The least we can do

Over the past few weeks we have noticed a decrease in donations coming in the Newton County Sheriff's Office for the inVEST fund. The fund for the highest quality bullet-proof vests for our county's heroes has only grown a bit over $5,500 since Christmas.

All in a Rowe: Feeling good about coming home

We recently moved back to my hometown of Social Circle. We settled in Newton County and started our family about 25 years ago and, until recently, called it home. Momma and Daddy still live in the same spot, as do most of their neighbors, and our little town has grown a lot, but it's still as charming as ever.

We moved in just before Thanksgiving, so we'd barely gotten unpacked and settled in before it was time to start decorating for the holidays. We really enjoyed seeing all the Christmas decorations and lights around town, even though Christmas ...
