Your Views: Story on 1936 tornado tragedy was disrespectful to its victims

Our family is very pleased that a historical marker will be placed in Gainesville to honor the ladies who worked and so bravely gave their lives in the tragic Cooper Pants Factory fire during the 1936 tornado.

Your Views: Focus on social issues won’t fix economic woes

Like many Americans who wanted change in 2008, I and many others wanted change in 2012. It is obvious now that we will not receive that change.

Your Views: ‘Be the people’ letter inspires

Thank you, Candice Pinzon, so very much for your words of wisdom on the Nov. 9 Opinion page. If everyone would "be the people" as you suggest, this world would be a better place to live for all of "U.S." (United States, especially).

Your Views: Vietnam Wall memorial is a moving tribute

I went off to Washington to see all the sights I could see. I didn't plan to stay long; I didn't know how long I would be. I got a ride with a guide. He said he could show me all the sites, and for $30, I felt that was about right.

Your Views: If Obama leads nation to pray, then re-election will be worth it

Nov. 6 has come and gone, and President Barack Obama has been re-elected for the next four years. And yet I see no singing or dancing in the streets. For the most part, it appears that the anticipated joy and happiness that was suppose to result in his re-election has been replaced by grievous disappointment and gloom and doom rhetoric.

Your Views: It’s time to stop pointing fingers, unite for our nation

Since the Nov. 6 election, I've heard lots of conservatives throwing tantrums and behaving like spoiled children.

Your Views: Obama voters, don’t cry when your jobs go overseas

Four more years of the same old, same old, except you will see rising taxes, gas prices, food prices and consumer goods prices. There is no sense in stressing out over this debacle since the majority must like socialism and a welfare state like the Soviet Union.

Your Views: With election over, leaders must unite for common good

President Barack Obama was re-elected and would hope that our national, state and local elected leaders would accept this historic fact as a second opportunity to help bring our country together and work for the common good of all of the American people.

Your Views: Better nutrition for children now means a healthier military later

As we remember the many sacrifices of our military this Veterans Day, we should also consider the upcoming generation and what our nation can do to help ensure our long-term national security.

Your Views: Americans, it's time to unite and ‘be the people’ again

Recently, I was at the National Archives and saw the hand-printed documents our country was founded upon. I cannot describe to you the emotion, the sense of honor and respect, the call to duty that seeing those frail papers firsthand produces in each and every heart.

Your Views: US will go the way of Rome

America has become Rome, and there is no doubt that we will suffer the same fate.

Your Views: Our nation has lost its way

Today, America is a lost nation. Lost by its own will, lost by turning its back on God, lost in itself.

Your Views: Free markets don’t provide best health care

While the middle-class economy, Social Security, the environment and various other justice issues are of grave concern, the primary issue for me in this election was health care.

Your Views: Fire insurance cost rises without new Hall station

I received a letter from my insurance company today; they are canceling my homeowners policy, and before you jump to conclusions, I pay my premiums on time. No, this has to do with a fire rating in my area.

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.
