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

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: 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.

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.

Your Views: Times staffer should have backed off

In reference to The Times' photographer, Nat Gurley, charged with obstruction: I am sure Gurley was just attempting to do his job. However, the law enforcement people were also attempting to do their job.

Your Views: Obama’s policy in Syria is like Bush’s in Iraq

It's been suggested that Russia might help President Barack Obama by corralling chemical weapons in Syria and placing them under guard. We should remember this happened in Iraq before we invaded and toppled Saddam Hussein. After Gulf War I, all known weapons of mass destruction there were gathered and placed in locked storage.
