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 ...

Neighborhood has infuence

I would like to respond to a letter in the July 24 edition of The Covington News in which 14 families came to the defense of Councilman Keith Dalton concerning his ethical problems. The letter was short on substance and long on rambling, rhetoric and back slapping along with a grandiose description of their neighborhood while belittling their neighbors in the Covington Place subdivision.

At least half of the residents in the Flat Rock Trail area of Covington have lived here for over 40 years. Those who have been here for awhile are happy to see younger families moving to the area.

The struggles of the unemployed today

I just finished reading the article dated June 30, 2013, about the employment and unemployment in the county and state. As one who is unemployed, I have something to say.

Letter: Food pantry stocked again

The shelves at the Community Food Pantry are full and there are lots of "thank yous" to go around. First, thanks to The Covington News for the front-page story. Once our community was aware of the need, the food donations soon came through our doors.

Council actions troubling

There are two actions, one taken and one on the table of the city council. The council has given themselves, including the mayor, a 50% pay raise. The proposal that is on the table would cut the property tax millage rate by half a mill.

Proposed Bear Creek Reservoir scrutiny:

With the proposed reservoir nearing the construction stage, there has been no protection for the citizens'/ratepayers' protection provided by the Newton County Board of Commissioners.

Letter: Band director will be missed

The past five years, I have watched the Alcovy Tiger band improve; that is thanks to one man who has come to work on his furlough days (that is days the BOE did not pay him and other teachers) with students to prepare them for the upcoming football season.

Our holy and heavenly God gave everyone the chance to make the ultimate decision: to select Jesus as the Lord and Savior of our souls. It is our decision to choose Jesus. His love is it.

Letter: Don’t take our guns

To the editor: Our great nation has made many enemies over the past several years. Since the world's largest Army is comprised of U.S. citizens, who stand ready to fight and defend our homeland, there is no reasonable excuse for anyone to want to disarm our homegrown militia, except our enemies who wish to destroy our free nation. As far as Congress is concerned, as well as state and local governments, there are much more urgent tasks and responsibilities to be dealt with than wasting time and taxpayer dollars trying to circumvent the Second Amendment to the United ...
