Letter: Chamber survey critic responds

I enjoy expressing my opinion via letters to the editor and I appreciate this newspaper's willingness to consider them for publication. Recently, there have been several rebuttals or contrasting viewpoints expressed in the same medium. Some have asked if that bothers me. My response has been, if by "bother," you mean does it elicit emotion in me, yes it does. It delights me. I think it's great.

Mims: Life-long crape myrtle enthusiast has more to say

A friend told me I should have kept my mouth shut and should not have written the letter to the editor concerning crepe myrtles. Why? … because she cannot ride down DeKalb Street without seeking the tree that is different from all others and "doesn't want to cause a wreck." I also received a call this morning informing me that my sleuthing missed the real reason for the Crape murder column. Tree pruning in the historic district was the cause of the column rather than my choice of the only "different" crepe myrtle on DeKalb. It is just that when ...
