Your Views: Cherokee Bluffs name for new park should be chiseled in stone

Because my family had other commitments April 15, we didn't get to the public meeting at Mulbury Park concerning Cherokee Bluffs. I wish we could have been there.

Your Views: Red Rabbit buses are a bad deal for county taxpayers

Here are 10 reasons Hall County taxpayer involvement with the Red Rabbit is a bad idea:

Your Views: Mayors, most Americans favor background checks for gun purchases

In response to Fred Dissen's letter Tuesday ("Pro-gun TV ads cross the line"): So you are pro-gun. You are mistaken about the "out-of-state-funded TV gun commercials" attacking our Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson. The ads are to show that people who support the Second Amendment also support stronger gun control and ask that they contact these senators to express their views.

Your Views: Brenau tiger sculpture a beauty

I would like to commend the artist and Mr. Belk for the beautiful lady that now lies in repose at the corner of Green and Academy streets. She looks like she is "at home."

Your Views: Legislators failed to protect us by expanding gun rights

Now that our state legislators have let the 2013 session end without managing to agree on vital corrections in our gun laws, I hope they can sleep at night after the next campus robbery turns into a murder or an entire church congregation is similarly victimized.

Your Views: Columnists' bashing of Graham is arrogant

I couldn't help but respond to Joan King's bashing of Dr. Billy Graham. She is right to call herself "arrogant." Evidently she doesn't understand God's word, or doesn't read the word of God.

Your Views: Pro-gun TV ads cross the line

I have always been pro-gun, but, those out-of-state-funded TV gun commercials attacking Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isaakson have altered my thinking about the need for Congress to control people's access to weapons.

Your Views: Lobbyists’ gifts to lawmakers are all but bribes

According to Shakespeare's Juliet, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Likewise, a bribe by any other name still stinks like a pigpen.

Your Views: Many local church members do make an effort to offer comfort

I read with interest Suzanne Ivey's recent letter to the editor about Meals on Wheels and the elderly. Her question was "Where are the churches?"

Your Views: Why are federal agencies busy stocking up on weapons, ammo?

While attempting to disarm U.S. citizens, our government is arming itself to the teeth: At least 73 federal agencies have their own private armies here in the U.S., including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries Office, the Department of Education, the Food and Drug Administration, the Inspector General's office of the Department of Agriculture, the Bureau of Land Management, the Library of Congress and Veterans Affairs.

Your Views: Churches should do their part to provide company to elderly

While it was wonderful to read in this week's Times that Meals On Wheels has caught up with its waiting list, part of the story saddened me. When I read that "for people like (the widower featured in the story), the brief visit and chat may be the only human interaction he has in a day," I couldn't help but wonder: Where are the churches?

Your Views: Right to bear arms meant for people, not state

Jim Scharnagel's March 20 letter on the Second Amendment is a typical interpretation of that document by current liberal dogma. His final statement is a fair summation of his feelings. "While acknowledging that firearms such as sporting rifles and shotguns for hunting, and within reason, certain weapons for self-protection should be allowed, such rights were not addressed by the Second Amendment but rather a right to keep and bear arms for security of the state."

Your Views: 2nd Amendment was meant for militias, who are armed civilians

Your Views: Scientific data back the idea that humans cause climate change

I am both insulted and amused by my inclusion in the "vacuous political and pseudo-science class" and, regretfully, I have not participated in colloquiums sponsored by MENSA, a vacuous pseudo-science class if ever there was one. However, the scientific debate over global warming should not be trivialized and the gross misstatements printed need to be corrected.

Your Views: 2nd Amendment aims to protect us from government

In his letter "Second Amendment was meant for militias, not armed civilians," Jim Scharnagel makes the case that the Second Amendment was never intended to allow private ownership of firearms. While I agree with some of his points, the overarching theme is not one of them.
