Dawson County High School's 2012 Tiger Yearbook Staff recently received two national awards for the 2012 Tiger album.
Walsworth Publishing Company announced last month that the 2012 Tiger was going to be included in its Gallery of Excellence, meaning the book will be showcased with other top books in both printed form and on the Web.
Melanie Spooner, teacher at Kilough Elementary School, remembers the first time she wanted to be a teacher.
"My first grade teacher was very young, pretty and sweet. I think it was her third year teaching and I just thought she was perfect in every way. That was the first year I remember thinking, 'I am going to be a teacher.' And I never thought of doing something else," she recalled.
For the sixth consecutive year, adults from across Dawson County will gather Thursday to prove they are indeed smarter than a 10-year-old.
The "Are You Smarter Than a 10-year-old" competition, which benefits the Reading Education Association of Dawson County, is set up much like Jeff Foxworthy's game show, "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader," asking questions taught at the elementary school level.
After further review, it appears the city of Dawsonville won't ask voters on Nov. 6 to consider allowing sales of distilled spirits by the drink on Sundays.
A second public hearing on the topic ended Monday night with the city council voting to postpone further discussion until November. That means the matter is unlikely to make the ballot until at least March.
