Your Views: New university’s identity is all about North Ga., not Gainesville

I writing you because I attend Gainesville State College and, as you know, North Georgia College and State University and Gainesville State consolidated to become a new university. I feel that this was a merger, not a consolidation.

Your Views: US federal government is overstepping Constitution

I can still remember when living your life based upon Biblical principles, being kind by helping others, holding the door open for someone about to enter, giving a little money to charities that try to save lives not destroy them, pay your taxes on time, work to earn your income, all would label you a model citizen.

Your Views: Nation needs a new effort to restore morality

I have been a hunter since my teens and have fired weapons from a BB gun to a 155 mm Howitzer. I am, and always will be, a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Your Views: Hall County comes up short in its dealings with Gainesville

Given the current state of affairs with the city of Gainesville, why would Hall County even consider allowing the city to provide sewer services. It seems every time Hall County enters an agreement with Gainesville, the county comes out on the short end of the stick.

Your Views: Rising debt is increasing the burden on US taxpayers

As the national debt continues to rise and exceeds $16.5 trillion, the interest paid by taxpayers is also going up. In 2012, taxpayers paid $220 billion in interest on the national debt. The U.S. has carried a debt throughout history so it may not seem important to many people.

Your Views: Editorial took oversimplified view of Deal’s budget policies

Re: Our Views, "A modest agenda," of Jan. 20: The first error I noted in this editorial was the authors of the editorial; is this a case of mistaken authority on the topic of politics? I could not obtain any information to prove that they were well versed and had authority to speak to the topic.

Your Views: Bible need not be perfect to inspire us

In response to a recent letter saying the Bible has no errors, please consider the following. St. Paul wrote, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness."

Your Views: No reason to denigrate Bible

Just when I thought I'd heard it all, I read Henry Loggins' opinion (Your Views, Feb. 8) regarding the King James Version of the Bible (a beautiful translation by the way). Silly me; for some reason I thought my eternal destiny was based on other criteria, like whether or not I believed in Jesus Christ.

Your Views: Version of Bible should offer God’s word, not man’s

I rarely respond in print to anything I read in the paper. However, Ronda Rich's recent column concerning the lady that chastised her for preferring the King James Version really caught my attention.

Your Views: Chambliss won’t be missed

Good to see Saxby Chambliss go. Just like most of Congress, he is useless. But he will have a good retirement paid for by We The People.

Your Views: More control over guns won’t stop criminals or end violence

On a recent editorial page, a writer asks: Why do they (gun owners) keep hiding behind the Second Amendment? The writer added that, when those words were written, our forefathers could not possibly have envisioned our world today.

Your Views: Constitution gives us right to bear arms, not a privilege

I read John Stockard's letter to the editor Wednesday with disappointment. Comparing our Second Amendment right to bear arms to getting a driver's license is just plain wrong. Owning guns and protecting ourselves is a right, not a privilege like driving.

Your Views: Chairman wrong to limit speaking time at meeting

Last Thursday, the Hall County Board of Commissioners convened. There was a large crowd there that night to voice opposition to a rezoning proposal. Twenty minutes was given to each side to speak.

Your Views: Some limits on gun ownership, training are within reason

Why do some gun owners come so completely unglued when you mention adding or changing gun controls? And why do they keep hiding behind the Second Amendment?

Your Views: Chambliss’ smear of Cleland in ’02 race remains unforgivable

So Sen. Saxby Chambliss has announced that he will not seek re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2014, citing "frustration" with partisan politics in Washington.

Your Views: Selma’s lesson still rings true: We should make our voices heard

Several weeks ago, we looked back at the historic march that began in Selma, Ala., in March 1965. This event was a painful time in our nation's history, but a time that we can all gather great strength from.

Your Views: A baker’s dozen buzzwords we ought to banish

Many people are like sheep concerning buzzwords. One participates and the rest follow the herd. Eventually, a buzzword becomes annoying, trite and ready for banishment.

Your Views: Future sales tax votes should be on fall ballots

The front page headline Sunday in The Times read "Where have all the voters gone?" Let's go back just a few months to the fall of 2014 when midterm elections were in the news. Recall The Times writing about how politicians in Hall County were concerned that SPLOST VII would not be passed by voters for a seventh time if SPLOST VII was placed on the November 2014 ballot?

Your Views: Bullying is hurtful at any age, even when aimed at principal

I read with concern the two recent items in The Times regarding alleged bullying at Myers Elementary (March 7 article, March 19 letter to the editor). Quite honestly, I was confused; I thought perhaps I had read the name of the school incorrectly, and even more confused when I read the principal involved in the articles. I started shaking my head, thinking,"Are you kidding me? Are they really accusing Beth Hudgins of dealing improperly with a situation so potentially hurtful?"

Your Views: Myers Elementary principal is a ‘rare gem’ in handling students

I am writing in response to the article, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville" of March 7. It saddened me to read such negative words about Beth Hudgins.

Your Views: America should take care of its own needy first

I recently read in The Times, and I was not really surprised, what sweet idea America has now: Tens of thousands of immigrant children are allowed here, in the good old u.s.a. via Florida.

Your Views: Erasing the color line would make for a better world

Amidst the horror and grief of Selma and Ferguson, I heard a tender story that I would like to share with our readers.

Your Views: GOP senators need to stop spewing hate

Mary Drummer is right on about Georgia's senators being wrong to have sent a letter to Iran. They are certainly overstepping their place and proving once again that they, of the Republican party, are incapable of sensibly leading this country's government.

Your Views: Principal at Myers Elementary is qualified to keep bullying incidents in check

I am writing in response to the article from March 7, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville." As a parent of a child in elementary school, the subject is concerning to me. However, I am not worried at all because my child goes to Myers Elementary School. I'm not worried because I have 100 percent faith in my son's teacher and his principal to do the right thing for my child, and those in his class.

Your Views: Housing market still is pointed upward this year in Hall County

There have been some recent headlines about home sales falling. Those headlines are misleading. Housing sales look different from one month to another and from one quarter to another.

Your Views: Series on foster child care opened eyes to a serious issue

On more than one occasion, I have taken pen to paper to offer my criticism of your newspaper. It is expected that we subscribers will do that. When a newspaper does something that I feel is commendable, I will also offer my praise as well as extending my subscription another quarter.
