Letter to the editor... An embarrassment to Covington

Dear Editor: I am a 78-year-old woman, and I agree with a recent letter in your paper from Mr. Harry Long. When our ladies group goes to a local restaurant with a bar, we see these girls - floozies - in the parking lots. They are half-naked and look like tattooed freaks who just arrived from a Nevada brothel. They act indecently and will wallow all over any man who will let them. I see what Mr. Long was talking about as these women seem to want to sell sex, probably for drugs. These women do all appear to be white and ...

Education ROI

I was talking to a very conservative friend recently about the concern of some Newton County commissioners over the possibility of raising taxes. He pointed out that his children and grandchildren had all attended private school so where was his return on all the taxes that went for education?
