Urges conservation to meet oil crisis

Blasts anti-gun administration
After the death of a child by accidental or deliberate action, President Bill Clinton uses the opportunity to further his goals and those of his supporters, mostly left-wing socialist Democrats, to disarm American citizens. In fact, the United Nations cited the ownership of small arms by citizens tobe one of the leading causes of ``governmental instability'' throughout the world. Of course, government corruption, abuse of power and human rights violations, waste and fraud on an unprecedented scale don't matter. Guns are the problem, according to the U.N. and Clinton.Floyd Brown, Evans

Kent: Ga. legislature notes; a parking question
GEORGIA'S GENERAL Assembly session concluded Wednesday. Some observations on three key issues:

Shorten S.C. session
The South Carolina House stayed in session an extra day recently to squabble over spending priorities for the next fiscal year. There'd be nothing wrong with this...except there are two things wrong.

Charges Augusta poisoning farmland
Augusta's industry is poisoning Jefferson County's farmland. Almost 8 million gallons of waste treated daily at Augusta's waste water plant comes from industry. Thomas Black, Louisville

Calls headline wrong, insulting
The Chronicle's March 20 headline (Woman grabs chief role) regarding the March 23 swearing in of Jean Hoefer Toal as South Carolina's first female chief justice, is not only insulting, but also inaccurate. Justice Toal was, after all, elected, first to the state Supreme Court and then to head the court. Leslie C. Lambert, Augusta

Describes parties
The Republicans could not stand giving the working poor a minimum wage increase without tacking on another tax cut for the rich. Truly the Republicans are the party for the greedy and the Democrats the party for the needy. Willie B. McKelton, Keysville

Meet the challenge and fly
It's the old chicken-and-egg dilemma: Augusta needs better air service to stimulate the economy, but that won't happen until the demand exists. The demand won't exist, however, until air service is improved and made more affordable.

Extra nominees
Although the 2000 Academy Awards are now history, The Chronicle has some extra award nominations that we feel were overlooked.

Blasts anti-gun administration
After the death of a child by accidental or deliberate action, President Bill Clinton uses the opportunity to further his goals and those of his supporters, mostly left-wing socialist Democrats, to disarm American citizens. In fact, the United Nations cited the ownership of small arms by citizens tobe one of the leading causes of ``governmental instability'' throughout the world. Of course, government corruption, abuse of power and human rights violations, waste and fraud on an unprecedented scale don't matter. Guns are the problem, according to the U.N. and Clinton. Floyd Brown, Evans

Feels sadness over fear of religion
As I read Ellen Goodman's March 16 column, I felt great sadness. If I understand her correctly, she believes our schools shouldteach only evolution as the scientific ``truth'' of the beginning of the universe and man. Melanie Kurdys, Augusta

Flower power
Let there be azaleas. Augustans can thank Rep. Jack Connell, D-Augusta, for taking heat over a budget item that will help replace some of the city's flowering shrubs lost last year during the drought. A $25,000 state grant to Augusta will get some of those plants replaced. Far more than $25,000 worth of azaleas were lost during the dry summer.

Offers new editor some suggestions
I welcome to the Central Savannah River Area new Editorial Page Editor Suzanne Downing. I wish Phil Kent the best, but he was too far to the right for my taste. If he or talk show host Austin Rhodes offer Ms. Downing any advice analyze it carefully; it may have a Pat Buchanan-Rush Limbaugh slant to it. Hoyt Goodson, Waynesboro

SkyFest fun
Look! Up in the sky. It's ... SkyFest 2000. For the first time ever and the only time this year, the famed U.S. Navy Blue Angels will wing in to Augusta Regional Airport at Bush Field for what promises to be a memorable April 1-2 event.

Slams inaccuracies on quiz shows
This is in response to Eva-Marie Proudfits' March 15 letter to the editor. Bob Shealy, Martinez

Kent: Ga. legislature notes; a parking question
GEORGIA'S GENERAL Assembly session concluded Wednesday. Some observations on three key issues:

'Class warfare'
The Georgia General Assembly's decision last week to restore automobile emissions tests to every two years will save many drivers some money, but state Environmental Protection Division officials fear it could derail their plan to free up millions of federal road-building dollars for the Atlanta area.

Backs `Lakeside untucked' class shirts
Re the March 12 Chronicle letter written by James Walden: I think it was utterly ridiculous -- obviously written by a person who has little or no connection to the public school system. Jessica Garner, Augusta

Urges teaching kids dangers of guns
After reading the March 20 letter by G. Edwards on gun ownership, I needed to respond. Gun ownership is and always will be a right we cannot afford to give up. Guns in the hands of responsible citizens have prevented hundreds of crimes. You won't read much about the crimes prevented because it isn't politically correct, but for every crime committed with a gun many, many more have been prevented. John Bryan, Wrens

Urges conservation to meet oil crisis
Nearly everyone is aware the price of gasoline has risen dramatically and further increases are expected. I have listened to the opinions of government leaders, economists, ``experts in the field'' and disgruntled citizens. Opinions on how to deal with this crisis have included lowering the gas tax, reducing or canceling aid to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, government subsidies to reopen old domestic oil fields, putting some of our national oil reserves on the market and freezing the price of gasoline. J.E. Clark, Augusta

Urges McCain to get behind Bush
I am a veteran of World War II and I don't claim to be a hero. Harry Oliphant, Hephzibah

Chastises school dress code critic
It's apparent in Lisa Suppa's March 15 letter that she has missed the point of Columbia County schools' dress code. Michele D. Gaston, Martinez

Offers solution to truckers' problems
The truckers in the Augusta area need to find a place to park their rigs other than in subdivisions. I suggest they work to solve their own parking problems, security and transportation to and from ``the motor pool'' without looking for the county commissioners or taxpayers to solve their problems. Don't expect us to fund your private ventures by supplying real estate to park your vehicles or allow parking in residential neighborhoods. Raymond K. Dick, Hephzibah

Lauds cartoon, criticizes census
The March 15 Rick McKee editorial cartoon on the intrusive census couldn't be more accurate. I'd not really read or heard much about the actual forms, but like most people I know, intended to return it promptly. Estella Hernandez, Martinez

Believes fuel prices will go down
How many business people do not realize that any commodity is priced by and supply and demand? The smaller the supply the bigger the price. The supply grows and the price goes down. Ann Haslinger, Aiken

Presses for zoning enforcement
This truck tractor parking situation has really captured my attention. Let me explain briefly: Here on our street, we have three ongoing operations that do not belong in a residential area. Two of these, friends of mine, have tried to get this corrected through the years, but to no avail. The third I have actively been trying to get corrected for about a year and a half. I get polite responses and agreeable comments, but no action. Individuals near the top of city and county government are aware of some of this. None of these three operations, however, are nearly as severe as having a semi-tractor parked in the neighborhood. A. B. Chipman, Augusta
