Your Views: Editorial took oversimplified view of Deal’s budget policies

Re: Our Views, "A modest agenda," of Jan. 20: The first error I noted in this editorial was the authors of the editorial; is this a case of mistaken authority on the topic of politics? I could not obtain any information to prove that they were well versed and had authority to speak to the topic.

Your Views: Bible need not be perfect to inspire us

In response to a recent letter saying the Bible has no errors, please consider the following. St. Paul wrote, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness."

Your Views: No reason to denigrate Bible

Just when I thought I'd heard it all, I read Henry Loggins' opinion (Your Views, Feb. 8) regarding the King James Version of the Bible (a beautiful translation by the way). Silly me; for some reason I thought my eternal destiny was based on other criteria, like whether or not I believed in Jesus Christ.

Your Views: Version of Bible should offer God’s word, not man’s

I rarely respond in print to anything I read in the paper. However, Ronda Rich's recent column concerning the lady that chastised her for preferring the King James Version really caught my attention.

Your Views: Chambliss won’t be missed

Good to see Saxby Chambliss go. Just like most of Congress, he is useless. But he will have a good retirement paid for by We The People.

Your Views: More control over guns won’t stop criminals or end violence

On a recent editorial page, a writer asks: Why do they (gun owners) keep hiding behind the Second Amendment? The writer added that, when those words were written, our forefathers could not possibly have envisioned our world today.

Your Views: Constitution gives us right to bear arms, not a privilege

I read John Stockard's letter to the editor Wednesday with disappointment. Comparing our Second Amendment right to bear arms to getting a driver's license is just plain wrong. Owning guns and protecting ourselves is a right, not a privilege like driving.

Your Views: Chairman wrong to limit speaking time at meeting

Last Thursday, the Hall County Board of Commissioners convened. There was a large crowd there that night to voice opposition to a rezoning proposal. Twenty minutes was given to each side to speak.

Your Views: Some limits on gun ownership, training are within reason

Why do some gun owners come so completely unglued when you mention adding or changing gun controls? And why do they keep hiding behind the Second Amendment?

Your Views: Chambliss’ smear of Cleland in ’02 race remains unforgivable

So Sen. Saxby Chambliss has announced that he will not seek re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2014, citing "frustration" with partisan politics in Washington.

Your Views: Gun control ideas go against reality and Constitution

In recent days, there have been two letter writers who have expressed that the Second Amendment shouldn't be more important than the others and that semi-auto weapons and high capacity magazines should be banned.

Your Views: Gun rights were Founders’ guard against tyranny

In response to Jon Schwartz's letter concerning limitation of the Second Amendment, he, like many others, passed over the original intent of the amendment.

Your Views: Changing name of Friendship Road ignores its history

I am writing in reference to Monday's article about the idea of anyone wanting to change the name of Friendship Road. This road has history, with the Friendship Baptist Church being No. 1.

Your Views: Future sales tax votes should be on fall ballots

The front page headline Sunday in The Times read "Where have all the voters gone?" Let's go back just a few months to the fall of 2014 when midterm elections were in the news. Recall The Times writing about how politicians in Hall County were concerned that SPLOST VII would not be passed by voters for a seventh time if SPLOST VII was placed on the November 2014 ballot?

Your Views: Bullying is hurtful at any age, even when aimed at principal

I read with concern the two recent items in The Times regarding alleged bullying at Myers Elementary (March 7 article, March 19 letter to the editor). Quite honestly, I was confused; I thought perhaps I had read the name of the school incorrectly, and even more confused when I read the principal involved in the articles. I started shaking my head, thinking,"Are you kidding me? Are they really accusing Beth Hudgins of dealing improperly with a situation so potentially hurtful?"

Your Views: Myers Elementary principal is a ‘rare gem’ in handling students

I am writing in response to the article, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville" of March 7. It saddened me to read such negative words about Beth Hudgins.

Your Views: America should take care of its own needy first

I recently read in The Times, and I was not really surprised, what sweet idea America has now: Tens of thousands of immigrant children are allowed here, in the good old u.s.a. via Florida.

Your Views: Erasing the color line would make for a better world

Amidst the horror and grief of Selma and Ferguson, I heard a tender story that I would like to share with our readers.

Your Views: GOP senators need to stop spewing hate

Mary Drummer is right on about Georgia's senators being wrong to have sent a letter to Iran. They are certainly overstepping their place and proving once again that they, of the Republican party, are incapable of sensibly leading this country's government.

Your Views: Principal at Myers Elementary is qualified to keep bullying incidents in check

I am writing in response to the article from March 7, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville." As a parent of a child in elementary school, the subject is concerning to me. However, I am not worried at all because my child goes to Myers Elementary School. I'm not worried because I have 100 percent faith in my son's teacher and his principal to do the right thing for my child, and those in his class.

Your Views: Housing market still is pointed upward this year in Hall County

There have been some recent headlines about home sales falling. Those headlines are misleading. Housing sales look different from one month to another and from one quarter to another.

Your Views: Backers of tax vote should be truthful

If Hall County government/Chamber of Commerce/Hall Progress 2015 could be truthful about the SPLOST, the following is what they would say:

Your Views: Georgia senators wrong to bypass president with letter to Iran

Sens. Isakson and Perdue: As your constituent, I am writing to tell you how dismayed I am at your act of signing a letter to Iran, a foreign enemy country and its leaders, while our president is conducting diplomatic negotiations along with our allies to reduce, verify and contain Iran's nuclear program.

Your Views: Carbon tax plan is a win for the economy and for environment

While there are frequent conflicts between what is good for the environment and what is good for the economy, the carbon fee and dividend plan proposed by the Citizens Climate Lobby is a refreshing exception.

Your Views: Printed legal ads are still useful

The General Assembly considering removing legal ads from the legal county newspaper? No! Some folks don't have or can't use computers. Just cut out something on the useless list. Legal ads are on the useful list, I think.

Your Views: Sales tax will allow Hall County to widen Spout Springs Road

For many reasons, I am very much in favor of continuing the Hall County special purpose local option tax for another five years. But probably the biggest reason is that it would accomplish long overdue improvements for Spout Springs Road in my Flowery Branch community.

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.
