Look out for Newton

Jeremiah Holloman might be the headliner right now for Newton track and field, but look past his individual accomplishments and you'll find a young Newton team that finished fourth overall at state this year.

From fifth to first

When Newton sophomore Jeremiah Holloman placed fifth in the triple jump last year, he did so in disappointment to himself. Malik Franklin a former triple jump state champion for Newton, had been teasing Holloman about it in effort to motivate him. Franklin has a record distance of 48-10 and it's the record Holloman has been shooting for since the beginning of the season.

The other guys

We were young, invincible, and we knew the awful things would happen to the other guy. The war in Vietnam was nothing more than a stumbling block, something our country needed us to do before we continued on with our lives, our educations, marriages, raising rug rats, growing old with a sweetheart. Our tools of war were lethal and high tech, the best bombs and bullets taxpayer money could buy. Turn us loose, let us do what we were trained to do, and we will win this war then bring us home to a grateful nation.

Rowe: The Greatest Daddy Ever

I thought it only fitting to dedicate this column to My Dad in honor of Father's Day. So, let me tell y'all about my Daddy. There's not enough space here to tell the world what an amazing, wonderful, inspiration you are to me, Daddy, and even summing it up with a few short words doesn't begin to give you the love and honor you truly deserve. My Dad is not just the greatest Dad ever, but a whole lot of things to me - most importantly he is my very best friend and buddy and my partner ...

Thanks commissioners

Dear Sirs: It was with much dismay that I read the editorial in Wednesday's Covington News attacking Mr. T. M. Ewing and your reference as "the pseudo leader of the county and his gang." Such a slam is totally unjustified. Obviously, your writer does not know Mr. Ewing.

Harwell: Father’s Day

The touching and, perhaps, true story regarding the origination of Father's Day celebrations in America goes back to the little town of Fairmont, W.Va. There, at the behest of a Mrs. Grace Golden, a ceremony was held on July 5, 1908 honoring some 210 fathers who had been tragically lost in the Monongah Mining Disaster of December 6, 1907.

NHS' Henry a rare breed of student athlete

There's no question our society is in a time of misdirection. Consider this year's graduating class at Alcovy shrunk by roughly 20 percent in four years. In other words, 20 percent of the freshman in that class never graduated. And high school sports stars continue to fall victim to societal laziness and succumb the inherent character flaws that we see in our politicians. Let's face it, whenever you turn around, a politician or celebrity is cheating on his wife, Kanye West is spouting off about Lord only knows what or LeBron James is crying about something his ...
