Your Views: Why isn’t evolution still seen?

If evolution were a proven fact, why is it not still happening? Why are monkeys not turning into men? I know a lot of men that are turning into monkeys.

Your Views: True science of man’s origins is not in dispute

I was quite surprised that the letter from George Kaulbach on Feb. 20 was printed by The Times. He very selectively picked out information which supposedly supports his beliefs. It is obvious that his "research" has been limited primarily or wholly to the output of creationists, several of whom he cites.

Your Views: Walk and Roll Parkway would be an ideal name for new trail

I saw in the Feb. 20 paper that Jody Woodall was looking at names for the Central Hall Multiuse Trail from local officials. I can't wait for this trail to be built out to a usable length, which for me, would be about 7 miles.

Your Views: Religious beliefs should not be ignored to placate some groups

Whether you or I agree or not, people have a right to their beliefs, unless you oppose the left. The current issue is with the bill in Arizona that Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed.

Your Views: More guns can’t eliminate danger of human error

This letter is in response to Jim McCarthy's letter and anyone else who believes more guns in public means a safer community. I'm not sure about him, but I'm positive I live in the real world. In the real world, people who carry guns are no better or worse than everybody else, and that's the problem.

Your Views: Plentiful guns won’t help heal the pain from tragic shootings

A recent letter to the editor suggested what many in Georgia believe to be true about guns: If only we had more of them, there would be fewer gun tragedies.

Your Views: Workers cleared streets well after storm

I want to thank Hall County road maintenance workers when we had the snow and ice on the roads. I called them to clean my street along with some more streets that were covered in snow. They went far beyond what I asked them to do. Also, the street sign was knocked down and they came out immediately to put it back up.

Your Views: Here’s the real hot air problem

This letter is for all the global warming folks in your reading audience. I have figured out a cheap way to get rid of global warming: Get rid of all that hot air coming out of Washington, D.C. It's sure to get the job done.

Your Views: Members of Congress fail to protect our Constitution

An open letter to Rep. Doug Collins and Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson:

Your Views: Guns in more places could prevent tragedy

My comment concerns the position taken by Hall County Schools Superintendent Will Schofield on having guns in his schools (Feb. 19, Guns in more places: Is it a good idea?).

Your Views: Natural selection is a survival mechanism for all organisms

Evolution is a fact. But let's call it by its proper name, natural selection. Natural selection is not a "law;" it is a process where populations (including human) physically change over time to meet the challenges of an ever changing environment.

Your Views: Many scientists are now rejecting evolution as a fact

Reply to "Science vs. Religion," Saturday's Opinion page: Columnist Ann McFeatters cited a Gallup Poll that 46 percent of Americans believe God created man (humans) in their current form. This is alarming to her since the overwhelming scientific evidence is that evolution is true.

Your Views: State, local leaders deserve credit for clearing highways

After all is said and done, from my perspective, where credit is due, credit is given. The processes and actions demonstrated to keep the highways and roads open were a great and successful effort.

Your Views: Obama’s corrupt leadership has divided America, hurt capitalism

Has America developed a "death wish" mindset? Maybe it's just me, but it seems that ever since we elected our present chief executive in 2008, things have been steadily going to hell in a handbasket with Barack Obama and his corrupt, dysfunctional administration of radical "America-hating" loons. I've made a study over the last 5½ years of all the broken promises and unfilled commitments this president has made. His signature accomplishment is Obamacare. This health care system was never intended to improve health coverage for America. Its sole purpose was to divide Americans and financially destroy our capitalistic ...

Your Views: Community came together during storm

The members of the Gainesville Police Department and I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their patience, preparations and understanding during the inclement winter weather. Things could have truly been crippling had it not been for the communities support and preparedness. You, the community, took the warnings to heart, prepared and allowed us in public safety and service to conduct our jobs. You heeded the warnings to keep the roadways clear to help us ensure the safest possible outcome during this weather. At no time during this challenging weather did we ever sacrifice, suspend or alter our service to ...

Your Views: Renewing driver’s license shouldn’t be such an ordeal

Where did that five years go? Time to renew my driver's license. At least I did remember this time.

Your Views: More lies from the White House over voting case investigations

Here we go again, folks. A couple days ago, President Barack Obama spoke to an Al Sharpton audience spewing more lies that the GOP is trying to stop people from voting by requiring them to show an ID. Lie, lie, lie.

Your Views: Lula could use new blood, more reasonable rules

It is my hope that some new blood on the Lula City Council will bring an end to silly regulations like the one requiring a resident to pay a fee and to get the city's approval in order to have a yard sale on his own property. I know that part of the fee is refundable if the yard-saler cleans up his property to an inspector's satisfaction after the sale.

Your Views: Racism is used by Democrats to demonize their political foes

There is hardly a day that goes by when Democrats fail to use the term "racism" in some sort of capacity regarding conservatives. It is the current buzz word that they hope will keep them relevant in upcoming elections since they have very little else to hang their hat on: the train wreck of Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner, endless executive actions without congressional approval, and the list goes on.

Your Views: Patriots to gather May 16 in DC to support constitutional ideals

As Georgia patriots and members of Patriots for America, we are reaching out to all Georgians about the event "Operation American Spring" that is scheduled to begin in Washington on May 16.

Your Views: More guns aren’t a problem if those carrying them are legal

I am a gun owner with a concealed carry permit, and I think if more people had guns and were licensed to carry, we might have a safer city or community. My reason of thinking is if you possess such a permit, then you are less likely to commit a crime because you have paid the money for it and have no record or serious or violent crimes against you. We are basically law-abiding, gun-carrying people who are exercising our Second Amendment rights.

Your Views: Congratulations to attorney Orr on earning prestigious honor

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to congratulate E. Wycliffe "Wyc" Orr Sr. of Orr & Brown LLP in Gainesville on receiving the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award presented by the Southern Center for Human Rights.

Your Views: Sprawl lowers costs and raises quality of life

Give me the sprawl. I love it. Hopefully, Hall County municipal fathers will attempt to get sprawl (according to the Hall County sprawl index published in The Times on April 12) down to 50 from its current 103.3.

Your Views: Fort Hood shooting shows why officers should be armed

During the airing of an interview by Bill O'Reilly on Fox News on Thursday, Col. David Hunt mentioned arming the "leadership" when O'Reilly quickly blew off the suggestion. O'Reilly then continued on with leading questions about the tragedy and promoting his own agenda.

Your Views: Crime statistics don’t support tough gun laws

In his Thursday response to Jerry Callahan concerning right-to-carry laws, Michael Parker presented a comparison of Atlanta and Chicago while decrying the availability of guns. I would like to counter his argument with a comparison, albeit brief, of Chicago and Houston.
