Your Views: Climate change letter based on bogus sources

Regarding W.T. Hinds' recent letter, I noticed the online version contained citation links. After checking some, I thought it important to offer background on sources for his comment "Earth has not warmed at all since about 1999."

Your Views: Punishment doesn’t fit crime in case of Georgia star Gurley

It is absolutely unbelievable that Todd Gurley would be suspended indefinitely for playing football for Georgia for supposedly autographing some sports articles and being paid for it, while last year, Jameis Winston continued to play and won the Heisman Trophy and the national championship though he was investigated for rape at Florida State.

Your Views: No global warming for 18 years, but carbon dioxide is increasing; why?

Insanity is sometimes described as doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. This certainly describes manmade global warming.

Your Views: UGA football game experience ruined by ear-shattering ‘music’

Before I share my opinion about the University of Georgia's misguided attempt to entertain fans as they enter the stadium, I'll mention my longtime affiliation with UGA, starting with the five years I spent there as a Speech Communication faculty member, after earning my Ph.D. at Ohio University.

Your Views: Earth needs plants to clean the atmosphere

This is in reference to the ranting of the delusional Rick Frommer on Oct. 1. The letter was both hilarious and pathetic.

Your Views: Violence in ER is directly linked to a lack of mental health care

In response to Sunday's story in The Times, "Panel studying violence against emergency room workers:" We will never be able to properly address emergency department violence in America until we take a hard look at our ongoing mental health care crisis. This has led to violence in some cases by frustrated and distressed psychiatric patients who are held in emergency departments for long periods of time because there are very few options for long-term care.

Your Views: Look for Clinton, Christie in 2016

I agree Mitt Romney was by far the best-prepared candidate for president; can't do it over.

Your Views: Climate change deniers fail to grasp true threat

The two global climate change deniers in the Oct. 1 Gainesville Times seem to have joined the Ostrich Club, composed of those who, like fabled ostrich behavior, stick their heads in symbolic sand to avoid grave realities.

Your Views: Congress should support right to consume raw milk products

Congress, please support and vote yes on both HB 4307 and 4308 that allows me access to raw, unpasteurized milk and milk products. Access and consumption of healthy organic whole foods leads to healthy bodies and less need for medical treatment due to disease. Thank you for supporting my rights and freedom to consume foods of my choice.

Your Views: Romney proven to be right in ’12, should run again

I believe the draw to run for president will eventually bring Mitt Romney back into the fray. I think he'll run and I hope he does, not necessarily because I agree with everything he believes in or stands for. Not because I think he has the best chance to win, but he has a shot. He should run because he's been proven right.

Your Views: Peterson’s real mistake was fathering so many kids, not disciplining one

I agree with Christine Flowers' article from Tuesday. I grew up in the '50s and 60s and received many spankings from my father. That was the culture then, just as it was for Adrian when he was growing up. I spanked my children in the '70s. As Christine says, times have changed; my children did not spank their children in the '90s.

Your Views: Fast and pray for America during our times of turmoil

I think everyone will agree America is in a time of crisis. So why hasn't our land been healed?

Your Views: To avoid CO2 threat, give up plants, water

I'd like to applaud Gerald Tipton of Gainesville (as well as all the other global warming buffs) for his letter last week suggesting that we all curtail our consumption of meat in order to reverse global warming, currently going under the new name of "climate change."

Our Views: Global warming is a hoax aimed at ‘share the wealth’ ideology

In response to the ridiculous diatribe that Gerald Tipton wrote and was printed in The Times on Friday, Sept. 26, I will respectfully say the following: The presupposition that global warming is a fact is erroneous. There are many learned people in the scientific community who do not believe that this theory is true.

Our Views: Stories on Nunn, GOP rally showed bias toward Democrats

From reading recent issues of The Times, one would think there is a real bias in favor of Democrats running for office and that Sam Nunn was running for the U.S. Senate, not his daughter, Michelle. In the Sunday issue, an article was titled: "A father looms large in key Senate race." The reader learns much more about retired Sen. Sam Nunn versus his daughter, Michelle. Are staff thinking if they push the story of Sen. Nunn enough they will change the minds of voters and persuade them to vote for Michelle?

Your Views: Tourism industry can get creative to offset extra fee

I am a little disappointed in the article titled "New fee upsets tourism industry." The article itself was well written and worthy of the front page. However, the content of those interviewed and their titles was a little disturbing.

Your Views: Obama’s push for tyranny is a right-wing plan

Regarding Thomas Day's recent letter, I wonder if he expects readers to buy what he's selling. Day speaks of tyranny, saying President Barack Obama has "come closer to establishing tyranny in the United States than at any other time in our history."

Your Views: Addictive behavior can be turned into community service

I am an addict. I take all things I like to excess. I am now 45 years old and a full two seconds away from a bad decision, instead of one second like when I was younger.

Your views: More questions should be asked about moving Lanier Tech

Am I the only one that is shaking their head and asking "where did the idea come from to relocate Lanier Tech?"

Your Views: Smithgall’s support for the arts sets our community apart

Gainesville-Hall County, with the Northeast Georgia Medical System, is one of Georgia's prominent medical centers. With Lake Lanier, it is one of Georgia's prominent recreation hubs. With the poultry research laboratory and a high number of poultry industry businesses, it is one of the state's agricultural centers. With the changing seasons in the Gainesville section of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, the area will become a prominent center for celebrating spring, summer, fall and even winter.

Your Views: US government is held hostage by a tyranny of the minority

The recent celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Selma march was a wonderful event to remind us of the progress that has been made since that event. One unfortunate event was Jesse Jackson's comments decrying the tyranny of the majority over the minority. It is clear by his remarks that he neither understands the meaning of tyranny nor does he understand our form of government.

Your Views: Who’s going to fly our plane? Rice would be the ideal pilot

I know the souls of those who went down in the plane in France are in heaven, with the exception of one. Folks, we are also on the next plane heading the same way, only we have one thing in our favor: The door to the control cabin is open and desperately in need of a pilot.

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.
