Those who use trash disposal site should pay

There is a survey at the Hall County Dumpster site at the farmers market on Jesse Jewell Parkway. The manager had the survey for the residents of Hall County to check one of the following:

Obamacare won’t create the type of jobs nation needs

The Times on Sunday presented a pro-con discussion on Obamacare and the economy.

Obama’s policies are changing the country, but not for the better

I'd like to mention just a few things about our president that really disturb me.

Managing manure is not a waste of taxpayers’ money

In response to William Clark's letter, "Managing animal water being a waste of our state tax dollars," I would like to point out that the climate change grant referenced in the article was a federal grant and no state funds are being expended on that project.

Widening Spout Springs Road seems a waste of tax money

I have lived near and now on Spout Springs Road for six years. I remember when there was very busy morning and evening commuter traffic. With the lower employment and changing economy, this rationale and experience is no longer the same.

Teachers are not only professionals who need help from parents

As is my habit, I read Dr. John Rosemond's column Monday concerning homework with interest. I found myself in agreement with most of his notions, as is generally the case, but I must be missing something somewhere, as I am baffled by his assertion that he "know(s) of no other professional group (other than teachers) that expects others to help them with their job and not be paid for it."

Tea party’s stance on SPLOST: Stop gaming the system

Tom Crawford in his article, "Tea party's T-SPLOST battle brings out anti-tea party forces" made a statement that shows he either does not understand the view which the tea party has taken on this issue, or else he has an agenda he wishes to promote.

PSC member did not listen to public’s input at July meeting

I wanted to respond to Doug Everett's response, "PSC is watching nuclear plant projects closely," to Joan King's column last week. I attended the PSC meeting in Atlanta on July 6 on the rate sharing mechanism, which was open for public input. The process, which is supposed to allow public comment to the commissioners, was a sham.

Child’s struggle reminds us that we are one people

Regarding Dick Yarbrough's touching column about the short life of Abby Smith. Mr. Yarbrough really hits the issue of trying to empathize with others who may not be as fortunate, and, in describing young Abby's life, he brings out some truths we can all learn.

A fond farewell to a steady voice of conscience in NE Georgia

Adele Kushner's letters to the editor have surprised me. I wondered where she found the courage to write informed letters that didn't follow popular local themes.

Stossel’s observations on ‘wrongs and rights’ open eyes

I wish to commend The Times for publishing what I am sure to be an unpopular column by John Stossel, "What seems wrong might not be when you look a little closer" (Monday).

Time to take government back from politicians

America is truly heading straight for our next revolution. This revolution will not be one of innovation or industry. Rather, this revolution will come in the form of a people who have finally become fed up with the overreaching of boundaries on all sides by the American government.

Prayer shawl’s incorrect display at rally likely was unintentional

I, too, attended the prayers for Israel and saw the lady wearing the Tallith (prayer shawl) as a sash and was not happy at the sight.

Get ready for a wild West White House if Perry wins election

If Rick Perry is elected president, there will be a new slant to an old game created during the eras of Hoot Gibson, Tom Mix and John Wayne. It will be Perry and his cronies against the rest of us playing cowboys and indigents.

Prayer shawl concern is trivial

In response to Melinda Gottfried's questions about how Christians would feel if "little cups of juice" were served at a Christian event, this Christian wouldn't mind at all. It's a symbolic gesture, and like a man-made fabric shawl, shouldn't be worshipped as anything more.

Your Views: To avoid CO2 threat, give up plants, water

I'd like to applaud Gerald Tipton of Gainesville (as well as all the other global warming buffs) for his letter last week suggesting that we all curtail our consumption of meat in order to reverse global warming, currently going under the new name of "climate change."

Our Views: Global warming is a hoax aimed at ‘share the wealth’ ideology

In response to the ridiculous diatribe that Gerald Tipton wrote and was printed in The Times on Friday, Sept. 26, I will respectfully say the following: The presupposition that global warming is a fact is erroneous. There are many learned people in the scientific community who do not believe that this theory is true.

Our Views: Stories on Nunn, GOP rally showed bias toward Democrats

From reading recent issues of The Times, one would think there is a real bias in favor of Democrats running for office and that Sam Nunn was running for the U.S. Senate, not his daughter, Michelle. In the Sunday issue, an article was titled: "A father looms large in key Senate race." The reader learns much more about retired Sen. Sam Nunn versus his daughter, Michelle. Are staff thinking if they push the story of Sen. Nunn enough they will change the minds of voters and persuade them to vote for Michelle?

Your Views: It's hard to justify big Oakwood tax increase

I do not live in Oakwood but I have operated a business in the city for more than 10 years. My wife grew up in Oakwood and my father-in-law lives there. Our company has been involved with many charities that have benefited the area and we feel like Oakwood is our second home.

Your Views: Cutting meat from our diets would help ease climate change

Last Sunday, hundreds of thousands marched throughout the world demanding action on climate change as 120 world leaders gathered in New York for the United Nations Summit on Climate Change. What can we do?

Your Views: As with World War II, Middle East war should unite us in common cause

What a blessing to have the documentary "The Roosevelts" presenting an inspiring family biography filling us with the spirit of grace, inspiration and love so necessary in a time of war. By presenting a balanced picture with full, admirable bios of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor, Ken Burns reminds us of the right spirit, not only of grace and love but of perseverance, courage and determination, optimism and faith necessary for victory.

Your Views: Flowery Branch’s Gold Out for CURE set in late player’s memory

This year marks the third annual Gold Out for CURE at Flowery Branch High School. What once began as a small idea has now exploded into one of the school's biggest traditions.

Your Views: Pro football is a worthless pastime played by violent people

OK, so again an important program was interrupted for the "nfl." I print nfl in small letters because that's how important it is to me. So they are special people who can kick a ball around. Wow! That really takes education.

Your Views: Lions Clubs look to grow, add to service

Your article Sunday concerning challenges to area civic clubs did a good job in pointing out the struggles most civic clubs have in carrying on the work that they do.

Your Views: Hall County’s big heart helps refill food bank

I would personally like to thank the good and generous people of Hall County for their contributions of canned and boxed food items that helped to restock the Georgia Mountain Food Bank. Your very generous donations will help feed the hungry and needy among us in Hall County and four surrounding counties.

Your Views: Letter writer, columnist defend weak presidents, attack Bush

I do not make it a habit of reading your left-leaning (Your Views) section. This is in direct response to Gabriel Shippy's comments about how George Bush got us in a war.

Your Views: Funding for Obama’s war is already there

To fund Mr. Obama's war, the Pentagon, at this time, has nearly $60 billion, unspent, in the Overseas Contingency Operations Fund.
