Your Views: Collins did not include public input in Camp Merrill decision

U.S. Rep. Doug Collins of the 9th District has explained his rationale for transferring Camp Merrill to the Army. But he does not explain why he thinks that this issue does not deserve proper public notice and review. He is violating the basic democratic principles he was elected to uphold.

Your Views: Americans must celebrate freedom with moral truths

True patriotism is a Christian virtue, a Christian principle. It involves a devoted love, support and defense of one's country. It is a national loyalty.

Your Views: Limited library hours a hassle

I went to the library today and found it did not open until noon. I waited over an hour for it to open; when it did, there was a long line of people waiting to get in. In the parking lot were several cars of employees working.

Your Views: Friendship Road change loses a vote

It has been a while since the Friendship Road name change was voted on and passed. I, for one, was very disappointed in Billy Powell's vote for this change.

Your Views: Shooting geese not the answer

Shame on Chestatee Golf Club and course superintendent Andrew Maronge for the decision to execute the resident geese rather than share the grass and put up with a little brown turf!

Your Views: One page for immigration bill is plenty

The comprehensive new immigration bill needs to be ONE page, not 800 or 1,000 or 1,200 pages of graft, pork, union payoffs and big government made bigger. It should be ONE page with ONE sentence: Enforce all immigration laws already enacted by the U.S. Congress.

Your Views: Cover-ups, expensive trips burden taxpayers

If any of you watch the news, you see the cover-ups our elected leaders are imposing on the American people.

Your Views: Increased costs for higher education bankrupt future

On July 1, interest rates for direct subsidized federal loans for college students (currently at 3.4 percent) are set to double to 6.8 percent if Congress neglects to act. As expected, there is political gridlock between the parties. While both openly do not want the interest rate hike to occur, they disagree over the approach to prevent it. Democrats want to keep the rate at 3.4 percent while Republicans want to tie it to Treasury bonds that would change the rate every year but also cap it at 8.5 percent.

Your Views: Don’t trash your home with TV

Turn off your TV. You have the power to remotely control television programming. You have the power to upgrade the quality of the television industry. Advertisers are not going to pay for darkened TV screens.

Your Views: McEver Road repairs should be a higher priority

I am curious to know how a main road like McEver Road can be closed for such an extended period of time? We live off Jim Crow Road so we have been taking the detour like everyone else since the heavy rains last month caused the washout.

Your Views: Evaluations of teachers should be centered on common criteria

I would like to respond to the letter published May 8 by Ron Walker about teacher evaluations being an art rather than a science. I feel a teacher should be evaluated to better determine their performance and, more importantly, their pay.

Your Views: Teachers need a seat at table in school decisions

I am sorry to read of our continuing budget woes in Monday's article about the Hall County Board of Education. The single, thin ray of sunshine is that Superintendent Will Schofield might include teachers in the decision-making process regarding teacher pay.

Your Views: Scandals make Obama no better than Republicans

Jim Gorman's recent letter finished with this thought: We the people are supposed to be in control of our government, not a political elite ruling class. I agree. I see a ruling class whose strategic interest differs radically from that of most Americans. I see a ruling class composed of Wall Street and the corporate establishment. We call this democracy, but it does not seem to serve our interests or our political will. Instead, it serves the will of an artificial person called the corporation.
