Those that will profit off of the transportation SPLOST want to educate the public on why you should vote "yes." But what about the little guy paying all the costs?
Thank heaven for the good sense and activism of the Hall County commission who truly make an attempt to represent the residents of Hall County. Anyone who has ever had any dealings with the city of Oakwood knows how devious it is.
Rep. Rusty Kidd's DUI legislation ("Bill could offer 2nd chance after DUI charge," Sunday's Times) is the wrong bill at the wrong time.
I thank God we're able to express our opinions.
We're now entering the last year of President Barack Obama's term as chief executive of our nation. This upcoming presidential campaign is not going to be a pleasant one.
I have often wondered what it would take to bring this country down short of a military invasion. These are some of the things that came to mind.
In your Jan. 18 edition, Michelle Crawford gives her kudos to Fred Chitwood for his courage in assailing the character of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
In response to Alan Shope's "America, let's embrace our true liberal soul (Jan. 6):"
Kudos to Fred Chitwood for having the courage to write about honoring someone of questionable background with a national holiday while virtually ignoring the birthday of a great American military leader. And congratulations to The Times for having the guts to run his letter.
It seems to me that the portion of their pay that the Mexican immigrants send home, to their own families, in their own villages, is the best foreign aid program that the United States has. No bureaucrat in D.C. or Mexico City intervenes. Women and children get the money. That is good for everyone.
Dear Joan King: You have many detractors, but I am certainly not among them. Yours is a voice of reason in an ocean of insanity. While I do not always agree with you, your points are well thought-out and presented. Keep up the good work. We need you.
Thanks to the generous efforts of Gainesville residents, thousands of hurting children worldwide will have the opportunity to experience the joy of Christmas.
This month we observe the birthday of two famous American men. Since it is no longer politically correct to study truth in history, it is only fair and honest for someone to make a comparison of the two individuals in question. I will make a description and you decide the identity of these two men.
Joan King's column about the "right to choose one's death" published Tuesday was irresponsible and reckless. To say that I was taken aback and disgusted is a gross understatement. Ms. King writes some outrageous articles, but this one topped them all.
Has anyone else noticed a proliferation of news stories about Georgia DOT local road programs and about the T-SPLOST vote upcoming, while at the same time the Georgia Newspaper's Partnership Poll (of what citizens want the Georgia General Assembly to work on this year) put the "Roads and Bridges" category at 2 percent preference?
I am a little disappointed in the article titled "New fee upsets tourism industry." The article itself was well written and worthy of the front page. However, the content of those interviewed and their titles was a little disturbing.
Regarding Thomas Day's recent letter, I wonder if he expects readers to buy what he's selling. Day speaks of tyranny, saying President Barack Obama has "come closer to establishing tyranny in the United States than at any other time in our history."
I am an addict. I take all things I like to excess. I am now 45 years old and a full two seconds away from a bad decision, instead of one second like when I was younger.
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to offer congratulations to Attorney Daniel A. Summer of Summer & Summer in Gainesville on receiving the 2014 Indigent Defense Award, presented by the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
Am I the only one that is shaking their head and asking "where did the idea come from to relocate Lanier Tech?"
Gainesville-Hall County, with the Northeast Georgia Medical System, is one of Georgia's prominent medical centers. With Lake Lanier, it is one of Georgia's prominent recreation hubs. With the poultry research laboratory and a high number of poultry industry businesses, it is one of the state's agricultural centers. With the changing seasons in the Gainesville section of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, the area will become a prominent center for celebrating spring, summer, fall and even winter.
The recent celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Selma march was a wonderful event to remind us of the progress that has been made since that event. One unfortunate event was Jesse Jackson's comments decrying the tyranny of the majority over the minority. It is clear by his remarks that he neither understands the meaning of tyranny nor does he understand our form of government.
I know the souls of those who went down in the plane in France are in heaven, with the exception of one. Folks, we are also on the next plane heading the same way, only we have one thing in our favor: The door to the control cabin is open and desperately in need of a pilot.
On more than one occasion, I have taken pen to paper to offer my criticism of your newspaper. It is expected that we subscribers will do that. When a newspaper does something that I feel is commendable, I will also offer my praise as well as extending my subscription another quarter.
