I am too very glad about this. I have been approached by people asking for money around the square are when I was going for a walk around the square. I hope this is enforced. I have been thru some very hard economic times but I have never went to the streets and beg for money. This is not Atlanta and I pray and hope Covington will never get that bad. The crime in Covington is already getting worse and I do believe panhandling cause more crime. I thank you Mayor for your courage to make this illegal.

I agree with the above post about our men and women fighting over in Afghanistan. Its so sad to see the media and politicians have forgotten about this war. If we are not going to support them BRING THEM HOME. Come on people and wake up.

This was a prank. It was reported in the other paper that the girl has been charger with a fake criminal report. I hope this girl understands the serious nature of what she did.

I have been reading alot about this. I do not have a child in Newton County Schools anymore, but this is so sad. I complained numerous times about my daughter's prinicpal and her teachers when she was in school and never did get sued. When you work in a pubic situation you should expect people to say very negative things about you. Not everyone will like you, and thats part of life. I have work for years and I know people said awful mean things and even had my feelings hurt some, but I never did sue and just carry on with life. I hope this doesnt drag on and on and I hope this doesnt hurt our kids in the schools. Kids did read and they will know about this when school starts back in August and I just wonder how it will go. We still have freedoms in this country and I do hope and pray these freedoms never go away. Thank you for letting me voice my opinion and I am waiting for my supeona.
