Newton Phone Poll - 10-16-10

The Newton Citizen Poll is a compilation of opinions submitted by readers. They do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Citizen newspapers. If you agree or disagree with something you read here, you may respond by e-mailing Please remember that the Citizen Poll is not a forum for comments either for or in opposition to candidates seeking elective office."This is in response to the last article concerning the Covington Airport. First of all my name is Wayne Digby. As a matter of record I do fit some of the criteria that was mentioned but it is very evident that the writer doesn't know as much as he thinks. Yes, I am retired from the city of Covington, (which means that I cannot go back to work for them), and the newspaper stated that Mr. Passariello is an engineer and a pilot who was hired by the city of Covington as the 'Airport Manager.' Also the state Legislature granted the formation of an Airport Authority, which is a separate government agency all by itself which does not answer to the city of Covington or Newton County.

Police ID body

The Covington Police have positively identified the woman found dead in a wooded area on Washington Street Wednesday evening as 59-year-old Beverly Newman. See Saturday's Newton Citizen for a complete article.
