Careless Clinton: A new narrative

FBI Director James Comey's remarks regarding then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton being "extremely careless" in the "handling of very sensitive, highly classified information," along with his conclusion that "any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton's position, or in the position of those government employees with whom she was corresponding about these matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation," have the potential to change voters' view of Clinton's intelligence and readiness to lead the nation.

A sit down with the Sheriff

This week, alone, two murders occurred in Newton County, and another person was killed in the city of Covington. Since April there has been two other murders, one a stabbing in the Wesleyan neighborhood on May 19 and one a shooting in Covington on June 19, both by juveniles. In wake of the recent tragedies in Newton County, including several murders that have occurred over the past month, the Covington News sat down with Newton County Sheriff Ezell Brown to get his take on the recent violent crimes, and how the community can band together in this time.

Have You Ever Thought …

I am writing the opening words for this column as I wait to go to the Square to join in our community wide July 4th celebration. It is great to be an American. It is also a great day to recommit ourselves to using the freedoms we inherited in ways that will make our community and world a better place for those who will follow us. The real value of the gift of freedom is the fruit that comes from those who use it wisely.
