Ashley goes one dubious statement too far - Ed Brock

Somebody take me hostage, please.

Astros stadium no better than mini-golf course - Justin Boron

I should have written this column a long time ago. Others have commented on the topic. And I have always felt this way. But I've only said it in the paper now – Minute Maid Park is the most absurd baseball field in the world.

Halloween and going as-is - Michael Davis

The leaves are crunchy. The air is crisp. My toes are cold and when I wake up in the morning I don't want to crawl out from under the covers.

A baseball fan for life - Jeffery Whitfield

Think it feels like fall yet? Christmas wreaths are cropping up in department stores, cool weather is creeping ever closer to our doorsteps and college football is churning toward its final games.

Now we're cooking or at least eating - Bob Paslay

I love food. When I am not eating it, I am thinking about it or talking about it. My friend and colleague Ruth Ann and I engaged in a brief conversation the other day, sparked by a press release about a company that is now marketing instant mashed potatoes with flecks of red potato skins in them to make it appear that mom slaved over a stove for you.

Letters to the Editor

Library should find better solution than selling all its DVDs Is not the purpose of the library to serve the patrons within the county?

I was horrified to see the loss rates of DVDs and the so-called solution offered by the library leadership ("Library delays decision to sell off DVDs," Page 1A, Oct. 19).

As a faithful patron of the Gwinnett County library system, I feel there has to be a better solution than selling off the DVDs at what I am sure is a fraction of what they were acquired for.

How much money was lost by unprotected DVDs walking through the doors? How much was spent on this system that leaves materials unprotected? Other libraries I have visited have strips that protect their citizens' collections, and the materials are out in the open as well.

The leadership needs to revisit the policies and protection of our materials or we should revisit our leadership.

The Daylight Saving nightmare - Rob Felt

This column originally appeared in the Daily Herald and the News Daily on October 23, 2003. Desperate to muse about the oncoming sun-drain that will sicken us this weekend, I decided that to write anything new would just be ripping myself off. I've made only a few minor changes, including that date that all this madness will end on.
