Eyeball 1 year, 8 months ago on Jeff Meadors: Schools rise and fall on leadership

You began your article by mentioning your family's legacy. Does that gives you some sort of instant credibility? It appears your article is an attempt to attack the previous principal. Somehow you refuse to move forward. You should look in the mirror. Leadership should start with you! Personally I feel you are a very divisive individual. It takes the involvement of the community to become successful in the educational arena. Parents, students, administrators, school employees and local government all are stakeholders. Parents should also be held accountable for their children's progress. If children spend less time on social media and more time studying, maybe then their grades and study habits will improve. Why are we always blaming the school system, the administration, and our teachers? Students' behaviors are attributed to the type of discipline they receive at home. If discipline is not enforced at home, how can we expect them to be disciplined at school? Hopefully, you will be a one-term board member.

Eyeball 1 year, 9 months ago on Gun ordinance proposal under fire

According to the county attorney's office, the South River Gun Club is off limits due to a grandfather clause that was voted on by our commissioners. The SRGC is responsible for a number of these nuisance calls. I would like the Chairman and other commissioners explain this grandfather clause to the citizens. Who was involved in approving this clause? When was it established? How is it that the SRGC can operate 7 days a week, 365 days out of the year with no restrictions? Not only do they violate the noise ordinance, they jeopardize the safety of the surrounding neighborhoods. Additionally, Newton County Citizens have a right as tax paying citizens to feel safe and secure. Not all gun owners are responsible citizens. One death is one too many. Once that trigger is pulled, there is no point of return. People should be able to talk and discuss important issues without allowing their personal prejudices to prevail.

If conyersgirl spend more time working on her grammar instead of shooting her guns, maybe her writing skills would improve....It's amazing how people are so selfish!

Jeff Meadows is catering to the right wing Republicans in Newton County. Jeff Meadows is trying to position himself for public office. The citizens of Newton County deserves qualified educated leaders on the BOC. He with all of his negative rhetoric is like a cancer for this community. Hopefully, he reads this since it appears he is aware of what is written in the newspaper.

Eyeball 1 year, 9 months ago on Tuesday's BOC meeting canceled: Work session on firearms discharge to be held at later date

I totally agree with you. Mort Ewing and his other right wing buddies is the reason John Middleton has an increase in power. It was Mort Ewing who wanted our form of government to change. After it was done, he left office. Also the county attorney should be included in this group. We the citizens need to voice our opinion and fire Tommy Craig. When he leaves, we need to get rid of John Middleton as well.

Eyeball 1 year, 10 months ago on Republicans speak out against divisive commentary

He was speaking for the REPUBLICAN Party. If he wasn't, someone would have step forward and challenge his statement. Mrs. Davis should have spoken up immediately, not after considering how she will be viewed. I guarantee you, someone in Newton County will voice their true feelings soon. It's just a matter of time! One's true feeling will eventually rear it's ugly head. You notice how the Republican Party always state, "We need to take back the White House." Take back the White House from who? The statement is referencing our BLACK president. Some of our local politicians have made the same reference when running against a black candidate. The Republicans will not be happy until two things happen: A return to slavery and Another chance at winning the Civil War. Don't hold your breath, neither of these will happen. Get over it!
