Our thoughts: Bear Creek

Some good decisions by Newton County in the past have led to a current situation where we have a reliable water supply. The supply is such that if the theoretical doors of the county were to be shut right now, we probably would have plenty of water for the use of our children and grandchildren.

Some Sunday thoughts

"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual - or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country."

Our thoughts: Motion denied

At Tuesday's Board of Commissioners public meeting, Commissioner John Douglas made a motion to defund The Center for Community Preservation and Planning. Thank goodness there was no second, and this ill-conceived motion died.

Our Thoughts: Political correctness

It seems that over the last six years, we as a country have had to endure one scandal after another; distrust in any government entity is at the highest it has been in most of our lifetimes.

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

DEAR EDITOR: I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, 'If you see it in THE SUN it's so.' Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?

Our thoughts...Trash on our minds

If you've ever spent time in Western states like Arizona and California, then you've probably had a hard time becoming accustomed to the trash strewn along the byways and highways by people who apparently had no respect or concern for the beauty of the land they were defacing. We have been more than pleased by the pride and concern that Georgia residents and government have for keeping our state pristine and beautiful.

Our thoughts...Defiant governor

 If it wasn't enough for Ill. Gov. Rob Blagojevich to have been accused of trying to sell President-elect Obama's open senate seat to the highest bidder - apparently tapes exist of his using foul-mouthed language implicating himself - and not stepping down, then his actions this week certainly earn him the description of "defiant."

Our thoughts...Happy holidays

 Charles Dickens once said this about Christmas: "I have always thought Christmas time, when it has come around, as a good time; a kind forgivable, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and woman are seemingly of one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on another journey."

Our thoughts...A gift from God

 In our Christmas Eve edition, we will be reprinting the most famous Christmas editorial of all time -- "Yes, Virginia There is a Santa Claus."

Don't drink and drive

Tonight is generally considered a night of fun and revelry as people gather to celebrate the end of one year and the start of another. It's a night that sane people sometimes do unsafe things.

It's also a night when people sometimes have a few more toasts of the toddy than they usually do.
