Bear Creek figures come to light

Campaign contributions from Schnabel Engineering to a Newton County commissioner who, along with the rest of the board, will consider a proposal to allow the company to carry out tens of thousands of dollars worth of additional surveys for the Bear Creek reservoir appear to undermine recent county efforts to increase transparency surrounding the project.

Why Thanksgiving?

Is our national observance of Thanksgiving a religious holiday? Where is it mostly celebrated? When did it start? What are some of the ways we observe Thanksgiving?

Cooking with Melanie: Sweet Potato cobbler

"My Daddy loved his Grandmother's sweet potato cobbler. He mentioned many times how he would love to have one like she made. So my sister Emily and I set out to make it for him! After researching recipes, calculating ingredients, and many trials we finally came up with a recipe for Sweet Potato Cobbler. My Daddy was so excited and he loves our cobbler. Even though I never met my Great- Grandmother Smith, it is really cool to bring back and share her memories with my Daddy.

A reason to be thankful

This is the time of year that should be devoted to peace and joy but is really a time of major stress for many people. It is a time, unfortunately, when folks suffer major heart problems.

Questions of character

Beverly Gage, a Yale historian, was researching a biography of J. Edgar Hoover in the National Archives when she came across the infamous letter the FBI had written to Martin Luther King Jr., outlining in the crudest form his extramarital escapades and suggesting, King concluded, that he kill himself: "There is only one thing left for you to do. You know what it is." King did nothing, but the FBI acted. It leaked its dirt to the press.

Thanks and giving

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. A chance to be grateful instead of focusing on gift-giving and gift-receiving. Family, friends, bountiful feasts and football are at the forefront of our minds rather than cocktail parties and gifts. Think of it as a time to pause and give thanks before the whirlwind of December.

Who's next?

They say pressure either makes pipes burst or it makes diamonds. Plenty of pressure was on Newton to follow up the win against Valdosta and solidify the Rams as a program to be reckoned with. The only pressure that showed against Central Gwinnett was the pressure from the Rams' defense.

#FanPhotoOfTheWeek

Newton versus Heritage was all it was hyped up to be, at least in terms of the jawing between the two sides in the crowd.

Although, the fan contest is over, you can still sends us your fan photos for a chance to get the #FanPhotoOfTheWeek in our weekly Sunday edition.
