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.

Letter: Story on dog rescue a welcome break from tragic news

Thank you for devoting front page space for the heartwarming story of the dog rescue from the well. We are so used to horrible things on the front page, that this was a welcome story. It is good to temper the bad with the good, and remember that good things happen in this world.

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.
