If you are looking for something that we people that have lived here a long time that don't like. We don't like the tourist. That come up here from Atlanta or Florida. They build their houses on every rock clift or every scenic view in north east Georgia. Then they stick a posted sign on every tree on their property. They throw their trash in our use to be beautiful streams. Then we have these farmers that come from the state of North Carolina or other places that rent the fields out to raise crops. They invite every Mexican in Mexico up here to our use to be beautiful country. To raise their crops. And they add a lot more trash to our use to be beautiful community. When winter comes. They are suppose to go back to their country. But they don't.

I still think you live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.I feel the same as you do about our beautiful mountains being bulldosed down and houses everywhere.Your county had better get to gether and stop all this damage to the mountain tops. There is to many sub-divisons being built.County Commishner should put some stops in place and allow people to vote on its growth before its to late.Mexican people are never going home until we stand up and deport them.If they are here illegal they have already commited a felony.Why do local police not lock them up and deport them? If it was me or you how long do you think we would be allowed to run up and down the streets with a fellon against us?

I'm moving to Georgia in July to get back to the east where I was born and raised. I've lived in CA for the past 16 years and I hate it. It's fast paced and Keep-up-with-Jones's atmosphere. I want to get back to relaxing and enjoying the sunrise and sunset. The mountains of northern Georgia are beautiful. I was told most of the land was owned by the Forestry and it wouldn't overpopulate. Being told that alone is why I choose to move there. Cali if full of mexicans, from working in the fields to selling flowers on the corner. I'm tired of my children being the minority in their schools. Out of 30 or more kids per classrooms there are 1-3 caucasians and when my son graduated the 6th grade one classroom alone didn't have one single white child in it. That is discouraging. In order to even get a job your chances are slim unless you are bilingual. I want to get to raising my kids and teaching them what the good things in life are from family values to the great outdoors. The outdoors with real trees and fishing. I want to teach them that it doesn't matter what brand of shoes and clothes you wear that make you cool or popular but that people like you for who you are because of you being yourself. You don't have to have what everyone else does to have fun. I'de rather spend the time tying a string to a stick and making a homemade fishing pole and spending all day trying to catch something on it rather than buying a pole like Bob has next door. I can guarantee with my determinations and personality when I catch a fish on my homemade pole. I've had the best quality time with my son and we'll have a story that we'll talk about for years to come. Thats the life I want to have finishing raising my kids, with fond memories and good times. I'm hoping moving to Georgia will be the right move for our family. I fell in love with the countryside. I miss the rain and trees. I know it will be an adjustment for them but I can't wait to see the change in them for the good.

I've never lived anywhere but White County and never will live anywhere else. My family has been here for generations. I realize that any small town is going to grow and people are going to move here because they think it may be the ideal place to raise a family. The people that fall in love with the idea of small town life need to understand that if they move here then they need to leave it the way they loved it to begin with. Don't try to change what we have worked on trying to preserve. Before you decide to move here please take into consideration the following. 1. We have no big malls,(go to Gainesville or Buford at least 30 to 45 minutes away.) 2. No drive thru Starbucks (try both of the little coffee houses on and right off the square in Cleveland I've heard they are good. 3. No movie theaters (go to Gainesville or better yet the one on Hwy 365 it is pretty close to home. Also, Sautee Nacoochee has a local community center that performs plays and musicals. We also have a place called Black Bear Dinner Theater that has live onstage plays and musicals while you dine and some of the surrounding counties have some really great theaters for plays. 4. No daily newspaper (We love the local newspaper, White County Telegraph that comes out once a week on Thursday and we have our local radio station WRWH that is pretty on top of any breaking news that takes place in the county. Both are online, also 5. No major hospitals in town but very close by to two. Habersham County Medical Center in Demorest, Georgia and Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, Georgia. Both are very good facilities and both are currently undergoing major construction for expansion and improvements. 6. Not many places to eat in town but what we do have are really good. A lot of the goings on in this county are as followed: 1.CHURCH, yes church. A lot of people in this county were raised in church and they are raising their families the same way. 2.Local school activities. Whether it be sports (GO WARRIORS!) or some other academic venture, the people of White County show their support for their children by going to as many school events as possible. 3.White County Recreational Department also has a wide variety of kid sports to participate in. I didn't mean to get all wrapped up in advertising for the community but I just want to make certain that you realize that we are not completely in the sticks as some may think. What our community has to offer is great and we don't mind a little growth and expansion but please don't come here and decide to change everything like others have done before you. They have moved here from other places because they were attracted to the "small town life" and now a lot of these same people are not happy with it and want to change it.

Dillard,Georgia! This place use to be kind of like Canada or Alaska. We use to have some of the best trout fishing in the state of Georgia. It was kind of like a last frontier. But that is all gone now. You use to be able to go on camping trips, hunting trips and go way back in the mountains. And never see a house. But you can't do that anymore. One of these rich tycoons from Atlanta or Florida will have you locked up. Because they come up here and bought all of the property up. So they could build them a housing project on it. Rent them to these illegal mexicans. Yes this use to be a beautiful place over here in north east Georgia. Thanks to the people in southern Georgia and Florida. We have it no longer.

I have viewed all of the Dillard, Georgia web sites. And this is the best one yet. You can get the facts on this site.
Most of the Dillard sites are or seem like are controled by that high priced Dillard House. Tourist attraction. You have to be rich to eat there. I am not throwing off on all of the Dillard family. Just the one's that own the Dillard house restaurant. And the food is really not that great. You can go a few miles further down the road to Clayton, Georgia. And find several restaurants. That have a lot better food. With cheaper prices.

I agree 100 percent. I sent a letter to all of political leaders in the state of Georgia. And I thought I would get a little bit of support on these illegal mexicans coming into the state of Georgia. But I was really surprised by the stupid remarks that I got from some of them. And I voted for some of them. But it want happen again. They wouldn't care if the whole country of Mexico moved over here. Just look around. We got mexican bulldozer operators making ten dollars and hour were a white man use to do it at twenty dollars and hour. You no they was just going to do jobs that we wouldn't do. I new that was a bunch of bull when George Bush said it. I am going to say it again. Just look around, We got Mexicans working in just about ever job in the U.S.
What I really hate is every body that is running for president. Is supporting the dam mexicans. Republicans and democrats.

The road that you take out of Dillard, Georgia. That goes to Highlands, North Carolina. There is a creek. That runs along the highway. It goes through Kelly's private park. They use to stock it with trout about 30 years ago. I notice one of the rich land owners. Had a big crane. Takiing all of the rock out of the stream. Loading them on a flat bed trailer. That is just one more step into messing our beautiful country side up. I thought we was suppose to preserve our natural resources. Not tear them down.
