March 6 - Welcome to your weekend

Recently, Trekkies around the world mourned the loss of the beloved Leonard Nimoy. Not only was he a science fiction icon, he was a poet, director, photographer, singer and science lover. By playing Spock on TV, Nimoy inspired young people to pursue interests in space and the sciences in the real world. Nimoy and his wife supported an extensive list of programs including children's education, museums, art galleries and observatories. We also celebrated the birth of Dr. Seuss, the legendary writer and cartoonist who created children's books like The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax and Green Eggs ...

What would happen if you won an Oscar?

Many of us watched the annual Academy Awards last Sunday night. The telecast started an hour and half before the actual ceremonies, as the various celebrities walk the "Red Carpet" to enter the auditorium. And that was followed by over three hours of music, film clips, speeches, and awards. For those involved in the ceremony, the night was just starting as the telecast ended. There was the Governor's Ball followed by many parties. The major networks featured the awards in their Monday morning programs.

Belton: AP history test ‘lengthy, partisan, leftist’

A disturbing turn of events has occurred with the new Advanced Placement History Test. The AP has been around since 1956, offering high school students the opportunity to gain college credit by taking a very difficult class and passing a very difficult test. Unfortunately, the College Board (the same folks who write the SAT) has suddenly created a biased and left-leaning test.

Jeffares: Senate passes veteran’s bills

Snow flurries, ice and freezing rain threatened to stall business at the Capitol last week, but we were lucky enough to be able to travel safely to continue as scheduled. We passed quite a few bills this week designed to help support and protect the military service members in our state.

You grow to what you are committed to

Our lives are molded by the long term commitments that we make. This is true with the commitments we make to one's family, to one's community and nation, to one's profession, to one's faith and to one's friends. These commitments become the standards by which we judge our decisions; they become the guide posts on our journey through life.

English Tea at Rosewood

Imagine being invited to a true English Tea hosted by six ultrafine and delightful women of Covington! Several of the six ladies' friends and acquaintences were invited with an elegant invitation showing Rosewood on the front of the invite and a formal invitation inside listing the six ladies: "Virginia Ann Hoffman, Cynthia Maloney, Betty McIntosh, Louise Morris, Betty Rawlins and Esther Williams requesting the pleasure of your company for English Tea at Rosewood."

Occupy Atlanta: An inside view

To the editor: I have been involved for almost two weeks now with Occupy Atlanta and have seen many diverse opinions. It is easy to single out a single individual and write about their views, especially if it is to make fun of them and criticize them. I am not saying everyone's views are correct; however, they need to be taken in context.

In every large gathering, you will find a few people with extreme political views, as well as the misinformed and misled. That said, those views are spread few and far between among the American citizens who ...

When felons and quitters won’t do

Lost in the fancy rhetoric of second indicators, confidence intervals and safe harbor live stories of high quality teachers helping students achieve, succeed, and grow. Anecdotes of success, glimmers of hope, ordinary miracles, call them what you like; they are all part of the daily magic of high quality teachers practicing their craft, increasing student achievement, building strong students and future community leaders.

Changes to local government

Changes are coming to county government structures all over the state, and I have made myself a student of those initiatives. As Commissioners, we are educated regarding the Five Forms of Government in Georgia by the Carl Vinson Institute of UGA and the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia. Some changes are the customary "tweaks" for efficiencies and changes due to growth. Many of them involve the institution of a county administrator or county manager form of government in which an administrator or manager is hired by the sitting Board of Commissioners to run all the functions and services of ...

When it comes to teacher-parent relationships, it takes two to tango

Recently, a Newton County teacher shared with me a column authored by Ron Clark, founder of the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta. Entitled "What teachers really want to tell parents," I found it to ring all too familiar as to the sentiments I've heard, in different locations, over the last decade. It's worth airing because, like some things, there are kernels of wisdom in it. So much so that if we don't pay attention, the nation will not reverse the "average" tenure of new teachers - just 4.5 years.

Lease the jail

To the editor: This may be a dumb idea, as I have no idea how the old Newton County Jail is being used, but Fulton County is under a court order to purchase another jail. If our old one still has functional cells, let's sell/lease it to Fulton for $1.00 and bring a couple hundred jobs to the Newton County (and consumers to the city of Covington).

Proud to Present the Newton County Theme School

To the editor: I have been an avid supporter of the Newton County Theme School even before it was a reality. I was interested in the grassroots murmurings about the possibility of a theme school in Newton County even before my child was school-aged.
