Your Views: Jaycees honoree is a kind, caring physician

Kudos to Dr. Jennifer Gottsman, Jaycees Young Woman of the Year. You definitely deserve this honor and recognition for what you do for the children of this area.

As a grandmother of two developmentally disabled grandsons, you have done everything in your capabilities to help me with them. You helped me get them diagnosed, treated and schooled. You are one of the finest pediatricians I've dealt with.

What sets you apart from all the other doctors I've dealt with is your genuine care, concern and love for my grandsons and me. You are one of a kind. My grandson, Hunter, is fascinated with the medical field and loves "Dr. G.K.E." (his nickname for her, which stands for Dr. Gottsman Kid Examiner).

Congrats and thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for us on our long hard journey. In my heart, you're an angel!

Middle School shows that it's got talent
I helped chair and attended one of the greatest displays of self-esteem and talent in our young teens at Gainesville Middle School. On March 20, "Gainesville Middle School's Got Talent Show" was held at the Gainesville High School Performing Arts Theatre (The Warehouse).

The whole community was invited to attend and many supporters came out to support these middle-schoolers. The audience was overwhelmed with angelic voices, gifted musicians and fantastic dancers.

I wanted to take the time to salute and recognize some good things that are happening at Gainesville Middle School. When our teens do positive things, the community should recognize them. So, to the 20 performers, I say to you, job well done and keep up the good work. I also offer a big thanks to the principals and board members who were in attendance, and the Gainesville Middle School PTA.
