Letters to the editor - Resurrected

Dear Editor: The Health Care Reform Bill is back. That is that Obama is trying to get it passed again. He said at the State of the Union that he would like to work with the Republican and Democrats.

Care and committment

Dear Editor: It was a rainy Tuesday. The office was full of patients when the cries of panic came. "Patient down, come quick." "We need Dr. Carter's help."

I offered my assistance. I knew my role would be limited, but I was willing to help. What came next was nothing less than a miracle. I traveled down the stairs and looked through the glass. I saw Dr. Carter on his hands and knees, in the pouring rain, kneeling beside an elderly gentleman checking for a pulse and any other signs of life. When no signs of life were found ...

Letters to the editor - Too Close to Home

Dear Editor: My family is very opposed to the drag strip that is to be built in Social Circle because the location surrounds many residents. I have read several comments in newspapers from people who live close to existing drag strips. People state they live three, four, or five miles away. Mind you, they say miles. Not once have I read, heard, or know of anyone whose kitchen table is within 100 feet of the proposed strip. Yes, I said feet. Ten or more of my neighbors live within 100 yards. One hundred, more or less, of my neighbors live ...

Letters to the editor - The Wrong Direction

Dear Editor: I am compelled to offer my views on the proposed "Motor Sports Complex" (Sounds nice, doesn't it? Something like lipstick on a DRAGSTRIP) being proposed in Social Circle.

Upset about CAC

Dear Editor: After reading the story about the Covington Athletic Club in The News dated Feb. 7, there was no way that I could not respond. As a member of that club for 15 years, it was indeed like a place where you felt like family when you entered, with a staff that was the greatest and the friends that were made there were priceless.

Examples of civility

Dear Editor: I have grown weary of the tenor of political debate on the airways, the internet, and in print. The "silent majority" remains silent because they don't want to be drawn into the ugliness of the current climate of "conversation." As the saying goes, "don't wrestle with a pig, because you both get dirty and the pig likes it."

Can someone explain?

Dear Editor: I have not lived in Newton County very long. I moved here last year to be closer to my daughter and grandchildren. I do not understand the manner in which the city of Covington and Newton County decides how tax money is to be spent.

Not a podunk area

Dear Editor: I am writing concerning the proposed drag strip which if built at the juncture of I-20 and Highway 278 would be less than three miles from my home on Cannon Drive in Social Circle.

Letter to the editor - Point of no return

Dear Editor: Make no mistake about it, in my opinion, vehicles that race on drag strips are designed and built to do two things: they make an incredible amount of noise and they go extraordinarily fast. Pertaining to drag racing, speed and noise go hand in hand. You do not have one without the other. Regardless of how many noise engineers are consulted and no matter how you spin it, drag strips are built in wide-open spaces and the noise from the vehicles adversely affects the quality of life for people for miles around. The noise level from these drag ...

Letter to the editor - Senseless coverage

Dear Editor: The article you printed Friday, Jan. 14 on the front page, "Members of Judges's Family Sentenced in 2008 Fight," was totally unnecessary. Why humiliate individuals again, more than a year later? Yes, what happened last December was not appropriate behavior, but that was last year. Why reprint a detailed summary on the front page with pictures. This is old news. What purpose did it serve? If you thought it was necessary to report the results of the court hearings, you could have written a short article on an inside page without pictures. Do you print the results ...

Letter to the editor... Congrats KCNB

Dear Editor: I just finished reading the KCNB supplement in Sunday's Covington News. Wow, what an outstanding organization. I particularly enjoyed the older photographs. Clearly, KCNB has been ahead of its time for many years.
