Your Views: Nation is in decline as it turns away from our Christian values

Well, it's almost Christmas again and it's supposed to be a happy time of year. It's meant to be a time to focus on the one it's really all about, our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

Your Views: Learn more about life by escaping comfort zone of your small town

Life in a small town is great for a while. Many of us grow up in the comfort of a small town where we all gather on Friday nights to cheer on the local football team and go to church on Sunday mornings.

Your Views: Lula Christmas parade was topped by a glorious full moon

In spite of rain and clouds on a recent Saturday, our city of Lula, as well as other towns in the area, was busy preparing annual Christmas celebration festivities on Dec. 6. Our mayor and council had voted to purchase new (and much needed) Christmas lights and decorations for the town.

Your Views: Shoppers, please mind your manners and think of others

OK, this is crazy. It's Christmas shopping time and no one cares who they run over with their carts! My mother is 95 years old and when a female heard the words, "I can take someone over here," this person was like a race horse and bumped my mother's cart. But at least she got to be first in line!

Your Views: Schools can’t let atheist groups run our lives

On Wednesday, I read about the humanist group suing Hall County Schools over prayers. The complainants were listed as Jane Doe, Jane Roe and Jane Coe due to the fact identification posed a risk.

Your Views: If prayers are removed from schools, it should apply to Islam

I tend to agree with the humanist group to remove prayer in school. Likewise, then schools will be compelled to remove all the Five Pillars of Islam in Common Core.

Your Views: The real ‘War on Christmas’ is waged against poor Jesus served

This time of year we begin hearing about the "War on Christmas," as the nonreligious seek to enforce the constitutional separation between church and state. Others talk about a "War on Thanksgiving" as early shopping begins to infringe on family time and Thanksgiving time. But there's another war far more displeasing to God, at least according to Jesus.

Your Views: Area restaurants applauded for providing free meals to veterans

Many thanks should be extended to all the local restaurants who provided free dinners to veterans on Veterans Day. Such a positive, supportive attitude only serves to strengthen the community and the country. A week later, I was impressed to see a restaurant in Buford extend the honor by providing literally hundreds of free dinners to local veterans.

Your Views: Health care works fine without federal government in the way

This is in response to Joan King's recent attempt to display her superior wisdom. I thought her forte was climate change, but now she's scolding us all for not embracing President Barack Obama's nightmare health care plan. Where's she been this past year?

Your Views: Columnist misread how US voters feel

Reply to Clarence Lusane column of Nov. 11: He is correct when he says the election was not a mandate for a Republican agenda. I disagree that it happened because of a "pervasive anti-Obama drumbeat" or "incessant Republican pounding." It happened because the American people are mad.

Your Views: Reverse brain drain; send immigrants back home

According to President Barack Obama, the citizens of the United States are not exceptional. Also, he claims we are no better than any other country on this planet.

Your Views: Law enforcement needs to clamp down on teen speeders

I have a 16-acre sheep farm on Coker Road. One recent evening, a 16-year-old boy hit my fence driving 80 mph, as he told police. He and his friend, who was also 16, were going home from East Hall High School.

Your Views: Humankind is hardly perfect in its rebellion

I write this letter to pose further understanding after Tuesday's column by Joan King. Ms. King is a thoughtful and generally cogent writer. I read her column faithfully and remain in strong respect for her consistent revelations concerning the ongoing corruption in our nuclear plant construction process.

Your Views: Staff at assisted living facility responds well to frozen pipes

I am the director of nursing for Homestead Hospice of Athens and we have patients who are residents at Summers Landing Assisted living facility in Gainesville. It was a complete coincidence that I was visiting the facility at the exact moment that some frozen pipes in the ceiling burst Jan. 8. I wanted to write a letter to the editor in attempt to recognize the staff of Summers Landing. They happened to be having a staff meeting at the same time and that meant there were more employees in the building than usual.

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.
