Your Views: Changing name of Friendship Road ignores its history

I am writing in reference to Monday's article about the idea of anyone wanting to change the name of Friendship Road. This road has history, with the Friendship Baptist Church being No. 1.

Your Views: Second Amendment isn’t all that special; it can, should be limited

Why are some constitutional amendments more important than others?

Your Views: Ban large-magazine weapons, then buy them for law officers

It is my hope that Congress will pass a law banning the civilian possession of any firearm that fires more than one bullet with one squeeze of the trigger. I hope this is what they mean when they talk about banning assault rifles. I do not need a gun that fires 900 bullets a minute to protect my home.

Your Views: Falcons have reason to be proud

We almost won the NFC Championship. That's not bad news. That's good news. Look, name another team with a better season record. You can't win them all. Our team is great with great things to come.

Your Views: Proper safety precautions can prevent deadly building fires

Remember Smokey the Bear's slogan, "Only you can prevent forest fires!" In the wake of a host of preventable building fires, including in the Greater Atlanta area, a school fire and a house fire which took four lives from the same family due to a surviving child having played with a lighter, it is very appropriate to add, "Only you can prevent building fires."

Your Views: Stranger’s kindness was appreciated

On Jan. 15, my cousins and I were having lunch. After finishing our meal, the waitress handed us our bill. As we began to pay, she said the bill had been paid by the gentleman sitting at the table next to us. We were overwhelmed, and our copy of the bill had a note from the gentleman that said "God Bless You."

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: UNG professor’s column adds to hostile rhetoric

After reading Douglas Young's guest column Monday, I have a few thoughts to share. Dr. Young once described his role as moderator of the Politically Incorrect Club at the Gainesville campus of the University of North Georgia as that of "devil's advocate." I wonder if this concept governs the tone of his recent article.

Your Views: When the world seems out of control, time to see divine help

The planet is just about to spin out of control, don't you think? And, riding on it, we and our country are not doing much of anything to bring it under control even if we could.

Your Views: New red light is not designed to ease traffic

Wal-Mart's new store on Thompson Bridge might have friendly words "Neighborhood Market" on its sign, but "Neighborhood Racket" would be a better name. A racket is an organized immoral activity for extortion; a dishonest scheme, trick, business or activity.

Your Views: A Memorial Day tribute: ‘Vessels’ made everything possible for us

To the families of military veterans, men and women from every branch of the United States military and Merchant Marines on whose shoulders we now stand tall: We pause to remember that they paid the ultimate price for our freedom in country, community and family, safety and security.

Your Views: Home-schooled students aren’t missing out on a great education

I thought someone might respond to Judy Manke's letter of May 2, but since I haven't seen a response, I feel compelled to provide one.

Your Views: Friendship Road work is frustrating, even if it’s a benefit in the long term

Ah, don't you just love the sights and sounds of spring? The dew on the ground, the trees and flowers budding, and the fresh morning air? What a way to start your day!

Your Views: Cure for deadly disease that kills on highways is within our reach

Can you imagine what this country would do if confronted with a disease that caused 32,000 deaths in 2013 and 450 deaths so far this year in Georgia? We would expect all levels of government to mobilize, demanding billions of dollars to find a cure and a plan for prevention.

Your Views: Traffic lights should not be placed to benefit a single business

It was sad to read about the recent installation of Wal-Mart's new traffic light on Thompson Bridge Road. One could infer from our mayor's comments that he held strong objections to the installation of Wal-Mart's light. Our city's traffic issues hold precedence with the Department of Transportation over private businesses regarding placement of traffic lights.

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.
