Impressive leader

We had the opportunity to visit with Dr. Roderick Sams the principal of Newton High School this week. For those of you who have not had an opportunity to meet Dr. Sams we encourage you to do so.

We continue to think he is a breath of fresh air in the education system and will be the change agent that Newton High needs. We also took a tour of the school and it was refreshing to see a clean environment and happy smiling faces of students, who showed respect and discipline.

Deplorable action

Dear Editor: The three district commissioners who voted to retain Tommy Craig as county attorney seriously abrogated their fiscal responsibility not only to their constituents but to the county as a whole.

This is not a broadside against Tommy Craig, but rather a commentary on elected officials who decided to vote for something without having all available information at their fingertips.

A view from the state senate

The 150th session of the Georgia General Assembly opened for business Jan. 12 facing a number of serious issues. The budget, education, healthcare, transportation and water are again at the top of our list. We have already begun acting on these critical issues in the pursuit of making Georgia a state that people are proud to call home.

At midweek, we heard from Governor Sonny Perdue in his annual State of the State Address in which he gives all Georgians a progress report on our state and rolls out his new budget initiatives and legislative agenda for 2009.

Feeling blessed

On Jan. 17 we buried our father. The funeral procession started at Harwell-Wheeler Funeral Home in Covington and ended at Stewart Baptist Church cemetery - 25 plus miles away.

On the way, I witnessed a truly awesome sight. Everyone driving in the opposite direction pulled to the side of the road as a sign of respect and sympathy.
