Your Views: Lions Club seeks support for Children’s Theater fundraiser

I want to take this opportunity to thank the Gainesville-Hall County community and even surrounding counties for their support of the Gainesville Lions Club. You have bought our mops and brooms, donated to our White Cane project which pays for eye surgeries and you have contributed to our fundraising endeavors over the years. The community we serve is the community that supports us.

Your Views: GOP behavior will come back to haunt party

Even with America's present distractions, problems and challenges, and Republicans' utter failure on the budget standoff, Republicans cannot be counted on to behave sensibly with the next budget negotiations. There are many things, however, which favor this not happening, the major one being the proximity of next year's elections.

Your Views: College’s former president thankful for community’s ongoing support

I believe I have written three letters to The Times over the years, one in which I tried to make the case that public schools can not do it alone and must have the support of the larger community in meeting the challenging needs and demands placed upon it.

Your Views: Obama’s place in history set by legacy of lies

As I survey the political landscape, I see what an unmitigated mess our country is in. I keep saying to myself this is all a terrible nightmare. Unfortunately, it is not a nightmare but reality.

Your Views: Health care mess shows we can’t spend our way to solutions

President John F. Kennedy said, "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

Your Views: Elected officials need to be held accountable to public

Your editorial this past Sunday was a perfect example of what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they spoke of the need for a free press in our country. We need to know when our elected officials take their election as permission to disregard their obligation to conduct the people's business in an open manner and as part of the public record.

Your Views: GHSA needs to level playing field in prep sports

You hear it all the time when you play Buford or Gainesville: "I just hope no one gets hurt."

Your Views: Americans need to be aware how our leadership is failing us

U.S. Rep. Allen Grayson of Florida compared the tea party to the KKK. I don't remember hearing anything about any tea party personnel hanging or beating any black folks, burning crosses or running around in white sheets.

Your Views: Gun shops near school raise concern

I am concerned about the opening of a new gun dealership very near Gainesville High School. From the door of the store to the GHS gymnasium measures about 900 feet. This new gun store is not the only gun store near GHS. If you go just a bit further down John Morrow Parkway, you will find another gun dealership.

Your Views: Cities learning convention sites often become bad investments

On Oct. 17, The Times wrote that Gainesville city officials are analyzing a proposal to fund a hotel and convention center that might possibly generate some jobs and revenue.

Your Views: Science backing climate change is tricky but valid

Re: "Science used...purely political," Friday's Times: The critic of Joan King's editorial claims that the "science" in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is "purely political." The latest report from the IPCC is not complete, but parts of it may be found at Internet sources, and I took the opportunity to look over it. It's actually pretty dense with scientific reporting, and fairly dispassionate. I found nothing to merit the charge of "political ... not scientific."

Your Views: There’s no denying how science describes global warming

The letter by W.T. Hinds in The Times on Friday cannot be permitted to stand unanswered. His inaccurate and distorted description of this year's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report is breathtaking.

Your Views: It’s easy to find ‘experts’ who will contradict science

From his Oct. 18 letter, W.T. Hinds' intelligence and education seem to be considerably higher but his prejudiced thinking and disdain for science are on a par with those of Rep. Paul Broun (regrettably from Georgia).

Your Views: Bicycle rules should be followed, and drivers should plan better

I attended the "tax the bikes" meeting Oct. 7. It was a fairly large crowd and I had to sit toward the rear of the room, so I wasn't able to hear everything being said. But there was a gentleman (I assume) not in favor of the attempt to register bicycles with a tax (or should we say a registration fee?) applied. He seemed to be making some favorable comments according to the crowd's reactions.

Your Views: Rape Response still is expanding services to help assault survivors

In December 1988, Rape Response opened its doors to offer help to survivors of sexual assault in Hall and Habersham counties. The service area now also includes Dawson, White and Lumpkin counties.
