Letters to the Editor


LETTERS: Sheriff Conway, law enforcement community deserve our support

As a member of the “silent majority,” I am writing in support of Sheriff Butch Conway, especially after reading that a group actually formed in protest of his statement that “all lives matter.”

LETTERS: State should have say-so on same-sex marriage

The state constitution is the most fundamental protection of self-governance.

LETTERS: Hillary not only candidate with flaws

Hillary Clinton may not be perfect, but at least she’s not Donald Trump

LETTERS: Pete Rose’s gambling no big deal

The Hit King belongs in the Hall of Fame.

LETTERS: Facilities a concern at local park

I think not having two ways in and out of Georgie Pierce Park is a safety hazard. Emergency vehicles might not be able to get into the park to help someone. I don’t know if there is a way to access another exit with the layout of the land.

LETTERS: Elizabeth Warren is the presidential candidate we need

We need a new candidate for president and not recycled family candidates like Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton. We need someone who is genuinely concern for the American people. We need Elizabet Warren.

LETTERS: Wish more journalists were like Kathleen Parker

I must commend Kathleen Parker for her straightforward and non-partisan critique of why the U.S. Senate is dysfunctional, particularly in regard to the potential confirmation of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General of the United States.

LETTERS: Columnists hypocritical in criticism of Obama’s immigration plan

Speaker Boehner and the Republican leaders in the House have not even held a hearing on this bill, voted on this bill, or offered an alternative bill. Yet neither Mr. Huckaby nor Mr. King has criticized Speaker Boehner or the Republicans for this woeful inaction to address our broken immigration system.

LETTERS: Obama immigration amnesty is unworkable

There are still no real proposals that would stop future mass illegal immigration. Isn’t it a shame that our citizenship and legal residency are to be traded for votes and cheap labor?

LETTERS: When it comes to Ebola, voice of reason must prevail

I agree with Nate McCullough that the media frenzy over Ebola has us envisioning Ebola victims sauntering down the street like the “Walking Dead” ready to infect anyone in sight with a deadly bite.

THOMAS: Houston pastors fight censorship challenge

For a government official to try to intimidate or censor speech from the pulpit, or any other form of communication, is clearly unconstitutional and this effort by Houston’s mayor should not survive a single court challenge.

LETTERS: Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousufzai perfect example of a Muslim woman

Congratulations to Pakistani teen Malala Yousufzai

LETTERS: De facto tax increase not ‘prudent’ for citizens

Our county commission has chosen to ignore the hardship of the citizens of Gwinnett County and voted to retain the present property tax mileage rate. Due to an increase in property values the end result is a serious increase in property taxes.

LETTERS: Coach Lloyd was a ‘one-of-a-kind’ man

I am sorry to hear the news of Coach Bill Lloyd’s passing. I had the privilege of playing for Coach Lloyd at CollinsHill High School when the school first opened.

LETTERS: Paper misplays Michelle Nunn race

When reading the May 21 paper, I noticed that a lot of front page coverage was given to the Republicans running fo the Senate. I also noticed that there was one line given to the Democrats running for the Senate. I have looked through the paper and have not found another article about that Senate race.
