I agree with Ms Kimberly. She should be fired and have her teaching license taken away. She supposed to be an example to the youth at NHS. I do not believe this is setting a good example. I know you are innocent until proven guilty. But she did blew over the legal limit and had an open container and had a bag of cocaine in her purse. So lets see how Newton Schools handle this situation.

Absolutely ridiculous. I hope I am on the jury. Not Guilty. This is limiting free speech. This is a forum where people can post comments on a story. I have in the past have situations with administration and never been sued. Just wow.

I am glad the neighbors seem concerned, but guns, this was not self defense. I know our police and sheriff's deputies do a fine job, but I really believe maybe they could have investigated a little more. I really hope and pray that this does not end up being a race thing.

Here we go again. In this economy the time just isnt right. Thank goodness Queen Carter is almost out of office. Taxes are too high already. Yes I am against this. And no I do not live anywhere near this railroad trail. There is more to this story then people are really telling the citizens.

I am so glad I do not live in Porterdale. That town is an eyesore to Newton County. It is also a disgrace. Why do those so called adults cannot get along. They act like a bunch of spoiled brats who doesnt get their way. When they were elected they promise to be on the people's side and go to meetings when scheduled. Porterdale will forever be a eyesore and a disgrace as long as the so called leaders keep in fighting and throwing tantrums.

Please stop all this Christian Bashing. Calling each other names. A Church is not just a building. It is a group of people.; A Judge has ruled why will it not end. God also said we must obey mans law too.

I hate to say it more of this thug crime in Covington. If it walks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck its a duck.

Folks crime as become s bad in Newton County, and I will be glad when I retire so I can move to somewhere alot more decent. I know crime can happen anywhere but Newton County used not have this kind of crime until a certain majority of people move in.

Thanks for the article. I really enjoyed it. I admit I really thought Pres Obama was going to make changes. I do not like him blaming others. Thats nonsense he does that. He is in charge and he should be taking the blame. I am a democrat and a white male. So even I am disgusted with Pres Obama
