Your Views: Our children should not aim to achieve only the minimum

As a teacher, I find the president's call for an increase in the federal minimum wage to $9 per hour particularly worrisome. As we increase the amount that businesses are minimally required to pay their employees, we place more and more value on the types of jobs to which those wages are attached. We also increase the emphasis on the idea of the minimum.

Your Views: State’s new car title fee indeed needs ‘tweaking’ to make it fair

Several weeks ago, an article in The Times mentioned that the new "birthday tax" law was due for some "tweaking." I assumed this was to account for the fact that the law was passed in such a rush that several issues were left unclear or unfair.

Your Views: New university’s identity is all about North Ga., not Gainesville

I writing you because I attend Gainesville State College and, as you know, North Georgia College and State University and Gainesville State consolidated to become a new university. I feel that this was a merger, not a consolidation.

Your Views: US federal government is overstepping Constitution

I can still remember when living your life based upon Biblical principles, being kind by helping others, holding the door open for someone about to enter, giving a little money to charities that try to save lives not destroy them, pay your taxes on time, work to earn your income, all would label you a model citizen.

Your Views: Nation needs a new effort to restore morality

I have been a hunter since my teens and have fired weapons from a BB gun to a 155 mm Howitzer. I am, and always will be, a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Your Views: Hall County comes up short in its dealings with Gainesville

Given the current state of affairs with the city of Gainesville, why would Hall County even consider allowing the city to provide sewer services. It seems every time Hall County enters an agreement with Gainesville, the county comes out on the short end of the stick.

Your Views: Rising debt is increasing the burden on US taxpayers

As the national debt continues to rise and exceeds $16.5 trillion, the interest paid by taxpayers is also going up. In 2012, taxpayers paid $220 billion in interest on the national debt. The U.S. has carried a debt throughout history so it may not seem important to many people.

Your Views: Editorial took oversimplified view of Deal’s budget policies

Re: Our Views, "A modest agenda," of Jan. 20: The first error I noted in this editorial was the authors of the editorial; is this a case of mistaken authority on the topic of politics? I could not obtain any information to prove that they were well versed and had authority to speak to the topic.

Your Views: Bible need not be perfect to inspire us

In response to a recent letter saying the Bible has no errors, please consider the following. St. Paul wrote, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness."

Your Views: No reason to denigrate Bible

Just when I thought I'd heard it all, I read Henry Loggins' opinion (Your Views, Feb. 8) regarding the King James Version of the Bible (a beautiful translation by the way). Silly me; for some reason I thought my eternal destiny was based on other criteria, like whether or not I believed in Jesus Christ.

Your Views: Version of Bible should offer God’s word, not man’s

I rarely respond in print to anything I read in the paper. However, Ronda Rich's recent column concerning the lady that chastised her for preferring the King James Version really caught my attention.

Your Views: Chambliss won’t be missed

Good to see Saxby Chambliss go. Just like most of Congress, he is useless. But he will have a good retirement paid for by We The People.

Your Views: More control over guns won’t stop criminals or end violence

On a recent editorial page, a writer asks: Why do they (gun owners) keep hiding behind the Second Amendment? The writer added that, when those words were written, our forefathers could not possibly have envisioned our world today.

Your Views: Constitution gives us right to bear arms, not a privilege

I read John Stockard's letter to the editor Wednesday with disappointment. Comparing our Second Amendment right to bear arms to getting a driver's license is just plain wrong. Owning guns and protecting ourselves is a right, not a privilege like driving.

Your Views: Chairman wrong to limit speaking time at meeting

Last Thursday, the Hall County Board of Commissioners convened. There was a large crowd there that night to voice opposition to a rezoning proposal. Twenty minutes was given to each side to speak.
