Your Views: Proposed transportation tax violates counties’ autonomy

Bruce W. Hallowell's letter, "T-SPLOST may be when Georgians say that's enough," indicates several very strong reasons to vote against this horrendous tax.

Your Views: Relay for Life event helps local effort in fight against cancer

Just as the effects of a challenging economy are felt by families in every community, cancer, too, has a far-reaching impact. No matter how the stock market is performing or what the current unemployment rate may be, there are still many people battling a cancer diagnosis and many others who are lending support alongside loved ones every day.

Your Views: Americans still divided despite our best efforts

Regarding the March 28 letter, "Pastors, protesters play race card in Fla. shooting" by Paul Barnes: Some of the information appears to be truthful. However, in my opinion, he has failed to grasp the true significance of this unfortunate incident.

Your Views: Racism and ignorance doubled with street patrols in Florida

Ignorance plus ignorance equals trouble. You may think I am talking about politicians; it does fit. But in this case, I'm referring to the neo-Nazi gang that calls themselves the National Socialist Movement patrolling the streets in Sanford, Fla.

Your Views: It’s important that a college degree leads to a good job

After buying from Philip Wilheit and Wilheit Packaging nearly 20 years, I have never had a reason to question his honesty. We are fortunate to have a man of his integrity and intelligence on the state Board of Regents. Thank you, Philip.

Your Views: T-SPLOST may be when Georgians say ‘that’s enough’

In the beginning, Georgia had a 3 percent sales tax with food exempted. One day, the Ultimate Power that controls the state of Georgia said, "I need more," and soon Georgia counties were allowed a local option sales tax. The LOST was sold as a reduction in property taxes. The state kept 3 percent of the collections.

Your Views: ACF group has not yet taken a stance on Glades Reservoir

In the March 24 article, "Glades Reservoir creates ripples downstream," some readers may have received the impression that Dave McLain, who stated his opposition to the Glades Reservoir, was speaking on behalf of the ACF Stakeholders Inc., an organization made up of representatives from the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint sub-basins of the entire ACF watershed.

Your Views: After family’s loss, let’s continue to pray, strive to cure cancer

I want to thank the people who shared our grief during the illness of my wife Hazel Jenkins as she went through several months of suffering with cancer. Your prayers, your words of courage and many cards and gifts meant so much to the Jenkins family.

Your Views: Don’t be too good to pick up trash

I pick up litter (recycling actually). Most any day in Clermont, I can be found trucking around the town with my plastic bags and my dog picking up plastic bottles and cans, and I have learned a few things about our culture by doing so.

I live in Rabbittown, a small community with lots of woods but lots of homes.

Your Views: Officials turn ‘fees’ we pay into new ‘taxes’

I read with interest the article relating to Flowery Branch beautifying downtown that stated "bids came in under the grant amount, so the city scrambled to find other ways to use as much of the money as possible."

Your Views: Hired soldiers are put in difficult, violent situations in warfare

Thank you for the thoughtful editorial of March 18. I might have titled it, "What else could we expect?"

Your Views: Pastors, protesters play race card in Fla. shooting

Well, well, well. I see the race prostitute, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, was in Atlanta. It wasn't devastating enough for him that a family lost a loved one, so let's see why Mr. Jackson is really here besides what money he thinks he can make.

Your Views: Renewing driver’s license shouldn’t be such an ordeal

Where did that five years go? Time to renew my driver's license. At least I did remember this time.

Your Views: More lies from the White House over voting case investigations

Here we go again, folks. A couple days ago, President Barack Obama spoke to an Al Sharpton audience spewing more lies that the GOP is trying to stop people from voting by requiring them to show an ID. Lie, lie, lie.

Your Views: Lula could use new blood, more reasonable rules

It is my hope that some new blood on the Lula City Council will bring an end to silly regulations like the one requiring a resident to pay a fee and to get the city's approval in order to have a yard sale on his own property. I know that part of the fee is refundable if the yard-saler cleans up his property to an inspector's satisfaction after the sale.

Your Views: Racism is used by Democrats to demonize their political foes

There is hardly a day that goes by when Democrats fail to use the term "racism" in some sort of capacity regarding conservatives. It is the current buzz word that they hope will keep them relevant in upcoming elections since they have very little else to hang their hat on: the train wreck of Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner, endless executive actions without congressional approval, and the list goes on.

Your Views: Patriots to gather May 16 in DC to support constitutional ideals

As Georgia patriots and members of Patriots for America, we are reaching out to all Georgians about the event "Operation American Spring" that is scheduled to begin in Washington on May 16.

Your Views: More guns aren’t a problem if those carrying them are legal

I am a gun owner with a concealed carry permit, and I think if more people had guns and were licensed to carry, we might have a safer city or community. My reason of thinking is if you possess such a permit, then you are less likely to commit a crime because you have paid the money for it and have no record or serious or violent crimes against you. We are basically law-abiding, gun-carrying people who are exercising our Second Amendment rights.

Your Views: Congratulations to attorney Orr on earning prestigious honor

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to congratulate E. Wycliffe "Wyc" Orr Sr. of Orr & Brown LLP in Gainesville on receiving the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award presented by the Southern Center for Human Rights.

Your Views: Sprawl lowers costs and raises quality of life

Give me the sprawl. I love it. Hopefully, Hall County municipal fathers will attempt to get sprawl (according to the Hall County sprawl index published in The Times on April 12) down to 50 from its current 103.3.

Your Views: Fort Hood shooting shows why officers should be armed

During the airing of an interview by Bill O'Reilly on Fox News on Thursday, Col. David Hunt mentioned arming the "leadership" when O'Reilly quickly blew off the suggestion. O'Reilly then continued on with leading questions about the tragedy and promoting his own agenda.

Your Views: Crime statistics don’t support tough gun laws

In his Thursday response to Jerry Callahan concerning right-to-carry laws, Michael Parker presented a comparison of Atlanta and Chicago while decrying the availability of guns. I would like to counter his argument with a comparison, albeit brief, of Chicago and Houston.
