Your Views: Americans, it's time to unite and ‘be the people’ again

Recently, I was at the National Archives and saw the hand-printed documents our country was founded upon. I cannot describe to you the emotion, the sense of honor and respect, the call to duty that seeing those frail papers firsthand produces in each and every heart.

Your Views: Our nation has lost its way

Today, America is a lost nation. Lost by its own will, lost by turning its back on God, lost in itself.

Your Views: Free markets don’t provide best health care

While the middle-class economy, Social Security, the environment and various other justice issues are of grave concern, the primary issue for me in this election was health care.

Your Views: Fire insurance cost rises without new Hall station

I received a letter from my insurance company today; they are canceling my homeowners policy, and before you jump to conclusions, I pay my premiums on time. No, this has to do with a fire rating in my area.

Your Views: Ceremony honoring Korean War vets was touching, appreciated

This is for the families of fallen heros of the Korean War and from Hall County: The Korean Vets Memorial that was unveiled Saturday at Rock Creek Veterans Park was a very touching program. The Korean Veterans of Georgia are to be commended for their dedicated and hard work and for their vision in remembrance.

Your Views: Charter school option should stay at local level

We must be clear that a no vote on constitutional amendment No. 1 regarding charter schools is not a vote against charter schools. It's a vote in support of the ability of our locally elected and accountable Hall County school officials to make those local public charter school decisions. Public charter schools are already in existence in Hall County and are an important offering to our community.

Your Views: A ‘thank you’ from family of honored Korean War veteran

I would like to thank everyone who put their time and effort into erecting the Korean War Memorial, which is slated to be dedicated on Saturday. My uncle, Howard Donald O'Kelley, is one of the men to be honored. He was killed on May 19, 1951. He was only 20 years old at the time. I never knew him, but he is and always will be remembered by our family.

Your Views: Letter on ‘moral differences’ is embarrassing to Democrats

Thank you for publishing an opinion by Eugene Elander from Dahlonega in The Times Friday ("Election choice should not be about morality.") By doing so, you have demonstrated your belief in the First Amendment to our Constitution.

Your Views: Obama did nothing over Libyan attacks, turns his back on God

We are now only a couple of weeks away from a presidential election that I firmly believe will define whether we continue to live our lives as a free people or cease to enjoy the blessings of an almighty God that bestowed upon America the rights we've had since our forefathers established our republic.

Your Views: All of us should willingly pay local school tax

Taxes - we all pay them and sometimes complain about them. However, lest we forget that unless we each want our own ambulance and fire truck in our driveway, plus an EMT or two, taxes save us money. We support each other by all contributing to the common pot for the things we may not use every day but keep our community vibrant and thriving: Roads, parks, boat launches and schools.

Your Views: Charter school plan takes action to address school shortcomings

The only thing we know for certain is that K-12 education in America is in deep trouble and dramatic changes are needed. We have spent the last 40 years trying to feel good by deluding ourselves into thinking preschool focus will solve our problems.
