Your Views: Religious beliefs should not be ignored to placate some groups

Whether you or I agree or not, people have a right to their beliefs, unless you oppose the left. The current issue is with the bill in Arizona that Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed.

Your Views: More guns can’t eliminate danger of human error

This letter is in response to Jim McCarthy's letter and anyone else who believes more guns in public means a safer community. I'm not sure about him, but I'm positive I live in the real world. In the real world, people who carry guns are no better or worse than everybody else, and that's the problem.

Your Views: Plentiful guns won’t help heal the pain from tragic shootings

A recent letter to the editor suggested what many in Georgia believe to be true about guns: If only we had more of them, there would be fewer gun tragedies.

Your Views: Workers cleared streets well after storm

I want to thank Hall County road maintenance workers when we had the snow and ice on the roads. I called them to clean my street along with some more streets that were covered in snow. They went far beyond what I asked them to do. Also, the street sign was knocked down and they came out immediately to put it back up.

Your Views: Here’s the real hot air problem

This letter is for all the global warming folks in your reading audience. I have figured out a cheap way to get rid of global warming: Get rid of all that hot air coming out of Washington, D.C. It's sure to get the job done.

Your Views: Guns in more places could prevent tragedy

My comment concerns the position taken by Hall County Schools Superintendent Will Schofield on having guns in his schools (Feb. 19, Guns in more places: Is it a good idea?).

Your Views: Natural selection is a survival mechanism for all organisms

Evolution is a fact. But let's call it by its proper name, natural selection. Natural selection is not a "law;" it is a process where populations (including human) physically change over time to meet the challenges of an ever changing environment.

Your Views: Many scientists are now rejecting evolution as a fact

Reply to "Science vs. Religion," Saturday's Opinion page: Columnist Ann McFeatters cited a Gallup Poll that 46 percent of Americans believe God created man (humans) in their current form. This is alarming to her since the overwhelming scientific evidence is that evolution is true.

Your Views: State, local leaders deserve credit for clearing highways

After all is said and done, from my perspective, where credit is due, credit is given. The processes and actions demonstrated to keep the highways and roads open were a great and successful effort.

Your Views: Obama’s corrupt leadership has divided America, hurt capitalism

Has America developed a "death wish" mindset? Maybe it's just me, but it seems that ever since we elected our present chief executive in 2008, things have been steadily going to hell in a handbasket with Barack Obama and his corrupt, dysfunctional administration of radical "America-hating" loons. I've made a study over the last 5½ years of all the broken promises and unfilled commitments this president has made. His signature accomplishment is Obamacare. This health care system was never intended to improve health coverage for America. Its sole purpose was to divide Americans and financially destroy our capitalistic ...

Your Views: Community came together during storm

The members of the Gainesville Police Department and I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their patience, preparations and understanding during the inclement winter weather. Things could have truly been crippling had it not been for the communities support and preparedness. You, the community, took the warnings to heart, prepared and allowed us in public safety and service to conduct our jobs. You heeded the warnings to keep the roadways clear to help us ensure the safest possible outcome during this weather. At no time during this challenging weather did we ever sacrifice, suspend or alter our service to ...

Your Views: Income inequality in area is real and tied to both SAT scores, race

Other voices speak to raise the level of concern of growing gap between rich and poor. Times headlines (Feb. 9) report that "Pay gap not a hot topic in Hall area." Local leaders polled that income inequality is not in the conversation, while some see a solution to the problem.

Your Views: PETA memorial wasn’t worth coverage given

I don't know which disturbs me more, the request from PETA member Sarah Segal for a memorial for chickens killed in a wreck recently in Gainesville, or the fact that The Times gave top billing to the subject in the Feb. 7 issue.

Your Views: Common Core takes Ga. schools down wrong path

Common Core has been forced upon the states in an underhanded manner. The federal government made it a requirement that states adopt Common Core if they wanted to receive money for education from the 2009 Stimulus Bill. The applications for these funds were sent out and due back when the state legislature was not in session.

Your Views: Humanist group’s threat over prayer is just a publicity stunt

Well, what do you know. It appears we have some more Madalyn Murray O'Hair wannabes. The American Humanist Organization of Washington, D.C., has threatened legal action against Chestatee High School to prevent high school coaches from leading and participating in prayer with the players.
