Your Views: Presidential race is going to the dogs right from the start

During the race for the White House, the candidates seem to be picking on each other. President Barack Obama got his chance when Gov. Mitt Romney let everyone know that he put his dog in a cage and rode him on the top of the car one day. He said the dog liked it!

Your Views: Travel teams make competition unfair in Hall County leagues

Your Views: Right wingers pull GOP down the wrong path

The GOP moderates have (quietly) spoken. Rick Santorum is out, Newt Gingrich is bankrupt and the party is not conservative.

Your Views: Relay for Life event helps local effort in fight against cancer

Just as the effects of a challenging economy are felt by families in every community, cancer, too, has a far-reaching impact.

Your Views: Americans still divided despite our best efforts

Regarding the March 28 letter, "Pastors, protesters play race card in Fla. shooting" by Paul Barnes: Some of the information appears to be truthful. However, in my opinion, he has failed to grasp the true significance of this unfortunate incident.

Your Views: Racism and ignorance doubled with street patrols in Florida

Ignorance plus ignorance equals trouble. You may think I am talking about politicians; it does fit. But in this case, I'm referring to the neo-Nazi gang that calls themselves the National Socialist Movement patrolling the streets in Sanford, Fla.

Your Views: T-SPLOST may be when Georgians say ‘that’s enough’

In the beginning, Georgia had a 3 percent sales tax with food exempted. One day, the Ultimate Power that controls the state of Georgia said, "I need more," and soon Georgia counties were allowed a local option sales tax. The LOST was sold as a reduction in property taxes. The state kept 3 percent of the collections.

Your Views: ACF group has not yet taken a stance on Glades Reservoir

In the March 24 article, "Glades Reservoir creates ripples downstream," some readers may have received the impression that Dave McLain, who stated his opposition to the Glades Reservoir, was speaking on behalf of the ACF Stakeholders Inc., an organization made up of representatives from the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint sub-basins of the entire ACF watershed.

Your Views: Don’t be too good to pick up trash

I pick up litter (recycling actually). Most any day in Clermont, I can be found trucking around the town with my plastic bags and my dog picking up plastic bottles and cans, and I have learned a few things about our culture by doing so.

Your Views: No one should force prayers on anyone else

With the holiday season, especially Christmas, the news fills with stories about threats to our most sacred religious values, Christmas and prayer in school. Two recent letters published in The Times touch on these subjects.

Your Views: Global ‘warming’ is looking pretty cold so far this winter

Has anyone noticed that record-breaking temperatures are taking place all over the country, including Georgia? New York recently was under a blanket of snow, as much as 9 feet in places. Schools and businesses were closed and even the Buffalo Bills football game was moved in only the third week in November.

Your Views: Let’s remember joys of Christmas past, not just gifts

It's Christmas. It's the end of the year. That time of year where everyone is enjoying the holiday festivities and winding down from their busy lives. It's a time for joy, for peace, for happiness, for forgiveness and for kindness.

Your Views: Nation is in decline as it turns away from our Christian values

Well, it's almost Christmas again and it's supposed to be a happy time of year. It's meant to be a time to focus on the one it's really all about, our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

Your Views: Learn more about life by escaping comfort zone of your small town

Life in a small town is great for a while. Many of us grow up in the comfort of a small town where we all gather on Friday nights to cheer on the local football team and go to church on Sunday mornings.

Your Views: Lula Christmas parade was topped by a glorious full moon

In spite of rain and clouds on a recent Saturday, our city of Lula, as well as other towns in the area, was busy preparing annual Christmas celebration festivities on Dec. 6. Our mayor and council had voted to purchase new (and much needed) Christmas lights and decorations for the town.

Your Views: Shoppers, please mind your manners and think of others

OK, this is crazy. It's Christmas shopping time and no one cares who they run over with their carts! My mother is 95 years old and when a female heard the words, "I can take someone over here," this person was like a race horse and bumped my mother's cart. But at least she got to be first in line!

Your Views: Schools can’t let atheist groups run our lives

On Wednesday, I read about the humanist group suing Hall County Schools over prayers. The complainants were listed as Jane Doe, Jane Roe and Jane Coe due to the fact identification posed a risk.

Your Views: Our nation always has been based on Christian ideals

Wednesday, I read in the paper that this group called the humanists have filed a lawsuit against the Hall County School District for promoting prayer and Christianity.

Your Views: If prayers are removed from schools, it should apply to Islam

I tend to agree with the humanist group to remove prayer in school. Likewise, then schools will be compelled to remove all the Five Pillars of Islam in Common Core.

Your Views: The real ‘War on Christmas’ is waged against poor Jesus served

This time of year we begin hearing about the "War on Christmas," as the nonreligious seek to enforce the constitutional separation between church and state. Others talk about a "War on Thanksgiving" as early shopping begins to infringe on family time and Thanksgiving time. But there's another war far more displeasing to God, at least according to Jesus.

Your Views: Area restaurants applauded for providing free meals to veterans

Many thanks should be extended to all the local restaurants who provided free dinners to veterans on Veterans Day. Such a positive, supportive attitude only serves to strengthen the community and the country. A week later, I was impressed to see a restaurant in Buford extend the honor by providing literally hundreds of free dinners to local veterans.
