Your Views: Riverside coach helped soccer grow in county

Bob Leventhal died last week at the age of 88. With his passing, the sports community has lost a part of our soccer history and a friend.

Your Views: Background checks won’t mean much to someone breaking law

While the shootings in the school in Connecticut were a terrible catastrophe, the liberal news media is silent on the thousands of abortions preformed every year in this country. I guess those babies don't count.

Your Views: US citizens never could fully arm themselves against government forces

Reading letters on gun control published after the Sandy Hook school shooting, it appears conservatives blame that event on everything but guns. Some insist the Sandy Hook shooting can be attributed directly to legalized abortion, the elimination of prayer in school and teaching the theory of evolution as science. Then they speak out against liberals who would dare exploit this tragedy in order to serve a political agenda. How ironic.

Your Views: Only authoritarian governments want to disarm the populace

I wasn't going to weigh in on this one, but I can't help myself. There are too many reasonable people who are buying into the liberal lexicon.

Your Views: Americans must conquer fears, demand better

I often find myself wondering how the next chapter of our nation's history will read. Will it tell of a prosperous society, where the citizens embraced freedom? Or will it read like the final chapters of Gibbon's "The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire?" I pray the former but am given to the latter at the moment.

Your Views: Conservatives need to reassert control of broadcast media

How do conservatives get the broadcast media to hold this administration accountable?

Sheriff’s Office has enforced immigration program fairly

I am writing in response to an article in The Times on Sunday, "Feds' immigration program extended," regarding the Obama administration extending the federal 287(g) immigration program. Since the article focused on the opinions and misrepresentations of a local attorney and illegal immigrant advocate, I believe it is important to set the record straight.

Your Views: We can’t toss out Constitution on a hysterical whim

I want to communicate my position on expectations of our elected officials' responsibility to defend the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Your Views: Pray for those who clean up the water from Lake Lanier

I found the Jan. 7 article in The Times, "Church commemorates Epiphany" with a blessing of Lake Lanier somewhat interesting. However, in my opinion, attempts to bless Lake Lanier may be misdirected.

Your Views: Lives never led are a tragedy, harmful to US

Jan. 22 will be the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade. In this period some 55 million babies have been aborted. Abortion is like an evil, never-receding tsunami that has swept through our land, leaving in its wake enormous dissension and heartache. Unfortunately, in the next four years we will see a ramped-up version of this holocaust.

Your Views: Left exploits tragedy rather than focusing on moral decay

The senseless, insane killing of 20 innocent children and six adults in Newtown, Conn., is beyond our understanding. It violates every ethical and moral standard that we have held dear. Our hearts and sympathies go out to the victims families and the residents of Newtown.

Your Views: ‘Gun-free zones’ are an invitation to evil cowards

A terrible and senseless act was committed recently in Connecticut and many young lives were lost as a result. The "knee-jerk" reaction has been that we need to have more gun laws or more strict gun laws. That reaction is completely wrong.

Your Views: Millions for ‘special access’ to inauguration out of place today

After reading the article in Wednesday's Times, "$1M donations wanted for Obama inauguration," I am appalled and so angry. With our country in tremendous debt, Americans hungry and some homeless and Social Security being threatened, how dare President Barack Obama ask for $1 million to have parties? Why spend all this money on some parties?

Your Views: Someone is going to profit from any new laws to limit firearms

Vice President Joe Biden promises gun laws to change. Whether your for it or against it, you can be sure of two things.

Your Views: Gainesville fire, police prompt service is appreciated

Thank you, city of Gainesville. On the evening of Jan. 5, I received a home security call. I got home with two city police cars and a fire truck from Station 1. The police came to check on the motion alarm in my house, and when walking outside my home, they smelled gas.

Your Views: Would oysters survive if we left the Chattahoochee untouched?

I think I have a simple solution for the water wars. The ecology folks want everything left natural, as if man were not here.

Your Views: Shackling suspects in court implies guilt

Now I know why they say justice is blind. They see everyone as guilty until they can prove themselves innocent. People are brought into court shackled with two armed policemen with guns to watch them. That way everyone sees that person as guilty from the start.

Your Views: Clean Power Plan would help create a healthier environment

I live in a small mountain community in Northeast Georgia and I have been a physician for 43 years. It has become obvious to me that if we do not provide a healthy environment on our earth, future generations will suffer both economically and socially, and from severe medical problems.

Your Views: Protecting state’s forests should be top priority beyond Earth Day

It is easy to take forests in Georgia for granted. They are often viewed as natural gifts akin to the sun and the clouds, timeless and steadfast. But Georgia's forests have not been here forever, and they don't take care of themselves. As we pause on Earth Day to appreciate our environment, let's reflect on the many benefits provided by working forests, and resolve to confront the public policy threat they face.

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.
