Your Views: More foster homes needed in Hall County

Hall County is in desperate need of foster homes, because families in crisis need our community support. I see several charitable efforts within our county, but there is one need that I believe is sadly overlooked by many. I am not altogether certain that people even know that we need more foster parents. I am optimistic that once the wonderful faith-based community of Hall County learns about this need, it will rise to the challenge.

Your Views: Poverty, not race, is what breeds crime

There is lot of talk lately about violent crime among young blacks. I keep hearing people say it all comes down to individual choice. Are they suggesting young black men simply make far more bad choices than young white men?

Your Views: Incident with Hall jail escapee raises questions

Sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, hearing loss, contamination of soil, air and water causing various health ailments; these are factors that officials should consider before issuing Conditional Use Variances and special permits that allow industrial operations in or adjacent to residential areas.

Your Views: Traffic problems persist at Lanier Islands Parkway

Northbound Peachtree Industrial Boulevard at Lanier Islands Parkway is a nightmare. What was once two lanes northbound, with a right-turn lane and a left-turn lane, is now a single lane northbound with only a left-turn lane. Traffic flow through the area has turned into a single line of cars up to a half-mile long, forced to navigate a maze of orange construction barrels.

Your Views: Those pushing a racial agenda want US to fail

The events surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin and the trial of George Zimmerman have led me to a couple of conclusions that I think warrant some serious consideration by all Americans.

Your Views: Gainesville police respond quickly to a resident in need

On July 6, I let my wife out of my pickup truck at a local restaurant. The sky had opened up, and the rainfall was tremendous. I then drove to a parking space, opened the door and my umbrella, locked the door and stepped out.

Your Views: Hall fire crews, medical center came to rescue of injured visitor

I want to thank the Hall County Fire Department for carrying me out of Chicopee Woods on July 10. I was working with a crew from the Elachee Nature Science Center in the deep woods on a project. I was unable to get out on my own due to my injuries and was so grateful to see these guys.

Your Views: Our patriotic past should be celebrated

On Thursday, July 4, we had planned on attending a cookout and watching the fireworks. It was rained out. As a result, I watched the movie "Yankee Doodle Dandy," starring Jimmy Cagney.

Your Views: Brewer’s lifetime of dedicated service rises above one incident

I regret not having written this sooner in praise of Jim "Bimbo" Brewer, former witness advocate for Hall County Sheriff's Office. He's been splashed on front page again rehashing a small incident, albeit a momentary lack of judgment call, an instant decision to help someone while off duty. After his many years of dedicated service with an unblemished record, he was in his home, off duty, yet having to make an instant decision to go to the aid of folks needing him.

Your Views: Are we really that concerned about privacy anymore?

Right now we have a golden opportunity that we are rarely afforded by our gridlocked political system: A true, full, broad and deep national debate on what we want as far as a balance of security, privacy and convenience.
