Letters From Our Readers
If polls rule, who needs a Constitution?
- Two weeks ago, I told you I didn't think the Lewinsky scandal would be enough to
get President Clinton removed from office.
Once, Fayette Republicans were hard to find
Our Fayette Heritage
- No provision was made in the U.S. Constitution for
political parties, and almost all of the early leaders of the republic hoped
to govern without them.
The difficulties of not writing about a certain topic
- This will be very difficult but I am not going to write about the
Clinton-Lewinsky debacle in this article. Even though everyone is talking,
writing, singing and dreaming about the whole situation the last few days, I am going
to practice abstinence.
The new judge says thanks; will be visiting area classrooms
- I thank God, and 10,309 voters in Fayette, Spalding, Pike and
Upson counties for the sacred trust that I am best able to provide for
the safety and security of the law-abiding citizens of our circuit, and
to fairly administer justice in civil matters.
Why no raises for loyal F'ville employees?
- No departments in the city of Fayetteville, as far as I know, have been getting a "cost
of living" raise in many years, until just
last month. Thanks to the new city manager, that should have, however, been done long ago.
Late schoolbuses should get tardy slip
- For years the bus scheduling has been at least predictable. On the first day of school
I had to drive them both.
Thanks for Peeples
- To Sandra Watson, principal of Peeples Elementary, her staff and the PTO, thank
you very much for all the hard work that went into making our temporary home so
comfortable and homey.
Biker looks at life, seeks help in making Fayette riding safer
- Biking for life... let's ponder that thought, what does biking
for life mean? Does it mean biking to improve the quality of
life? Does it mean biking until the end of your life, or does it mean
the next time you ride a bike might be your last?
Home schooler: I pay taxes, let me have access
- After doing some more research, I have decided
that Fayette County is the wrong venue to change an unfair
state educational rule. I will vigorously fight current policy
that prohibits home schoolers from participating with local
schools in competitive activities, but will do it at the state level.
Candidates say thanks to voters for support
- From Linda Wells . . .
Candidates say thanks to voters for support

Textbook case: Good student falls behind with Chicago Math
- This year in my children's schools, once again, I
am voicing my disgust over the use of the University of
Chicago School Math Project textbooks.
Thanks for math controversy coverage
- I am one of the concerned parents for the math curriculum. I just
want to tell you how much I appreciate the support you have shown in
your paper towards our cause.
