Your Views: Good deed at local restaurant will be passed on to others

On New Year's Day, three senior citizens had a lovely surprise: A wonderful, anonymous gentleman paid for our dinners at Texas Roadhouse. This is our way to say "thank you" and let him know that we surely will pass it forward.

Your Views: Every American has right to pray, even in schools

As I have read with much interest the editorials, news reports and letters to the editor over the past few months and weeks about the lawsuit that has been filed and the outrage of those that don't want to hear a prayer, let alone have their children hear it in schools or any other public place, I am reminded I also have the right to pray anywhere I so choose.

Your Views: Letter writer fails to recognize accomplishments under Obama

I am writing a rebuttal to the letter posted Dec. 27 from Gary Gambrell. He questions the intellect of all who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and again in 2012. He lists "facts" why our country is worse off during President Obama's term in office, all of which I am sure he heard on Fox News.

Your Views: No one should force prayers, but expression of faith should be OK

I agree with Michael W. Parker of Flowery Branch on his views. No one has the right to force prayer or their own belief on anyone.

Your Views: Picking up just 5 pieces of trash daily could make our county sparkle

I have always had a disgust for litter. To me people are the ones who should take care of the world we live in. After all, aren't we the only creatures who create litter?

Your Views: Gruber has been proven right about ‘stupidity’ of voting public

When I first heard the comments made by Prof. Jonathan Gruber, the architect of the Affordable Care Act, concerning the intellect ("stupidity," he said) of the American people, I was offended.

Your Views: Civil Service Board takes careful steps to issue fair decisions

Over the last year, the Civil Service Board has come under fire regarding their review of employment termination decisions from various Hall County offices. In particular, their review of the termination of Deputies Dodd and Henslee has rankled the Hall County Sheriff's Office and the Board of Commissioners.

Your Views: Donations help Medical Center Foundation on its healing mission

The holiday season brings out the best in many, and I have seen a multitude of blessings come from the season of giving we have just completed with The Medical Center Foundation's Healthy Journey Campaign.

Your Views: No one should force prayers on anyone else

With the holiday season, especially Christmas, the news fills with stories about threats to our most sacred religious values, Christmas and prayer in school. Two recent letters published in The Times touch on these subjects.

Your Views: Global ‘warming’ is looking pretty cold so far this winter

Has anyone noticed that record-breaking temperatures are taking place all over the country, including Georgia? New York recently was under a blanket of snow, as much as 9 feet in places. Schools and businesses were closed and even the Buffalo Bills football game was moved in only the third week in November.

Your Views: Let’s remember joys of Christmas past, not just gifts

It's Christmas. It's the end of the year. That time of year where everyone is enjoying the holiday festivities and winding down from their busy lives. It's a time for joy, for peace, for happiness, for forgiveness and for kindness.

Your Views: Nation is in decline as it turns away from our Christian values

Well, it's almost Christmas again and it's supposed to be a happy time of year. It's meant to be a time to focus on the one it's really all about, our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

Your Views: Learn more about life by escaping comfort zone of your small town

Life in a small town is great for a while. Many of us grow up in the comfort of a small town where we all gather on Friday nights to cheer on the local football team and go to church on Sunday mornings.

Your Views: Lula Christmas parade was topped by a glorious full moon

In spite of rain and clouds on a recent Saturday, our city of Lula, as well as other towns in the area, was busy preparing annual Christmas celebration festivities on Dec. 6. Our mayor and council had voted to purchase new (and much needed) Christmas lights and decorations for the town.

Your Views: Selma’s lesson still rings true: We should make our voices heard

Several weeks ago, we looked back at the historic march that began in Selma, Ala., in March 1965. This event was a painful time in our nation's history, but a time that we can all gather great strength from.

Your Views: A baker’s dozen buzzwords we ought to banish

Many people are like sheep concerning buzzwords. One participates and the rest follow the herd. Eventually, a buzzword becomes annoying, trite and ready for banishment.

Your Views: Future sales tax votes should be on fall ballots

The front page headline Sunday in The Times read "Where have all the voters gone?" Let's go back just a few months to the fall of 2014 when midterm elections were in the news. Recall The Times writing about how politicians in Hall County were concerned that SPLOST VII would not be passed by voters for a seventh time if SPLOST VII was placed on the November 2014 ballot?

Your Views: Bullying is hurtful at any age, even when aimed at principal

I read with concern the two recent items in The Times regarding alleged bullying at Myers Elementary (March 7 article, March 19 letter to the editor). Quite honestly, I was confused; I thought perhaps I had read the name of the school incorrectly, and even more confused when I read the principal involved in the articles. I started shaking my head, thinking,"Are you kidding me? Are they really accusing Beth Hudgins of dealing improperly with a situation so potentially hurtful?"

Your Views: Myers Elementary principal is a ‘rare gem’ in handling students

I am writing in response to the article, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville" of March 7. It saddened me to read such negative words about Beth Hudgins.

Your Views: America should take care of its own needy first

I recently read in The Times, and I was not really surprised, what sweet idea America has now: Tens of thousands of immigrant children are allowed here, in the good old u.s.a. via Florida.

Your Views: Erasing the color line would make for a better world

Amidst the horror and grief of Selma and Ferguson, I heard a tender story that I would like to share with our readers.

Your Views: GOP senators need to stop spewing hate

Mary Drummer is right on about Georgia's senators being wrong to have sent a letter to Iran. They are certainly overstepping their place and proving once again that they, of the Republican party, are incapable of sensibly leading this country's government.

Your Views: Principal at Myers Elementary is qualified to keep bullying incidents in check

I am writing in response to the article from March 7, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville." As a parent of a child in elementary school, the subject is concerning to me. However, I am not worried at all because my child goes to Myers Elementary School. I'm not worried because I have 100 percent faith in my son's teacher and his principal to do the right thing for my child, and those in his class.

Your Views: Housing market still is pointed upward this year in Hall County

There have been some recent headlines about home sales falling. Those headlines are misleading. Housing sales look different from one month to another and from one quarter to another.

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.
