Your Views: Let’s resist negative talk, focus on ideas

Your Views: Waiting on GHS honor might have headed off controversy

I personally think all this hassle over the Gainesville High valedictorian could have been avoided by waiting until the last two weeks of school. Who knows what can happen in three months? What was the rush? The school folks in charge of this should have waited.

Your Views: Why vote for anti-immigrant bill if you don’t believe in it?

Your Views: Whose morality should we use when deciding on our laws?

In response to the March 9 article, "'Social issues' are really about morality" by Trevor Thomas: I just returned from a fundraiser at the Playboy Mansion in Hollywood with a group of international business leaders, where we raised millions for cancer research. Would you label me immoral for assisting cancer victims because the event was held at a landmark of the sexual revolution?

Your Views: GHS valedictorian showed class, unselfishness

I want to congratulate the Bryants on raising an outstanding son. He has shown more class, maturity and unselfishness than anyone involved in this controversy. I am sure his classmates and the community will long remember him for these traits long after others are forgotten.

Your Views: As with World War II, Middle East war should unite us in common cause

What a blessing to have the documentary "The Roosevelts" presenting an inspiring family biography filling us with the spirit of grace, inspiration and love so necessary in a time of war.

Your Views: Pro football is a worthless pastime played by violent people

OK, so again an important program was interrupted for the "nfl." I print nfl in small letters because that's how important it is to me. So they are special people who can kick a ball around. Wow! That really takes education.
