Your Views: Falcons stadium plan could lead to legalized gambling in future

Your Views: Majority of scientists believe global warming is genuine

Jim Gorman claimed, in a March 19 letter in The Times, that he has researched climate change and written articles on the subject. His conclusion: "There is not one shred of genuine scientific data that proves the theory of global warming. Nor is there consensus in the scientific community."

Your Views: Gun laws can’t protect us from insane killers

This is in response to Jim Scharnagel's letter from March 20 about the Second Amendment being meant for militias and not armed civilians.

Your Views: Second Amendment was meant for militias, not armed civilians

The National Rifle Association falls back on the Second Amendment as justification for owning firearms. This is an anachronism that has persisted from the framing of the Constitution up through the present.

Your Views: Biggest danger from high CO2 levels is political

I am so tired of my intelligence being insulted by the vacuous political and pseudo-science class. For the claims of the global warming cabal to be true, thinking people must put aside all common sense. The premise of the global warming theory is that carbon dioxide is a dangerous gas.

Your Views: Better lighting on boats would boost lake safety

I have been a boater since age 14. Now 66, I have seen just about everything that can happen while boating.

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

Hello, my name is "Fred Gov" and some of the people I work with are saying my financial situation is in trouble. Others say I am fine. Anyway here is my situation.

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: Would oysters survive if we left the Chattahoochee untouched?

I think I have a simple solution for the water wars. The ecology folks want everything left natural, as if man were not here.

Your Views: Shackling suspects in court implies guilt

Now I know why they say justice is blind. They see everyone as guilty until they can prove themselves innocent. People are brought into court shackled with two armed policemen with guns to watch them. That way everyone sees that person as guilty from the start.

Your Views: Clean Power Plan would help create a healthier environment

I live in a small mountain community in Northeast Georgia and I have been a physician for 43 years. It has become obvious to me that if we do not provide a healthy environment on our earth, future generations will suffer both economically and socially, and from severe medical problems.

Your Views: Protecting state’s forests should be top priority beyond Earth Day

It is easy to take forests in Georgia for granted. They are often viewed as natural gifts akin to the sun and the clouds, timeless and steadfast. But Georgia's forests have not been here forever, and they don't take care of themselves. As we pause on Earth Day to appreciate our environment, let's reflect on the many benefits provided by working forests, and resolve to confront the public policy threat they face.

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.
