A very special Mother's Day

There is one thing that is as certain as anything can be - that our mothers, whether we are close to them or not, will always have a special place in our hearts.

Rotary Day

For 76 years a local civic group has been involved, through its monies and volunteerism, in almost every worthwhile project that has helped Covington and Newton County become the great place that it is to raise a family.

Our thoughts: Newton can be a model

There is no question that we are suffering from a general lack of quality leadership in Newton County at this time. Can that be turned around? We think so, but it is going to take our current leadership to be willing to communicate and cooperate with other community officials to start the process.

Judge Ozburn

We were disappointed - as we are sure his many friends were - that our own Judge Ozburn did not get the nod for the open spot on the Supreme Court. We greatly appreciate Senator John Douglas for nominating him.

Speaking of good family happenings on the Covington Square, we might suggest you stop the Southern Heartland Art Gallery, located at 1132 Monticello St. on the square.

Good for positive growth

We are anxious to see what good work the newly established Covington Redevelopment Authority will accomplish in its formative years.

The goals of the CRA are lofty, but we think if even one of them can be accomplished within the next few years, it will be a great success and make the city even more enjoyable and accommodating. We're not quite sure where to locate a downtown farmer's market or grocery, but we wouldn't mind being pleasantly surprised.

A blessing in Bolton

Communities like ours are blessed to have residents who chose this community to live in out of all the beautiful cities in Georgia.

Some of these people move here because of the ambiance, the traditions, the general peacefulness. When some of these newcomers decide to involve themselves in various groups of their adopted community, they bring with them a sense of pride and excitement.

Sis boom ba

It's been a long, hot summer. For some it has not been the best of summers, but the night air is starting to cool, the humidity is dropping and the start of the football season begins this week.

There is nothing like a battle on the gridiron to lift the spirits melted by scorching summer heat.

The good war

Afghanistan was supposed to be the good war - the one Democrats said we should be fighting instead of Iraq. We heard it over and over again during the presidential campaign, as if to exorcise the image that a Democrat wasn't tough enough to assume the role of commander in chief. Candidate Obama repeatedly called the war in Iraq "a dangerous distraction" from the fight we should be waging and promised to "tak(e) the fight to al-Qaida in Afghanistan and Pakistan." But with a new poll out showing that a majority of Americans now think the war in Afghanistan ...

Our Thoughts... Parental involvement?

Lately, there has been much discussion about the new Newton County theme schools. Unfortunately, most of it has been negative. However, the bad news has been about administration and parental issues rather than academics.

Expensive extracurriculars

In a letter to the editor in Friday's paper, K. Miller made some very interesting points on the escalating costs of students' extracurricular activities, both in our schools and in other community programs.

If you missed the letter, we suggest that you read it on CovNews.com.

Following through

We greatly anticipated the opening of two new Newton County Parental Involvement Theme Schools. This type of teaching atmosphere is, in our opinion, ideal for students striving toward higher education. We applauded required uniforms (that are simple enough for students to wear outside of school). Uniforms put all students on a level playing field so that materialistic teasing is squelched, and uniforms take unnecessary distractions out of the classroom.

Our favorite tenet of the new schools was that parents had to sign a letter of commitment for volunteer service for the school as well as a promise to abide other ...
