Your Views: Charter school decisions should stay at local level

Amendment 1 on the Nov. 6 ballot asks: "Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to allow state or local approval of public charter schools upon the request of local communities?"

Your Views: Charter school plan would create dual systems, tap local funding

As we go to the ballot box to elect our federal, state and local leaders, let us not be caught off guard by ballot questions asking us to amend our state constitution. As amendment question No. 1, also referred to as the Charter amendment, relates to public education and funding, I feel it is most important that we understand the question: "Provides for improving student achievement and parental involvement through more charter school options ... Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to allow state or local approval of public charter schools upon the request of local communities?"

Your Views: Obama has spent his 4 years on social engineering, not jobs

Twenty-eight pages of foreclosure notices in The Times say to me that our economy is a terribly long way from being in a recovery mode. Each of these notices represents a shattered dream for an American homeowner. I wonder who these people will vote for in November.

Your Views: Election choice should not be about morality

The headline on the column Tuesday by Trevor Thomas states, "Clear moral choice doesn't favor Obama."

Your Views: Exit 24 on I-985 badly needs better design, signs for safety

I am writing to express my dismay over the poor design of the southbound exit at Interstate 985, Exit 24. Cars that try to merge into traffic on Jesse Jewell do not realize until too late that the two exit lanes merge into one before entering the road. This has led to multiple crashes as two cars try to pull into one lane.

Your Views: Anti-abortion GOP platform anything but a war on women

As a woman, I take exception to the idiocy of political arguments that Republicans are waging a war on women or that they were taking a step back in women's rights because they came out with a strong pro-life platform.

Your Views: Biden laughed, sneered and raved for failed leftist ideals

I watch the vice presidential candidates as they debated some of the gravest issue this country and the world has had to face in the last century or perhaps ever.

Your Views: Charter plan could weaken home rule, increase taxes

Much has been written concerning the charter school referendum. There are two very significant reasons why I will vote "no."

Your Views: Both Democrats, US have turned away from God

I've always prided myself as being neutral when it came to voting, but can I say that anymore? It really saddens me, but I don't believe that I can. After watching the Democratic convention, it seems like they have pretty much drawn the line in the sand.

Your Views: Cultural change needed to reform nation’s capital

Washington can only be changed from the inside - a cultural change is needed.

Your Views: Financial picture looking grim for both businesses and US taxpayers

Our biggest threat is probably that our government is not sustainable. We are borrowing 40 percent of expenditures. Democrats claim that the Republicans want to change Social Security and Medicare. President Lyndon Johnson did that when he moved their revenues to the budget. Not changing them now will destroy them; your call.

Your Views: Letter joins chorus of ‘blame US’ over violence in Middle East

It appears that Gibson Mano (Sept. 29 Your Views letter) is a chip off the old Obama block in blaming everything that happens in the world on the United States' actions. His hard and fast assertion that the rioting and killing of our ambassador and staff people in the Middle East was the result of an obscure film that practically no one, even in the U.S., has seen, is the height of gullibility or disdain for his own country (I assume he is an American citizen).

Your Views: Empathy, trust, not blame, are a path to peace

I am writing in response to your editorial ("Freedom under fire," Sept. 16). The current state of affairs in that region demonstrates horribly how cultural values and beliefs can be a disastrous endeavor.

Your Views: Country was founded on worship of our creator

The nation's leadership has not turned too far away from our creator. I have heard it said that politics and religion don't mix and they don't. But politics, God and country do exist, and it was founded on this by our forefathers, leaders and politicians.

Your Views: Editorial about Mideast protests fails to engage in critical thinking

After reading the Sept. 16 editorial, "Freedom under fire," I have found a few errors in your thinking process, which can cause a hindrance in the critical thinking process. The errors in the critical thinking process addressed can be found in Vincent Ruggiero's text, "Beyond Feelings: A Guide to Critical Thinking" (2012).

Your Views: Prayers’ foes spark outrage, then a blessing

The flak over folks praying at Chestatee High School is one of those good news/bad news situations.

Your Views: Environmental groups trump up fears over energy

Was Bruce Vandiver's letter last week in The Times a scare tactic? I don't know. I do know that environmentalists often employ such tactics.

Your Views: Humanists have no place telling us who can pray

To Monica Miller of the American Humanist Association: As a resident of Hall County let me say that I am deeply offended by your organization's threat of legal action against Chestatee High School.

Your Views: Schools were safer when prayer was still allowed in classrooms

When I was a boy in my lower grades at Candler Elementary School on Candler Road, we said our blessing before leaving our classroom going to lunch. Every so often, these people would come to the school in the lunchroom, and Bible verses we learned we would be able to say and be rewarded with a book marker or sometimes a little Bible testament.

Your Views: Politics is still main obstacle to nuclear energy

What do we do about nuclear waste? Actually the answer is quite simple. The problem we most often run into with the high-grade questions, is political.

Your Views: Mexico should not apply a double standard on its borders

I read in your paper about the crisis on our border with Mexico. It is clear Mexico looks the other way when immigrants cross its southern border and enter the United States. I lived in south Texas for 20 years and their security is a joke. They are the most corrupt in the world.

Your Views: Humanist group’s threat over prayer is just a publicity stunt

Well, what do you know. It appears we have some more Madalyn Murray O'Hair wannabes. The American Humanist Organization of Washington, D.C., has threatened legal action against Chestatee High School to prevent high school coaches from leading and participating in prayer with the players.

Your Views: Visit to VA clinic was a positive experience

My annual visit to the VA facility in Lawrenceville prompted me to write this note about my treatment. This visit was the most professionally handled than I have ever received at a medical facility. My appointment time was right on the mark.

Your Views: We can’t allow spent nukes to be a new Chernobyl

In response to Rick Frommer's letter blaming South Carolina Democrats for failure of a private nuclear waste recycling venture at the U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River site, I don't think it matters which party controlled the state.

Your Views: Private efforts to ‘clean up’ spent nukes rejected

To add some background to the letter published Wednesday from Bobby R. Stone in Alto: About 1969, three of the biggest energy companies in the world, Allied Chemical Co., Gulf Oil Co., Royal Dutch (Oil Co.) and Shell Oil Co. formed a partnership called Allied Gulf Royal Dutch Shell. The purpose of this company was to build a nuclear recycling plant on private land near the Savannah River Site in Barnwell County, as mentioned by Mr. Stone.
