Referring to fringe groups as ‘militia’ tarnishes our real citizens’ defense

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."

Lula again shows why it is a small town with a big heart

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.

Taxpayers should not shell out for misuse of police vehicles

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.

Another building for lease could be used by Brenau University

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'!

City still needs venue to display our local talent

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.

Young people, enjoy the good times, fun rides while they last

Riding home one night recently, my friend, E.P., and I couldn't help but to start reminiscing about the good old days and the good times that we had as we were amazed at the carnival or fair, or whatever they call it these days. The rides and attractions were set up right in the middle of downtown Gainesville.

Veteran heroes pass the torch to keep us free

This Veteran's Day we should remember and thank all those who have bravely served our country and military. We want to especially recognize and honor those of World War II. Why? Because we are rapidly losing them! According to the Veteran's Administration we are losing veterans of WWII at a rate of more than 740 a day.

Georgia does not need money earned from casino gambling

"Casinos could produce $1 billion a year," but for who? I hope the people of our beloved state won't fall for that line. That statement could be true, but who would benefit from the proceeds? I hope the schools won't be used to get something like that passed.

Brenau’s use of Mountains Center won’t enhance city

As someone who has been a Georgia Mountain Players season ticket holder for the past eight or so years, I want to add my name to the list of concerned citizens of Gainesville and the surrounding area regarding the proposed plan to lease the Georgia Mountain Center to Brenau University for use as classroom and lecture hall space.

Christians, don’t get caught up in creation debate

In my opinion, any of the saints and faithful brethren in Christ Jesus who have allowed themselves to be duped into creation debates, as in current Your Views letters based on Joan King's Oct. 18 column, should be ashamed.

Americans should insist that our Social Security IOUs be honored

When Lyndon Johnson was president, he and all the rest of the Democrats said we had more money in Social Security than we would ever be able to spend. So what did they do? President Johnson and the Democrats took a great deal of money out of Social Security and put an IOU in the account.

Rise in education costs similar to real estate bubble

The president recently made a campaign speech about the magnitude of the problem created by student debt and possible solutions. This has caused talking heads on television to rant about the causes. Liberals say tuition increases are a result of decreasing support by government. Conservatives say it is caused by the easy access to borrowed money.

More road signs, speed bumps are a waste; just enforce the law

I see that the Gainesville City Council has voted to impede traffic even further by spending some $42,000 on speed bumps and more signs in the Lakeview Academy area.

US following similar path to ruin of other great societies

Your Views: UGA football game experience ruined by ear-shattering ‘music’

Before I share my opinion about the University of Georgia's misguided attempt to entertain fans as they enter the stadium, I'll mention my longtime affiliation with UGA, starting with the five years I spent there as a Speech Communication faculty member, after earning my Ph.D. at Ohio University.
