Your Views: SPLOST is a bargain, fairest way to provide school needs

I took advantage of early voting and voted yes to renewing the Education SPLOST 1-cent sales tax. It is not a new tax; it's been here since 1997. It's the fairest way to provide the money needed in our schools.

Your Views: Our nation was founded on tolerance for other beliefs

I am writing in reference to the letter by Dr. Tom Smiley wrote concerning building bridges with Muslims and other "cultic" groups. I am sure Dr. Smiley has built many bridges in the Gainesville community with other religions and perhaps has shown his love to others. I do not know him personally, but from what I know of pastors, this is what pastors do, they build bridges and love.

Your Views: Immigration bill not based on reason but on frustration

The new immigration bill currently in our state legislature, House Bill 87, is a bad law and represents bad public policy that stems from frustration with our federal government's unwillingness to address the ongoing immigration crisis rather than from rational thought.

Your Views: Hall SPLOST vote will ensure a bright future

The upcoming E-SPLOST vote is of great importance to the children of Gainesville and Hall County and the community as a whole. The tax has been one of the most beneficial acts in recent years. Our legislators gave us a wonderful tool to greatly improve school infrastructure.

Your Views: Muslim worship in Christian churches; a wrong idea resurfaces

Several months ago, I responded to an article in our paper regarding Christians building bridges with Muslims and other cultic groups. My point remains now, as then, that more than building bridges, the important thing is to tell the truth.
