Letter to the editor... The deal with seatbelts

Dear Editor: I don't understand the law for seat belts. Once, people in trucks didn't have to wear seat belts but, now they do. How can people ride on the back of a truck and even stand up? What about people on motorcycles who have no seat belts?

Letter to the editor - Newborn and Porterdale Play Smart with Railroad

Dear Editor: The city councils of Newborn and Porterdale have shown the kind of leadership and vision that the city council of Covington sadly rejected in a vote that the Covington News editorial board wisely opined as "taken for political reasons only." By entering into a non-binding agreement with the Norfolk Southern Railroad, Newborn and Porterdale will be able to continue exploring the potential purchase of the abandoned NS rail line through our county. With the support of the Newton County Trails-Path Foundation Inc., they hope to preserve an important transportation by-way through our beloved county.

Letter to the editor - Remembering Coach Crowell

Dear Editor: I just wanted to express my sympathy to the family of Billy Crowell and to all his friends and loved ones in Newton County. B.C. was one of the very few mentors in my life, and his devotion to the kids of Porterdale (I am proud to count myself among that group) was unparalleled. Being tall for my age and having played "back alley" basketball every day of my life at the home court of Spencer and Quinton Boyd, Coach Crowell allowed me to start playing on the school team when I was in sixth grade. It ...

Letter to the editor - Mike, Mack and Main Street

Dear Editor: The July 3rd band festival on the Square will go down as one of the high points of summer in Newton County, in my opinion. Well over 1,000 people packed the area and enjoyed a wide range of local music until well after dark. It was a free and family-oriented event, but also a community-building event that brought together all ages in a beautiful and safe setting in the heart of town. We were all just friends and neighbors drawn together by the pure enjoyment of good music that afternoon. Retailers and restaurants on the Square might ...

Letters to the editor: Hats off to Porterdale

Dear Editor: I would like to express my thanks to the city of Porterdale for stepping up to the plate and providing Newton County with a great fireworks show.

Letter to the Editor: No round-about needed

Dear Editor: In reference to Brenda Lazenby's letter in the June 27 paper, I applaud her. We are not St. Simons Island or Bend, Oregon. We do not need a round-about at Turner Lake Road and Clark Street to confuse people. We only need turning lanes.

Letter to the editor: Response to Morgan’s “Visionaries”

Dear Editor: There are a number of people here who want to be in the clique, so they go along to get along. These people, in total, based on all the information available, probably number less than 50 of our citizens - most are newcomers who want to change everything we are to something we are not and never will be. The other, nearing 100,000 residents, would like for you miniscule minority to know If we wanted Manhattan, we would be in Manhattan. What we want is Mayberry and we like it that way.

These visionaries have tried to make ...

Letter to the editor... Front page not-news

Dear Editor: The Covington News must be in dire straits to have to resort to the front page headline of June 25, Friday. Sex with a horse? What's a parent to say when an 8-year-old asks, "What's beastiality?" This article, if it had to be published, could have been hidden in the back pages. Better still only in the arrest logs where it belongs. In the words of the famous Travis Tritt, "Here's a quarter, call someone who cares."

Letter to the editor... What is news?

Dear Editor: Josh Briggs' column in Sunday's paper was obviously prompted by protests over Friday's headline story. And while it may be news, to have it the lead story in prominent font makes the News look like the National Inquirer. The Citizen did a tasteful low key story on the subject, while yours looked like sensationalism. And while most 6-year-olds do not read the paper, children just a few years older do and this one would be especially difficult to miss the way it was emblazoned across the top of the first page. Had the second headline been ...

Letter to the editor... Offensive story

Dear Editor: The Covington News must have been mighty desperate for a headline news article on Friday, June 25. How offensive the article "Man charged with bestiality with 3 horses" was even with your warning. Even if I were not a sensitive reader, I find this very disturbing. Do you not have better reporting to do? Why should anyone even get paid to do this kind of article? Do you not realize that sometimes children read your paper for current event projects? Shame on you! I can't believe that you would approve this article. You owe an apology to ...

Letter to the editor... Giving away the economy

Dear Editor: Please allow me to respond to a rambling letter from Roy Everitt printed June 23. He expounds on what he perceives as knowledge, wisdom and great intellect possessed by a group he refers to as academic. Everitt refers back to the Great Depression and World War II to support some of his contentions.

Letter to the editor... Visionaries

Dear Editor: In last Friday's column, I wrote of some Newton Countians and their dreams for this community. They provided plenty to think about. That same day, the Covington News ran a story about local resident Molly Bachtel and the Vampire Diaries film sites tour she's launching around Covington and Newton County meant to bring more tourists to town. I'd call her one of those visionaries with big dreams for this community. Best of luck.

Letter to the editor - Who thought of that?

Dear Editor: Whose brilliant idea was it to put a roundabout on Turner Lake Road? Taxpayer money is being spent at the tune of several hundred thousand dollars for what? This is only going to cause more congestion in that area. Taxpayer dollars can pay for a roundabout at Turner Lake Complex, but not a red light in Porterdale (Crowell Road and Ga. Highway 81 intersection) where traffic is backed up every morning and every afternoon for as far as the eye can see? Please enlighten me on this issue, for as I see it now, money is being spent ...

Letter to the Editor: Mass consensus

Dear Editor: Regarding reader Roy Everitt's recent letter about pressing issues stifling America today and in the spirit of our cherished notion of cognitive egalitarianism, I would opt for one of the issues presented him in the survey, i.e. an unwinnable war, the debt, energy dependence, etc.

Letter to the Editor: Please help C.A.R.E.

Dear Editor: C.A.R.E., a Community Assistance Relief Effort in Porterdale, was organized in December 2009 to assist families in the city who were about to have their utilities disconnected. To date, C.A.R.E. has helped a number of families with their bills as well as providing food, furniture and some appliances. In March 2010, C.A.R.E. joined with a local food bank and was able to distribute food to approximately 500 families.
