I live in Rabbittown, a small community with lots of woods but lots of homes.

Your Views: Officials turn ‘fees’ we pay into new ‘taxes’

I read with interest the article relating to Flowery Branch beautifying downtown that stated "bids came in under the grant amount, so the city scrambled to find other ways to use as much of the money as possible."

Your Views: Hired soldiers are put in difficult, violent situations in warfare

Thank you for the thoughtful editorial of March 18. I might have titled it, "What else could we expect?"

Your Views: Pastors, protesters play race card in Fla. shooting

Well, well, well. I see the race prostitute, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, was in Atlanta. It wasn't devastating enough for him that a family lost a loved one, so let's see why Mr. Jackson is really here besides what money he thinks he can make.

Your Views: Oppose regional government; say ‘no’ to transportation sales tax

While I'm in agreement transportation needs improvement, I am against the regional transportation sales tax for two reasons, mainly.

Your Views: Runaway federal power is what is wrong with US

Alan Shope in Oakwood wrote in his letter Friday, "The problem is no one knows for sure what is best." He was referring to the political climate in the U.S. right now.

Your Views: Cantrell's concert at St. John Baptist was uplifting and inspiring

The performance by Robert Cantrell and Friends at St. John Baptist Church here in Gainesville is still on my mind a day later. I expected a good performance, but I didn't expect to have my heart filled with joy, followed by deep gratification.

Your Views: Hall commissioners living in their own ‘Tale of Two Cities’

It was the best of times ... Recently we "celebrated" the near completion of the Nopone Community Complex. Nopone will enrich the lives of future generations of young learners, improve the health of an aging population and continue to benefit an economic recovery to an area in dire need.

Your Views: Exercise the right to vote earned by the lives of many Americans

When I woke up at 0-dark-hundred (4 a.m.) the morning of March 6 so I could open my polling place by 7 a.m. (poll workers have to be there at 6), I asked myself, "Why in the world are you doing this?" The answer came back in a flash, "Because I can!"

Your Views: Let’s resist negative talk, focus on ideas

I cannot recall a time in my 58 years when American society was so polarized and driven by fear and negativity. It's not just the Hannitys and O'Reillys of Fox News, but their liberal counter- parts on MSNBC.

Your Views: DOT could do more to help prevent many fatal accidents

Approximately three months ago, Patrick Kelley lost his life on Clarks Bridge Road just north of Honeysuckle Road, the site of several fatal accidents over the past several years. Subsequently, a DOT spokesperson stated the accident was under investigation and they would be looking at weather conditions, etc. and that it would be several months before the report would be available.

Your Views: Waiting on GHS honor might have headed off controversy

I personally think all this hassle over the Gainesville High valedictorian could have been avoided by waiting until the last two weeks of school. Who knows what can happen in three months? What was the rush? The school folks in charge of this should have waited.

Your Views: Road safety, not revenue, is goal of sheriff’s office

The Hall County Sheriff's Office would like to address an issue brought up in Sunday's article, "Traffic citations down in Hall County." Obviously, the article was written from revenue standpoint, but we would like the opportunity to expand on the more important issue it illuminates.

Your Views: Why vote for anti-immigrant bill if you don’t believe in it?

I would like to comment on the article in The Times this weekend regarding barring undocumented students from attending state supported universities. It was reported that Sen. Butch Miller expressed serious reservations about the legislation but yet felt he had no choice except to vote in favor of it. Why did he have no choice?

Your Views: Pitch in to help local Red Cross efforts in March

March is Red Cross Month in recognition of the work done by the American Red Cross in communities across the country and around the globe, and how we depend on public support to help people in need.

Your Views: TV show’s view of Appalachian South is hardly complimentary

While I don't usually read Ronda Rich's columns, I did on Oct. 7. The heading got my attention and I read on. She wrote about the TV series "Justified" and how good it is. While I agree that it's a great show and high on my favorites list, I am puzzled by some things she wrote about the Appalachian South. Not being familiar with her writings, I hope it was done tongue-in-cheek when she wrote, "But here's what 'Justified' does best: It gets the Appalachian South right without reducing us to mockery or ridicule."

Your Views: Hall school board needs to be aware of immunization dangers

To Hall County Board of Education: I am sure that you have been made aware by now of the recent announcement by Dr. William Thompson, formerly of the Centers for Disease Control and co-author of the study on immunizations and their link to autism. If you have not, what has come to light is that Dr. Thompson has publicly declared that the study and its findings were falsified. He has declared that the data was altered to make it appear as if there was no link.
