Truck overturns on Old Savannah Road
Area crews spent Monday morning cleaning up a non-toxic spill after a tanker truck overturned in front of the Procter-Gamble plant in the 3400 block of Old Savannah Road.

Urges prescription-writing psychologists
A proposal in the Georgia Legislature would give prescription-writing authority to specially-trained, licensed psychologists. The major reason psychologists are seeking additional training and authority to prescribe is to provide quality care for their patients. This will avoid the usual necessity of having the patient see two professionals if they are on medication. Treatment would be more integrated and wholistic. Prescription privileges for psychologists would result in significant cost savings and stop the inconvenient and, at times, painful necessity of telling one's story again. Jeffrey M. Brandsma, Ph.D., Augusta

Cites 'hatred' against whites, South
The biggest enemy the African-American has is his hate for the white male. He is letting that control him. The Confederate flag is only a piece of cloth.

Chlody D. Meadows, Beech Island

Disagrees on origin of rectangular flag
In response to Joseph Meyer's Dec. 17 letter: Mr. Meyers is correct that the Confederate battle flag was perfectly square.

Wants America to turn back to God
There is a major problem in our society today. Most of it is the result of the examples from top ranking officials and leaders.

They are the ones who have little to no self-respect, no morals, no backbone, no principles, no concern for families, fairness or justice. Their only concerns are for themselves, and how much money they can get their hands on any way they can. Glen Reynolds, Grovetown

Remembers model for Charlie Brown
All my life I have read the Peanuts comic strip. It's a wonderful story about a kid who constantly fails, but is still loved by everyone. He never does anything right, his kite never flies, he is never able to kick a football, and his own dog doesn't even behave for him. What is it about this seemingly depressing story that gives the character his appeal? Why is he so loved? What about him makes him so special? Lee Catherine Booker, Augusta

Urges protection of Savannah River
I am writing this letter out of concern for two cities that I love. Almost everything in the way of progress for many years has been centered around the Savannah River and I am concerned for the beauty and many attractions of the river and canals in Augusta and North Augusta.
