Massie: Readers don' know history

If liberals and the despitefully misguided and uninformed were as smart as they like to think they are, they would have a better way of showing it.

Waller tribute to benefit Chimney Park

Chimney Park behind the Newton County Library on Floyd Street has a thick canopy of shade trees, fanciful ruins of a once grand home, places to explore, places to be still and listen to nature, or places to read and picnic, but something is missing.

An eighth-grader's take on leadership

My name is Ralph Edward Brown. I'm currently an eighth-grade student at the Newton County Theme School.
