I totally agree FlowerPower. They do a good job and indeed the cats do keep down the rat population. Very scary to come face to face with a big old rat while dumping trash. If the poster wanted to do something really nice instead of complain, they could take up money to have the cats spay or neutered. I use Project Catsnip. They are really good and inexpensive. I do that in my own neighborhood. I think I've had minimum of 20+ cats spayed and neutered. I'd be willing to donate.

This comment has nothing to do with politics, school, or anything much. Just wanted to let everyone know I paid $3.33 a gallon for gas in McDonough last weekend when it's running $3.45 to $3.49 everywhere in Covington. Does make one wonder, doesn't it.

Gosh, some oversight. I've had colleagues fired for smaller oversights than this. Maybe he's concentrating on something else and not paying attention to the details. I guess my question is, if it is being covered by the original budget, does that mean something else is getting cut, and if so, what, and how much is it going to cost me and the other taxpayers?

As far as the gas prices go, McDonough is ALWAYS cheaper by 5-10 cents per gallon. I bought it yesterday in McDonough at the Kroger for $3.07 and Sam's was the same. The QT was $3.15 like the other poster observed in Loganville. But, it has been my experience that McDonough is always cheaper, so I shop there because most everything else is as well. The Walmart store is better organized and they keep their lights on, which the Covington Walmart does not do. It seems they rotate lights, turning some off, then rotating to the next group. It always seems too dark and dreary. Also, if you buy a dvd, they are usually a couple of dollars more expensive than the other Walmarts and if you ask why (which I did) they say they don't "MATCH" other Walmart stores. Go figure on that.

Peggy 1 year, 10 months ago on Alcovy principal names school board member in lawsuit

I don't have children in school in Newton County, for that I am thankful. So, I don't have a dog in this fight, but it seems foolish to me for this woman to ADMIT to diverting county funds and time to this lawsuit. I pass by this high school every afternoon and there's a small store on hwy 36 that has had lots of problems with the kids coming in after school and taking things without paying. I was told by one of the workers (so it's hearsay) that they have asked several times for the principal to stop this, to no avail. Just sayin.......

Covingtonian, I think I was behind her too the other day. It's almost like a contest. You try to pass, they speed up to keep you from it. When did basic driver etiquette go away?

I have a small response to the person commenting on the traffic on Hwy 36. I have somewhat of a different perception. I drive in at about 5:30 AM in the morning and around 5 PM in the afternoon. In the morning, it never fails that on Hwy 36 where the speed limit is 55, that there will be a driver that is driving between 35 and 45, but NEVER reaching the speed limit. There are very few places to pass on that road and it is difficult to pass that early in the morning since it is so dark and there's always the possibility of hitting a deer. In any case generally there is a line of traffic behind the person driving the 35 to 45 MPH, sometimes as many as 15 cars. In the afternoon, many times it is the same there will be one car that is driving 35 to 45 with 15 cars behind. In my humble opinion, if you see that many cars behind you, please pull over and let the ones that are able to handle a car at 55 MPH get by. Then, there won't be drivers taking unnecessary chances. And, oh by the way, on the morning run, I have been number 6 behind the driver with several cars behind me and a Newton County Sheriff's car will pass the 8 or 9 cars to get in front of the slow poke. So, they are out there, maybe they should pull over the slow poke.

Amen to the mom and 2 plus babies poster. I myself was behind one of those moms. She left the grocery store and got into a brand new escalade and drove off. I'm 60+ years old and I'm supporting her.

To the free phone defender, so if all the "facts" you put into your post are correct, then what you are actually saying is, YES, we are still paying for other folks to have a cell phone. And, this is a taxation without our consent. Or, another mis-direction of tax monies to assure votes.
