Your Views: Drivers, please stop, use your turn signals at busy crossroads

What is wrong with some drivers? They don't use turn signals or stop at stop signs. Where do they think they are, the land of Dr. Seuss?

Your Views: Help needed for stray animal in need

Animal abuse can go two ways: The people who cause it and the people who look away.

Your Views: Dishonoring military, faith, traditions will haunt our nation

I come from a generation that remembers an America where family was the basis for the training of the minds and hearts of our children. I remember an America that believed in the validity of an almighty God that oversees the affairs of men.

Your Views: Financial travails of one ‘Fred Gov’ may seem familiar

Your Views: Time for Obama to grow up, lead in budget battle

I have been watching with disgust the growing fear mongering as sequestration looms closer. Now it is only days away and our "campaigner in chief" is either clueless or bored with the whole process to come up with solutions. Instead, he is falling back on his comfort zone: blame Bush, blame the Republicans and hit the road to campaign some more.

Your Views: New fee benefits car dealers

Previous letter writers have pointed out serious flaws in the new vehicle tax reform. These include the never-ending "birthday tax" on those who can't afford to trade in their old car, and the tax-on-tax impact of financing a vehicle.

Your Views: Insurance policy was lost due to poor Hall County fire coverage

Well, it looks like we owe the county commissioners a big thank you. I just received notice that my homeowner's insurance will not be renewed because "... the existing fire department service is inadequate." It was rated in the worst category. In the words of my longtime insurance agent, "basically it means they get there in time to stop the fire from spreading to other houses."

Your Views: Public media doesn’t provide the whole truth

First I would like to thank our newspaper because it seems reasonably well balanced. Among others, they offer Roberts and King for a liberal view and Sowell and Krauthammer for a conservative view of our country.

Your Views: Vehicle title ‘fee’ is really a tax on borrowed money

In the article on vehicle tax reform, state Sen. Butch Miller says the new title fee is a part of a larger reform package designed to cut taxes. There are only four ways for governments to collect money: taxes, fees, civil penalties or criminal penalties. Individuals have only two sources of funds for paying these: income and borrowing.

Your Views: Atlanta can make streets safer by taking guns from criminals

I saw on the Channel 2 news the other day that some African-American leaders in Atlanta were protesting at gun shops against the manufacturing of guns saying, "they intentionally flood the streets with guns to kill our young people."

In response to Ron Hooper's letter of Feb. 13 concerning the nation debt: To quote Karl Rove, "the deficit doesn't matter."

Your Views: Our children should not aim to achieve only the minimum

As a teacher, I find the president's call for an increase in the federal minimum wage to $9 per hour particularly worrisome. As we increase the amount that businesses are minimally required to pay their employees, we place more and more value on the types of jobs to which those wages are attached. We also increase the emphasis on the idea of the minimum.

Your Views: State’s new car title fee indeed needs ‘tweaking’ to make it fair

Several weeks ago, an article in The Times mentioned that the new "birthday tax" law was due for some "tweaking." I assumed this was to account for the fact that the law was passed in such a rush that several issues were left unclear or unfair.

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: Changing presidents doesn’t alter flow of power

Several years ago, I decided to try these new fluorescent bulbs that had caused such a fuss. So, the next bulb that went out at my house, I removed the old incandescent bulb and replaced it with the new experimental fluorescent bulb.

Your Views: Be careful what you wish for on Electoral College

Lots of people want the Electoral College to be abolished, and to establish term limits on our officials. In some cases that might be a good thing. I sure can think of lots of people in our government I'd like to toss out!

Your Views: Consequences of public apathy could be felt in SPLOST vote

Few people take an active interest in government affairs, though I challenge each reader to give me one example where government is not involved in your life, directly or indirectly. I have asked that question since 1986 and have yet to receive a viable answer.

Your Views: US foreign policy is a sad dramatic tale

If it weren't so tragic, the Obama legacy could be described as a soap opera, with U.S. international policy changing daily like the scripts and players change on the soaps.

Your Views: Volunteer’s work with hospital was worth sharing with readers

Thank you, C.L. Abercrombie, for the lovely article about a lovely lady, Lorena Collins. I had the privilege of having Lorena by my side Monday afternoons at the South Patient Tower Information Desk at Northeast Georgia Medical Center for a year and a half. She proved to be as knowledgeable and capable as any employee, and wonderful company. I am blessed to know her, and so glad you "introduced" her to your readership!

My father served for over four years on a mine-layer ship during World War II. He came out as a first class petty officer. My uncle fought the Japanese as a machine gunner during World War II. He came out as an E-6. I served during the Vietnam conflict. I came out as a captain.

Your Views: Tips to take control of your own happiness

When I lost my wife due to illness, there were times I have said to myself, "Where do I go from here?" I have tried to build my life in the comparison of building a house by asking myself: It is not how your house looks like after it is built, but what is the house is build upon?

Your Views: One good turn earns another from Gainesville policeman

I just had a couple of things to buy at a local supermarket. As I pulled into the parking lot, I saw a parking place for the disabled. I had a hanging disability tag but someone stole it from my truck. My husband had warned me not to park in the disabled parking spaces until I had gotten the new tag for my car. But my back really hurt that day and I was only to be in the store for a few minutes.

Your Views: US Electoral College still is relevant today

In The Times on Sept. 26, 2011, Len Robbins' column, "My biannual rant about the Electoral College," asked the question, "Why should a person's vote in Wyoming count more than mine?" Wallace Armstrong's opinion of Feb. 6 seems to be the same song.

Your Views: Electoral College might be a plus only for Republican candidates

In response to a letter advocating abolishment of the Electoral College, a reader cites the 2010 census and states that since more than 80 percent of the U.S. population now lives in urban areas, abolishment of the College "would almost guarantee there would be a Democratic president in the U.S. forever."

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.
