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.

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 ...

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."

Can someone explain?

Dear Editor: I have not lived in Newton County very long. I moved here last year to be closer to my daughter and grandchildren. I do not understand the manner in which the city of Covington and Newton County decides how tax money is to be spent.
