Northside Hospital now offers CT services here

Northside Hospital recently announced the expansion of its radiology services with the addition of CT, or computed tomography, services at its Dawsonville location.

A new setting has the potential to completely change a person's outlook, just ask the faculty at Hightower Academy.

Maps reflect realities today, simple math

The 2011 Special Session for Redistricting has come to an end but the questions, comments and discussions have not.

Most of us understand that redistricting is primarily a numbers game. Redistricting was made necessary by the 2010 Census which showed that the redistribution of the national and state populations, since the 2000 Census, would violate the one man, one vote requirement unless districts were redrawn.

Sometimes thank you is not enough

I haven't yet met the new manager of our local Kroger, but I hope he will be in the tradition of the previous ones, especially in community participation.

From the store's opening with a lady named Susan through several succeeding managers, Dawson County has been fortunate. Each one has been cooperative with various civic organizations, and it seems that the last one was the cream of the crop - or perhaps he was just here for a longer time.

10th anniversary of 9/11 is a time for reflection

As the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11 approaches, please take time to remember the innocent Americans who were lost on that fateful day at the hands of terrorists. Also, take time to remember the courage and dedication and sacrifice of the police officers and firefighters who perished at the Twin Towers 10 years ago. And who can forget the bravery and inspirational teamwork of the passengers of Flight 93?

I give thanks that we live in a country guided by morality. In fact, our founding fathers created a Constitution for a moral people. John Adams was one of America's ...

Time to plant fescue

The summer of 2011 has been hard on lawns. If you need to plant, or in many cases replant your fescue lawn, mid- September through October is excellent. With cooler nights, milder days and rain, fescue seeds will germinate quickly.

For many years the best known fescue has been Kentucky 31. It is durable and still used as a pasture grass. As a lawn grass Kentucky 31 tends to be coarse and clumpy unless seeded thickly and well-tended.
