At least 80 people turned out to protest after a Ku Klux Klan sign was displayed in Dahlonega Thursday. The protesters were not exclusively protesting the KKK. Rumors have circulated that the owner of the shop where the sign was displayed was trying to stir up controversy over the building.
After a Ku Klux Klan banner was removed from a privately owned building on the Dahlonega Square Thursday for violating the city's sign code, a permit for a sign was requested for the same building Friday.
For almost 20 years, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hall County have held a rubber duck derby each year to raise money for the nonprofit organization that helps children and teens, and while the ducks remain the same, this year the event will, essentially, grow up a little.
