When reading the July 5, 2014, Calhoun Times, the cartoon by Rob Rogers was revealing. A high-rise office building contained messages on the upper stories such as: “Mega Corp. Worshiping The Almighty Dollar Since Forever,” and “Paying Taxes Violates Our Religious Freedom!” and “Government Oversight Is A Mortal Sin!”
I am writing this in regard to the recent conflict brewing between U.S. President Obama and Russian President Putin.
Shame on you and your staff for putting the article on the rise of armed robberies above the fold on a holiday weekend.
Norman Arey’s column on July 3 was outstanding. I usually do not read the sports section, but the bold letters of “Wake up America, You may be out of time soon” were eye-catching.
During my travels of the last 50 years, I have noticed that almost every town has a story, an important marker, or a cannon mounted at the city square. Today, you can still see these relics of yesteryear. Many of them are in bad repair or weathered. The stories are told by townfolk who have forgotten more than we will ever know. Why were these last vestiges of forgotten eras left there? They were left there as a symbol to remind us of their struggles in the American Experience.
In response to the pomp and circumstance surrounding the police dog’s funeral in LaFayette:
The members of the Benjamin Neely family would like to express our appreciation to the citizens of Rome for such grand treatment during our family reunion, held last week. The Hawthorn Inn was a great place to stay, and the Greater Rome Convention and Visitors Bureau staff was most helpful in making our event a success.
The purpose of my letter is to address safety issues of travel on Ga. 101, Rockmart Highway.
The Chambers Street 4 Kids committee would like to first and foremost thank God and we’d like to thank everyone that donated and came out to help celebrate our fourth annual Fathers and Kids Day Block Party on Saturday, June 14.
On April 3, I blacked out and fell face forward in the Harbin Clinic parking lot. I was unconscious. I would like to thank the good Samaritans who called 911 and stayed with me until the ambulance arrived. My belongings went with me to the emergency room and not a thing was missing from my pockbook! Thank you, thank you to the kind people who helped me.
I’ve wanted to write this letter for some time now. Maybe someone will catch on and be readyto ride with me.
I read with dismay and disbelief the June 11 Calhoun Times article, “City approves revised $1 billion nuclear power contract.”
Question: Do animals in the wild have obesity problems? I don’t recall seeing a wild animal that appeared to be fatter than other members of his group.
I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of passionate Bonner Scholars at this year’s Bonner Leadership Institute held at Berry College. Most scholars were stunned to discover that in some places in Sudan, a young woman is more likely to die in childbirth than finish the 8th grade, or that nearly 40 percent of the world’s children of primary school age still cannot read.
I feel fortunate to have been blessed thus far in my life. In my early childhood I grew up in the Johnson School Community.
Concerning the letter on the editorial page, June 3, about Vietnam, “the other forgotten war” after the Korean War.
While I do appreciate your article on Congressman Jack Kingston’ views on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s carbon regulation, I must disagree with him. As a kid, spending long summer days biking, running, swimming, and playing outside games is the personification of a great day spent. However, if you’re a kid living in the Metro-Atlanta area, your day might get ruined by constant wheezing, coughing, and maybe even an asthma attack.
Two of my children have recently returned from college. Both have been exposed to students from other developed countries who wonder why the citizens of the southern United States are so obsessed with guns, killing, and now carrying guns in public.
It was Wednesday, the last week in May, as I was watching Fox and Friends; they showed a clip of Brian Williams of NBC interviewing Edward Snowden. I didn’t catch the question but Snowden was saying, in essence, that he knew he had to run, for the authorities would surely put him in prison. Not to be heard from again.
Since the opening of the Armuchee Connector, we have seen some relief with traffic congestion on U.S. 27 from Turner McCall Boulevard to Old Dalton Road, but at what cost?
Hardly a day goes by that we don’t hear some reference to the Federal Reserve and its importance to our economy by controlling the money supply. Just what is the Federal Reserve anyway?
