Your Views: Candidates for president have little practical training for job

The current presidential debates put me in mind of the last Eisenhower-Kennedy transition meeting, Jan. 19, 1961. The emphasis of that meeting was Indochina. We do remember the ensuing, ill-fated Vietnam War do we not?

Your Views: Assist in the effort to save endangered hemlock trees

Feb. 26 to March 3 is National Invasive Species Awareness Week and a good time to highlight a particularly troublesome example: the hemlock woolly adelgid that is killing hemlocks from Maine to Georgia.

Your Views: GHS controversy an insult to what students achieved

I am perturbed to say the least of it. The issue of Cody Stephens and the decision for co-valedictorian is a asinine debate. Moreover, calling it a racial issue is a mockery to the proponents of civil rights.

Your Views: Wisdom failed us when US placed Obama in charge

Nations and people that forget history are doomed to repeat them. It seems to me that in our age of enlightenment, man has advanced greatly in the fields of education and technology to a level that was thought unreachable in times past. The sad fact, however, is that we have not achieved wisdom.

Your Views: Relationship of state to church like sun to moon

The separation of church and state is very much like the separation of the sun and moon. To describe it more appropriately, we really should rephrase our conversation to say the "relationship" between the two.

Your Views: The power of November belongs to us

Life cannot exist without freedom. For what is life without the ability to make choices and take chances? And then what better thing to do with that life that freedom grants you than to use it to ensure that it remains for all who seek it?

Your Views: Board should follow the rules in selecting GHS valedictorian

The Times article on the school board meeting the other night is a travesty to our community.

Your Views: Children’s Theater helps Lions raise funds for service projects

I would like to thank The Times for the article you ran concerning the Gainesville Lions Clubs Children's Theater in the Feb. 12 Good News section. It is our hope that the readers of The Times will answer the call and help us as we strive to serve our community.

Your Views: City schools get input from community on GHS award

As most of you likely know, GHS is experiencing a difficult issue in the selection of awards for the graduation ceremony.

Your Views: Use logic, action to fight problems that plague nation

As budget talks continue in Washington and across the U.S. for many of its states, I have to wonder if anything will ever be resolved. Will all of this talking and analysis, all of the in-fighting and bickering actually pay off?

Your Views: Church always has stood for sanctity of life

I very much would like to correct a gross error which was written in Joan King's last article Feb. 7. The Roman Catholic Church has never permitted abortion. St. John, Chrysostom, St. Basil the Great, St. Gregory the Great, indeed all the church fathers of the ancient undivided Catholic and Apostolic Church are unanimous in their condemnations of killing the human fetus.

All youngsters deserve to attend school- K-4 through college.

Turn away from distorted views of faith

Concerning Alan Shope's latest political-religious rant "Being good for good's sake is its own reward:" I am in no way, shape or form in agreement with any of his radical, distorted and possibly blasphemous religious views. However, in this latest article, I perceive he has failed to take advantage of an opportunity to point out the real truth of the matter.

Reliance on government can become a habit

How many times have you heard someone say "the government should do something about that?"

Your Views: Judge Jolliff has served well

I would like to tell Judge Cliff Jolliff how much I appreciate and respect him. Having been in his court a few times, I could see his main concern was the welfare of the children involved in all court cases. I could also see how difficult it was for him to deal with many difficult custody cases. I would not want to have that responsibility for any amount of money.

Your Views: Carson may be the healer nation needs

I have seen many decades roll by like a flash in my lifetime. As I reflect on them, I can't remember a time when we were in such dire need of leadership. If we continue to travel the road we are now traveling our destination is doom.

Your Views: Ice bucket challenges could do more harm in the long run

I saw the pictures in Tuesday's paper (Aug. 19) depicting Brenau University participating in the ALS ice bucket challenge. I was very upset to see this type of behavior being promoted as a fundraiser by ALS or Brenau.

Your Views: Columnist’s rant on hyphens might have cost him a reader

Re: Ruben Navarrette Jr. column in The Times on Tuesday: "Who's afraid of a little ol' hyphen?" Over elapsed time, I have considered this person's articles as relatively coherent. What happened?

Your Views: Who can pray? Everyone can

We shouldn't be told when and where we can pray. If a person doesn't like it, then they should stay home. We Christians also have our right to pray. God runs this world, not a few people who do not believe in God.

Your Views: Planning group seems a waste

Why do we have a Gainesville-Hall Metropolitan Planning Organization? Anyone should know you can't take funding from one road project to another. Does this group do anything to help get roads improved? I see this group as a waste of money and time.

Your Views: Prayers’ foes spark outrage, then a blessing

The flak over folks praying at Chestatee High School is one of those good news/bad news situations.

Your Views: Environmental groups trump up fears over energy

Was Bruce Vandiver's letter last week in The Times a scare tactic? I don't know. I do know that environmentalists often employ such tactics.

Your Views: Humanists have no place telling us who can pray

To Monica Miller of the American Humanist Association: As a resident of Hall County let me say that I am deeply offended by your organization's threat of legal action against Chestatee High School.

Your Views: Schools were safer when prayer was still allowed in classrooms

When I was a boy in my lower grades at Candler Elementary School on Candler Road, we said our blessing before leaving our classroom going to lunch. Every so often, these people would come to the school in the lunchroom, and Bible verses we learned we would be able to say and be rewarded with a book marker or sometimes a little Bible testament.

Your Views: Politics is still main obstacle to nuclear energy

What do we do about nuclear waste? Actually the answer is quite simple. The problem we most often run into with the high-grade questions, is political.

Your Views: Mexico should not apply a double standard on its borders

I read in your paper about the crisis on our border with Mexico. It is clear Mexico looks the other way when immigrants cross its southern border and enter the United States. I lived in south Texas for 20 years and their security is a joke. They are the most corrupt in the world.

Your Views: Humanist group’s threat over prayer is just a publicity stunt

Well, what do you know. It appears we have some more Madalyn Murray O'Hair wannabes. The American Humanist Organization of Washington, D.C., has threatened legal action against Chestatee High School to prevent high school coaches from leading and participating in prayer with the players.

Your Views: Visit to VA clinic was a positive experience

My annual visit to the VA facility in Lawrenceville prompted me to write this note about my treatment. This visit was the most professionally handled than I have ever received at a medical facility. My appointment time was right on the mark.

Your Views: We can’t allow spent nukes to be a new Chernobyl

In response to Rick Frommer's letter blaming South Carolina Democrats for failure of a private nuclear waste recycling venture at the U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River site, I don't think it matters which party controlled the state.
