Newborn celebrates schoolhouse grand opening

The Town of Newborn celebrated the grand opening of its historical schoolhouse Oct. 2 with free lunch and music. Several residents from near and far came back to reminisce about their experiences as students, including Mary Formo, who traveled all the way from Washington.

Formo made the cross-country trip because she spent a few years of her childhood here on a 70-acre farm. She remembers skipping school and hiding in the honeysuckle with her best friend Anne.

When preachers turn funny

Life used to be so simple. Preachers delivered fire and brimstone visions of Hades to scare the pants off people, and comedians pulled down their pants to make people laugh like... well, you know. Both sides lived by the rule that preachers don't throw pies and comedians don't do funerals, but that's all over. My own preacher, Dr. John Beyers, is as good a minister as you'll ever meet, but he's got a character flaw that just galls me: He's funny and he makes people laugh. Well, as a humorist, I'm deeply offended ...

We have been pushing for several months for the city and county governments to either enforce or create ordinances that would "encourage" residents to take pride in their properties.

Our Thoughts: A County Ignored

Here in Newton County we should be excited about the upcoming elections: Polls indicate it will change Congress from being dominated by the left to being dominated by the right.

Digest Drop

Newton County governments might have to slash budgets by another 12 percent to 15 percent next year because of zero growth and a new state bill designed to have property tax assessment valuations reflect actual sales prices on homes.

Newton County Chief Tax Assessor Tommy Knight said Tuesday that a natural decline in property values will account for about 5 percent of the drop. An additional 7 percent or 8 percent decline will be caused by S.B. 346, which requires local governments to appraise property at the price it was sold, including foreclosures and short sales.
