covington300 11 months ago on School board approves tentative budget; Delays changes to Ombudsman transportation, additional nurses

Mr. Johnson says cost should not be a determining factor....hmmm, why then is cost a determining factor when it comes to class size, instructional days, and classroom materials? Some might say it is an insult to be inconsistent with regards to deciding what should and should not be cut when budgets are shrinking and decisions must be made....

I think a pretty good rule of thumb for the board should be, if it will help students learn then it should be done - then be consistent across the board. If riding a bus to Ombudsman helps the students learn it should be kept. If reducing class room size helps students learn, it should be reduced...

Just like the Constitution, elected officials do not serve their constituency appropriately when they are inconsistent with their voting or misleading with their comments.

wow...nothing like stereotyping... On a serious note, I think it is great that you all vetted those involved with this new ecnomic development in our area and not only know the reasons they are coming but their political ideology and the individual on whom they wrote their college thesis. Who says facist Hitler conservatives group people together in order to oversimplify things for their supporters low cognitive ability. It is ultimately unfortunate that in the 21st century we still have to categorize everyone and everything instead of celebrating something which will benefit all of us in Newton County regardless of the type of flag, hybrid, or sandals our new neighbors may own.....

I know, they are going to close EHS and then Alcovy and only have one high school in the whole county. I think this started when they took the County out of Newton High School.. .I think this is all a grand plan set in motion by Ron Bradley so he can come back and get one more state title for Newton COUNTY High School.... it just makes me glad to know that people in the know like you are getting the real truth out. Thanks a bunch!

John - 1) why were you substituting for 1 1/2 years? Sounds like you should have been a full time teacher and let your "brain fire power" fix the problem. 2) what was your motivating factor in getting an MBA? I certainly hope it wasn't money that led you to gettting an advanced degree....maybe you should have gotten into education. With all your smarts and ideas, I'm sure you have a solution.

56vick - In what building do the teachers only need a GED to teach? Now that's a headline....

What an ignorant human...and people wonder why the Republican Party is losing relevance each day....if the party leaders had any gumption they would ask him to step down and distance themselves from such idiotic statements. Guess the chairman and vice chair don't feel those comments are too bad---it saddens me to see republicans or democrats use race as an issue to get votes...scare tactics are not the foundation of a successful and free government.

One last thing - how many races the did Rockdale Republicans win in November?

He should've gone to confession before the BCS game, then all would have been clean the Irish would've won the title.

covington300 1 year, 3 months ago on Covington Police look into two separate stabbing incidents

I don't know if they are "section 8 EBT card Obama phone abusers" due mainly to the fact I do not know who did it. I doubt you do as well but if you know their identity I would go forward to law enforcement so they can do their jobs...I chose to call him a redneck because I won't hide behind pronouns and innuendos when calling out embarrassing commentary by others. If he weren't a "fine country gentleman" he wouldn't have take the trendy Obama line. He would have exercised his frontal lobe for some original ideas...I've lived in this area for 35 years- I know a redneck when I read THEIR suggestive uses of pronouns and other poorly constructed racial stereotypes...
