Why was extra job title piled on to Hall’s public safety director?

Recently, the news from the Hall County Board of Commissioners has been interesting.

People of faith shouldn’t give in to wealth envy

I am writing in reference to Alan Shope's latest politico-religious letter, "Rich politicians, preachers spend too much while others suffer."

Leaders fail us, especially our weak president

I watched the news and read the account of how our Congress has finally agreed on a solution to our national budget and heard our president give his assessment of the whole process to which, of course, he took no active part except to claim all the bows.

Preachers, politicians spend too much while poor suffers

The American middle class is no match for wealthy politicians and wealthy preachers. When it comes to money, they will outsmart and outmaneuver the middle class every time.

Time to change the status quo in local politics

Why the good guy never wins in politics. It's a narrative that we see over and over again every election cycle.

‘Fair share’ from wealthy is ideal if you pay nothing

To the gentleman who thinks Republicans and tea party members don't pay their fair share of taxes, I ask: What is my "fair share?"

Letter only touched the surface on Obama’s anti-gun policy

In response to Dr. Tom Smiley's letter about President Barack Obama and guns, I have to make a few comments.

Democratic leaders fail to do their jobs

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a budget for FY 2012 called "Cut, Cap, and Balance." The U.S. Senate would be expected to offer it's version of a 2012 budget. Next a committee would be formed to hammer out a budget acceptable to both houses and the president. That's the way the American people expect government to be managed.

'Gangs’ and ‘czars’ rule the roost

Apparently there are far too many Americans who are unaware of the suffering of millions of people around the world who have been ruled by czars and gangs.

Look for Obama to take on gun control if he wins second term

Believing that something won't happen, doesn't mean it won't. Many people think that despite the many negative factors that exist, President Barack Obama will barely cross the next presidential election finish line as victor.

People support government, not vice versa

I would like to know what planet Carole Scandrol lives on or at the least, what flavor Kool-Aid she's drinking. Sure the government can operate like an individual or business. No entity can operate spending more money than it brings in for an extended period of time. It boils down to government getting back to taking care of what it's supposed to and eliminating all the extras.

Pearce family is grateful to Hall deputies and responders

My name is Charlie Pearce, retired Navy captain and husband of 43 years to my wife, Gretchan Pearce. I served a little over 27 years in the U.S. Navy and had some combat experience in-country during Vietnam (1966-67) and again in Vietnam during 1972. I retired from the Navy in 1992 and worked in the private sector until 2002.

Columnist wrong to question Obama’s mother’s insurance

As usual, Kathleen Parker shows her uninformed bias against accomplished women in her very negative opinion of President Barack Obama's mother, who was denied coverage from CIGNA.

Government should not be managed like a family or a business

Government cannot operate like individuals or businesses. Its income is dependant on taxes paid and when so many people are unemployed, its income is way down.

Here is an easy solution for our nation’s debt limit wrangle

Agree to the debt limit increase by agreeing to a two-year decrease in all federal salaries by 10 percent. This solution avoids any tax increase and would cut federal spending. This solution would be popular with most Americans.

Your Views: TV show’s view of Appalachian South is hardly complimentary

While I don't usually read Ronda Rich's columns, I did on Oct. 7. The heading got my attention and I read on. She wrote about the TV series "Justified" and how good it is. While I agree that it's a great show and high on my favorites list, I am puzzled by some things she wrote about the Appalachian South. Not being familiar with her writings, I hope it was done tongue-in-cheek when she wrote, "But here's what 'Justified' does best: It gets the Appalachian South right without reducing us to mockery or ridicule."

Your Views: Hall school board needs to be aware of immunization dangers

To Hall County Board of Education: I am sure that you have been made aware by now of the recent announcement by Dr. William Thompson, formerly of the Centers for Disease Control and co-author of the study on immunizations and their link to autism. If you have not, what has come to light is that Dr. Thompson has publicly declared that the study and its findings were falsified. He has declared that the data was altered to make it appear as if there was no link.
