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: Whose morality should we use when deciding on our laws?

In response to the March 9 article, "'Social issues' are really about morality" by Trevor Thomas: I just returned from a fundraiser at the Playboy Mansion in Hollywood with a group of international business leaders, where we raised millions for cancer research. Would you label me immoral for assisting cancer victims because the event was held at a landmark of the sexual revolution?

Your Views: Law officers’ effort appreciated in home invasion case

I would like to thank the officials who caught those young men who ransacked that house on Cooley Drive, and were going down Black Drive in time to get them. I will always pray for them. May God continue to watch over them.

Your Views: Save our freedoms and vote

The movie "Act of Valor" depicts Navy Seal Team 7 engaged in special operations to protect our nation. The heroic sacrifice is representative of and honors a long line of American heroes who have served our country. As the saying goes, some gave all and all gave some.

Your Views: Birth control was a personal matter, now a political football

I just can't pass on a news item of the day. It is worth comment because it involves our president and Congress.

Your Views: Company’s desire to rezone area should be denied

Zoning laws exist for a reason: To protect and separate one set of land uses from another. These separations are put in place to keep incompatible land uses separated.

Your Views: It’s time for mother to stop overshadowing son’s success

I'm a member of the Gainesville High School Class of '99. I've been following the news about Cody Stephens and his mother's fight for him to be named sole valedictorian.

Your Views: Celebrate the blessings we have

Both students at Gainesville High School are smart students and I praise them. I do not know either one of them. But I am a mother of a great daughter who is 41 years old today.

Your Views: GHS valedictorian showed class, unselfishness

I want to congratulate the Bryants on raising an outstanding son. He has shown more class, maturity and unselfishness than anyone involved in this controversy. I am sure his classmates and the community will long remember him for these traits long after others are forgotten.

Your Views: What is really ‘fair’ about more taxes for the rich?

Recently, Warren Buffett joined with the president to say the "rich" should pay their "fair share" of tax. President Barack Obama mentioned Buffett specifically, pointing out that he pays a lower rate than his secretary (never mind that he pays a factor much higher).

Your Views: Candidates for president have little practical training for job

The current presidential debates put me in mind of the last Eisenhower-Kennedy transition meeting, Jan. 19, 1961. The emphasis of that meeting was Indochina. We do remember the ensuing, ill-fated Vietnam War do we not?

Your Views: Assist in the effort to save endangered hemlock trees

Feb. 26 to March 3 is National Invasive Species Awareness Week and a good time to highlight a particularly troublesome example: the hemlock woolly adelgid that is killing hemlocks from Maine to Georgia.

Your Views: GHS controversy an insult to what students achieved

I am perturbed to say the least of it. The issue of Cody Stephens and the decision for co-valedictorian is a asinine debate. Moreover, calling it a racial issue is a mockery to the proponents of civil rights.

Your Views: Wisdom failed us when US placed Obama in charge

Nations and people that forget history are doomed to repeat them. It seems to me that in our age of enlightenment, man has advanced greatly in the fields of education and technology to a level that was thought unreachable in times past. The sad fact, however, is that we have not achieved wisdom.

Your Views: Relationship of state to church like sun to moon

The separation of church and state is very much like the separation of the sun and moon. To describe it more appropriately, we really should rephrase our conversation to say the "relationship" between the two.

Your Views: Donations help Medical Center Foundation on its healing mission

The holiday season brings out the best in many, and I have seen a multitude of blessings come from the season of giving we have just completed with The Medical Center Foundation's Healthy Journey Campaign.

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: Ga. legal community mourns loss of attorney Sartain

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to offer condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of Attorney Joe B. Sartain Jr. of Gainesville on his recent passing.

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.
