Your Views: Flames of racial hatred being fanned in Fla. shooting case

I know many of you are aware of the tragic killing of a young black man, Trayvon Martin, in Florida. I don't have the facts, nor do others, but it seems to me that the shooter is being tried and convicted before it ever reaches the court room.

Your Views: County is too heavy-handed concerning storage of junk

All the commissioners need to be voted out of office. They have done nothing but ruined the lives of the poor and middle class. They've passed a storage of junk law that has people living in fear.

Your Views: Smart growth would benefit Brenau and city

I met with two friends the other day and, with our mutual interest in city planning, the topic quickly turned to the great development potential for the Georgia Mountains Center area. Indeed, there is big potential.

Your Views: Presidential race is going to the dogs right from the start

During the race for the White House, the candidates seem to be picking on each other. President Barack Obama got his chance when Gov. Mitt Romney let everyone know that he put his dog in a cage and rode him on the top of the car one day. He said the dog liked it!

Your Views: Travel teams make competition unfair in Hall County leagues

The purpose of this is not to pit down any team that plays for the Hall County Parks and Leisure Services leagues. It is to question the fairness of allowing travel teams to play in this league.

Your Views: Right wingers pull GOP down the wrong path

The GOP moderates have (quietly) spoken. Rick Santorum is out, Newt Gingrich is bankrupt and the party is not conservative.

Your Views: Rival schools unite in sorrow for lost student

On April 9, the family and friends of Reagen White suffered a tragic loss with her passing. She was a beautiful, sweet young lady who had touched many lives, and was loved by many people.

Your Views: Relay for Life event helps local effort in fight against cancer

Just as the effects of a challenging economy are felt by families in every community, cancer, too, has a far-reaching impact. No matter how the stock market is performing or what the current unemployment rate may be, there are still many people battling a cancer diagnosis and many others who are lending support alongside loved ones every day.

Your Views: Americans still divided despite our best efforts

Regarding the March 28 letter, "Pastors, protesters play race card in Fla. shooting" by Paul Barnes: Some of the information appears to be truthful. However, in my opinion, he has failed to grasp the true significance of this unfortunate incident.

Your Views: Racism and ignorance doubled with street patrols in Florida

Ignorance plus ignorance equals trouble. You may think I am talking about politicians; it does fit. But in this case, I'm referring to the neo-Nazi gang that calls themselves the National Socialist Movement patrolling the streets in Sanford, Fla.

Your Views: It’s important that a college degree leads to a good job

After buying from Philip Wilheit and Wilheit Packaging nearly 20 years, I have never had a reason to question his honesty. We are fortunate to have a man of his integrity and intelligence on the state Board of Regents. Thank you, Philip.

Your Views: T-SPLOST may be when Georgians say ‘that’s enough’

In the beginning, Georgia had a 3 percent sales tax with food exempted. One day, the Ultimate Power that controls the state of Georgia said, "I need more," and soon Georgia counties were allowed a local option sales tax. The LOST was sold as a reduction in property taxes. The state kept 3 percent of the collections.

Your Views: Parker shows her ignorance about hunting methods

Kathleen Parker, in her Oct. 23 Opinion Page article, demonstrates her complete ignorance of hunting and disdain for hunters in general by quoting or referencing comments from one of the most anti-hunting groups in this country, namely the Humane Society of the United States.

Your Views: Concern about securing border doesn’t have to be about race

I read the article by Ruben Navarrette, "Time to get smart at border (Tuesday)," and would like to help him out since he missed the boat.

Your Views: Dumping unwanted pets in someone’s yard is unforgivable

A "person" who drops a pet on someone else's property is my problem right now. Are they too cheap to feed the animal or too lazy?

Your Views: A blood donation can save as many as 3 lives, is time well spent

My mom always told me I was special, and that there was a plan and purpose for my life. I have spent my entire adult life trying to find out what made me special, and how I could make a difference in this world.

Your Views: Ga. lawmakers overdue to fix roads funding

I am very pleased to see state Sen. Steve Gooch is trying to solve our problem with road funding in Georgia. This should have been addressed years ago but has been allowed to continue to a point of emergency.

Your Views: Madison County’s decision was based on avoiding a losing battle

Perhaps guts had nothing to do with the decision the school board in Madison County made concerning the religious monument on school grounds. Maybe its members chose to not set up their county for a budget-busting legal case that could bankrupt them.

Your Views: Iraq’s problems were caused by Bush's policies, not Obama's

Response to Darrell Newton's letter Friday: Certainly, everyone has the right to say what he thinks, but they really should have the facts before doing so.

Your Views: Series on foster child care opened eyes to a serious issue

On more than one occasion, I have taken pen to paper to offer my criticism of your newspaper. It is expected that we subscribers will do that. When a newspaper does something that I feel is commendable, I will also offer my praise as well as extending my subscription another quarter.

Your Views: Trouble brewing when city allows morality to slide

I just want to extend a word of thanks to Gainesville City Councilmen Bob Hamrick and George Wangemann for taking the moral high ground on the brewery issue. Gainesville and Hall County have gotten along just fine for decades without having a brewery. Inevitably, this will bring bars and other establishments that attract unwanted attention in the form of drunkenness and other social maladies that create areas of crime and rude behavior.

Your Views: Madison County school board caves to atheists

Here we go again, folks, just another example of no guts: The school board in Madison County caved to an atheist group over a monument on school grounds that had Bible verses and quotes on it that was paid for by private donations.

Your Views: Vote could make reckless drivers share the cost of spinal injuries

Tens of thousands of Georgians live with life-long disabilities due to brain and spinal cord injury. As medical technology, safety and trauma care have improved, more people survive traumatic injury, but many then face a lifetime of physical, behavioral and cognitive impairments requiring ongoing support services.

Your Views: There’s no good reason for vote for any Democrat in fall election

When you add it all up, the steady stream of lies from the White House, the Democratic party and its supporters, the liberal left media, there is only one answer: There is NO Democratic candidate worthy of even a single vote. In fact, I don't see how a Democrat could vote for himself or herself.

Your Views: Obama’s actions have cost us peace, cost him respect

President Barack Obama withdrew all of our troops both in Iraq and Afghanistan against the recommendation of his own military, the CIA and his own secretary of defense and secretary of State.
