Incumbent lawmaker's help lauded
This is regarding concerns raised about Rep. Robin Williams, R-Augusta, by his opponent - specifically, that he has forgotten the people of Augusta who have elected him, or that he is controlled solely by lobbyists and big money in Atlanta. Amy Fickle, Augusta

'In God We Trust'
It's surprising that someone didn't think sooner to challenge the ``keep God out of school crowd'' the way Colorado has. That state's Board of Education voted 5-1 to urge local school districts to prominently post the words, ``In God We Trust,'' in school buildings.

Baptist pastor's divorce disturbing
Regarding the divorce of the Rev. Charles Stanley, senior pastor of Atlanta's First Baptist Church. A newspaper article stated Rev. Stanley stunned his congregation by telling them he and his wife, Anna, were divorced. Kevin A.Palmer, Martinez

Williams supports home-schoolers
Georgia House District 114 voters need to re-elect Rep. Robin Williams, R-Augusta, on July 18. For 10 years we have been represented by a person dedicated to the growth and improvement of our district. Gina Pirolli, Augusta

House GOP leader endorses rep
I am writing, as the Georgia House Republican leader, to offer my support to Rep. Robin Williams' campaign for re-election to House District 114. State Rep. Robert Irvin, Atlanta

The good tax
''I have not heard the first person that is against it, because if there is a good tax this is a good tax. It is a way of achieving projects that we could not pay for any other way...''

God created evolution, diversity
In a June 26 letter, Paul Jackson stated that evolution is ``scientifically impossible,'' and also ``inherently racist.'' Richard Baxter, Aiken

Counters homosexuality advocate
This is in reference to Megan Hathaway's June 18 letter, ``Homosexuality is not about rape.'' To quote her: ``Homosexuality is about the choice to love another person. It has nothing to do with an attempt to hurt another human being or act against the will of God.''Sara Raley, Gibson

Lincoln's living legend
Some coaches are good. Some are great. Then there are the legends - like Lincoln County football coach Larry Campbell.

Is court seal the Bill of Rights?
Has anyone considered that the tablets on the Richmond County Court seal with the 10 Roman numerals just might signify the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution, i.e., the Bill of Rights. Dennis Ellis, Augusta

Did the Druids invent Halloween?
Re Michael Ledo's June 27 Chronicle letter in which he refers to a ``talking ass'' being mentioned in the Bible: I do not find that strange at all; they are still around today. Walter Huckeba, Keysville

Brush's priority: Value for taxpayers
On July 18 we have the opportunity to vote again for one of the most effective and experienced lawmakers in the Georgia Senate. I am speaking of Sen. Joey Brush, R-Appling, who served two terms in the state House of Representatives before being elected to the Senate in 1996. R. Johnson, Martinez

Dist. 114 candidate 'hypocritical, petty'
In an article in a weekly paper Georgia House District 114 candidate Sue Burmeister made the statement that she did not run against state Sen. Don Cheeks, D-Augusta, because she liked him ``and worked well with him.'' But her No. 1 complaint about her opponent, state Rep. Robin Williams, R-Augusta, is that he works well with Democrats. Edna Hill, Augusta

Baseball fans need to get a life
I'm surprised The Chronicle seems so hard up for letters that it continues to print the complaints of disgruntled Braves' fans who are unhappy because Comcast doesn't have a secondary channel for ``America's team.'' R. Thomas Sumner, Augusta

Boost for girls' sports
Public high school sports programs for girls should get a big boost from a new Georgia law that goes into effect this month. The Equity in Sports Act is designed to put some extra energy into the 1972 Title IX federal law banning discrimination against female athletics in the nation's education institutions.

Incumbent works for Columbia County
Simply stated, Rep. Ben Harbin, R-Martinez, is a good man. Pete Brodie, Evans

Re the June 29 letter by Jean Sizemore: Shirley Gottschalk, Augusta

Finds Nazi lies, U.S. media similar

There was a medical magnet in 1980
In your July 1 editorial you suggested that Richmond County should consider founding a medical magnet school. In 1980, this was accomplished. Kitty Lamb, Augusta
