Tom Crawford: Pick up the phone; we must hold elected officials accountable

When Donald Trump was campaigning for president, he pledged he would "drain the swamp" in Washington and put an end to all the influence peddling that had infected the nation's capital.

Letter: Thanks to community, rescue pros who helped saved a stranded pet

I would like to thank each and everyone who helped by making and posting flyers, calling with sightings, and ultimately, doing the dirty work of extracting Sugar Bear from that rural Murrayville well.

Letter: It’s hard to shrug off past nuclear accidents

After reading James Rust's letter defending the Public Service Commission's support for nuclear power, I find it remarkable that he would casually excuse the three worst nuclear power accidents in world history.

Letter: More traffic isn’t welcome at busy section of Gainesville

I read in your paper the new Holiday Inn Express will be built on Dawsonville Highway, a fast-growing, bustling section of town. That's not exactly how we would describe it. It's turned into a nightmare, and the building is still going on, with no chance of widening the road.

Letter: Renamed road should celebrate all of Deshaun Watson’s talents

A proclamation to rename Touchdown Drive to Deshaun Watson Drive is missing an opportunity to tell it all and still hit the mark. Bureaucracy very seldom looks outside the box, so this probably hasn't been considered. Therefore, I would like to suggest these options to capture the full magnitude of this multitalented young man.
