Letter to the editor: A wildlifer’s look at the 2050 Plan

While Newton County has an identity, Oak Hill, Oxford, Porterdale, Covington and Mansfield all have their own unique personalities. The people from these communities and the rural lands in between are from somewhere – somewhere with its own identity. Have you ever asked yourself where places like Clarkston, Lithonia, Doraville and other such "towns" start and stop? Folks of my vintage will remember a song from 1974 by the Atlanta Rhythm Section with the lyrics, "Doraville, Touch of country in the city." Really? Exactly where is that "touch?"

Initial 2050 Plan meeting crash and burn

Not a single person, citizen, taxpayer, landowner who spoke or asked questions during the meeting sounded positive in any way, shape, form or fashion about any part of this proposal. With little to go on, these local people shot holes in the plan from almost every angle anyway.

Letter from Harry L. Long

I have known Phil Johnson and Sam (Martin) Hay III for most of my life, and I totally agree with their opposition to the county's "so called" 2050 Plan. I view this plan as a direct attack on an individual's freedom and liberty. I have raised my right hand twice, and each time I took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. Immigrants started pouring into the U.S. (colonies) in the 1600s through today mainly for two purposes: I. To be free and II. To own property in "fee simple." In America ...

Dear Editor:

It’s not about ‘ownership’

With regards to a potential decision by the Newton County Board of Commissioners to turn the downtown square over to the City of Covington, we are not talking about ownership.

Don’t ‘reinvent’ the square

The square downtown belongs to all the people of Newton County, Georgia. Even the thought of turning it over the City of Covington angers and aggravates a majority of the citizens in the county. This is not a plan which needs to go forward.

Thank you from Banks County

On the evening of Thursday, Sept. 19 one of our Banks County school buses was carrying a group of FCCLA students to a meeting when the bus broke down in downtown Covington, approximately 70 miles from Banks County when I received the phone call from Dr. Nan Throneberry, the sponsor of our FCCLA club. She was quite upset, not knowing what to do or how to continue from that point, as you might imagine. As the police arrived on the scene they assisted in transporting the group to their meeting as well as facilitating an evening meal at a local ...

Is 'free' really free?

I was intrigued by your article announcing that, thanks to a unanimous vote by our City Council, Covington "will get two or three electric vehicle chargers AT NO COST..." courtesy of a bankrupt national government. There is something strange about a government that can't balance its budget, giving something away "free" that people only buy if there is a subsidy involved – at the production, consumption and use levels.
