Candidates should not pander to voters based on their faith

In Monday's edition of The Times, a writer takes issue with Joan King's recent column regarding the current anti-science fervor in politics. The writer describes a faith-based alternative theory for the creation of the universe centered on the belief that "God can easily create something that is already old."

Blowout games don’t provide positive lessons

As I looked over the scores for the Friday games, I was disturbed at the large number in which the loser was not only beaten but completely humiliated: 66-7, 44-0, 55-0, 48-3, 55-6. These were scores in just the top 30 listed.

Why would our God create an ‘older’ universe just to fool us?

In response to Mr. Hinds' letter Monday, I must speak out. His position is that God created the universe 10,000 years ago but made everything in it look and test by every scientific way possible to be 14 billion years old.

Universe debate misses fact that God can create something old

Joan King tells Christian skeptics that we are purveyors of "bad science encouraged by bad politics," including our skepticism about man-made global warming, etc. But she really does not like the idea that God created the universe relatively recently. Here, she shows her ignorance of how to think carefully about her presuppositions.

Voters need to learn more about 2012 transportation sales tax

Education on the transportation tax begins should have been an appropriate headline to the Oct. 16 transportation tax article because we need to educate ourselves first before battling it out one way or the other.

Nation’s direction won’t change until we switch drivers

Today's American politics is like a stolen car speeding down a road lined with multiple signs declaring "Bridge Out Ahead."

Emergency crews did not need to race to scene of fatal wreck

The other day, we were driving by an accident on Candler Road. At that point, there were only the utility crew and one police unit at the scene. By the time we got to the light down by Waffle House, an ambulance with full siren blaring and several police units were racing to the scene, right down to a motorcycle unit.

Column on mark contrasting occupy, tea party groups

I read Trevor Thomas' article regarding the tea party and "occupiers" and thought it was a marvelous piece. His comparisons are right on target and can be easily documented and footnoted.

America has lost its way while losing its faith, values

When you're retired and have a lot of time to kill, you've got plenty of time to observe and see what a mess we're in here in America.

Education is valued on job, less so in classroom

I'm 33 years old and I've finally decided to go back to college. I dropped out after my freshman year and truly have no regrets about it. I've travelled all over and I've led a great life. Now I've finally settled on a path I would like to follow and I need to go to school for it.

Concentration of money in US leads to unrest

I am a longtime admirer of the Times, finding the editors and board in this highly partisan region to be level and fair in their observations of things political. I particularly appreciate the willingness to accept expressions of opinion across the whole spectrum.

Protesters see our economy as out of balance

Your editorial, "Biting the hand," in last Sunday's paper shows a real lack of understanding of the Wall Street protests and the current struggles of many middle-class Americans. If you actually listen to the protesters you will see that many cannot find a job, don't have health insurance, have low-paying jobs and student loan debt to pay off or are generally struggling to make ends meet. They are from all age groups and all walks of life.

Guns in church are a violation of what our faith represents

I am not surprised when I see an article on the front page of The Times that reads: "Group takes guns in church case to federal appeals court." Also, it is not a surprise that some local churches are offering differing views on the issue.

Your Views: Selma’s lesson still rings true: We should make our voices heard

Several weeks ago, we looked back at the historic march that began in Selma, Ala., in March 1965. This event was a painful time in our nation's history, but a time that we can all gather great strength from.

Your Views: A baker’s dozen buzzwords we ought to banish

Many people are like sheep concerning buzzwords. One participates and the rest follow the herd. Eventually, a buzzword becomes annoying, trite and ready for banishment.

Your Views: Future sales tax votes should be on fall ballots

The front page headline Sunday in The Times read "Where have all the voters gone?" Let's go back just a few months to the fall of 2014 when midterm elections were in the news. Recall The Times writing about how politicians in Hall County were concerned that SPLOST VII would not be passed by voters for a seventh time if SPLOST VII was placed on the November 2014 ballot?

Your Views: Bullying is hurtful at any age, even when aimed at principal

I read with concern the two recent items in The Times regarding alleged bullying at Myers Elementary (March 7 article, March 19 letter to the editor). Quite honestly, I was confused; I thought perhaps I had read the name of the school incorrectly, and even more confused when I read the principal involved in the articles. I started shaking my head, thinking,"Are you kidding me? Are they really accusing Beth Hudgins of dealing improperly with a situation so potentially hurtful?"

Your Views: Myers Elementary principal is a ‘rare gem’ in handling students

I am writing in response to the article, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville" of March 7. It saddened me to read such negative words about Beth Hudgins.

Your Views: America should take care of its own needy first

I recently read in The Times, and I was not really surprised, what sweet idea America has now: Tens of thousands of immigrant children are allowed here, in the good old u.s.a. via Florida.

Your Views: GOP senators need to stop spewing hate

Mary Drummer is right on about Georgia's senators being wrong to have sent a letter to Iran. They are certainly overstepping their place and proving once again that they, of the Republican party, are incapable of sensibly leading this country's government.

Your Views: Principal at Myers Elementary is qualified to keep bullying incidents in check

I am writing in response to the article from March 7, "Bullying incidents test school policy in Hall County, Gainesville." As a parent of a child in elementary school, the subject is concerning to me. However, I am not worried at all because my child goes to Myers Elementary School. I'm not worried because I have 100 percent faith in my son's teacher and his principal to do the right thing for my child, and those in his class.

Your Views: Housing market still is pointed upward this year in Hall County

There have been some recent headlines about home sales falling. Those headlines are misleading. Housing sales look different from one month to another and from one quarter to another.

Your Views: Series on foster child care opened eyes to a serious issue

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.
