type of party, whether it is Republican or Democrat. That it still remain a party that is based on democracy. Our values and beliefs are about freedom and the Bill of Rights and our Constitution.

Doug Collins: One language unites a nation

Imagine that every member of your family or workplace spoke a different language. If scheduling, completing projects, and general communication isn't already enough of a challenge in your household or at your job, I'm sure you agree that the level of difficulty would reach a whole new level if no one understood anyone else.

Editorial: Why not trust the Constitution?

The U.S. Constitution is an amazing document in so many ways, not the least of which is its timeless nature. It has endured 200-plus years of societal and political changes though, like the fabled elephant to the blind men, it appears as different things to all who interpret it.

Dick Yarbrough: Much-loved fried shrimp are back at St. Simons grill

Perhaps this renewed love affair doesn't quite rise to the level of Humphrey Bogart's Rick finding Ingrid Bergman's Ilsa in "Casablanca" ("Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.").

Letter: Super Bowl again puts spotlight on domestic violence

Soon we'll gather with friends for the most watched television event of the year (if even just for the commercials). Last year the Super Bowl aired a public service announcement about ending domestic violence and sexual assault, following the surfacing of a graphic video in 2014 showing NFL player Ray Rice hitting his then-fiancée and dragging her unconscious body across the floor.
