County needs to focus on justice, not just low taxes

I wanted to attend the Hall County budget meetings but couldn't. This is what I would have said:

LGBT coalition shouldn’t force its agenda on the rest of us

The 2 percent, or less, of our population identified as LGBT are not being picked on. Rather, their bullying is being resisted. Nobody cares what other people are doing relationally in the privacy of their homes (no bomb building, please). We do care how our children are educated and about our Biblical values such as sanctity of marriage.

Charleston tragedy is a command to teach kindness

Last week, our country and our community received a command, not merely a call. We must reach deep inside our hearts and heads to find ways to reach people before they become unreachable, such as the young man responsible for the tremendous tragedy in Charleston.

Police deserve our respect, not scorn

Charles Sherwood is 150 percent correct! The police do a great job with dignity and professionalism. Someone should ask Joan King if she would look forward to going to a job where a crazy terrorist wanted to behead her just because of the color of the uniform she wore? Or where her life was on the line every second of every shift for relatively little pay? Or if there were no police and she had to fend for herself?

Your views: Times series shows we must work together

On behalf of the poultry industry here and across this great state, I want to thank and praise The Times for its special report last week and excellent examination of water quality issues in our community. The stories, authored by reporters Jeff Gill, Shannon Casas and Joshua Silavent, were well researched and written. They provided a comprehensive full picture understanding of the potential sources of pollutants in our drinking water from Lake Lanier and its feeder streams.

Your Views: Roosevelt Square doesn’t need fixing

The other day I read a small notice that our illustrious city council was considering "improving the square." I had lunch at the square the other day, sat outside and had a nice time just looking. I found the square looked very nice - nothing needs to be done.

Your Views: Instead of politicizing Jesus, why not just follow his way of living?

Just like the Roman emperor Constantine did 1800 years ago, the "powers that be" continue to politicize Jesus for their own personal gain. And Christians continue to be vulnerable. Traditional theology hasn't helped much.

Your Views: Corporations benefit us all by operating modern life

A few weeks back an environmentalist took exceptions to corporations. I wonder if these people know how vital corporations are in the U.S.A.

Police merely doing their job to keep us safe

In reference to Joan King's column of June 6: Dear Ms. King, I think I've figured you out! On one hand, life comprises hard cold facts. One the other hand, life is all emotional and emotion-laden judgement. Your columns are about judgments, based almost entirely upon emotion.

Suggestion to parents: Prepare kids for job market

I wanted to shed some light on something very tragic that needs to be addressed, not just by the institutions, but by the parents of students as well. I recently began helping a friend find a job here locally.
