GAINESVILLE - Due to unseasonably cool temperatures and a forecast of rain, the outdoor Splash Zone at the Frances Meadows Aquatic Center in Gainesville will be closed today. <br />
Because of an expected continued rainy pattern, decisions on its operation will be made on a day to day basis over the weekend. <br />
Would-be visitors should call the center at 770.533.5850 in advance to verify the facility's status. The indoor pools are open and will remain on a normal operating schedule.<br />
Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton President Anthony Williamson said he would speak loudly in order to compete with the noise of construction crews outside the windows behind him. That sort of challenge expresses in a nutshell the story of the new hospital’s burgeoning inaugural year.
