Citizens for tax relief?

 Dear Editor: I formed a group named Newton Citizens for Tax Relief some two years ago. Since then we have worked with the School Board and the Board of County Commissioners to increase the homestead exemption for seniors. The School Board saw fit to let the voters of Newton County vote on a $10,000 increase in the senior exemption, and it passed by 78 percent in February.

 The County commissioners then voted to let voters decide if seniors could have a $10,000 increase in their property tax which will be voted on Nov. 4.

Dow jumps 936 as governments pledge bank aid

NEW YORK (AP) -- Wall Street stormed back from last week's devastating losses Monday, sending the Dow Jones industrials soaring a nearly inconceivable 936 points after major governments' plans to support the global banking system reassured distraught investors. All the major indexes rose more than 11 percent.

The market was likely to rebound after eight days of precipitous losses that took the Dow down nearly 2,400 points, but no one expected this kind of advance, which saw the Dow by far outstrip its previous record for a one-day point gain, 499.19, set during the waning days of the ...

Getting what you pay for

The governor and Georgia Legislature are scrambling to balance the budget, looking at a potential $1.6 to $2 billion deficit. The state is required legally to balance its budget and can only do so by cutting services or by taking out loans to cover the deficit. The amount that can't be cut from the budget will come from the pockets of Georgia taxpayers - you and me.
