Lower my values

Since moving to Gainesville 30 years ago next month, I have not missed a single election: national, state or local. I will miss the mayoral runoff; I will not lower my values to the point of voting for a DUI offender.

It's sad that Gainesville's leadership options have come to this.

Laurel Davis,


Unfunded liabilities

As a property owner in the proposed Gainesville annexation area, the scariest parts of being annexed are a lack of transparency and Gainesville's unfunded liabilities/debts: future pensions, health care and Gainesville Regional Utilities debts.

Phil Denton,


Scales of justice

Last week's sonic boom might have been caused by the tsunami of money that helped former GOP bigwig Jim Greer decide to plea bargain. It could also be the sound of the scales of justice clanging to the sidewalk outside our Statehouse in Tallahassee.

Clayton Smith,


Biological fact

In his March 30 letter to the editor, Jack Martin compares legalizing gay marriage to legalizing prostitution and condoning adultery. Sir, prostitution and adultery are choices, being gay is a biological fact.

Nancy Weed Taylor,

Lake City

Must be so proud

I was thoroughly amused by the Non Sequitur strip in The Sun comics on March 31.

A South Carolina Republican state representative was quoted as saying “It is good politics to oppose the black guy in the White House right now, especially for the Republican Party.”

I guess the mystery of destructive political obstructionism isn't so puzzling. Former Republican President Abraham Lincoln must be so proud.

Asa Godbey,
