I recently wrote a letter concerning the importance of Georgians contacting their representatives about the passage of Senate Bill 61 concerning Georgia manufacturing their own incandescent light bulbs. In this way, leaving the choice of what bulbs to purchase up to us, not to the federal government.
The Habersham Soup Kitchens Inc. would like to let readers know about the good kids we have in this area. Not only are a lot of them gracious and help volunteer for the feeding of our needy, but I must say that they have gone out of their way to be extra helpful with us in "feeding his sheep."
At the risk of sounding like a broken record and being dubbed a heartless, ignorant bible thumper my opinion regarding the Nov. 16 article "A hunger to help Ministry handout food in Gainesville" is prayerfully submitted.
An observation on the recent elections, not regarding the few open seats and city elections, but the Sunday sales issue:
Every year about this time, I wonder in amazement at how Christians go to such lengths and spend so much money on this holiday to celebrate the birth of their Savior.
The article "Hall changes grading scale" in Tuesday's Times reported on only one of two important issues discussed at the Hall County School Board meeting on Monday evening. The information about the change in the student grading scale approved by the board was thorough and accurate.

November is National Adoption Month. How appropriate as I am so very thankful for the blessings of my two adopted daughters!
Some time back, Barack Obama and his leftist, liberal friends and supporters made a strong case for toning down the hateful dialogue between his progressives and the conservatives in our nation. This, of course, has proved to be just another ploy by our "groveler in chief" to silence his critics, the American people.
There are some modern misconceptions surrounding one attending university that I would like to address.
In light of recent media coverage of the four alleged North Georgia terrorists, it's time to set the record straight on the meaning of "militia."
After living in a large city for several years it was unconceivable to me to think about living in a small town. However, on Veterans Day, God gave me the answer.
Where I live there is a police car that sits in the driveway of this house on the corner of the street. As I do not go out at night, I can only assume that the policeman that lives there is on the night shift.
Brenau University: Space is for lease in the old Liberty Mutual building at the corner of Browns Bridge and McEver. It seems the city of Gainesville already owns the building and it is unoccupied at the present time. You own it, use it. Just sayin'!
I understand that the Gainesville City Council is considering leasing the Georgia Mountains Center to Brenau University for additional school space. I strongly oppose this as do many other people since this will no longer provide a venue for entertainment (including our local talent) and community groups of all kinds. There is no other facility in the area for these events.
In response to Sunday's story in The Times, "Panel studying violence against emergency room workers:" We will never be able to properly address emergency department violence in America until we take a hard look at our ongoing mental health care crisis. This has led to violence in some cases by frustrated and distressed psychiatric patients who are held in emergency departments for long periods of time because there are very few options for long-term care.
I agree Mitt Romney was by far the best-prepared candidate for president; can't do it over.
The two global climate change deniers in the Oct. 1 Gainesville Times seem to have joined the Ostrich Club, composed of those who, like fabled ostrich behavior, stick their heads in symbolic sand to avoid grave realities.
Congress, please support and vote yes on both HB 4307 and 4308 that allows me access to raw, unpasteurized milk and milk products.

Thank you for supporting my rights and freedom to consume foods of my choice.
