Memorable U.N. quote
``It would be hard to miss the onslaught of commercials that allege the U.S. owes the United Nations anything over $1 billion in back dues. `Great nations pay their bills,' they say. This propaganda suggests that the U.S. owes anything to the U.N. is without merit and a lie. Aside from being assessed almost one-third of the total U.N. cost, the U.S. has paid billions of dollars in support of U.N. efforts in Kosovo. And it has the audacity to claim that we owe them?

Kent: A new commissioner; buzz over Walker
Augusta-Richmond County gets a second new city commissioner in January: the Rev. Marion Williams. He upended District 2 incumbent Freddie Handy in a Nov. 23 runoff that saw more votes cast than in the initial Nov. 2 four-way race. That's unusual in itself.

What's he hiding?
Serious reverberations are resulting over Georgia Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor's stunning humiliation in his lawsuit against the political opponent he defeated a year ago, Republican Mitch Skandalakis.

Online tax payments
Cities, counties and states collect taxes from a ``captive audience'' with property owners either submitting payment through the mail or traveling to plunk down money or a check at a government office building. But like many other things in our society, the Internet is changing the way the nation does business.

Suggests priorities for 2000 election
The 2000 election campaign is now in full swing with the rhetoric pumping up about priority issues. One such priority seems to be in ``improving education.'' Al Kotras, Augusta

Says '90s was bad for our way of life
As I look back over the decade of the 1990s, I see that the people of our country elected a draft dodger as president and commander in chief of our armed forces. Lionel N. DuBois, Thomson

Defends use of the death penalty
Mary Catherine Zipter's Nov. 11 letter urges us to follow a man, Pope John Paul II, on his crusade to end the death penalty as punishment for murder. But if we consult the Bible, which her letter ignores, we find her arguments seriously flawed. Frank Hutto, Augusta

Cites `grand denial' of abortion defense

Two e-mail hoaxes
The U.S. Mail has sent across the country and the world hoaxes that are real doozies. Electronic mail is proving no exception.

Urges removal of Bush Field director
The extra people attending the Bush Field Aviation Commission meeting were general aviation pilots and tax-paying residents of Augusta-Richmond County. Thesecitizens are users of Augusta's entire airport system, interested in airline aviation, general aviation, and both airports. Most, even the airplane owners, are also Delta Frequent Flyers. Chester Banaszewski, Augusta

U.N. control of our treasures
When most Americans think of the United Nations, it is usually when U.S. troops are sent with other U.N. soldiers to some corner of the world on a peace-keeping mission. Yet the world body has been assuming obscure but vast power in recent years, and a supine U.S. government is allowing it.

Memorable U.N. quote
``It would be hard to miss the onslaught of commercials that allege the U.S. owes the United Nations anything over $1 billion in back dues. `Great nations pay their bills,' they say. This propaganda suggests that the U.S. owes anything to the U.N. is without merit and a lie.

Questions Evans principal's judgment
The Columbia County Board of Education needs to look up the definition for ``zero tolerance'' because it obviously does not know what it means. Dale Richardson, Grovetown

Supply side vindicated
Liberal purists still deride the school of ``supply side economics'' popularized by former President Ronald Reagan. The philosophy that tax cuts can stimulate business expansion led to 10 years of solid economic growth and hundreds of thousands of new jobs after 1982.

Advises against succumbing to holiday rush
Augusta's roads were packed on a recent Friday afternoon with shoppers on their way to the mall for the arrival of Santa and pre-holiday shopping specials. This caught me quite by surprise. I didn't have a list! I didn't even know what I wanted for anyone, but I knew that if I didn't hurry up and buy something fast all of the good stuff would surely be gone! Brenda Vest, Aiken

Opposes stockade for animal shelter
Based on his guest column supporting the Humane Society using the Lake Olmstead stockade, it is pretty obvious that former StateSen. Frank Albert has it in for the Augusta Canal (the weed-choked ditch). I'll only respond to a few of his points: Thomas R. Swift, M.D., Augusta

Defends flag's display above Statehouse
Opponents and some newcomers to South Carolina feel that the sacred Confederate flag that flies above our great state's capitol is a symbol that represents racism and slavery. Is it not true that racism existed before the flag? Although I wish it wouldn't, racism will probably still exist even if the flag is removed. Jody Johnson, Jackson

Questions defender of abortion
In response to Mary Beth Pierucci's Nov. 19 comments, I would like to ask her several questions: Jill Dooley, Augusta

Applauds opening of new plant
I just had to write and say how excited and pleased I was when I read about the carpet recycling plant opening here in Augusta (news story, Nov 14). Arlene Candy, Martinez

Doubts boycott will harm S.C.
Why is Gov. Jim Hodges worried about the potential economic condition of South Carolina brought on by the NAACP economic boycott? Let the National Association for theAdvancement of Colored People boycott the state. Who cares? There is no way that this measly loss of convention money and other monies could possibly make any significant different in the tourism in the state in places like Myrtle Beach or Charleston. Tony R. Bledsoe, North Augusta

Suggests special prosecutor needed
Phil Kent (column, Nov. 21) says that Augusta Mayor Bob Young ``takes a political risk'' by possibly alienating a few commissioners. How much of a risk? Does anyone knowledgeable of Augusta's politics really expect District Attorney Danny Craig to lead a special grand jury in any way that would result in an indictment of anyone for anything? Robert A. Daniels, Augusta

Asks 'heavenly' protection for players
I just read an article in the paper about prayer being said before a sports event in school. I attended a game that my grandson played in at a private school and a prayer was lifted up for the players to have protection and for fairness in the game between the two sides. Judith Rushing, Augusta

NEW YORK -- Major drug companies are boosting their year-end stockpiles in case of hoarding by people afraid Y2K trouble will cut off their supply of life-sustaining medication.

Cellular 911 calls misguided
They are the three simple digits essential in any emergency -- 911. But, depending on whether you dial them from a home phone or a cellular counterpart, the service designed to get help quickly may not always connect you with the person you need.
