State Road Commission Criticized in 1941


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 8/14/1941.

Nothing for Calhoun

Calhoun county citizens interest in the improvement of a short road to Glenville (county seat to county seat) naturally rejoiced the other day when state newspapers carried a story that a contract had been let for the improvement of what all of us reckoned was the short gap in the Grantsville-Glenville (illegible) road from the Calhoun-Gilmer county line to the Maxwell or Woofter place a short distance above the mouth of Tanner.

It was a danged good story, but as we heerd it last, Johnny, the contract awarded a few days ago by the state road commission calls for the alignment, grading, drainage, base and surface treatment of 3.5 miles of state route No. 5, from Dekalb to Latonia.  Fuccy Bros. were low bidders at the price of $70,344.11.

Nothing has been done for the Gap!

Nothing has been done for the Sycamore-Russett road!

On to De Kalb!
