This letter is in reference to the city of Forest Park Police Chief, Dwayne Hobbs. Monday, Oct. 1, he was terminated by the mayor and city council after more than 40 years of service to the city.
During the week of April 21-28, the city of Jonesboro will join other cities across Georgia in celebrating Georgia Cities Week. This week has been set aside to recognize the many services city governments provide and their contribution to a better quality of life in Georgia.

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Clayton County State Court Judge Kathryn L. Powers of Jonesboro on her appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a Superior Court judge in the Clayton Judicial Circuit and to Clayton County Deputy Chief Assistant Solicitor General Shalonda Jones-Parker of Jonesboro, whom the governor selected to succeed Judge Powers on the State Court bench.
I have lived in Clayton County my entire 56 years and I have heard some “not so good” stories about Southern Regional, so I just wanted the public to know about my encounter. If I have go to the hospital again, I will not hesitate to use Southern Regional.
The J.L. Jordan family would like to give thanks to the Clayton County Police Department and Clayton Fire Department first responders who came to our house on Jan. 15. The men and women who responded were professional and well-trained.J
I ask the voters of Georgia to give the Republican Party the opportunity in 2016 that was given the Democrat Party in 2008: control of the Oval Office and Congress, the opportunity to solve America’s problems.
These men and women that give so much of themselves do not get the respect and credit they deserve, so I wanted to honor them with this letter of gratitude.
Effective Sept. 28, 2016, I have ceased shopping at Walmart and shall continue my boycott of Walmart until those two employees are fired, or for one year, until Sept. 28, 2017, whichever happens first.
We are in the midst of a crisis of conscience created by the duplicity and corruption of our elected officials.
As a teacher in Clayton County, I struggle to understand how people cannot see that a major factor with these habitually failing schools is poverty.
Yes, I am hopeful that being called “unfit” to be president is a “good luck charm” which will continue to work its magic and Donald Trump will be elected president.
Trump has been opposed to the agreement from Day One of his campaign. Hillary Clinton is a candidate-come-lately on opposing the agreement; as secretary of state she supported the agreement.
The incentives and recruitment efforts by Clayton County Public Schools have been successful in helping retain current educators and hire new ones.
Not casting a vote for Donald Trump this year tells the Republicans that, to get their base back, they’d better find somebody different.
Should America risk having Hillary Clinton and staff handle the office of the presidency in the manner they handled the office of secretary of state, “extremely careless?”
The question for you, the American voter, is who would best protect America and the American people from attacked by a terrorist soldier of any terrorist organization or by any American who would subscribe to a terrorist organization’s way of thinking and attack fellow Americans?
“I also ask that each of you remember that the human spirit is extraordinary, and its strength and perseverance can overcome anything.” —Clayton County Police Chief Michael Register
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to congratulate Clayton County Magistrate Court Associate Judge Tammi Long Hayward of Jonesboro on her appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a judge on the State Court of Clayton County.
As a former educator, I could only feel pride in the fact that the arts, and this art form in particular, was teaching students how to improve their memories, their writing and their confidence in their ability to learn anything they wanted or needed to learn.
I have not heard of one thought from any Clayton County or city government office to put together a plan to send water to Flint, Mich.
During his distinguished career, Albert Wallace served as district attorney for eight years during the 1960s and devoted the remainder of his career to the private practice of law.
All Georgia lawyers and judges are grateful for Bob Oliver’s lifetime of service and are inspired by his many contributions toward promoting the cause of justice and upholding the integrity of the legal profession in our state.
America should vote on the reality of today, not the dark shadow of yesterday. Neither should America vote for a red-hot America, the start of an effort to transform the USA into the USSA!
While I respect George Nelson’s (Woodstock, Ga.) views opposing Gov. Deal’s decision to include Vietnam era veterans in the Vietnam War Certificate Of Honor Program, I must take the opposing viewpoint.
Only the Vietnam Veteran meets the qualification requirements to wear the Vietnam Service Ribbon/Medal and be called a Vietnam Veteran. While the Era Veteran served honorably, he never earned or qualified for the Decoration and the right to be called a Vietnam Veteran, yet the Decoration is included as a focal point on the Certificate being presented to Era Veterans. What a slap in the face to Vietnam Veterans across the country.
Houston recently passed an ordinance through its city council that has sparked quite a bit of controversy amongst conservative evangelicals. The Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), a broad-sweeping, left-leaning law trumpeted by the city of Houston and its openly gay mayor, Annise Parker,…
