Your Views: Think of transportation sales tax as an investment in our success

Everyone tends to think of T-SPLOST as an innovative way to pay for roads. I see it differently.

Your Views: Local voters have control over fixing traffic ails, unsafe roads

As a lifelong conservative, it is hard for me to support any tax increase. But as a lifelong resident of southern Hall County, I wholeheartedly support the 1-cent T-SPLOST to fund new transportation projects and improvements.

Your Views: Roads sales tax would provide a strong return on our investment

I am going to vote yes for the T-SPLOST transportation referendum on July 31. After evaluating the pros and cons of the referendum, I am convinced that we have more to gain than to lose by passing this legislation. More important to me, however, is the fact that my grandchildren will be assured of a better quality of life.

Your Views: Liberal religious views allow for more tolerance, compassion

Two recent articles in The Times showed the sharp contrast between liberal and conservative world views. As President Barack Obama recently noted, November's election may be a referendum on this debate.

Nobody likes to pay taxes, but let's think about our options if we don't enact the transportation tax, or T-SPLOST, on July 31.

Your Views: It’s time we all cracked down on texting behind the wheel

Your June 10 article addressing the problem of texting while driving followed up a discussion of that issue my husband and I were having that day as we drove through Hall and Gwinnett counties. And it certainly is a growing problem among not only teens but adults as well.

Your Views: Too many voters factor in race when supporting Obama

I was raised in the North by parents who taught me that I was neither inferior or superior to anyone because of color, religion or heritage. I was taught to work for what I wanted and to be the best that I could be. A Christmas decoration that my mother put up every year read, "What you are is God's gift to you. What you make of yourself is your gift to Him."

Your Views: Gainesville could fill airport void

Since Gwinnett voted down commercial flights from Lawrenceville it would appear to be an excellent opportunity for Gainesville to establish a feeder line to Atlanta and/or commercial flights from our local airport.

Your Views: Choose wisely among candidates for Hall sheriff

There are several positions that are being contested in the upcoming election cycle but none may be as important as the sheriff race! The Hall County Sheriff Department performs four major functions; jail, court services, patrol and investigations.

Your Views: Without passing road sales tax, our region could fall behind

On July 31, residents will vote region by region across Georgia on whether to approve a 1 percent transportation tax to pay for road construction and maintenance. That means one pro-tax region may get the future benefits while another region gets nothing, all depending on how each one of us votes.

Your Views: Sitting in traffic? A good time to back T-SPLOST

If you haven't spent time studying the details behind the proposed transportation SPLOST, you might think this vote is only about paying extra in taxes. Well, it is and it isn't.

Your Views: Article on Holmes’ Memorial Day speech was slanted against war

The May 27 article on the Memorial Day speech by Oliver Wendell Holmes in 1895 was badly slanted. The writer lifted quotes to make Holmes' message completely different than he intended.

Your Views: Obama listens to radicals while he fails to defend real heroes

It's become clear to me, if not to many others, the hypocrisy of our president and his entire administration.

Your Views: Government reform is needed to limit spending

There has recently been talk of how to properly reform Washington and the nation. For several years, my friends and I have discussed how to better our political situation, and the following is the plan we developed.

Your Views: Violence in ER is directly linked to a lack of mental health care

In response to Sunday's story in The Times, "Panel studying violence against emergency room workers:" We will never be able to properly address emergency department violence in America until we take a hard look at our ongoing mental health care crisis. This has led to violence in some cases by frustrated and distressed psychiatric patients who are held in emergency departments for long periods of time because there are very few options for long-term care.

Your Views: Climate change deniers fail to grasp true threat

The two global climate change deniers in the Oct. 1 Gainesville Times seem to have joined the Ostrich Club, composed of those who, like fabled ostrich behavior, stick their heads in symbolic sand to avoid grave realities.

Your Views: Congress should support right to consume raw milk products

Congress, please support and vote yes on both HB 4307 and 4308 that allows me access to raw, unpasteurized milk and milk products. Access and consumption of healthy organic whole foods leads to healthy bodies and less need for medical treatment due to disease. Thank you for supporting my rights and freedom to consume foods of my choice.
