Your Views: Don’t trash your home with TV

Turn off your TV. You have the power to remotely control television programming. You have the power to upgrade the quality of the television industry. Advertisers are not going to pay for darkened TV screens.

Your Views: McEver Road repairs should be a higher priority

I am curious to know how a main road like McEver Road can be closed for such an extended period of time? We live off Jim Crow Road so we have been taking the detour like everyone else since the heavy rains last month caused the washout.

Your Views: Evaluations of teachers should be centered on common criteria

I would like to respond to the letter published May 8 by Ron Walker about teacher evaluations being an art rather than a science. I feel a teacher should be evaluated to better determine their performance and, more importantly, their pay.

Your Views: Teachers need a seat at table in school decisions

I am sorry to read of our continuing budget woes in Monday's article about the Hall County Board of Education. The single, thin ray of sunshine is that Superintendent Will Schofield might include teachers in the decision-making process regarding teacher pay.

Your Views: Scandals make Obama no better than Republicans

Jim Gorman's recent letter finished with this thought: We the people are supposed to be in control of our government, not a political elite ruling class. I agree. I see a ruling class whose strategic interest differs radically from that of most Americans. I see a ruling class composed of Wall Street and the corporate establishment. We call this democracy, but it does not seem to serve our interests or our political will. Instead, it serves the will of an artificial person called the corporation.

Your Views: Obama administration’s litany of lies deserve to be criticized

Recently a letter appeared in which the writer condemned the Times for a commentary by the editorial board that sharply criticized the Obama administration. In reading and rereading the column, I find no fault in the editorial that truthfully stated what must be illegal acts by the Internal Revenue Service and the attorney general.

Your Views: Failing to spend on infrastructure is penny-wise but pound-foolish

When the latest natural disaster hit Hall County, my thoughts were that my favorite barbecue restaurant might be out of business. For want of the proper conduits, the city of Flowery Branch was flooded. Culverts of my own middle age are no longer capable of their intended capacity let alone in their compromised states. Corrugated metal pipe is not capable of lasting its intended 25-year life-span in Hall County.

Your Views: Doctors should do their part to head off painkiller addictions

A member of my family is addicted to narcotic painkillers. She has been addicted for over a decade. But this letter is not about her; it is about all the doctors in the Hall County area who have fed her addiction.

Your Views: Federal sex survey is not what government should be doing

I was stunned to read in Sunday's Times that the federal government was trying to get a sex history survey answered by seventh-graders on up. Since the federal government is not in the medical field, I think a good old-fashioned Southern phrase is the best reply to that questioning: It is none of their beeswax!

Your Views: Grads, some tips on how to not be unemployable

Speaking from a rather unpleasant experience of my own, I would love to share some pointers on employment and job searching. Much of this will sound redundant but my primary focus is for those in high school or younger.

Your Views: Hall libraries offer programs to encourage summer readers

Summer vacation is finally here! It is also time for the Hall County Library System's Summer Reading Program.

Your Views: Editorial rushed to judgment, unfairly attacked president

The Times' editorial of May 19 ("Our Views: What a tangled web") demands a response, in the interest of objectivity and fair play, values which were so utterly lacking in that piece.

Your Views: Military heroes are a national treasure to US

To the families of the courageous men and women who served in the United States military: These veterans; our treasure in earthen vessels, these soldiers left a strong foundation for which we can stand.

Your Views: Push to raise Lanier’s level based on costs

In response to a concern about our push to increase the full pool of Lake Lanier to 1,073 feet: While we don't like to see public recreation areas and personal property compromised by high water levels, it is very instructive to see what the effects of 1,073 are on the surrounding lake areas.

Your Views: Administration continues to fuel an overall distrust of government

The Obama administration is at it again. According to President Barack Obama, he doesn't know half of what is going on in his administration, since he finds out things when he sees it on the news, like the IRS scandal. Then there was Benghazi, which the administration blamed on a movie instead of an organized terrorist organization. Then Hillary Clinton says "what difference does it make," like who cares?
