Your Views: White House, Holder — Pants on fire

How does the nursery rhyme go? "Liar, liar, pants on fire."

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.

Your Views: Benefits of T-SPLOST outweigh the alternatives

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: Pants factory site should be preserved

I agree with Garland Reynolds that the old Cooper Pants site should be looked into further before completion of the city's project.

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: Humanist group’s threat over prayer is just a publicity stunt

Well, what do you know. It appears we have some more Madalyn Murray O'Hair wannabes. The American Humanist Organization of Washington, D.C., has threatened legal action against Chestatee High School to prevent high school coaches from leading and participating in prayer with the players.
