Your views: Can Democrats win White House from the far left?

The disarray of the Democrat party can best be seen in the weak candidates seeking the party's presidential nomination. The party who could once offer political giants for high office must now settle for the strongest of the weak.

Your Views: Lower standards will jeopardize our water quality

Not only does a proposed rule change worry environmentalists, it scares this private citizen. I taught school for many years, and as a science major, I have had many opportunities to titrate water all over Hall, Dawson and Lumpkin counties. In my experience, I found very few streams, springs, rivers, etc. that had the amount of oxygen levels needed. Some did not have enough oxygen to support minnows, not to mention fish.

Your Views: Mussels are lousy to eat and taking our water

OK, so I've never had a great relationship with mussels. My first experience with them, at Charley's Crab in Washington, D.C., led to another first experience: food poisoning.

Your Views: Veterans Day is meant to be celebrated 11-11

Veterans Day, the 11th month, the 11th day, the 11th hour. What does this mean? Just that. No other day should be used to honor our fallen veterans.

Thomas: Leaders have always prayed to give thanks

It is with curious timing that our governor, Sonny Perdue, would call for an official prayer service to petition the Almighty for rain to fall upon our parched land. Many have taken issue with the governor, calling his actions everything from foolish to unconstitutional.

Your Views: Prayer alone is not enough to solve drought

I believe in the power of prayer and all it can do. At this point we will take any help we can get. However, what frustrates me the most is that once the photo opportunity in Washington was over, the urgency of this issue seems to have been forgotten. The inept political environment and policy makers in control have returned to doing nothing concrete as usual.

Your Views: Highway billboards could block out sun

I want to complain about the billboards on Interstate 985. Is it just me or am I the only one that is having a hard time reading the very important messages thereon? Sure, I can read them once I am right under them, but what about when I can see them a mile or more ahead but can't make out a word?

Your views: Georgia must take action to save our precious water

I'm getting so ticked off by the corps' response to the endangered species act this year compared to 2006, which also was tortured with drought and mismanagement of Lake Lanier. The water releases then were not as severe as this year. I guess our 2006 congressional powwow here in Gainesville ruffled their feathers.

Our Views: They are the best of us

Why do we celebrate Veterans Day? As any alert history student knows, the holiday we know by that name began as Armistice Day, when the Treaty of Versailles took effect in 1918 to mark the end of World War I, known then as The Great War and the War to End All Wars. The observance was timed to the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month; hence Nov. 11, today.

Your Views: It was a perfect season for county’s football fans

As another year of regular season high school football ends in Hall County, I am happy to say we ended with a perfect season. In a way, I am referring to the North Hall team's undefeated season. My son, Jordan Schmitt (No. 27), would end any seasons I might have in the future if I did not at least mention that.

Your Views: Wood in road causes grief to driver

About 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 7, I was traveling west on Sardis Road. Right after the Sardis Elementary School parking lot, I ran over a piece of wood in the road. I did not see the wood until I was on it because it was dark and the wood was aged and blended in with the road.

Your views: Individuals can take action to conserve water

Unless you are living under a rock, you know about the water crisis we are facing. As a state, and even community, we are hearing lots of advice and guidance on what steps the government can take to conserve and protect our water.

Our Views: Lanier can't do it alone

Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer, a last chance to enjoy a trip to the beach before school, work and cooler weather take precedence in the weeks to come.
