Last Sunday we started running pictures and names on our sports pages of local folks taking advantage of our recreation facilities in the area.

We hope you like them; it feels good to print the smiling faces of our local residents, especially our children, enjoying themselves in spite of our tough economy.

If you see folks enjoying the good life here in Newton County, please feel free to send us a picture. You can send them to If you know of some special event happening in our community, let us know so we can be there to cover it for you.

One way to beat depression or stress is to smile. The world is not going to end because we are having tough times and your smile will help all of us remember that.
