Letters to the editor: Better understanding

Dear Editor: Let me first say thank you so much to Newton County Board of Education for helping put sports back into the middle schools and I would like to apologize for thinking that the board was just letting us talk at Alcovy. When I came to that first meeting, I didn't think anything could be done. However, I wanted to teach my son that if you truly believe in something, you should do whatever it takes to fight for it. I wanted him to know that there is a right way and a wrong way. Then after coming ...

Take back our country

Dear Editor: The candidates have qualified to run in the primaries on July 20, 2010. It is now time for the Newton County Republican Party and all those, who wish to rid Washington of the Obama bunch and to take back this country from the nonsense that is going on in Washington, to stand up. We must get ready to clean up the mess that they have caused.

Upset by rezoning

Dear Editor: This week I learned that our subdivision (The Links) which we just moved into last week, was rezoned to Cousins Middle School. This news was quite upsetting to me due to the fact that our house hunt was based on moving into the Indian Creek/Eastside school zone.

I am curious of whether during this time of financial crisis and budget cutbacks if the cost of transportation was taken into consideration. We live approximately 1/2 of a mile from Indian Creek Middle School, but yet these children will now be bussed across town on a daily basis ...

Letter to the editor - Mind’s in the gutter

Dear Editor: I read with interest City Councilman Keith Dalton's response to investing money in The Main Street program. It is reported that he said "he would like to see extra money go toward curb and gutter." Mr. Dalton, how will extra money for "curb and gutter" increase tax revenue for the city? How will that keep and attract businesses on the square?

Letter to the editor - Making a difference

Dear Editor: I am honoring Ocie Franklin, a notable citizen of Covington who gave life-extending help to a down-trodden person for over five years. She showed love and mercy to him when he was without hope by taking him into her meager home. This was a time in his life when most others had ignored his problems - homelessness, alcohol, physical ailments and maybe others. Ocie did this by first taking him to her church, St. Paul A.M.E. on Stone Mountain Street. Here he was received with dignity and love by the pastors and membership. Ocie always told him ...

Letter to the editor - Closing doors behind closed doors

Dear Editor: At the BOE meeting on Tuesday, May 11 there was a large contingent of parents and faculty from Fairview Theme School who were able to speak before the decision was made to close Clements and keep Fairview open. Why was Fairview informed prior to the meeting that this decision would be brought before the board for a vote? Not one person at Clements, including the administration, knew that closing the school was even an issue under discussion or that it would be brought to a vote on Tuesday night.

Great series

Dear Editor: I want to congratulate you for running the series of articles about the local industries. This shows the citizens of this area the importance of having various industries located here. It also allows the employees of these featured companies to take great pride in what they do.

Keep up the good work.

Support staff needed

Dear Editor: Over the weekend I purchased the latest copy of The Covington News. As I was reading through an article by Mr. [Josh] Briggs. He was discussing the financial situation our schools have found themselves having to sort out. He made a statement that the schools did not need bookkeepers because they did not handle the money. My wife has been the book keeper at Eastside High since the day it opened the doors. She handles the money for portions of school bills and keeps up with moneys of all clubs and sports. She looks after all gate money ...

Letter to the editor...How you know you're educated

Dear Editor: The basic problem with U.S. public education is that we have forgotten or never defined just what the objectives are much less the goals of K-12 education. Almost no one knows that the original intent was to create a population who could read and reason enough to make informed decisions when electing [and] voting. That goal has been abandoned in favor of two mutually exclusive goals: malleable consumers and skilled workers for undefined industry.

After 20 years of asking educators, professors, business people and people at various meetings what should be the product of education and getting ...

Inhumane behavior

Dear Editor: Do people realize when they hit and kill an animal that they have taken away something very special? On Sunday night our cat we had for 5 1/2 years was hit by a vehicle and killed. I heard a noise and went outside to find our cat lying in the road dead. No one came to the door to apologize or say anything. I hope they will be able to live with themselves. We don't have any children and this cat was our world. People need to quit going so fast on Duncan Road. I would ...

Baby steps

Dear Editor: The recent events concerning the Dalton Gang and the mayor are very similar to the politics of Washington, D.C. We have two sides, entrenched in their dogma, unwilling to practice diplomacy. A word of advice to both sides: you will always learn more from those who disagree with you than you will from the "yes men" who follow you. Maybe the Dalton Gang is right; maybe we can't afford it right now? But does that mean we could not take some "baby steps" right now and make it a long term project? Is it possible that ...

Rinky-dink rascals

Dear Editor: There are three things people cannot control at their birth: when they are born, where they are born and who their parents are and the names they are given. The Covington News has taken a sickening approach and viciously attacked a local council member based on the name he was given. Your paper has poked fun at Councilman Keith Dalton by using his surname. You are saying he is guilty by association because his name is the same as the famous Western outlaw Dalton Gang. The "out-of-town" owned Covington News (along with its "out-of-town" employees) must think this ...
