Newton BOC Methods Disappointing

The structure of county government was on the Newton County Board of Commissioner's (BOC) agenda again at its Sept. 2, 2014 meeting. It was on the secret agenda of District Commissioner Levie Maddox, that is. As readers may recall, this has been a topic of discussion since February and the BOC has met with experts from both the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) and the Northeast Georgia Regional Commission several times. Representatives of both clearly have indicated that having both a full time commission chairman and a county manager should be changed to improve the efficiency and ...

There is an old adage that legislating in a nasty business, kind of like making sausage. Well I have made sausage before, and it was not nearly as nasty as the legislating I saw last night at the Newton County Board of Commissioners meeting.

Letter to Editor

The Center for Community Preservation and Planning, commonly referred to as the Center, is a non-governmental organization which came into being shortly after the turn of the century. It was originally funded by a local private non-profit foundation, which also owned a large tract of land in what is generally referred to as the Brick Store Community at Ga. 11 and Hwy. 278.

Square has evolved ‘gracefully’

It’s not about ‘ownership’

With regards to a potential decision by the Newton County Board of Commissioners to turn the downtown square over to the City of Covington, we are not talking about ownership.

Don’t ‘reinvent’ the square

The square downtown belongs to all the people of Newton County, Georgia. Even the thought of turning it over the City of Covington angers and aggravates a majority of the citizens in the county. This is not a plan which needs to go forward.

Thank you from Banks County

On the evening of Thursday, Sept. 19 one of our Banks County school buses was carrying a group of FCCLA students to a meeting when the bus broke down in downtown Covington, approximately 70 miles from Banks County when I received the phone call from Dr. Nan Throneberry, the sponsor of our FCCLA club. She was quite upset, not knowing what to do or how to continue from that point, as you might imagine. As the police arrived on the scene they assisted in transporting the group to their meeting as well as facilitating an evening meal at a local ...

Is 'free' really free?

I was intrigued by your article announcing that, thanks to a unanimous vote by our City Council, Covington "will get two or three electric vehicle chargers AT NO COST..." courtesy of a bankrupt national government. There is something strange about a government that can't balance its budget, giving something away "free" that people only buy if there is a subsidy involved – at the production, consumption and use levels.
