Learn from history

Dear Editor: I felt the need to respond to so many of the editorials I've seen lately espousing that we need higher taxes. In talking with many, I have found they fall in to two groups. Those that truly do not fully understand economics and those who understand very well the negative impact it will have but feel we should do it anyway because, "it's the right thing to do."

Uneven perspective

Dear Editor: In the "Our Thoughts" section of Sunday's paper it stated "the news media took great delight in showing the Palin effigy, but they did not demand this disgrace be taken down."

Letter to the editor... The Golden Calf

Dear Editor: I had lunch with a pastor friend of mine from Walton County whom I had not seen since we moved to Covington almost two-and-a-half years ago. He told me of a sermon he preached recently. The Bible story on which it was based is found in Exodus.

Letter to the editor... Respect my rights

Dear Editor: During this election year, I have often been overwhelmed with a sense of pride and gratitude at being an American. I was born here - I didn't have to make the difficult choice of leaving country and kin and have to resettle in a new place. I have even had the good fortune of living in the same area for over 30 years.

Reaffirming nod

Dear Editor: My husband and I recently and reluctantly started a new subscription to your newspaper. Our first paper was received on Sunday, Oct. 19. When I read your editorial "Our thoughts…Misplaced priorities" it was like a reaffirming nod that this subscription was a good thing.

Citizens for tax relief?

 Dear Editor: I formed a group named Newton Citizens for Tax Relief some two years ago. Since then we have worked with the School Board and the Board of County Commissioners to increase the homestead exemption for seniors. The School Board saw fit to let the voters of Newton County vote on a $10,000 increase in the senior exemption, and it passed by 78 percent in February.

 The County commissioners then voted to let voters decide if seniors could have a $10,000 increase in their property tax which will be voted on Nov. 4.

Give me a break

Dear Editor: This week, there is in a local newspaper a real good article, about an additional increase in the homestead exemption for the property owner's of Newton County, that is over 65 year's old and has income of $25,000 or less per year, that will be on our Nov. 4 ballot for the senior's of Newton County.

The article went on in detail, of how much it would cost each taxpayer of the county per year in additional tax. The article quoted our chief tax assessor Tommy Knight, as saying that it will cost each ...

Letter to the editor

Dear Editor: After spending a considerable amount of time in an interview with Rachel Oswald expressing my position, I regret having to write this letter to set the record straight.

McCain signs stolen too

Dear Editor: Two weeks ago on my street, Wood Street in Covington, my neighbor and I had our McCain yard signs stolen. My neighbor purchased a new one and I replaced mine in defiance against the trespassers/thieves of a 4x4 sign.

Two-faced Handel

Dear Editor: I am a relative newcomer to Newton County, and am fascinated by local politics as exhibited by recent events reported by The Covington News. I read with interest the letter last Friday, which states the writer's opinion that the News is biased in the 5th District Commissioner's race. I had not been given that impression, and thought the Editor's note explained the situation satisfactorily.

 I have personally been perplexed by the Secretary of State's assertion that she does not have jurisdiction over county commission races. Does she only have jurisdiction over statewide offices, such ...

To the zealots who stole my Obama sign

Dear Editor: I figured they probably didn't look on it as stealing, more as a practical joke, when late Friday night they took my Obama sign off its frame and replaced it with a McCain/Palin one. That's a good one. Having watched their convention, I can see their sense of humor is on par with their dancing ability. (OK, to be fair, raising their hands over their heads and swaying back and forth was major physical activity for most of those folks, a lot of whom hadn't moved that much since the Charleston was the rage ...

To our senators

Dear Editor: It is with grave concern that I write this letter. It's wonderful that Bank of America (BofA) has agreed to settle the 11-states lawsuits against its new subsidiary, the infamous Countrywide Mortgage Company. I am hugely disappointed - but not surprised - that the great state of Georgia did not see fit to join the initial lawsuit. After all, it was the same great state of Georgia that voted to kill reforms to predatory lending practices in 2003. Can we all spell C-O-U-N-T-R-Y-W-I-D-E here?

 We can say that was in the past but, today, who can forget that past ...
