LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Gun control advocates have limited point of view
A weapon is a tool that can equalize a threat you have no physical means of neutralizing. It was once called one’s personal responsibility to protect one’s family. Now, it seems meddling in other people’s business is your right and you should fear no consequences.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Criminals will not obey the law
All of the companies, schools, businesses and institutions that have banned guns are advertising to the degenerate minds of individuals who have a wanton disregard for the law that this is the place to go to get their name in the paper and on TV.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Politicians take positions that are the most expedient
Now I know that there are good and bad apples in both parties, but when it gets to the national level, it appears to me that the Democrats have the most elected officials with the most blatant lies.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Shutting God out is the cause of problems in the United States
I have no allegiance to the Confederate flag; my allegiance is the flag of the United States of America and one nation under God!
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: There are better uses for the Albany Deal-Closing Fund
The Albany Deal-Closing Fund money should be spent on projects that have a benefit, not on speculation about what downtown property might be worth sometime in the future.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Christian values are God's standard, not man's
I find it so odd that when Christians hold beliefs that are based on God’s Word and have stood the test of time for over a thousand years, we are ridiculed and belittled.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Law-abiding citizens targeted by gun-control advocates
Criminal activity by a serial sniper in Colorado does not make all gun owners bad people.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Spread the wealth while you are still alive
I remain intrigued by the rich, well-to-do individuals advocating for the government providing for its citizens they perceive to be disadvantaged.
Finding people who say Albany has problems isn’t difficult. The difficulty is mapping out a strategy and pulling together to achieve solutions.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Mistakes of the past should not hold back progress for the future
Albany is a city with untold and as yet, undiscovered potential. It is time to stop focusing on past misdeeds and begin to look toward a brighter future for this downtown.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Albany can be a place we're proud to call home
I say now let’s set ourselves up for success. Let’s build on what we have learned and move forward. I’m asking for all of us to please leave the negative attitude and words behind!
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Non-emergency call center responsive to inquiries
I would like to give a shout-out to the people who work for non-emergency calling. Yes, the 311 number has been really helpful for some of the questions I have asked.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Meeting on future is set for June 2 downtown
Downtown Albany can be improved while making the most of what’s already there and also saving major taxpayer expense.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Columnist relies on debunked myths in denying climate change
Climate denial pseudoscience comes from Fox News, a number of right-wing “think tanks” and websites clandestinely funded by the fossil fuel industry.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: City commissioners complaint of assignment is shocking
Last Tuesday, a city commissioner complained about the assignment of female officers to lead the Albany Police Department Gang Task Force. I can assure you that his comments are his own only and do not reflect the rest of the City Commission.
