Your Views: Salvation Army fundraising effort a worthy cause for those in need

I'd like to commend the gentleman who planned to stand on top of Slack's to raise the $10,000 for the Salvation Army. I've always donated to the annual Christmas fundraiser and thanked the people who took time and effort to stand out in the cold or rain to ring the bells.

Your Views: Those outside of city don’t want extra taxes from annexation

The city of Gainesville is up to its same old dirty tricks. Its leaders failed in their scam annexation attempts a couple of years ago, and now they're trying again. They've shrewdly set their "public hearings" for times when impacted business owners cannot attend to look in their faces and register outrage publicly. The City Council also has done its very best to minimize awareness that meetings are even being held on Monday.

Your Views: System to elect mayor could help Gainesville grow

My expressed opinion from a recent newspaper article in The Times concerning the at-large voting process claim versus elected mayor and city form of government:

Your Views: Wrong vote cast would have been a despicable act

While I was casting my vote at the recent presidential election, I realized how easy it would have been for me to punch the wrong button and select the wrong candidate, and about the possibility of not being able to correct the error I had made and therefore, God forbid, my vote had counted.

Your Views: Election sends US away from freedom, closer to socialism

I have been grieving since the morning of Nov. 7. It is not because of the re-election of President Barack Obama. His election to another term of office is really insignificant in the big picture. His only legacy will be leaving the nation more racially divided than when he took office.

Your Views: Black Friday is out of hand, misses the true meaning of Christmas

When will it stop? Black Friday is carried into Saturday and maybe Sunday, too.

Your Views: Traffic backing up at trash sites

Every year about this time (holidays), the trash drop-off sites are busy. Often, vehicles are backed up, six or eight, waiting.

Your Views: Don’t let pundits paint a negative image of president

Another election has come and gone. The president is about to finish his first term in office and start his second. I woke up the day after the election, and imagine my surprise when the world had not come to an end.

Your Views: Some side with the rich though others have sacrificed so much

I cannot understand why anyone would vote for the Republican Party nominees because they trust in their money, and they don't care for people who don't have money. They clearly stated that 47 percent of the population was not profitable or any good. For America, is this the word of God or Christ Jesus? No.

Your Views: Nation is worse off for repeat of ’08 mistake

There is no way to know who reads the opinion submittals that The Times prints or how they think and what their level of knowledge is. The contributors to this section are "flying blind" but hope our efforts are well-received and possibly beneficial. Perhaps it may be appropriate to provide a very brief resume for the readers.

Your Views: Help with power bills is needed for many during hard times

It's a shame that people in our own town need help with different things, such as electric bills, medical bills and a lot more things. Sure, they offer help, but when they really need it, they're told no more funds are available.

Your Views: We all should be willing to speak up for what we believe

On the morning of Nov. 15, my husband called me on his way to work as he always does. That morning he had passed something he had never seen. At the intersection of U.S. 129 and Jesse Jewell Parkway was a man preaching, Bible in hand with a headset connected to a speaker.

Your Views: Weakened family, morality will lead to society’s downfall

Weaken the family unit and society will collapse. Over half of marriages end in divorce. One out of three pregnancies is aborted. Prescription drug facilities are flushing babies into sewers.

Your Views: Tourism industry can get creative to offset extra fee

I am a little disappointed in the article titled "New fee upsets tourism industry." The article itself was well written and worthy of the front page. However, the content of those interviewed and their titles was a little disturbing.

Your Views: Obama’s push for tyranny is a right-wing plan

Regarding Thomas Day's recent letter, I wonder if he expects readers to buy what he's selling. Day speaks of tyranny, saying President Barack Obama has "come closer to establishing tyranny in the United States than at any other time in our history."

Your Views: Addictive behavior can be turned into community service

I am an addict. I take all things I like to excess. I am now 45 years old and a full two seconds away from a bad decision, instead of one second like when I was younger.

Your views: More questions should be asked about moving Lanier Tech

Am I the only one that is shaking their head and asking "where did the idea come from to relocate Lanier Tech?"

Your Views: Smithgall’s support for the arts sets our community apart

Gainesville-Hall County, with the Northeast Georgia Medical System, is one of Georgia's prominent medical centers. With Lake Lanier, it is one of Georgia's prominent recreation hubs. With the poultry research laboratory and a high number of poultry industry businesses, it is one of the state's agricultural centers. With the changing seasons in the Gainesville section of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, the area will become a prominent center for celebrating spring, summer, fall and even winter.

Your Views: US government is held hostage by a tyranny of the minority

The recent celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Selma march was a wonderful event to remind us of the progress that has been made since that event. One unfortunate event was Jesse Jackson's comments decrying the tyranny of the majority over the minority. It is clear by his remarks that he neither understands the meaning of tyranny nor does he understand our form of government.

Your Views: Who’s going to fly our plane? Rice would be the ideal pilot

I know the souls of those who went down in the plane in France are in heaven, with the exception of one. Folks, we are also on the next plane heading the same way, only we have one thing in our favor: The door to the control cabin is open and desperately in need of a pilot.

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.
