In memory of Mr. Rigney

Basil Rigney was laid to rest today. He was truly a one-of-a-kind educator. In Mr. Rigney's band class, there was no coddling, and praise was given only if truly deserved. He had a keen sense of each band member's strengths and potential, and he was not one to give up easily!

Letter to the Editor: What I Like About The 2050 Plan…..So far

The 2050 Plan gives us, the citizens of Newton County, a chance to control our own destiny, rather than leaving future growth and development up to those whose primary interest is lining their own pockets. It gives us a chance, as a community, to unite behind a shared vision of what our county should be in the future. Over the past decade, our local governments, school system and water and sewage department have struggled to deal with the adverse effects of accelerated growth and poor development practices. Our residents have been subjected to the undue stress resulting from overburdened services ...

Letter to the Editor: The Mansfield 2050 meeting: Confusion, conflict

Yes, I am a rocket scientist specializing in deep space propulsion. However that is no asset when it comes to understanding the reason for the extreme "Plan." I would like to point out that the sessions are unlike anything I have ever experienced due to the fact there are no objective points made by the presenters. It is like, "Hey, it's all good!" And we know better than that.

Letter to the editor: A wildlifer’s look at the 2050 Plan

While Newton County has an identity, Oak Hill, Oxford, Porterdale, Covington and Mansfield all have their own unique personalities. The people from these communities and the rural lands in between are from somewhere – somewhere with its own identity. Have you ever asked yourself where places like Clarkston, Lithonia, Doraville and other such "towns" start and stop? Folks of my vintage will remember a song from 1974 by the Atlanta Rhythm Section with the lyrics, "Doraville, Touch of country in the city." Really? Exactly where is that "touch?"

Initial 2050 Plan meeting crash and burn

Not a single person, citizen, taxpayer, landowner who spoke or asked questions during the meeting sounded positive in any way, shape, form or fashion about any part of this proposal. With little to go on, these local people shot holes in the plan from almost every angle anyway.

Letter from Harry L. Long

I have known Phil Johnson and Sam (Martin) Hay III for most of my life, and I totally agree with their opposition to the county's "so called" 2050 Plan. I view this plan as a direct attack on an individual's freedom and liberty. I have raised my right hand twice, and each time I took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. Immigrants started pouring into the U.S. (colonies) in the 1600s through today mainly for two purposes: I. To be free and II. To own property in "fee simple." In America ...

Hay: Land use plan from hell

What is on my mind and the minds of many other Newton County citizens is the plot by a small group of people to pull off a new zoning plan to severely restrict what you can and can't do with your own property.
