Your Views: A better plan is needed to manage Lake Lanier water

As a homeowner on Lake Lanier and an Atlanta resident, I find the rapid decline in Lanier's level this year extremely frustrating. I am sympathetic to the corps' operating guidelines as it relates to our precious resource. The corps, like it or not, must supply water downstream to maintain water quality, navigational abilities and (gasp) protect endangered species. I do, however, see a lack of common sense being applied in many respects. Several major complaints come to mind every time I cross the river or look at my dock in Atlanta:

Your Views: President has failed to lead, fulfill promises

Mr. President: A lot of us aren't as foolish as the people who re-elected you. It's outrageous that you've been given a second term considering your abysmal record. Here are just a few examples:

Your Views: Banning firearms is the act of a tyrannical government

It mystifies me to no end to how blind and naive people in general and our leaders in Washington, in particular, can be on some issues. Take for example the supposed ban on small arms in America that so many want to impose on the American people.

Your Views: Guns aren’t the issue; shunning our religion is

I attended a public high school where students brought guns and ammunition to school and shot recreationally in the schools manual arts building over the noon hour and after classes were dismissed.

Your Views: Violent incident in Connecticut raises many vital questions

Having read and listened to lots of commentary this past weekend, our response to this tragic event should probably be a complicated "all of the above."

Your Views: President Obama should support lives of all innocent children

I read the full text of President Barack Obama's address at the vigil for Sandy Hook shooting victims, the little children and the teachers in Newtown, Conn. The speech was beautifully written and I'm sure heartfelt by the president who delivered it and brought comfort to all of us who have been affected by this.

Your Views: Finding scapegoats doesn’t change our political reality

On reading the Dec. 7 letter from Sharon Fowler, I see that recrimination and political hit pieces keep on coming from the angry right. The context of Fowler's letter seems to infer that people wanting free money and government handouts are the reason President Barack Obama was re-elected.

Your Views: There’s no longer a difference between the 2 political parties

What choice does a conservative Georgian have when it comes to representation in government? It seems that the two people that we elect as U.S. senators every six years to represent us at the federal level do nothing but enjoy their membership in the most exclusive social club on the planet.

Your Views: Congress should act quickly to save middle-class tax cuts

Taxes are going to rise on middle-class families in just a few weeks if Congress fails to act. Both Republicans and Democrats agree that taxes should remain low for 98 percent of all Americans, but Congress is refusing to pass this into law. Why? Because they are trying to extract continued tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.

Your views: Food stamps not given has little to do with Obama

I applied for food stamps more than a year ago with the local office. The request was for one person, myself. I revealed that I did have a roommate but that person did not share meals with me. My request for assistance for two people was denied. Duh! Nowhere did I ask for help for two.

Your Views: There’s no excuse not to prepare for natural disasters

After Sept. 11 and Hurricane Katrina, we have believed that every major city, every state and the federal government has a disaster relief plan in place to respond to emergencies that we have come to anticipate.

Your Views: Obesity plagues poor because healthier food is more costly

Clearly Sharon Fowler is unaware of the cause of obesity among the poor in our society. In many of the "poor" communities, grocery stores are not available, and fresh produce is nonexistent. Instead, calorie-laden food is available at a low cost.

The vision of Hall County promises that its residents will reside in "a model community that promotes sustainable quality of life by partnering with citizens and businesses to make a community of choice for living, working and leisure."
