Sound Off - Sunday, April 21

Go lacrosse: The goalies on the NHS Lacrosse team did an outstanding job at the game against EC. Juniors Lindsay Stewart and Morgan Garner did excellent jobs with split time in the goal during the first half. Freshman Hope Overton did an awesome job protecting the goal for the entire second half. Great job, ladies!

.............

Gun bill defeat: The defeat for the gun bill is an example of the minority thwarting the will of the majority. Although it may take some time, the majority always wins. It’s called democracy.

.............

No comparison: Pedophiles mentally and on occasion physically target prepubescents that are impressionable and vulnerable. Homosexuality is not a predatory act. Comparing one to the other is a reflection of one’s fear of human sexuality.

.............

Argh! The new format - I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. I wasted all kinds of time trying to find an area to submit a vent. (Editor’s note: we are in the process of fixing that now.)

.............

Let’s ban pressure cookers: I know something needs to be done about all of these bombings and shootings. I suppose our president will wind up banning all pressure cookers, nails, and ball bearings. I’m no genius about these things, but maybe if they don’t let these weird minds walk around we would solve it.

.............

Tear it down: The county and city officials know the name of the owner of the Newnan House Motel and also the other two closed, dilapidated structures. I have mentioned the corporation name and articles are not printed. Question is, why? This owner is allowed to keep these structures. Why?

.............

It’s history: The old “Dilapidated” barn on Herring Road is a part of Coweta County history. To me it is not an eyesore. It is a reminder of the past, when Coweta County was a wonderful place to live. It would be great if someone had the resources and time to rebuild it to the once beautiful building. If it bothers you, please take another route so that you don’t have to see it.
