Your Views: Road safety, not revenue, is goal of sheriff’s office

The Hall County Sheriff's Office would like to address an issue brought up in Sunday's article, "Traffic citations down in Hall County." Obviously, the article was written from revenue standpoint, but we would like the opportunity to expand on the more important issue it illuminates.

Your Views: Why vote for anti-immigrant bill if you don’t believe in it?

I would like to comment on the article in The Times this weekend regarding barring undocumented students from attending state supported universities. It was reported that Sen. Butch Miller expressed serious reservations about the legislation but yet felt he had no choice except to vote in favor of it. Why did he have no choice?

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.
