Your Views: Help with power bills is needed for many during hard times

It's a shame that people in our own town need help with different things, such as electric bills, medical bills and a lot more things. Sure, they offer help, but when they really need it, they're told no more funds are available.

Your Views: We all should be willing to speak up for what we believe

On the morning of Nov. 15, my husband called me on his way to work as he always does. That morning he had passed something he had never seen. At the intersection of U.S. 129 and Jesse Jewell Parkway was a man preaching, Bible in hand with a headset connected to a speaker.

Your Views: Weakened family, morality will lead to society’s downfall

Weaken the family unit and society will collapse. Over half of marriages end in divorce. One out of three pregnancies is aborted. Prescription drug facilities are flushing babies into sewers.

Your Views: Foreign markets are crucial, yet also undesirable

Bruce Vandiver's view of how the U.S. economy works (Your Views, Wednesday) is too limited. We are involved all over the world because we need foreign markets in which to sell our goods. In spring 2011, the head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was on cable news saying that we need to export 95 percent of what we produce in this country in order to maintain our economy.

Your Views: Denying climate change burdens future generations

Kudos go to The Times' Viewpoint section on Sunday for at least asking whether global climate change should have been an election issue. Brickbats go to Amy Ridenour for dismissing the need to even discuss that vital issue, particularly in the wake of unprecedented wildfires and Hurricane Sandy.

Your Views: Story on 1936 tornado tragedy was disrespectful to its victims

Our family is very pleased that a historical marker will be placed in Gainesville to honor the ladies who worked and so bravely gave their lives in the tragic Cooper Pants Factory fire during the 1936 tornado.

Your Views: Focus on social issues won’t fix economic woes

Like many Americans who wanted change in 2008, I and many others wanted change in 2012. It is obvious now that we will not receive that change.

Your Views: ‘Be the people’ letter inspires

Thank you, Candice Pinzon, so very much for your words of wisdom on the Nov. 9 Opinion page. If everyone would "be the people" as you suggest, this world would be a better place to live for all of "U.S." (United States, especially).

Your Views: Vietnam Wall memorial is a moving tribute

I went off to Washington to see all the sights I could see. I didn't plan to stay long; I didn't know how long I would be. I got a ride with a guide. He said he could show me all the sites, and for $30, I felt that was about right.

Your Views: If Obama leads nation to pray, then re-election will be worth it

Nov. 6 has come and gone, and President Barack Obama has been re-elected for the next four years. And yet I see no singing or dancing in the streets. For the most part, it appears that the anticipated joy and happiness that was suppose to result in his re-election has been replaced by grievous disappointment and gloom and doom rhetoric.

Your Views: It’s time to stop pointing fingers, unite for our nation

Since the Nov. 6 election, I've heard lots of conservatives throwing tantrums and behaving like spoiled children.

Your Views: Obama voters, don’t cry when your jobs go overseas

Four more years of the same old, same old, except you will see rising taxes, gas prices, food prices and consumer goods prices. There is no sense in stressing out over this debacle since the majority must like socialism and a welfare state like the Soviet Union.

Your Views: With election over, leaders must unite for common good

President Barack Obama was re-elected and would hope that our national, state and local elected leaders would accept this historic fact as a second opportunity to help bring our country together and work for the common good of all of the American people.

Your Views: Better nutrition for children now means a healthier military later

As we remember the many sacrifices of our military this Veterans Day, we should also consider the upcoming generation and what our nation can do to help ensure our long-term national security.

Your Views: Americans, it's time to unite and ‘be the people’ again

Recently, I was at the National Archives and saw the hand-printed documents our country was founded upon. I cannot describe to you the emotion, the sense of honor and respect, the call to duty that seeing those frail papers firsthand produces in each and every heart.
