Letters to the Editor


Lilburn greenway nice, but not at expense of grant money

I am all for the Camp Creek Greenway, if and only if though, the people of Gwinnett County and Lilburn specifically are willing to pay for it our of their own pockets and not get grant money from the Georgia Department of Transportation.

LETTERS: Highlighting the loving nature of Lent

It was so refreshing to read about Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent on the front page of Thursday’s Gwinnett Daily Post. As Christians, our hope is in eternal life in heaven through the death and resurrection of Jesus, God’s only Son.

LETTERS: Horse feathers to Obama being good at taking blame

In response to the letter from Mike Bence praising President Obama for his ability to stand up to the plate and take responsibility for his actions like Governor Christie did, I say: horse feathers.

LETTERS: Traffic needs to be considered before mix-used project complete

What plans are in the works to provide for the hundreds more vehicles that will be added to the already busy access to the Mall of Georgia and to destinations past the mall?

LETTERS: Letter off the mark on criticism of Obama

I am writing in response to Gene Wade’s letter to the editor in which he starts out defending Governor Chris Christie, and then proceeds directly to Obama bashing. He touts the “ethical” attributes of Christie, who threw his top aids under the buss, then took responsibility for the bridge closing, as if he knew nothing of it at the time.

LETTERS: At least Christie takes responsibility

Gov. Christie has taken full responsibility for the misdeeds of his appointees and has fired them. President Obama, by comparison, constantly leads from behind, which means that others takes the blame,

LETTERS: Why can't they all get along in Snellville?

Now it seems that the city of Snellville leaders are in constant conflict among themselves. I hope that the mayor and city council will cease their petty rivalries and start doing the job they were elected to do for the citizens.

LETTERS: CFI, like DDI, good for traffic flow

I do not know whether or not the CFI proposed at Jimmy Carter Blvd./Buford Highway will make the cut on the 2013 SPLOST intersections improvement project list or not as there would be federal, state, county, and CID monies involved. However, the CFI, like a DDI, is a less expensive way to facilitate the safe flow of traffic through what was once a dangerous intersection and as such, is worth informing the public about.

LETTERS: Thoughts heading into a new year

Finally, please vote. Much of our future depends on who is runninng our government.

LETTERS: U.S. is not mediocre

It is rare that your Perspective Page can raise my interest enough to comment on two items on the same day but your Dec. 6 page accomplished this.

LETTERS: Consumers hold the key to commercialization of holidays

If no one shops on Thanksgiving, no store would open. If no one reacts to Christmas commercials at Halloween, they will stop. All this complaining is another example of abdicating our personal responsibility. We, the consumers, drive how much or how little our holidays are commercialized.

LETTERS: Commercialism ruining the holidays

Ms. Parker has reminded us that we are becoming a society that is obssesed with owning things rather than cherishing the more important things in life such as love of our families, kindness for the less fortunate, companionship with our friends, gratitude for good health, and living in our free country.

LETTERS: Wrong moves being made in deal with Iran

The current sanctions against Iran were very difficult to implement to begin with thanks to foot-dragging by Russia, China and others and to think the sanctions can be re-implemented after six months, is a fool’s errand. Obama and Kerry haven’t a clue and they have ensured that Iran will soon have nukes.

LETTERS: Tom Martin deserving of kudos

I have witnessed Tom multiply that kind of service to others for the last 38 years. Gwinnett is a better community because of Tom Martin.

LETTERS: Obamacare problems continue to mount

Anything that I pay for, and does not work, costs plenty. I am about “paid out.” Now I am to be penalized because my personal health insurance will either be cancelled or cost prohibitive?
