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.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Invest in global education
Updated: June 28, 2014 - 8:03 pm

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.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Support fresh air
Posted: June 13, 2014

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.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Obsession with guns is killing us
Posted: June 13, 2014

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Snowden more honorable than Obama
Posted: June 13, 2014

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.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Loop needs traffic engineering
Posted: June 13, 2014

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?

Posted: June 06, 2014

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?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: We remembered the fallen
Posted: June 06, 2014
