Matthew Pearce is swimming in the Kool-Aid. Reducing the budget, power, meddling and overreach of the EPA is one of the many reasons 42,513 voters in Coweta voted for Trump. I suspect many of those voters, like me, would like to see the EPA gestapo eliminated. By the way, Matthew, the climate-change hoax is not settled science, just a settled con job.

I am constantly amazed at how many drivers still are apparently unaware that you should always turn on your headlights when it’s raining, foggy, dawn or dusk. It’s not so you can see better; it’s so other drivers can see you.

I have no more use for unwarranted praise than for unwarranted insult. Neither is evidence of goodwill.

To the person who believes that "they are owed a lot.” What about the black slave owners? What about the Africans who sold their own people into slavery? And, there were Irish slaves as well. Are they "owed a lot" too? There is not one person alive on the face of the earth today who was responsible for slavery.

I may be a "snowflake," but your paper should not be printing Sound Offs that call names. You may print my name, Karen Allen.

If local cyclists continue to ignore the "Share The Road" road signs, they should not complain about motorists who are not courteous to them. Single-file bicycle groups would allow traffic to pass them and not back up.

The parents that wait in line two hours before school is released need to get a life. You block all lanes to the school, which is a safety hazard for any type of emergency; you ignore school policy; and you don't allow a parent checking a child out early for a doctor's appointment to pass. Buses are provided for all students, and lines should not start until school is released.
