Bush is strong, compassionate
In The Augusta Chronicle on Oct. 10, there were 10 letters to the editor. Six of the 10 were pro-John Kerry. The authors of the letters wrote an interesting collection of their perceptions of President Bush's failures.

Susan Reaves, North Augusta, S.C.

Questions arise about Kerry, media
I am an independent-thinking person, trying to cut through all the pros and cons of each presidential candidate. To that extent, I have come across a news article from a respectable media source that is disturbing, to say the least. Lenora Brown, Evans

Dems will resort to anything
The liberal spin on so-called Republican propaganda is laughable. They complain about President Bush wrongly going to war, but they want the freedom to express their opinions, which people in terrorist-run countries cannot do. The liberal approach to terrorism can be epitomized by the approach President Clinton took toward the first World Trade Center bombing. Bill Giddings, Evans

Don't send our city on foolish spending spree
We all like to go on spending sprees occasionally. I had a great time on one recently that involved flying to Utah to purchase a worn-out World War II aircraft, then renting a truck to haul it to Delaware so the fuselage could be rebuilt by one of the nation's top restorers. It's not much to look at right now, but my wife loves to talk about it.

Top-notch school system continually improves
As principal of Lakeside High School, I feel compelled to respond to Merle Temple's charge to "light some fires" in the Columbia County school system. His Oct. 10 column was nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to drum up support for new school board candidates. It is only fair for someone who is very familiar with the school system to respond to his rhetoric. Because of the fact that I am a graduate of Evans High School; a 15-year employee of this school system; married to a fourth-grade teacher at Riverside Elementary School, who is also a product of Evans High; and the father of two elementary-aged boys who attend Riverside Elementary, I feel very qualified to respond to Mr. Temple's need for lighting a fire.

Kerry ridicules President's terrorism remark
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - President Bush and Sen. John Kerry stayed on the offensive in swing states Sunday as the presidential race entered its final full week. In a television interview, Bush said it is "up in the air" whether the nation can ever be fully safe from another terror attack and suggested terrorists may still be contemplating ways to disrupt the election.

Kerry's policies could be limited
WASHINGTON - If Sen. John Kerry is elected, his presidency is likely to bring a sharp shift in White House direction - along with pragmatic backpedaling on some of his boldest campaign promises.

Volatile issues a boost to ballots
The heated Bush-Kerry race might seem reason enough for voters to turn out Nov. 2, but in many states extra incentive is provided by divisive ballot measures on topics ranging from marijuana legalization and minimum wages to malpractice and same-sex marriage.

2nd term could be similar to first
WASHINGTON - On the campaign trail, belting out promises for the next four years, President Bush exudes confidence and optimism. Yet the reality of a second term is that Mr. Bush would be boxed in by many of the momentous decisions he made in the first.

Bush, Kerry still court voters
PUEBLO, Colo. - Democrat John Kerry sought to undercut President Bush on national security Saturday by charging that he was trying to scare voters with talk of terrorism. Mr. Bush portrayed his opponent as indecisive and suffering from "election amnesia" with conflicting stands on Iraq.

Kerry talks of faith, values
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Democrat John Kerry on Sunday tried to persuade late-deciding voters that they can put their faith in his leadership by describing the values and beliefs that he says have guided him and would shape his presidency.

Gore urges black voters to turn anger into energy
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Former Vice President Al Gore on Sunday told blacks embittered by his narrow loss in the 2000 presidential election that "it doesn't have to be this way" and urged them to turn anger into energy at the polls.

Edwards assures congregation that votes will be counted
CINCINNATI - Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards assured mostly black churchgoers Sunday that a record turnout would render meaningless a federal court decision that limits where some votes can be cast.

Bucs turn on offense against Bears
TAMPA, Fla. - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers found a tonic for their sputtering offense in the Chicago Bears' porous run defense.

Lions get another road win
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - After going three years without winning on the road, the Detroit Lions are unbeatable away from the Motor City.

Monday night matchup: Chad vs. Champ
CINCINNATI - Chad Johnson leaned toward the tape recorders, ready to make another prediction.

Jaguars edge Colts
INDIANAPOLIS - The Jacksonville Jaguars found another team to burn in the fourth quarter.

Eagles win in overtime
CLEVELAND - The only sign that Terrell Owens didn't have an issue with was the scoreboard.

Culpepper leads Vikings to win
MINNEAPOLIS - With Randy Moss relegated to two snaps of decoy duty, Daunte Culpepper and the Minnesota Vikings shifted gears and grinded one out against the Tennessee Titans.

Ravens get win over Bills
BALTIMORE - High-stepping Deion Sanders made sure the Baltimore Ravens wouldn't lament the absence of Jamal Lewis.

Patriots win again
FOXBORO, Mass. - The New England Patriots needed a big play to keep their record winning streak alive. They got it from a familiar place: the defense.

Chargers hand Panthers fourth loss
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Keenan McCardell took his time getting dressed, carefully buttoning his bright fuchsia shirt and securing his striped tie.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If Jim Mora is upset about being kicked out of his bedroom to let Dick Vermeil get a good night's sleep, then maybe this is a revenge game.

Rice should learn from the past
Say what you will about Al Davis, he has a sense of history and a soft spot for history makers.
