LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Marine still held in Mexico
Posted: October 17, 2014

Contrast Bowe Bergdahl, a traitor by any measure, and Andrew Tahmooressi, a decorated two-term Marine with honorable service in Afghanistan suffering from PTSD. What is the difference? The Mexicans are not asking for the release of terrorists from Guantanamo!

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Jesus really was in that park
Posted: September 26, 2014

As the senior pastor of the church that sponsors “Jesus in the Park,” I wanted to express the appreciation of Trinity United Methodist Church, as well as my personal gratitude, to all of the people who helped make it such a great day.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Catfish breathes sigh of relief
Posted: September 26, 2014

I enjoyed, as always, Lee Walburn’s column last Saturday, and can well understand his reluctance to kiss a catfish to benefit the Coosa River Basin Initiative. I asked the catfish what she thought about it, and she said she wasn’t any crazier about the idea of having to kiss Walburn than he was.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Sounding the alarm against ‘an invasion force’
Posted: September 21, 2014

A national alarm is going off, if our citizens will pay attention. It is the warning that our sovereign nation is being invaded by Muslim immigrants who care nothing about America, her goodness, her history, her wellbeing. Instead, they come to sequester in separate communities and simmer until the time is right to break forth in rebellion against our nation.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: An unsettling Southern tradition
Posted: September 21, 2014

I’m a Southerner. It’s as simple as that. I was born and raised in the South, and it’s the only place I’ve called home — and to be quite honest, I love it here. What’s not to love? It’s a beautiful place, full of patriotism and an eccentric spirit, with a culture of its own.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Thanks to the community
Posted: September 21, 2014

Each Labor Day weekend, the Knights of Columbus of Saint Mary’s Catholic Church invest more than $10,000 and hundreds and hundreds of hours preparing our annual barbecue to feed our friends and neighbors in Northwest Georgia.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Coach Windle has been a blessing
Posted: September 21, 2014

I’ve heard of many things while living my 84 years, but nothing that exceeds the extensive depth of service that Coach Buddy Windle gave in counseling, coaching and caring for his students at Chattooga High.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: County should maintain stream protections
Posted: September 07, 2014

There are not many preventable horrors that are worse than surface mining. Ranging from open pit to strip mining to mountaintop removal, all are tremendously destructive. One has only to look at images of surface mining to realize the impact such activities have environmentally, not to mention aesthetically, on our world.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Democrats vs. Republicans, nobody wins
Posted: September 07, 2014

Given all the TV and media exposure about the gridlock in the U.S. government today, I wondered what it might have been like if some of our historical figures adhered to today’s Democrat or Republican agendas. Here are a few “maybes:”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: LPNs being cast aside
Posted: August 31, 2014

Obamacare has been the focal point of mainstream news for many years. It is a major concern, especially to those who can’t afford healthcare — including unemployed individuals and senior citizens. What has not been addressed is the plight of the healthcare provider, specifically those individuals in the nursing profession who are Licensed Practical Nurses.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Rome’s natural potential
Posted: August 31, 2014

My husband and I recently returned from an RV trip during which we visited two communities where we were able to see how small and large cities have developed recreational trail systems. The two communities differed in both size and prosperity.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Pleasant policing
Posted: August 24, 2014

As I was going to get my morning paper on Sunday morning a Floyd County police car pulled into our driveway and asked if I was on my way to get the paper. He got out of his vehicle and handed the paper to me.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Bennett gets goats
Posted: August 24, 2014

To the Clay Bennett critics: If you all had your way, all the television stations would carry FOX news 24/7. Same way with the Rome News-Tribune. There would be nothing for a cartoon other than stick figures of Obama. Oh wait. That is all there was for five years, before the RN-T starting putting Clay Bennett cartoons in their newspaper.
