It’s alive!

After losing their first two Region 2-AAAAAA series against Lakeside and Tucker, it was vital for the Newton Rams baseball team to get a win in game three against Tucker, and not get swept. The sense of urgency was there for the Rams, and with Tucker leaving their game back in DeKalb County, it was a commanding victory for Newton 8-1 against the Tigers. In all actuality it was not a bad week for Newton baseball, though they lost the first two games of the series. Newton lost 4-3 in the first game on March 23, and lost the second ...

City looks at buying more power

Covington is preparing to buy more base power for 2010 through 2015 to last the city until the new nuclear units at Plant Vogtle are in operation. Monday, City Utility Director Bill Meecham recommended the city buy another 5 megawatts of base power from the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia and 5 megawatts of base power from the city of Marietta.

Covington is exploring the long-term power deal so that the city would no longer have to buy power off the market, which fluctuates like any commodity market, Meecham said. For the last several years, Covington has had an energy ...

Crossover day passes

The legislature reached a significant landmark in the 2009 session on March 12, which was the 30th legislative day. That means that it was the turning point for all Senate legislation to be passed and transferred to the House in order to continue through the legislative process. Likewise, members of the House of Representatives worked diligently to send their legislation to the Senate for a chance at final passage. Several important pieces of legislation were voted on this week, but perhaps most significant was the FY 2009 supplemental budget.

Thanks to a cooperative spirit between both the Senate and House ...

Flowers seem to grow on you

Why is it the older you get the more you begin to notice things you really never paid much attention to before? Simple things. Quiet things. Natural things.

It's been that way for me, for instance, with flowers. When I was growing up in Moreland, my Aunt Jessie's yard was the flower capital of the county. People drove from as far away as Grantville, Corinth and Smith City to gaze at the color show Aunt Jessie's yard put on each spring.

Not so fast

It's now more than apparent that the headlong rush by the Obama administration to push our country into socialism is in full swing and apparently unstoppable. The spending bills that have been approved and are in the works are just about ready to break the backs of the hard-working Americans and their families, who have struggled to keep this country afloat during the current economic crisis.

There is a point though where one can take presumed power and go too far with it. The Obama administration is at the threshold of that point as it recently revealed a plan ...

A waste of money and a danger to our citizens

Dear Editor: For those of you who don't know it, the county is spending $1 million to buy railroad track property in the county. This is only the beginning. To pave this 40-mile stretch of "Walking Trails" will cost approximately $20 million.

And heaven only knows how much of our tax dollars to maintain this project over the years.

Class of 3000 LIVE makes the grade

As a parent of a 9-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl, I'm always on the lookout for activities they both can enjoy. So when I learned the Alliance Theatre was going to stage Cartoon Network's "Class of 3000," I was more than excited. After all, my kids watch the cartoon. And anything that has to do with Andre Benjamin, one-half of the musical duo "Outkast," is going to be interesting.
