Letter: Hall tax office doesn’t collect personal data

Many residents have contacted me regarding collection, use and ultimate security of confidential personal information in the Tax Commissioner Office. Specifically, the inquiry is on the collection of Social Security numbers to conduct business in our office, which has been brought to awareness by press coverage of the recent unintentional release of such by another county in Georgia. Rest assured, we do not collect Social Security numbers to fulfill our responsibilities.

Letter: This election mimics future Orwell foresaw many years ago

Now that the electors have spoken, a version of the world depicted in George Orwell's "1984" is coming to pass. In "1984," published in 1949 in England, Orwell describes a society dominated by Big Brother, a dictator who controls the tiniest details of all citizens' lives while demanding virtual worship of their "beloved" ultimate leader. Orwell was far ahead of his time in many ways, including the dating of his dystopia: "1984" arrived 32 years late, in 2016, with Donald Trump in the role of Big Brother.
