Citizens comments

Those who follow and attend BOC meetings deplore the vote of Nov. 18th to move citizen comments to the end of each meeting. That means the commissioners won't hear from the public until after votes are taken on agenda items. This clearly says the majority of the BOC doesn't care what citizens have to say or think. But wait until the next election. Listen now or listen then.

Dear Fellow Covingtonians,

Have you ever felt like you were in a movie? Meaning that everything was so perfect that it couldn't actually be really happening? Halloween in Covington is like that.

Veterans Day

Dear Editor: As a veteran, I thank you for the great honor you bestowed upon us veterans on Veterans Day. Your newspaper coverage of veterans was outstanding. Veterans and their families and kin make up a large segment of the reading public in Newton County and I believe who they enjoy reading about the stories of the veterans that live here among them. I give special thanks to you for hiring Pete Mecca and providing him a forum to tell the veteran's story. Pete, a veteran himself, knows the true reality of what it is to be a veteran ...

Thank you

Dear Editor: I want to personally thank the citizens of Newton County who live in District 3, for supporting me in my campaign to be their next County Commissioner. Although I wish the outcome would have been different, I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to run in this race. My campaign team worked hard and I believe we left no stone unturned. I am a winner because I did something that I believe in and because I did my very best.

Out in The Country

Dear Editor: "Honey, Daddy and I want you to come home for Thanksgiving dinner with us. Your brothers are hoping to see you this year. You haven't been home for more than two years. Grandma and Grandpa keep asking about you and sure hope you can be here this time. You are our daughter and we love you with all our hearts. Baby, you know we've been over this several times before. No, darlin', we sure hope you don't bring Ann with you. You know how we feel about your partner. And you know what the preacher ...

Act of kindness

Dear Editor: This is the America that I am glad to be a part of. Monday night, I left my wallet on top of my car after getting gas on Ga. Highway 81. I noticed Tuesday it was gone and I prayed that I would either find it or it would find me. On Wednesday, a nice couple brought me my wallet after finding it on the side of a busy road, while the gentleman was on his daily walk.

Do the math

Dear Editor: So Americans have chosen to continue down the road of expanding government scope and power and national bankruptcy (as your "Do The Math" indicated again today). And many who can see beyond "stimulus checks" must have voted for accelerating this direction. Strange. Strange, indeed.

Sloppy journalism

Dear Editor: I don't know if it's called sloppy journalism, headline grabbing to sell newspapers or new to the community editorial staff, but the very idea of that the top of the front page in Sunday's paper says in bold print "Sexual texts" instead of the sad announcement of the passing of a dear, giving, Christian man who devoted his life to the betterment of Covington, Oxford and Newton County.

Another four years?

Dear Editor: By the time this letter will have been printed, our country will have decided whether to commit to socialism and bankruptcy, or whether we begin the long climb back to where we came from. With President Obama's record of ineptness on the economy and reckless forays into foreign affairs, we as a nation are mired in hopelessness.

Letter: What's the election really about?

Dear Editor: This election is not about Democrat versus Republican. It is about capitalism versus Communism and the fundamentally changing of America as we know it. I have asked myself why anyone would want to change a system that has done more for mankind than any other form of government. It is not about what has done the most good; it is about idealism (Utopia). The Communists do not believe in God so they try to create heaven on earth (as they see it).

Downtown Social Circle

City Manager Doug White of Social Circle said the city government has a vested interest in the downtown businesses. Mr. White said other businesses are looking to move into the Covington/Newton County area. So federal tax dollars were used to paint the store fronts. He is hoping that someone will ride through and, perhaps, stop and purchase one of the empty ones. He also mentioned that perhaps some of the Baxter employees could settle here.

What has happened to the Democrats?

Dear Editor: I've always prided myself as being neutral when it came to voting...but can I say that anymore? It really saddens me, but I don't believe that I can. After watching the Democratic Convention, it seems like they have pretty much drawn the line in the sand.

Waiting to vote

Dear Editor: In your "Our Thoughts" column last Wednesday, you encouraged voters to wait until after the presidential debates before casting our ballots. I thought this was good advice.

The more information we have upon which to base our decisions, the better our decisions should be. And like many others, I look to The Covington News as a source of informative news and opinions to help me formulate my decisions.

Mitt Romney falsehoods

Dear Editor: I just read the Letters to the Editor in the Oct. 5 edition.

I was dismayed that you would print such an article filled with so many falsehoods and misrepresentations of what was said by Mitt Romney.

Christianity and the election

Dear Editor: My name is Matthew Ozburn, and I am a senior in high school. I am writing today to express my concern in the diminishing Biblical values in our country.

I believe that Biblical values and morals are what make America the great country it is. The problem is, over the past couple of years I have paid more attention to what is going on across the nation and it concerns me.

Presidential debate

Dear Editor: Governor Romney debated better Wednesday night than President Obama did. Clearly, the president was stumped by the governor's latest recreation of himself. The governor started with the proposition that nothing he had said to date was his real position and that only what he said Wednesday night was true. For me, that presents a credibility problem, but how do you debate against it? The governor also said that, for the most part, he would do exactly what the president had done except all of the laws Congress passed under him would be perfect, unlike the flawed laws ...

SAT

Our much-beleaguered school system appears to be making steady progress as Eastside and Newton high schools both saw their average SAT scores rise in reading and math in 2012, though Alcovy unfortunately saw drops in both areas.
