Letter to the editor: Misguided

Dear Editor: Friday's editorial about a potential millage rate increase is yet another example of a disturbing trend in the News' editorials of recent months.

The editorial blatantly misrepresented the facts involved in an attempt to support the News' blanket opposition to any and all tax "increases." The truth is that this moderate millage rate hike is not a net tax "increase." The higher millage rate will be roughly offset by declining property values and assessments. Moreover, you know this. Or at least you should. Your own coverage of the Board of Education meeting pointed it out ("Tentative Budget ...

Letter to the editor: County champion

Dear Editor: I would like to share my positive sentiments about Mort Ewing, 1st District county commissioner. Mort is a long-time friend of mine so my comments are admittedly biased. Nevertheless, I am long overdue at publicly thanking him for the wonderful job that he has done as a Newton County leader.

Over the years Mort has consistently worked for the good of the citizenry of our county. His motives have always been totally unselfish. His agendas have always been clear, honest and well articulated. I and others have not always agreed, but there is never any dispute who knows ...

Letter to the editor: Professional public safety

Dear Editor: One year ago the city of Oxford entered into an agreement with Newton County for the county to provide fire and emergency medical service for the city of Oxford. This arrangement was initiated by Oxford because the Newton County Fire Service had grown and the quality of its equipment and personnel was superior to what Oxford was capable of providing for itself. This consolidation of an essential public service has been successful and beneficial to both the county and Oxford. The level of expertise and professionalism in the Newton County Fire Service is an asset that we recognize ...

Letter to the editor: Try cutbacks instead

Dear Editor: To lay off 100 more county employees prolongs the recession, could add to foreclosures and will wreak havoc on families. Instead, why not cut work time and pay by 20 percent (or whatever percentage does the job) across the board. The county saves and no one loses a job. Maybe services are slower; they would be anyway with the layoffs. Most everyone can cut back 20 percent, I know as I have.
