Your Views: Use logic, action to fight problems that plague nation

As budget talks continue in Washington and across the U.S. for many of its states, I have to wonder if anything will ever be resolved. Will all of this talking and analysis, all of the in-fighting and bickering actually pay off?

Your Views: Church always has stood for sanctity of life

I very much would like to correct a gross error which was written in Joan King's last article Feb. 7. The Roman Catholic Church has never permitted abortion. St. John, Chrysostom, St. Basil the Great, St. Gregory the Great, indeed all the church fathers of the ancient undivided Catholic and Apostolic Church are unanimous in their condemnations of killing the human fetus.

School board needs to disclose reasons for valedictorian pick

This comment is in relation to the recent controversy surrounding Gainesville High School's selection of co-valedictorians for the May 2012 graduation. Historically valedictorians have been chosen based on highest GPAs. When deviations to this norm are taken, people pay attention and ask "why?"

Valedictorian should be proud, even if he is sharing the honor

I want to start by saying congratulations to Gainesville High School student Cody Stephens for being named valedictorian. His work and persistence are to be commended. The fact that he was named co-valedictorian takes nothing away from my respect for him.

Is the Golden Rule too simple?

It is difficult for me to disagree with some of Alan Shope's observations, but I wonder why he submitted all of this Billy Graham stuff. When did he have his meeting with God? Is he a frustrated preacher wishing to share his fear and confusion? Is practicing the Golden Rule too simple?

True heroes wear real helmets, not the football kind

I love watching football, but I often have considered professional athletes overgrown, overpaid, egomaniacal children who were completely out of touch with reality. A story I read today on the ESPN website brought my awareness of this problem to a new level.

Being good for good’s sake is its own reward

In addition to its love affair with wealth and power, the other problem with fundamentalist religion, including fundamentalist Christianity, is its insistence that some people will spend eternity in hell.

Will candidates deal on the sly to feed moon colony?

Even with a ‘no’ vote on sales tax, we’ll have to pay

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?
