LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Government jobs
Posted: November 16, 2014

Now that the elections are over, I offer a little food for thought. In one of the governor’s TV ads, Gov. Nathan Deal stated he had, in his term of office, created over 300,000 new jobs. Then in one of senator-elect David Perdue’s TV ads he stated that government couldn’t create jobs.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Food trucks skirt rules
Posted: November 16, 2014

Being a habitual Krystal lover for many decades, I was enjoying my four Krystals, fries and a coke Saturday when to my shock and disbelief the carnival came to town. No rides, just food trailers across the driveway selling food. The banner attached to the fence of the former used car lot announced “Chow Town Park.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Cook right on Obama
Posted: November 16, 2014

Praise God for James Cook. I fully agree with James Cook that Obama has been the least-effective president that our country has ever had.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Participation makes US great
Posted: November 16, 2014

First, I would like to thank everyone who supported and voted for me in the County Commission race. Second, I would like to say congratulations to the winners of this election. They all are good people who care about our city, our state and our country. Anyone that puts themselves out there as a candidate and holds the offices after the elections are true American heros.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Sock project spreads cheer
Posted: November 16, 2014

The holidays are normally full of family gatherings and holiday fun, but please remember this time of year can be depressing for some. During the holiday season, our seniors could get lost in the shuffle.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fuller wrong on Fox rant
Posted: November 01, 2014

Regarding Mr. Kenneth Fuller’s recent rant against Fox News, “Uncivil discourse and the limits of free speech.” The comments by Dr. Keith Ablow that Mr. Fuller was referring to were actually from an Oct. 9 opinion piece online at and not viewed on the Fox News television channel. Dr. Ablow was subsequently interviewed on the John Gibson radio show on Fox radio on Oct. 14. Both column and radio show were clearly labeled as opinion.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: It’s in your hands
Posted: November 01, 2014

As I write, America stands at a pivotal point in her history. Will we return to the greatness of our forefathers’ America, or will President Obama and the extreme left complete their transformation of our country into a European-style socialist state?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: God is the only way
Posted: October 26, 2014

I am a very spiritual person and God has been speaking to me in my spirit as I have been praying lately. He is warning the people of The End.

Posted: October 26, 2014

Last week I heard about a house of worship where one group of worshippers yelled mean and hateful remarks at another group of members. Then I read an article in the newspaper about a group of football fans that screamed at the losing coach, “fire him, fire him.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Zombies inappropriate for cancer fund benefit
Posted: October 26, 2014

I was stunned to see the Oct. 5 issue of Roman Life, a traditional favorite section of the Sunday edition. The sight of so-called celebrity zombies/noted locals was revolting and not worthy of the cause to benefit the cancer fund.

Regarding the column “Frenzied NFL assaults show weird bias of sportswriting elite” in the Oct. 12 Our World section:

Posted: October 26, 2014

We are all God’s children, the good, the bad and the ugly. But it seems the ugly, in the freedom of press, the ugly has been showing up lately.

Posted: October 26, 2014

Gov. Nathan Deal has earned my vote for re-election.

Posted: October 26, 2014

A life-long Georgian who has been voting for 50 years, I can count the times I voted for a Democrat on one hand and have five fingers left over. But there is an election coming in which it will be easy to put party aside. In my opinion, Nathan Deal is corrupt.

Posted: October 19, 2014

We were at Floyd Medical Center one day in September be-cause I had to have surgery for bladder cancer. This is a major operation and, altogether, both surgery and recovery times added up to almost nine hours straight.
