Your Views: Shutdown is hurtful to children in Hall County

My conscience will not permit me to sit this one out; mere silence would make me as guilty as they are. I refer to Congress, specifically the U.S. House of Representatives. The American people are not toys to manipulate at will. They were elected to do a job, not play some sort of Russian roulette game with the lives, well-being and futures of American citizens.

Your Views: President's policies make people more reliant on government

My comment to The White House and president is that I didn't vote for him, but I agreed to support him because only fools would want their president to fail. However, over time I've come to the conclusion that I can no longer support him, for I do not believe in his actions and policies.

Your Views: Gun safety should start with focus on the human factor

I agree with Joan King that more guns are not the answer to our gun deaths problem, but others also have made some good observations. Gun control is only one of the problems. We need to address the human factor.

Your Views: GOP should either fix or replace health law and quit obstructing

I am a retired physician and lifelong Republican voter. I have, for a number of years, believed our current health care system was in need of an overhaul. I don't know if Obamacare is the solution and only time will tell.

Your Views: Preparedness fair successful in teaching kids disaster readiness

National Preparedness Month in September ended with Gainesville-Hall County, in collaboration with Interactive Neighborhood for Kids, holding the first annual Personal and Family Preparedness Fair in our community.

Your Views: Day care center at hospital has been like a 2nd home to many

I am writing in response to the closing of the Northeast Georgia Health System child care center. The decision has been made but I want people in our community to realize how special it has been to a lot of people.

Your Views: High tolls in HOT lane can worsen traffic

I was on my way to Atlanta on Interstate 85 south recently when the accident was reported on the radio. Traffic was backing up and the lanes filled with traffic as my short trip began to look like an all-day affair.

Your Views: Gainesville needs to make road crossing safer for pedestrians

I am writing concerning the people who live in the Butler Street apartments. They are angry and concerned for their safety crossing the street and going to the store.

Your Views: Gun limits would require different ways of self-defense

After reading all of the last three opinions concerning gun control and expressing mine to Joan King, I have decided that the best way to combat the control problem is as follows:

I would like to personally thank Tina Crowe with The Hall County Road Maintenance and Sgt. Kelley Edwards with the Hall County Sheriff's Office for their help in getting speed limit signs posted on Ash Circle.

Your Views: We should not trust others for our security

I normally do not read Joan King, but the headline "More guns don't make us safer" on Tuesday drew me in. She wrote: "There are better ways to protect your home and loved ones than sleeping with a .45 under your pillow."

Your Views: Better diet is part of moral imperative for all Americans

Michelle Obama states that adding a single glass of water daily will bring improved health. Restaurants serve us, and we eat, fried Oreos, roasted watermelon, breaded fried pickles, overloaded potatoes, overloaded plates and decadent desserts. Our society's morals resemble those of Rome's Caligula. Hannah Montana has become a woman no decent man could proudly call his wife and decadence is an accepted word for Americans.

Your Views: Navy Yard deaths show why it’s easier to hire temp workers

It occurs to me that we as employers have limited ability under the laws to inquire into a potential employee's background, etc. and therefore some employers have turned to temp agencies to act as a clearinghouse for potential employees.

Your Views: Get an estimate first from your contractor before work is done

Recently I hired a Gainesville area electrician to look at a porch light that keeps burning out. Because I had used him before, I agreed to a service charge plus parts, if any. As it turned out there was really nothing wrong, but a small adjustment was made to the socket where someone had turned the light bulb too tightly, bending a contact.
