The column by Gwinnett County Police Chief Brett West (“Gwinnett police committed to serving with integrity and courtesy,” April 25, A7) was an affirmation of the Gwinnett County Police Department.
If Rob Jenkins’ recent column (“How to destroy our schools in 8 easy steps,” March 28, 5B) was meant as a counterbalance to the thoughtfully written, newsworthy perspectives by James “Jim’ Taylor and Lavoska Barton in “‘It’s time for change’ for the leadership of Gwinnett County Public Schoo…
As the creator of the petition in support of Gwinnett County Public Schools Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks, I can attest the petition originally was only shared on Facebook to a page supporting in-person learning for students. This page has ZERO political party affiliation.

It seems that the increase in traffic in Lilburn and surrounding areas has been accompanied by a large percentage of dangerous speeders and risk takers as well as numerous disruptions caused by extremely loud mufflers. These infractions occur most of each day on both major thoroughfares as w…
In his column (“How the Left’s COVID response is literally fascist, Dec. 6, C4) Rob Jenkins unfortunately adds to the thin chorus of voices who seem to want to politicize the wearing of face masks and the practicing of social distancing that would help control the world’s virulent outbreak o…
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of Gwinnett County Recorder’s Court Judge Ramon Alvarado on his very untimely passing on July 20.
Our family, like many others, has struggled these last few months of online school. Having two boys with special needs has created an even larger gap in our academic progress despite putting in many hours of teaching and practicing.
Both your columnists Rob Jenkins and Darrell Huckaby are or have been teachers. We don’t envy their students; we can only hope that they – and your readers – have reached the fortunate stage of being able to distinguish bad instruction from good.
Rob Jenkins writes about the Mall of Georgia that we should use it or lose it ("The Mall of Georgia: Use it or lose it," C15, Feb. 23). Well, malls have been failing all over the U.S. for years, even before they built the Mall of Georgia.
The State Bar of Georgia extends condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of Gwinnett County Senior Magistrate Judge Emily P. Powell of Buford, whose tragic passing Dec. 31 has left us all saddened.
In response to John C. Bambach’s letter to the editor (“More countervailing views needed for opinion page,” Dec. 6, A5), I find his comments one sided in the extreme.

The event was an opportunity to share our perspective about the 287(g) program, listen to the concerns of our community and dispel any misinformation residents of our community may have about this important program.
Duluth Councilman Kirkland Carden recently condemned Sheriff Butch Conway for including D.A. King, president of the Dustin Society, as a panelist in a recent meeting regarding the Gwinnett County jail’s 287(g) program (“Duluth councilman calls for condemnation of sheriff,” Aug. 4, A1.)
We proudly support the 287(g) program, Sheriff Conway and the brave ICE Agents who risk their lives to fight the crime of illegal immigration.
I am originally from Pennsylvania, but I frequently visit Georgia and spend a lot of time in Gwinnett County. As a father of two young daughters, I am especially impressed with the quality of the county's parks and play facilities.

Reminder for the People of Gwinnett County: Time is running out for us to vote on the MARTA transportation plans. On Tuesday, March 19, you can vote at your regular polling places.
