Your Views: Governor was right to boost funding for kids in crisis

I would like to applaud Gov. Nathan Deal for his planned cash infusion into the Department of Family and Children's Services. Case workers at DFCS have long been overworked and underpaid, resulting in their leaving. When they leave, cases that are not finished get passed on to a new caseworker. This slows down the process of getting a child into permanent placement. This is not good for children already in crisis.

Your Views: JFK captivated audiences as a riveting speaker

Ever since John F. Kennedy became a prominent public figure, political pundits and rhetorical scholars have attempted to dissect why he captivated audiences so compellingly during his thousands of speeches, press conferences and interviews.

Your Views: Gainesville police helpful in unlocking a pesky car door

On Nov. 20, I locked my keys in my car on E.E. Butler Parkway. I called the Gainesville Police Department and they sent out an officer to help me. He wasn't able to get it unlocked, so they sent out another officer. He wasn't able to, either, but the third officer was finally able to unlock my door for me. Maj. Sherman, especially, was so helpful.

Your Views: Stick to the facts when discussing climate change

Having read George C. Kaulbach's letter of Nov. 15, I thought some real data would help him and others understand global changes. NASA has been measuring sea level using satellites. From 1994 through 2012, sea levels have risen over 2 and a quarter inches, not 1 or 2 inches over the last 100 years. A chart can be found here.

Your Views: Marketing scams by phone, Web can compromise our privacy

I read about the phone scams in particular that affect older people and think how on earth people decide who to tell what to and how much to tell.

Your Views: Costly Glades project won’t add any water

With all the news about how much the Glades Reservoir project is going to cost, I have yet to see an explanation of how it adds one drop to our water supply in times of drought, which is the reason given for it being built.

Your Views: Nation now sees Obama’s shortcomings

We are beginning to see the results of putting someone in high office with little experience, limited know-how, carelessness, who is difficult to negotiate with and hesitant to admit he made a mistake.

Your Views: Gainesville Public Safety Academy is a great experience

I enrolled in the 2013 Gainesville Public Safety Academy in September and recommend all citizens to do so next year. Not only did I learn so much about the police and fire departments and what they do, but I came away with the deepest appreciation for the work they do. All personnel I met, all instructors, were very welcoming and seemed to appreciate our interest.

Your Views: Global warming verified by facts, but it likely has many causes

Facts prove global warming is happening. Recent letters and editorials were long in dire warnings, but negative on data.

Your Views: US still kicking can of fiscal responsibility

Can America survive by continually increasing the national debt? This question is becoming more apparent to many families that understand how budgets operate. The recent government shut down for 16 days helped to wake people up to the fact that something is very wrong in the federal government.

Your Views: Meals on Wheels is more than food; human contact is therapy

There have been two very meaningful stories in The Times recently concerning funding for the Meals on Wheels program in Gainesville and Hall County.

Your Views: Past presidents’ fibs were worse than Obama’s health care lies

Regarding Kathleen Parker's Nov. 7 article "Sins of omission," I realize her subject was primarily an effort to smear Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act). But if she wishes to point out lies, that quote about being able to keep your insurance was nowhere near the greatest or most damaging lie ever told. It was not even the worst of Obama's lies. That would be Obama's claim that change has come to America. He said it way more than 23 times, and we know repetition is key to making any lie believable.

Your Views: Voting glitch is another setback in public’s trust of government

I've never quite understood the national debate about getting government out of our bedrooms until election night 2013.

I want to thank the awesome businesses around the Gainesville square who handed out candy on Halloween. Your generosity made it a very festive experience for many children and adults, including myself and my two little superhero grandsons! Thank you very much!

Your Views: Immigration reform would boost economy

Citizens are concerned about the economy, the deficit and the decline of family values. Fixing our broken immigration system is a way to address these concerns in a positive way. Immigration reform will have a positive effect on our economy.
