Your Views: Road salt can wash off into waterways, kill wildlife

I would like to remind the people of one of the problems of the past ordeal of the ice and snow, one that goes unnoticed. In fact, one of several that goes unnoticed: The great amounts of salt and sand put out over so great an area so quickly once a snowstorm hits an area.

Your Views: Daylight saving time causes more problems than it solves

The continuing fiasco of daylight saving time use is long past justification. Economic cost due to associated problems, confusion, schedule disruption, etc., exceed any savings.

Your Views: Why isn’t evolution still seen?

If evolution were a proven fact, why is it not still happening? Why are monkeys not turning into men? I know a lot of men that are turning into monkeys.

Your Views: True science of man’s origins is not in dispute

I was quite surprised that the letter from George Kaulbach on Feb. 20 was printed by The Times. He very selectively picked out information which supposedly supports his beliefs. It is obvious that his "research" has been limited primarily or wholly to the output of creationists, several of whom he cites.

Your Views: Walk and Roll Parkway would be an ideal name for new trail

I saw in the Feb. 20 paper that Jody Woodall was looking at names for the Central Hall Multiuse Trail from local officials. I can't wait for this trail to be built out to a usable length, which for me, would be about 7 miles.

Your Views: Religious beliefs should not be ignored to placate some groups

Whether you or I agree or not, people have a right to their beliefs, unless you oppose the left. The current issue is with the bill in Arizona that Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed.

Your Views: More guns can’t eliminate danger of human error

This letter is in response to Jim McCarthy's letter and anyone else who believes more guns in public means a safer community. I'm not sure about him, but I'm positive I live in the real world. In the real world, people who carry guns are no better or worse than everybody else, and that's the problem.

Your Views: Plentiful guns won’t help heal the pain from tragic shootings

A recent letter to the editor suggested what many in Georgia believe to be true about guns: If only we had more of them, there would be fewer gun tragedies.

Your Views: Workers cleared streets well after storm

I want to thank Hall County road maintenance workers when we had the snow and ice on the roads. I called them to clean my street along with some more streets that were covered in snow. They went far beyond what I asked them to do. Also, the street sign was knocked down and they came out immediately to put it back up.

Your Views: Here’s the real hot air problem

This letter is for all the global warming folks in your reading audience. I have figured out a cheap way to get rid of global warming: Get rid of all that hot air coming out of Washington, D.C. It's sure to get the job done.

Your Views: Members of Congress fail to protect our Constitution

An open letter to Rep. Doug Collins and Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson:

Your Views: Guns in more places could prevent tragedy

My comment concerns the position taken by Hall County Schools Superintendent Will Schofield on having guns in his schools (Feb. 19, Guns in more places: Is it a good idea?).

Your Views: Natural selection is a survival mechanism for all organisms

Evolution is a fact. But let's call it by its proper name, natural selection. Natural selection is not a "law;" it is a process where populations (including human) physically change over time to meet the challenges of an ever changing environment.

Your Views: Many scientists are now rejecting evolution as a fact

Reply to "Science vs. Religion," Saturday's Opinion page: Columnist Ann McFeatters cited a Gallup Poll that 46 percent of Americans believe God created man (humans) in their current form. This is alarming to her since the overwhelming scientific evidence is that evolution is true.

Your Views: State, local leaders deserve credit for clearing highways

After all is said and done, from my perspective, where credit is due, credit is given. The processes and actions demonstrated to keep the highways and roads open were a great and successful effort.

Your Views: Legality of assisted suicide in Montana remains in the courts

I disagree with Joan King that assisted suicide, which she refers to by the euphemism "aid in dying," is legal in Montana.

Your Views: Islamic State proving to be no ‘JV squad’

Never in our history has our commander in chief been more concerned about telling our enemies what he's not going to do rather than taking the advice of his experienced defense and military advisers.

Your Views: Why should tax money go to fix up mall?

Did I really read that correctly? Are Hall County and Gainesville really considering giving taxpayers' monies to spruce up Lakeshore Mall? (story here)

Your Views: Automated essay scoring could lead to high-tech ways to fool it

As a writing teacher at UNG, I spend a great deal of time during the summer and into August thinking about the incoming group of students I will be closely working with during the fall semester. Currently, I have been thinking a lot about how much of my students' writing has been graded by a computer and not a human, an unfortunate reality in this era of high-stakes testing.

Your Views: Blue Cross, Health System need to work out a deal to benefit all

It is beyond my understanding the disagreement going on between Blue Cross Blue Shield Georgia and Northeast Georgia Health System. (story here) This sounds to me like there is a personality problem somewhere. If both parties are committed to reaching an agreement, I suggest starting negotiations with new people.

Your Views: Judge Jolliff has served well

I would like to tell Judge Cliff Jolliff how much I appreciate and respect him. Having been in his court a few times, I could see his main concern was the welfare of the children involved in all court cases. I could also see how difficult it was for him to deal with many difficult custody cases. I would not want to have that responsibility for any amount of money.

Your Views: Carson may be the healer nation needs

I have seen many decades roll by like a flash in my lifetime. As I reflect on them, I can't remember a time when we were in such dire need of leadership. If we continue to travel the road we are now traveling our destination is doom.

Your Views: Ice bucket challenges could do more harm in the long run

I saw the pictures in Tuesday's paper (Aug. 19) depicting Brenau University participating in the ALS ice bucket challenge. I was very upset to see this type of behavior being promoted as a fundraiser by ALS or Brenau.

Your Views: Columnist’s rant on hyphens might have cost him a reader

Re: Ruben Navarrette Jr. column in The Times on Tuesday: "Who's afraid of a little ol' hyphen?" Over elapsed time, I have considered this person's articles as relatively coherent. What happened?

Your Views: Who can pray? Everyone can

We shouldn't be told when and where we can pray. If a person doesn't like it, then they should stay home. We Christians also have our right to pray. God runs this world, not a few people who do not believe in God.

Your Views: Planning group seems a waste

Why do we have a Gainesville-Hall Metropolitan Planning Organization? Anyone should know you can't take funding from one road project to another. Does this group do anything to help get roads improved? I see this group as a waste of money and time.

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.
