In response

Dear Editor: ? On Tuesday, Jan. 13 there was a Public Work Session held after the Public Hearing regarding the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. This work session was held at The Newton County Recreation Complex in the B.C. Crowell meeting room.

 At this work session we talked about what was going to be placed on the Jan. 20 agenda. At that time I requested that Marcia Allen give us a financial update at the Jan. 20 meeting. I stated that I believed five working days should be enough time to get any information anyone would need on these additions. I remember ...

Change for the better

Dear Editor: As one of his so called "bleeding heart liberals," I again take issue with Nat Harwell's column: "USA: Beware the USB." Mr. Harwell seems to follow in the footsteps of a Rush Limbaugh, Jerry Falwell or some noted others in diverting attention from the real issues and crises of our country in order to project blame for such on our new president - not without a hint of bigotry, distortion, innuendo, tone-deafness and cynicism. Maybe, just maybe, it takes some assertive, unilateral action on Mr. Obama's part to undo the irrevocable damage that George W. Bush has ...

I made a mistake, I’m sorry

Dear Editor: Thank God that we finally have a new administration that understands ethics and integrity.

 As the new administration begins to fill its cabinet posts, it certainly is refreshing to see that our new Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner, the former head of the Federal Reserve Bank in New York, was asked to explain why he did not pay $43,000 in back taxes while he was at the International Monetary Fund. We have been told, "It was an honest mistake."
