Your Views: Incident with Hall jail escapee raises questions

Let me see if I have this right: An adult male in an orange prison jumpsuit with his hands handcuffed in front and restrained by a waist chain is able to hide in a doorway near the courthouse and nobody noticed him?

Your Views: Danger rises when mixing residential and industrial

Sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, hearing loss, contamination of soil, air and water causing various health ailments; these are factors that officials should consider before issuing Conditional Use Variances and special permits that allow industrial operations in or adjacent to residential areas.

Your Views: Traffic problems persist at Lanier Islands Parkway

Northbound Peachtree Industrial Boulevard at Lanier Islands Parkway is a nightmare. What was once two lanes northbound, with a right-turn lane and a left-turn lane, is now a single lane northbound with only a left-turn lane. Traffic flow through the area has turned into a single line of cars up to a half-mile long, forced to navigate a maze of orange construction barrels.

Your Views: Those pushing a racial agenda want US to fail

The events surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin and the trial of George Zimmerman have led me to a couple of conclusions that I think warrant some serious consideration by all Americans.

Your Views: Were police ignoring crime while helping locked-out gentleman?

The Joe B. Sartain Jr. letter printed July 17 was interesting but confusing to me concerning action of police that pleased Mr. Sartain.

Your Views: Profiling is a moot point when guilt can be determined

As a white male in a white culture, it is difficult, if not impossible, to understand what it feels like to experience profiling.

Your Views: Gainesville police respond quickly to a resident in need

On July 6, I let my wife out of my pickup truck at a local restaurant. The sky had opened up, and the rainfall was tremendous. I then drove to a parking space, opened the door and my umbrella, locked the door and stepped out.

Your Views: Hall fire crews, medical center came to rescue of injured visitor

I want to thank the Hall County Fire Department for carrying me out of Chicopee Woods on July 10. I was working with a crew from the Elachee Nature Science Center in the deep woods on a project. I was unable to get out on my own due to my injuries and was so grateful to see these guys.

Your Views: Our patriotic past should be celebrated

On Thursday, July 4, we had planned on attending a cookout and watching the fireworks. It was rained out. As a result, I watched the movie "Yankee Doodle Dandy," starring Jimmy Cagney.

Your Views: Brewer’s lifetime of dedicated service rises above one incident

I regret not having written this sooner in praise of Jim "Bimbo" Brewer, former witness advocate for Hall County Sheriff's Office. He's been splashed on front page again rehashing a small incident, albeit a momentary lack of judgment call, an instant decision to help someone while off duty. After his many years of dedicated service with an unblemished record, he was in his home, off duty, yet having to make an instant decision to go to the aid of folks needing him.

Your Views: Are we really that concerned about privacy anymore?

Right now we have a golden opportunity that we are rarely afforded by our gridlocked political system: A true, full, broad and deep national debate on what we want as far as a balance of security, privacy and convenience.

Your Views: Progress leads to pain for residents along Friendship

It has been a while since my emotions have been so stirred up I felt the need to write a letter. I get a sick feeling in my stomach the first five minutes of my morning commute and the last five minutes of my afternoon commute home. It's like the feeling I get when I drive through an area that has been swept by a tornado. In fact, for a while what I was seeing reminded me of just that. What I have been seeing is not an act of God but premeditated destruction, plain and simple. Homes and ...

My condolences go out to the Goldware family, whose 14-year-old was killed and two infants injured in a wreck on Interstate 75. May God comfort you in this time of grief.

Why can’t we disagree and still respect others’ views?

I have to admit, I'm bemused by the slogan that the homosexual lobby has adopted for its recent court victory, "Love wins." I'm confused because the most vocal proponents of same-sex marriage seem to be extremely un-loving as I understand love: "Love is patient, love is kind ... it keeps no record of wrongs ... Love bears all things, endures all things."

Removing Confederate flag an insult to Southern history

In response to the current controversy concerning the Confederate battle flag, I affirm that it is an insult to the memory of our ancestors and an affront to my culture and to Southern history, that this precious emblem be removed from public life. As a descendant of men who fought under that banner, I take it as an indictment of who I am that the flag should now be considered racist and indecent.

Let God be judge of morality, leave it out of our laws

I write in response to the letters of Paul Barnes and Duane Jones in your July 11 edition. They write of their opinion on the Supreme Court decision to do away with the law that made it illegal for gays and lesbians to wed.

Congress needs plan to rescue Social Security

Social Security and entitlement reform is an issue that will assure seniors that they will receive the benefits of hard work. Here in Northeast Georgia, we older Americans are watching closely what the U.S. Congress, especially U.S. Rep. Doug Collins and Sens. David Perdue and Johnny Isakson do to preserve Social Security this session.

Nation founded on faith has lost its way, led astray by its leaders

I believe it's obvious to most intelligent and observant people that Christians and our faith are under heavy persecution, not only in America, but on a worldwide scale never seen before. America is faced with an almost overwhelming tsunami of woes that it seems hopeless to even hope that we can overcome and prevail as a nation.

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.
