New Dragstrip

Dear Editor: I live in Social Circle, and I have read the article produced by the CCoSC. These are long time residence who fear change but want everyone to change and be like them. I feel differently about the proposed plan, and think it's a wonderful opportunity for our businesses in Social Circle. We need revenue to fund our schools, roads, etc., that has to be paid for by our city. The people who would come in and eat, buy gas, and lodge would be of great benefit to us in my opinion. I think spending $5,000 a ...

What a drag

Dear Editor: Hundreds of Newton County homeowners have Social Circle mailing addresses, but no Social Circle vote. We, like our friends within the city limits, would be harmed if the mayor and city council permit a drag strip to be built within the recently expanded city limits.

Not inhumane

Dear Editor: After reading Linda Cooper's letter about finding puppies and not receiving any help from the Humane Society I had to think for a minute.

Letter to the editor - Stay out of Social Circle

Dear Editor: I would like to comment on the letter sent by our County Commissioners to Social Circle opposing the proposed drag strip. Shame, shame, shame for our Newton County elected officials for getting involved in another county and government's business. But to do it in a letter that they made public is even worse. This probably assures that the drag strip will be built.

The Social Circle and Walton County government is no more going to appreciate the Newton government getting into their affairs than Newton would if it were reversed. What would have been wrong with our ...

Letter to the editor - Lack of help

Dear Editor: A week before Christmas, someone dumped seven Lab pups at the end of the dirt road on Robertson Road in Newborn. First of all, shame on the person who did this. If I had not came along, they would have died in the cold. They left them in an area that has no houses or shelter and has coyotes, wild animals, etc.

Letter to the editor - Double standard

Dear Editor: There is a double standard in Washington D.C. The double standard is that Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said in a book that Obama is "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." If that is not racist, I do not know what is, and Reid's not having to step down from being Senate Majority Leader is a double standard when Sen. Lott lost his leadership post.

Letter to the editor... Robbing from the poor

Dear Editor: I emphatically agree with the previous opinions where disgust was shown for the manner in which our local elected officials are spending money. If our local Chamber of Commerce can't support itself, then why don't they just close their doors and go home like other businesses have to do? Why are they running to the city and county governments looking for a handout like a bunch of moochers? I also don't agree with money being spent on fancy houses for the Recreation Department, trails being paved and parks being built. A fraction of this money ...

Letter to the editor... Waste of resources

Dear Editor: My sister had a minor traffic accident over the holidays and I happened to be in the area right when it happened and waited with her for a sheriff's car to arrive. When we called, we told the 911 operator that there were no injuries. A little while later two big Newton County Fire trucks arrived. Being a retired firefighter from another state, I struck up a conversation with one of the county guys. I was curious as to how the call was dispatched since we told 911 there were no injuries. The firefighter explained to me ...

Letter to the editor... Congrats Judge Wynne

Dear Editor: On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to congratulate District Attorney W. Kendall Wynne Jr. on his appointment by Gov. Sonny Perdue as Superior Court Judge in the Alcovy Judicial Circuit, covering Newton and Walton counties.

Unacceptable

Dear Editor: I am appalled at what I am hearing tonight on ABC News about the Muslim young man who attempted to blow up a Northwest Airlines plane. He bought his ticket on December 16, paying over $3,000 in cash for his ticket - red flag number one. He boarded the international flight with no luggage -red flag number two. This after his father turned him in as a militant Muslim - red flag number three. Our federal government is dysfunctional. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue...it has nothing to do with who is in the White House ...

Strange bedfellows

Dear Editor: I am a newcomer to the Covington area, and I am baffled by the city and county funding the local Chamber of Commerce. It seems to me this action could constitute both unethical and unsound economic behavior. In Newton County, the chamber seems to be placed on some type of pedestal while in other parts of the country where I have lived, they are referred to as "the $3.35 an hour boys." It should be noted that at a recent job conference President Obama didn't even seem fit to invite the national chamber.

Successful parade

Dear Editor: On behalf of the Main Street Covington Board we wish to express our appreciation for everyone who made the 2009 Covington/Newton County Christmas Parade such an overwhelming success Dec. 5.

The Covington Lions Club, with assistance from the Oxford Lion's Club, did an outstanding job of facilitating the parade. From promoting the parade, to the long hours that went into creating the parade line up, managing the lineup, to organizing the judging and hosting the viewing stand in the downtown the club successfully managed every element of the parade. Special thanks to Ed Minge who has ...

No fluff in fair

Dear Editor: At the Dec. 15 meeting of the Newton County Board of Commissioners I voted no to an immediate allotment of $120,000 to the Chamber of Commerce. This prompted some people to question my absence from the presentation the chamber gave to the city and the county on Nov. 19. I would like to provide the people of the county with my perspective about this issue.

First, the Nov. 19 meeting at The Center for Preservation & Planning was not an announced or advertised "work session." Any official meeting involving government leaders that is sanctioned by the county has ...
