Deer add beauty to Riverside Drive neighborhood

Who is informing you that the residents of Riverside Drive find the deer a problem and want them inhumanely killed? As a family living on Riverside, we find it offensive that we have been grouped with this minority.

Bond investment less attractive in Obama jobs plan

Municipal bonds are bonds issued by city and county governments. Bondholders receive interest from the issuers, which is excluded from income by the federal government. Moreover, if a resident of Georgia owns bonds issued by a Georgia city, such as Gainesville, the interest income is excluded for state purposes, too.

I am in my 70s and have never been more concerned for this country than now.

Hall school system should honor contributions of late Dr. Mundy

I was disappointed in the lack of the Hall County School System's display of respect for Dr. Gwen Mundy who died last week. I was especially disappointed with the generic quotes by Lee Lovett and Gordon Higgins who both knew and worked with Dr. Mundy. I also think that it was a great omission for Will Schofield not say a few words about her contributions to education in Hall County and Georgia.

FDA regulations would keep supplements off the market

I am concerned that the FDA needs to be stopped in its recent action to circumvent the congressional 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. The FDA on July 1 has proposed funding some new regulations that will purge some of the most valuable nutritional supplements from the markets.

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.

Your Views: Humankind is hardly perfect in its rebellion

I write this letter to pose further understanding after Tuesday's column by Joan King. Ms. King is a thoughtful and generally cogent writer. I read her column faithfully and remain in strong respect for her consistent revelations concerning the ongoing corruption in our nuclear plant construction process.

Your Views: Staff at assisted living facility responds well to frozen pipes

I am the director of nursing for Homestead Hospice of Athens and we have patients who are residents at Summers Landing Assisted living facility in Gainesville. It was a complete coincidence that I was visiting the facility at the exact moment that some frozen pipes in the ceiling burst Jan. 8. I wanted to write a letter to the editor in attempt to recognize the staff of Summers Landing. They happened to be having a staff meeting at the same time and that meant there were more employees in the building than usual.

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.
