Right-of-way acquisition is just starting on a major and unique-for-Georgia retooling of Ga. 400 at Hwy. 53 in Dawson County, one of the region's busiest intersections.
The cost of acquiring the 33 parcels is $9.5 million, a process that could take up to 18 months to complete, said Teri N. Pope, a Hall County-based spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Marcia Dulworth, 64, of Franklin, formerly of Dawsonville, died May 27, 2012.
Born Jan. 7, 1948, in Marion, Ind. to the late Shelby and Estaleene Melton, she lived in the Wells County area for more than 20 years, where she was employed by Franklin Electric for 21 years. Mrs. Dulworth lived in Dawson County for 15 years before moving to Franklin in 2012. She was a member of Bethel United Methodist Church where she taught in the preschool.
I wanted to thank everyone involved who helped make the third annual Taste of Dawson High at the Dawson County High School on Dec. 10 an even bigger and better event.
I could not have pulled this event off without thanking the following PTSO board members who helped make the event possible: Jon and Laurie Erickson, Alaina Jones, Katrina Lund, Kim Glaze, Michelle Matthews and Robyn Dunn.

Flowering and foliage plants make welcome gifts. How long they remain attractive may be directly related to the care they are given. Careful handling is also an important factor that may affect these plants.
Proper watering is critical. Large plants in small containers dry out quickly. Also, the relative humidity indoors tends to be quite low during the heating and air-conditioning seasons. Under these conditions, check plants daily.
