Community that cares

Dear Editor: On Monday, Jan. 25, what a parent hopes and prays to be a normal, regular, safe day at school turned out to be one of the scariest days of our family's life. Our son, James P. Norrington, a 17-year-old student at Newton High School, entered his third block class and stated to his teacher that he didn't feel good; the teacher told him to go to the clinic and see the nurse but before reaching the clinic James collapsed in the front office. This is where our life started to change.

James' heart stopped and he ...

Greatest little town

Dear Editor: Dear Social Circle Planning & Zoning Committee Members: I would like to thank each of you for your dedication to the city of Social Circle. I know each of you love and care for Social Circle; otherwise you would not volunteer your time and knowledge for a sometimes thankless job. I know the past several months have been tiresome at times, and I applaud you for your willingness to hear from everyone who has a voice.

I would also like to thank you for making the changes with regard to the rezoning of property. As a county resident, when ...

Letter to the editor...Make your voices heard

Dear Editor: This letter is to all bus drivers, janitors, cafeteria workers and their families of [the] Newton County School System. The school board will soon decide the calendar for next school year. If the board chooses either the 169-day year or the four-day week, then the lowest paid employees will take a significant pay cut of up to 20 percent. You must take action by taking the survey on the school system Web site and contacting all the school board members. The hardest working and lowest paid employees should not have to take such a large pay cut to ...

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.

He is having a meeting with Republican and Democrats this Thursday to talk about what will be in the bill, but Obama will be putting out what he will have in the on bill Monday, Feb. 22. That looks like he has made up his mind about what will be in the bill. That does ...

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 ...

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."
