Cut the weakest Hall workers rather than furlough everyone

I noticed two plus years ago that surrounding counties including Gwinnett and Forsyth were making severe cuts to their planning and building inspection departments.

Meals on Wheels is a vital service to area’s shut-ins

Some of our Hall County commissioners seem to be badly uninformed about the importance of the Community Service Center, especially since they have in mind cutting out funding because of income shortfall.

Honesty, openness are long overdue from Hall leaders

It is now clear, as was before 2008, that our county government, like AIG, did not see something coming. The variances of the situation are not the same; however, the concept remains the same.

Sheriff has much more integrity than self-serving commissioners

Hall County commissioners are pointing fingers at the Hall County Sheriff's Office looking for a scapegoat for their budget woes. Don't forget commissioners, there are four fingers pointed back at you.

Nation can’t solve its problems by turning away from creator

There are so many articles in our papers, radios and television covering the myriad of problems and woes that we, as a nation, are facing daily with no solutions to be found.

Many vote for the candidate who promises the most giveaways

The letter from Mr. Fearn on Saturday implied that teachers where stupid if they voted for Nathan Deal because he intended to cut education budgets (along with a lot of other things).

Slice-of-life columnist Morris a welcome change in newspaper

My Monday morning this week was truly blessed by the column from Renee Hand Morris. As a reader of The Times for 19 years, I have always treasured the human interest stories by excellent local writers including Renee, Mildred Speights, Tack Cornelius, Tom Nichols, Harris Blackwood and others. They consistently touch my heart in ways that no other section of the paper can hope to do.

Money wasted on TVs, bridge

How many flat screen TV's were bought with taxpayers' money for the new public safety building? How many jobs could have been saved in construction costs? And now we're paying for a bridge to nowhere being built in town.

Shutting down Hall buses would save in long run

Many folks in the county have criticized Hall County commissioners for not looking at the long-term implications and costs of their decisions over the past couple of years.

Military officer group’s outing provides funds for wounded vets

On June 6, the Georgia Mountain Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America, a group of active, retired and former military officers, sponsored a golf tournament at Lake Lanier Islands for Wounded Warriors (wounded service members of any war or conflict) to raise funds for Homes for Troops, Fisher House and Wounded Warrior Transition and related programs. The chapter will donate more than $30,000 to those programs.

This week's job fair organizers were unprepared for large crowds

I went to the Job Fair and Career Expo on Wednesday at the Georgia Mountains Center. Wow. There are some people in this town that need to get a grip on reality.

Jobless benefits shouldn’t go out until all state’s crops are picked

I would urge Gov. Nathan Deal to stand by his guns on the illegal immigrant bill that was passed. One viable solution to this labor problem is to look to those getting unemployment benefits. I would suggest before one more penny is paid in benefits, all the peach crops and vegetable crops would have to be picked.

Power of the ‘R’ drives voters’ choices in Ga.

I recently wrote a letter about the election of Nathan Deal and his subsequent failures. It has since come to my attention that people took my comments to mean that I think our teachers and citizens are stupid. This is absolutely not the case.

Health care law is not the way letter writer described

Regarding the recent letter by Mike Scupin, "Americans need to learn truth about health law," he says, "In its final form, (Obamacare) will place bureaucrats between you and your doctor and with that, the loss of the freedom you have to choose what service and doctor you prefer. It will simply disappear."

Your Views: The real ‘War on Christmas’ is waged against poor Jesus served

This time of year we begin hearing about the "War on Christmas," as the nonreligious seek to enforce the constitutional separation between church and state. Others talk about a "War on Thanksgiving" as early shopping begins to infringe on family time and Thanksgiving time. But there's another war far more displeasing to God, at least according to Jesus.

Your Views: Area restaurants applauded for providing free meals to veterans

Many thanks should be extended to all the local restaurants who provided free dinners to veterans on Veterans Day. Such a positive, supportive attitude only serves to strengthen the community and the country. A week later, I was impressed to see a restaurant in Buford extend the honor by providing literally hundreds of free dinners to local veterans.

Your Views: Health care works fine without federal government in the way

This is in response to Joan King's recent attempt to display her superior wisdom. I thought her forte was climate change, but now she's scolding us all for not embracing President Barack Obama's nightmare health care plan. Where's she been this past year?

Your Views: Columnist misread how US voters feel

Reply to Clarence Lusane column of Nov. 11: He is correct when he says the election was not a mandate for a Republican agenda. I disagree that it happened because of a "pervasive anti-Obama drumbeat" or "incessant Republican pounding." It happened because the American people are mad.

Your Views: Reverse brain drain; send immigrants back home

According to President Barack Obama, the citizens of the United States are not exceptional. Also, he claims we are no better than any other country on this planet.

Your Views: Law enforcement needs to clamp down on teen speeders

I have a 16-acre sheep farm on Coker Road. One recent evening, a 16-year-old boy hit my fence driving 80 mph, as he told police. He and his friend, who was also 16, were going home from East Hall High School.

Your Views: Traffic light is needed at risky Hall intersection

On Nov. 10, three men, one of them a Hall County Sheriff's deputy, were injured in a crash at Spout Springs Road and Union Circle. Thankfully none of the men suffered anything worse than a minor injury. But anyone driving in this area with any regularity knows how dangerous this intersection can be. The fact that there are not more accidents at this intersection is astounding.

Your Views: US policy of intervention only perpetuates capitalist goals

In her recent letter, Mary Young seems to refer to the 9-11 attacks during the Bush administration as if they constitute a justification for the war in Iraq. Neither Saddam nor Iraq was involved in those attacks. She also attempts to justify the war by pointing to past history, including Saddam's use of gas against Iraqi Kurds. The U.S. sold Saddam that gas. I have to wonder, who does she think the U.S. intended the gas to be used on? As suppliers of WMD, we are complicit in that crime.

Your Views: Obama in China; dictators squared

President Barack Obama left his domestic woes behind to take a foreign policy trip to China this week. He met with the leader of China in a private meeting to talk about Chinese-U.S. relations and trade policies. The American press was allowed total access to the meeting and to take photographs of the occasion. It was interesting to see pictures of the world's most powerful dictator standing next to some Chinese guy.

Your Views: No tradition is more vital than family

Family is the most important organization in time (on this earth) or in eternity. God Himself organized the first family on earth. He created all of us as His spiritual children and thus His spiritual family. Family is very important to Him. "What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."
