Gainesville Human Resources Director Joan Sheffield announced her retirement Monday.
"I appreciate the opportunity and job fulfillment my position has provided me. After much thoughtful contemplation, however, I have decided to retire from public service effective Friday, June 26th," Sheffield said. "Gainesville is a great place to be, and I will certainly miss the many relationships I have acquired over these past nine years."
One of the White County sheriff's deputies who tried to talk Shannon Hamilton out of interfering with government property at his daughter's wreck site also had a couple of pointed questions for the grieving father.
