SAT

Our much-beleaguered school system appears to be making steady progress as Eastside and Newton high schools both saw their average SAT scores rise in reading and math in 2012, though Alcovy unfortunately saw drops in both areas.

A response to ‘Romney’s class warfare’ article

Dear Editor: Thanks to Mr. Robinson for calling it out loud in his article "Romney's class warfare" in the weekend issue. Even though we merely pay income tax, my husband and I are hardworking people and pay our share in payroll tax (which I consider just another form of income tax), property tax and sales tax. It was simply outrageous what this arrogant person let out at this fundraiser (assuming these 47 percent of "lazy bums" would never get to hear this).

Questioning the BOC

Dear Editor: There is an old saying, probably Southern, that goes like this: "Them that has, gets." To me, this means in general that a person or persons who have clout or influence can often "get" what others who don't have this advantage can't "get".

Remembering The Strand

Dear Editor: Once a week, The News carries a history article on what happened 50 years ago. Sometimes it contains movies that played during that time. Very few people in Newton County are still alive and can relate to this time. The movie theaters were the main source of entertainment in 1953 and 1954. At about this time, Henson Furniture Company and Covington furniture began to sell small screen black-and-white TVs and put them in their windows and turn them on at night. There were no day-time programs. People would bring their chairs and line the sidewalks in front of ...

Akin’s proclamation on pregnancy from rape

Dear Editor: Three things are disturbing to me about the Akin proclamation on pregnancy from rape. One is that it implies that rape victims who become pregnant are really liars and willing participants. That is a myth frequently suggested by rapists in court. Two is that what Akin and Dr. Willkie, his source, assert is true was scientifically disproven by a Medical University of South Carolina study published in 1996 (see http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8765248). Three, that asserting populist hypotheses as fact even when contradicted by data collection and analysis appears to be a Republican tendency.

Letter: Medicare fact or fiction

Dear Editor: I just had a discussion with a 68 year old in Walmart. First, he told the store clerk he was 68, and he could aggravate anyone he wanted to. Then his wife paid for their case of coke, sitting beneath the seat of his motorized cart, with food stamps. I said Romney planned to add an additional $6400 per senior to the cost of Medicare. I had checked it on Factcheck before going to the store. The additional cost of Medicare as currently consituted by the year 2025 was projected to be $6,350 beyond Medicare payments. Under ...

Letter: Debt clock

Dear Editor: Thank you for printing the statistics on the national debt. One very significant aspect of the data is that the working force of the USA is about half the population and therefore those who work for a living owe about $100,000 each, thanks to the irresponsible spending and borrowing of the national government.

The power struggle

Dear Editor: The mayor and the council have once again decided to split the D.P.S., two departments, two chiefs and more dissension. We have tried different chiefs with different ideas. We hired a director with an excellent resume. Most of us thought he would be good for the community. Somehow I guess he did not fit well with the politicians. If we had established a chain of command from day one, we could have avoided plenty of heartburns. A council member suggested that the director should answer to them. They convene one night a month. The D.P ...
