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.

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.
