Do teachers want illegal students to save their jobs?

You want your cake and eat it, too, as my mom use to say. Brandon Givens' views on immigration reform (July 1) leave out a few key points.

Global warming fears are just another way to control people

This is in response to a recent article by Joan King. In it, she sounded so exasperated, feeling like she'd written everything and all she could concerning global warming and yet some of us skeptics still don't get it. She talks of a consensus of scientists who are all on board with this theory. She also stated they had come to an agreement it is caused by man-made carbon emissions.

Stop criminals from crossing our borders

On July 1, The Times had a piece on Georgia House Bill 87. On July 3, there was another article declaring HB 87 as un-Christian.

History shows discrimination is just wrong

I appreciated the article in the July 3 editon of The Times, "Christian leaders struggle with immigration law." I noted that one of the persons you quoted said, "Laws are important."

Political correctness forces Southern traditions to sidelines

Have you heard what Bill O'Reily said on Fox News recently? A school in New York City can't mention religion, so the children are singing "When the ants go marching in."

Price of more than gas has skyrocketed

I noticed an item in the paper recently that caught my attention. It stated that Social Security was projecting a cost-of-living adjustment of 0.9 percent for this year. This, after figuring that the cost of living had not gone up at all the last two years. Talk about adding insult to injury.

Marriage is a sacrament that should be between man, woman

It is difficult for me to understand Cokie Roberts' explanations and justifications for her opinions of homosexual acceptance.

Residents deserve to know how Hall commissioners made cuts

What was the process for deciding "who" and "what" got cut from the recently approved Hall County budget?

We need to elect people who believe in fiscal responsibility

I have seen a couple of articles where Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., has referred to tea party people as extremist. He is the third-leading Democratic senator and has held his office for about 12 years. Currently we have a financial crisis, an immigration crisis, Social Security is going broke, Medicare is going broke, our energy policy is a disaster, food prices are terrible, etc. Most of our congressmen have been there over 10 years and are doing a terrible job.

Commissioners’ actions made Hall County weak

One Hall County commissioner has indicated to me that he plans to "modify the tax bill to allow for people to donate to the programs that were cut." Here is my reaction to that commissioner's statement:

New leaders are needed in Hall, city governments

The financial health and well-being of this county and the city of Gainesville will get no better until new people step forward to run for the Hall County Board of Commissioners and the Gainesville City Council.

Red Rabbit buses provide a vital service for many in Hall

I am a faithful rider of the Red Rabbit. I write you today to ask you not to cut the Red Rabbit service in Hall County. In the newspaper, the article read "For the few folks who ride the Red Rabbit ... would get a ride with family, friends, churches, other charities or taxi cab."

Commissioners should help out, cut their own pay

I find it very interesting Commissioner Billy Powell portrays the attitude that if we cannot increase taxes, than we can fix those who impose it by cutting out things of theirs. Notice that the commissioners were not willing to take a cut in pay to help out.

Let Hall residents control more of community’s needs

I'm am tired of hearing and reading about government budget woes. Those in office have abused the system to the point that failure is inevitable.

Your Views: Updating Hall’s emergency 911 system is a golden opportunity

The proposed updating of Hall County's Emergency 911 system, as outlined in the Sunday issue of The Times, offers a golden opportunity to install an emergency call system which really meets the needs of area residents and travelers.

Your Views: Changing presidents doesn’t alter flow of power

Several years ago, I decided to try these new fluorescent bulbs that had caused such a fuss. So, the next bulb that went out at my house, I removed the old incandescent bulb and replaced it with the new experimental fluorescent bulb.

Your Views: Be careful what you wish for on Electoral College

Lots of people want the Electoral College to be abolished, and to establish term limits on our officials. In some cases that might be a good thing. I sure can think of lots of people in our government I'd like to toss out!

Your Views: Consequences of public apathy could be felt in SPLOST vote

Few people take an active interest in government affairs, though I challenge each reader to give me one example where government is not involved in your life, directly or indirectly. I have asked that question since 1986 and have yet to receive a viable answer.

Your Views: US foreign policy is a sad dramatic tale

If it weren't so tragic, the Obama legacy could be described as a soap opera, with U.S. international policy changing daily like the scripts and players change on the soaps.

Your Views: Volunteer’s work with hospital was worth sharing with readers

Thank you, C.L. Abercrombie, for the lovely article about a lovely lady, Lorena Collins. I had the privilege of having Lorena by my side Monday afternoons at the South Patient Tower Information Desk at Northeast Georgia Medical Center for a year and a half. She proved to be as knowledgeable and capable as any employee, and wonderful company. I am blessed to know her, and so glad you "introduced" her to your readership!

My father served for over four years on a mine-layer ship during World War II. He came out as a first class petty officer. My uncle fought the Japanese as a machine gunner during World War II. He came out as an E-6. I served during the Vietnam conflict. I came out as a captain.

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.
