Wasteful spending

Dear Editor: Today, one out of every two people in this country is living in poverty. Forty-six million are living on food stamps. Two out every five are living below the poverty line. As a matter of fact, worldwide 1.4 billion of us live on less than $1.25 a day; 25,000 children die daily because of poverty.

Celebrate freedom

Dear Editor: In the midst of gatherings of family and friends, fireworks, cookouts and other 4th of July celebrations, it was good to read The Covington News' emphasis on Independence Day. Years of struggle and wars to preserve our freedom were in several features. Of special interest were stories of our own Lt. Col. George Stamps and the pilot who flew 22 fallen Seals home.

Thank you

Dear Editor: We want to thank Hobby Lobby for getting all the information together in the article, "In God we trust," and The Covington News for featuring it in the July 4 paper. That information was just what we needed in these times when so many of our leaders seem to be moving away from our heritage. You and Hobby Lobby have done Newton County and our country a great service, and we are indeed grateful.

Give me true facts

Dear Editor: This is in reference to the letter written by James R. Hays and posted in your July 6 edition, which I find somewhat disturbing. In attacking my supposed ignorance, I can only assume he must be a friend of William Perugino. I re-read my letter to your paper and was unable to find any self-righteous, political or zealotry. In his letter, he stated; "In the future, it might behoove the author of said letter if, instead of attacking in ignorant, self-righteous, political, zealotry, he would take time to at least open a dictionary before he decides that one ...

Columns, editorials and letters all different

Dear Editor: Today I acquired a copy of the July 1 edition and perused its pages to discover any interesting tidbits waiting for one to espy. There were, of course, many interesting foci, from which must could be extracted. When I read the letters to the editor, I observed something I found most perplexing: a letter entitled "Election coverage," written by Mr. Heaton. The author of the letter does not understand the purpose of an editorial.

Let me give you and him a vocabulary lesson. An opinion is a personal view, attitude or appraisal. A columnist is a writer or ...

Election coverage

Dear Editor: In your paper dated Friday, June 29, 2012, you published your Election Season Policy, which stated you do not publish letters written specifically to promote the candidacy of individual candidates or to attack specific candidates on a personal level; this letter however raises some doubt as to what constitutes your conception of promoting or attacking individual candidates.

In your opinion column, an article written by your columnist William Perugino cast some doubt on your sincerity. In Perugino's article, he stated that Obama decided to terminate this act of Congress "S.B. 1070" in order to punish Arizona ...

It's too bad

Dear Editor: June 28, 2012 will go down as a fateful day. It is a sad day because we won't be paying for emergency room care for those bums who don't have health insurance. It means that a big hole in a hospital's budget won't be spread out across every other charge, like $20 band aids. It's all Obama's fault, forcing us to adopt Romney care that was dreamed up by the socialist Heritage Foundation. I want my freedom to have to pay for the uninsured in higher health care costs!

This country is ...

GDOT: A closer look at the proposed sales tax increase

Dear Editor: With the request for additional revenue for the GDOT from the upcoming election to add another penny to the state sales tax, many citizens throughout the State are realizing the GDOT is out of control.

Vision Loss

Dear Editor: I have read that one out of three adults will suffer some form of serious vision loss in their life times. This is a staggering number of people who will need help in the form of technology for the visually impaired and/or counseling on how to cope with devastating loss. I, for one, have been dealing with significant vision loss since I was 30. I don't want to give away my age, but that was 36 years ago. I have not driven a car in over 25 years. I do not recognize people's faces when ...

Eyesores and code enforcement

Dear Editor: I cannot for the life of me understand why the taxpayers allow the city of Covington to selectively enforce the codes. On one occasion, I asked why a complete remodel of a structure two blocks from the code offices did not have a building permit. It was under construction for the better part of a year and every official who works for the city had to have passed it every day.

Board of Education

Dear Editor: I am troubled by the actions of the BOE regarding efforts for teaching Christian principles. Statements by the petitioners and some members of the board indicated that nothing would be required except permission. If there is no involvement of the education system then why appear before the board? By simply doing it after school hours and off campus, then all potential issues are avoided.

Bad side of growth

Dear Editor: I have seen multiple articles, letters to the editor and editorials in the past few months regarding the development of Newton County. Overlay plans, town centers, consultants - all the buzzwords with which I am familiar. You see, I moved to Covington from what it appears we are trying to become.

Alcovy graduation

Dear Editor: On May 4, I learned of a meeting at Alcovy High school, that graduating students were informed by the staff that there would be a pat-down of each graduating senior prior to graduation to assure that no beach balls, cell phones or car keys were brought into the graduation area. I sent an email that night to all members of the Board of Education and to the superintendent asking if this was the policy of NCSS and who made the decisions to do pat-downs?
