How would you feel?

Dear Editor: I just wanted to take a moment to express my outrage at your coverage of the Owenby family situation last week. I realize that once you call 911 that statements and facts that you share become "public record," but that does not mean that you should have embarrassed this poor young man (who obviously is having a mental crisis) with all of the details that you printed. This young man is not a celebrity, and has some rights to privacy. I was not sure if I was reading The Covington News or the National Enquirer?

Fair market value

Dear Editor: In regard to the letter to the editor published Dec. 16, I want all the citizens of Newton County to know that the Tax commissioner does not set the values on any motor vehicle. The valuations shown are values determined by the Revenue Commissioner of the State of Georgia, using a combination of fair market value and wholesale value. Values are arrived at by using a variety of market guides that are available. This information is on the Department of Revenue Web site at www.dor.ga.gov.

Another best kept secret

Dear Editor: I read with interest your series on Newton County district by district. As the writer traveled to the county's southern border, the FFA Camp was highlighted as one of the county's best kept secrets, and it is (The Covington News, Nov. 25).

I want to point out that three miles before you get there is yet another best kept secret, so secret it wasn't even mentioned. Just off Ga. Highway 36 on Scout Road is Bert Adams Scout Reservation. This beautiful 1,200-acre property has been serving the Boy Scouts of the Greater Atlanta Council ...

Hollow promises

Dear Editor: This January will mark the 39th year of purchasing license plates and or decals for my personal vehicles. From 1970 until this week, I can honestly say that the value of any particular car or truck has never increased. I have bought tags in DeKalb, Rockdale, and for the past nine years, Newton. Not this year. Even though the millage rate is the same as last year, the ad valorem tax increased by $11.07, and thusly a cost increase for the 2010 decal. We stopped by the tag office today for an explanation. The lady on duty ...

A Twilights thank you

Dear Editor: As co-chairs of Twilights at Chimney Park, we wanted to thank the Covington community for their support of Friends of Newton Parks' second Twilights event. Many individuals, organizations, and businesses contributed to this magical evening.

Thank you to Abigail Coggin of the Arts Association for planning music, Berry Christmas Tree Farm for the beautiful Christmas trees, Newton Electric Supply and Moseley Electric for new lighting features, Bonanza Productions for their generous donation and Summit Printing for posters and stickers.

Embarrassing the illiterate

Dear Editor: Illiteracy is widespread in our county and our country. I encourage you to read up on its many causes and its devastating effects. I am confident that if you had done this before publishing Commissioner Henderson's letter you would have made a better editorial decision.

Harwell's homerun

Dear Editor: Nat Harwell's recent op-ed on our Commander In Chief's bailout on the matter of reduced additional troops in Afganistan, with the caveat of a timed set withdrawal, is a homerun and should be easily understood as gospel by any with the gumption to read it. Obama in one of his famously felicitous, and read, speeches was enthusiastically cheered by his leftist supporters and worshipful followers, unreproached by the media and yawned by those forced to sit through it at the Military Academy. It seems that we are getting one of his jet blasts nightly now. Will ...

Toys for Tots

Dear Editor: Each year the Newton High School Marine Corps Junior ROTC program assists the Marine Corps Reserve in collecting new toys for local families in need as part of the annual Toys for Tots Drive. We are asking local industry and business leaders to be part of this effort.

The cadets in the JROTC program and their parents will be in the community asking for any assistance that is appropriate for the circumstances of your business. They will present this letter as a means of introduction and ask for your assistance. Below are some ideas for you to consider ...

Much appreciated

Dear Editor and friends at The Covington News: Words are not possible to express my appreciation for everything that The Covington News did to make the Covington Fire Department's 100th anniversary celebration possible and a huge success.

Without the vision and abilities of everyone involved in the planning, selling ads for the supplement, providing the refreshments and the newspaper coverage before and after the event, the celebration would have not been possible. Because of your efforts, even with the inclement weather, the community showed their support with attendance numbering over 100 persons.

More competition

Dear Editor: Thank you, but no thank you. Is there anyone around who remembers passenger trains? That was before the 1940s and 1950s, before the government "helped" the railroads through over regulations.

Does anyone remember when an airline ticket to Europe cost the equivalent of several thousand present day dollars? That was before the government stopped helping the airlines through over regulation.

Electing idiots

Dear Editor: I would like to thank The Covington News for posting the letter that Commissioner Henderson sent to the DCA; however, I wish there was a way that we could require everyone who lives in this county to read it. The letter was sad and an embarrassment to him and this county. I would venture to say that my 4th grade son could have done a better job writing that letter. The citizens of Newton County and any other county in any state will continue to have unbalanced budgets and trivial problems that hinder real progress as long as ...

Thank you News

Dear Editor: On Sunday, Nov. 22, 2009, the Covington Fire Department celebrated its 100th anniversary. I would like to thank the Covington News and its staff for helping to make the public celebration possible. As the wife of a City of Covington Firefighter I was deeply touched that the Covington News published a special supplement on the Covington Fire Department as well as providing refreshments for the celebration. The brave men of the Covington Fire Department put their lives on the line each and every day for us and I'm sure it means a great deal to them to ...

Another town hall

Dear Editor: This was my second town hall meeting with Congressman Marshall and I believe I now have a good impression of the person and his philosophy about politics and how he approaches the same.

Letter to the editor - Show a little class

Dear Editor: After reading the Josh Briggs' article concerning the refs. ejecting two coaches from Eastside vs. Franklin Co. I just want too say how disappointing an article that was. What is the lesson we are trying to teach our young people? When things don't go our way, we will use our newspaper to complain? Mistakes might have been made by the officials, mistakes were made from our sideline by not controlling our mouths, but the biggest was made by Mr. Briggs for writing the worst article I have read in my lifetime. We have great kids at Eastside ...

Raising awareness

Dear Editor: November is National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. I encourage you to visit www.knowitfightitendit.org to learn how to take action against the fourth leading cause of cancer death in our country. With your help, we will increase the number of our community volunteers and advocates, and urge them to raise awareness and help us raise the cure.

By the end of this year, this deadly disease will have claimed more than 35,000 loved ones. Among them notable American's including actor Patrick Swayze, NCAA President Myles Brand and NBA Hall of Fame coach Chuck Daly.
