Covingtonian 1 year, 4 months ago on Prisoners briefly escape custody at Newton County Sheriff's Office

Woods attorney could use the defense that his client was going after some "heart healthy" cheerios before bedding down for his stay in our fine facilities. Or maybe he was hoping to fine some magically delicious "lucky charms" to get him out of the jam he found himself in. Mr. Wright was totally wrong.

Covingtonian 1 year, 5 months ago on Maurice Carter to run for city council

As of my post there has been six previous comments and half of them had to do with the way the man looks. Incredible! This is Monday the 15th and I'm still waiting for the citizen to publish something on a current city councilman who has a business but hasn't seen the need to get a business license or follow the rules about parking at said business located within the city limits. Do as I say and not as I do should be his next campaign slogan

Covingtonian 1 year, 5 months ago on Deen's ex-husband: Former employee motivated by greed

Oh yeah the remark Ms. Deen made "I is what I is" is from a deragatory joke that goes:There was a black guy and a white guy. They were debating over whether god was white or black. The white guy said that there was only one way to find out and that is to pray. So they go up on a hill and they pray, and pray, and pray. Finally they hear a voice say, “I am what I am.” The white guy jumps up, and says, “Aha, I told you he was white.” The black guy jumps up and says, “What do you mean? That didn’t prove anything.” “Yes it did. Because if he was black he would’ve said I is what I is.”

Will, talking with you is like trying to reason with a light pole, I can only wonder what type of business you run and how long have you owned the business? Apparently it hasn't had time to fail yet. As for as my feelings towards people of other races, I have several membes of the caucasian race in my family of both genders. I have white and black friends, one of my closest happens to be a white Male. I have in the past visited their homes and shared meals with them and likewise had them over for meals at my home. I have worked with slept in the same room, used the same bathroom and showers and fought along side them if you include my military career. I was brought up to treat people as I wanted to be treated and to have enough common sense to not group people together based upon skin color or nationalities. There are idiots and biggots of all races.I also realize that without some white folks making sacrifices years ago I could still be enslaved today. Have I ever said something racially hurtful in the past 10-20 years? Yes I recently referred to you as an "Uncle Tom". Einstein if you read the complaint that I have referred to on more than one occassion you would see that the racial accusation alleged against Ms.Deen , the use of the "N" word was in or about 2007.

Will, From your reply I can see that you still haven't read the allegations filed with the court.

Covingtonian 1 year, 5 months ago on Deen's ex-husband: Former employee motivated by greed

Will the following is an excerpt from my reply to Darrell Huckaby who wrote an article a few days ago about the Pala Deen lawsuit: I have witheld my views publicly on the Paula Deen situation until I could gather more facts. ... something you should learn to do as well. A google search soon had me reading the 33 page complaint filed with the Chatam county court.(see "Paula Deen Is In Hot Water Y'all: Employment discrimination...") I have only finished the first seventeen pages but that is enough for me to understand why her sponsors are dropping her. I realize that these are only allegations but, they are from a white female former General Manager who served in that position for some five years. Paula's brother Bubba is painted as pretty much out of control, allegedly requiring his afro american employees to come in through the back door for "all purposes" including to pickup their checks and having to use a seperate rest room. He is also painted as a sexual deviant. What I really found to be appalling is that Paula's deragatory statements did not take place twenty or thirty years ago but in this decade. Oh yeah Paula knew or should have known how her brother was running the business within her corporation. Will during slavery time they had what was referred to as "the house "N" who would tell on and boss his fellow slaves for the master also. It was alleged that Bubba Hiers (Paulas brother) once asked his black driver if he didn't wish "that he could rub the black off his skin"? Do you?
