Your Views: Pedestrian bridge offers a classic look

Judging by commentaries after your recent Times articles, absolutely no one has anything good to say about the just-opened bridge over Jesse Jewell Parkway. The bridge has actually become the local "joke" in many conversations when anyone mentions Gainesville.

Your Views: In reality, some are more free than others

It's important to get beyond various secondary arguments and focus on main principles. In talking with various people, both conservative and liberal, our core political debate comes down to two questions:

Your Views: Share your love for those gone and those still to come

A few weeks ago I walked into a local restaurant to have a quick brunch before I headed off to a meeting for work.

Your Views: Obama can’t tout his successes, so he merely goes on the attack

Have you noticed that the Democrats have quit touting Obamacare and have started badmouthing the Republican party, i.e., Mitt Romney and his Mormon religion?

Your Views: Better to keep libraries open later for students

I agree with Myra Meades' comments about cutting library hours affecting education. What Adrian Mixon apparently did not take into consideration is the fact that most of the students who use the library computers in the evening, probably can't afford them at home. A student today can't just bring home a book and do their homework like their parents did. Mine is a family who uses this service because we can't afford a home computer.

Your Views: Oil companies take advantage of consumers by raising gas prices

Wake up people! You want to get a start on fixing the economy, let's demand that we are no longer subjects of a kingdom run by oil companies. Gas just went up 39 cents in three days. Why? Because the media said it would; because the oil companies wanted it.

Your Views: Cutting Hall’s library funding hurts education

My first thought as I saw your Wednesday headline, "Library cuts hours, closes weekends" was: Where are our priorities?

Your Views: Take the time to make sure kids drive safely

Those first few years when our sons and daughters receive their drivers license can be a tense and prayerful time for parents every time they drive. We always hope they'll drive safely and come home alive, along with their friends.

Your Views: Medical center, insurance provider need to reach deal or patients lose

Like most North Georgians, I take pride and comfort in the excellence of Gainesville's hospital and doctors. And as part of a family covered by UnitedHealthCare are insurance, I enjoyed the security of knowing that the coverage we'd purchased would be there for us if the need arose.

Your Views: We need positive solutions, not more negative rhetoric

I found an answer to all the negative political ads:

Your Views: Support military budget cuts and bring American troops home

John Stossel's article in the Aug. 13 Times about wars being a waste is right on target, but he makes one premise which I find inexplicable. He points out that Mitt Romney is vehemently against the $500 billion cuts to the military proposed by President Barack Obama, and then states that defense is an area where he thinks the Democrats could make cuts in view of America's rapid path toward default, but also that Democrats "rarely cut anything."

Your Views: Voters, take time to do your duty and cast a ballot

I am writing not in support of any one candidate, but to urge every registered voter in Hall County to go to the polls and vote in the upcoming runoff and again in November.

Your Views: A return to respect, like in the ‘old days,’ is within our grasp

At 28 years old, use of the term "the old days" might imply to some that I'm referring to the early 2000s or the 1990s. I suppose they would be permitted to make that assumption according to my age.

Your Views: Voters must make right decision to get us out of debt

This coming November has got to be the most important election this nation has ever had.

Your Views: Is another traffic study needed?

I am puzzled that we, the taxpayers, are going to fork out $125,000 to complete a Gainesville and Hall County traffic study when one would think that the traffic studies completed prior the T-SPLOST referendum would be sufficient.

Your Views: Obama’s push for tyranny is a right-wing plan

Regarding Thomas Day's recent letter, I wonder if he expects readers to buy what he's selling. Day speaks of tyranny, saying President Barack Obama has "come closer to establishing tyranny in the United States than at any other time in our history."

Your Views: Addictive behavior can be turned into community service

I am an addict. I take all things I like to excess. I am now 45 years old and a full two seconds away from a bad decision, instead of one second like when I was younger.

Your views: More questions should be asked about moving Lanier Tech

Am I the only one that is shaking their head and asking "where did the idea come from to relocate Lanier Tech?"

Your Views: Smithgall’s support for the arts sets our community apart

Gainesville-Hall County, with the Northeast Georgia Medical System, is one of Georgia's prominent medical centers. With Lake Lanier, it is one of Georgia's prominent recreation hubs. With the poultry research laboratory and a high number of poultry industry businesses, it is one of the state's agricultural centers. With the changing seasons in the Gainesville section of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, the area will become a prominent center for celebrating spring, summer, fall and even winter.

Your Views: US government is held hostage by a tyranny of the minority

The recent celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Selma march was a wonderful event to remind us of the progress that has been made since that event. One unfortunate event was Jesse Jackson's comments decrying the tyranny of the majority over the minority. It is clear by his remarks that he neither understands the meaning of tyranny nor does he understand our form of government.

Your Views: Who’s going to fly our plane? Rice would be the ideal pilot

I know the souls of those who went down in the plane in France are in heaven, with the exception of one. Folks, we are also on the next plane heading the same way, only we have one thing in our favor: The door to the control cabin is open and desperately in need of a pilot.

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.
