Letters to the Editor

This Week's Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Several weeks ago, just after midnight, my wife fell down the stairs in our house on Burnt Mountain. After picking her up I put her in the car and took her to Piedmont Hospital on 515. She was attended by Dr. Alina G. Barrett who diagnosed a broken nose and a gash that required 17 stitches. Suffice it to say that Dr. Barrett did an outstanding job and when my wife had the stitches removed by a plastic surgeon in Atlanta, he was so impressed with the work of Dr. Barrett that there was nothing further he could or would do.  Three weeks later there is still a small visible, residual scar, but given the extent of the damages, it is nearly miraculous. Thank you, Dr. Barrett!

Yours sincerely,

Peter T. de Kok


Dear Editor:

This is in regard to last week’s article regarding Mr. Jasperese’s appearance before the school board, requesting that they give the matter of the senior tax exemption another consideration.
