dustinketchem 1 year, 5 months ago on Douglas ends congressional bid

John Douglas is a trouble maker. He is trying to turn the County Commission into his own little political sideshow. Him and J.C. Henderson both deserve the axe. Too bad we have to wait until 2016 to get rid of Douglas.

dustinketchem 2 years, 1 month ago on Letter: Strauss understands challenges of his constituents

Ive read several of Henry's comments. He is apparently a angry at the world. I havent read a single comment on here where he has anything nice to say. Its best just to ignore him. Im sure he will have something to say about this comment.

inthemiddle.. i guess that why Newton County was selected as 1 of 30 Sheriffs Deaprtments that received National Recognition. We also received a $1,000,000 grant from the state for having th ebest new hires. Dont talk about something when you dont have a clue.

dustinketchem 2 years, 2 months ago on Letter: Douglas will preserve quality of life in District 1

He is talking out of both sides of his mouth if he says he will follow the 2050 plan, but keep the 2 acre minimum in District 1. I grew up in District 1, in newton Ridge. The people on that side of the county do want to preserve the quality of life. They arent stupid though. They understand that the county is growing and in order to maintain the quality of life they have, while also enhancing it.. that growth must be managed responsibly. To say that you can keep a 2 acre minimum and not alter the 2050 plan is dishonest. There are areas, not in the proximity of existing residential zones that have been set asside in the 2050 plan for dense residential. In order to follow the 2050 plan the 2 acre minimum will have to be axed.. and someone responsible enough to atleast tell te truth will have to be elected to make sure developments outside of those zones arent allowed. Mr. Douglas comes from the most corrupt State Legislature in the country. Thats a fact.

dustinketchem 2 years, 2 months ago on Letter: Strauss will answer only to voters of District 1

Mr Strauss is just being honest. In order to follow the 2050 plan there cannot be a 2 acre minimum. The only thing we can do is elect a commissioner that will follow the 2050 plan, which lays out where the high density residential areas of District 1 will be. What you are calling John Strauss's dishonesty.. is simply someone being realistic and not lying to the public.

John Douglas comes from the most corrupt State Legistlature in the Country. Thats just a fact.

Party doesnt matter on the local level Henry. Thats the problem we have now. People are trying to act like this is federal or state politics. Party affiliation shouldnt even be an issue on the local level.

Are you serious? These people should have your respect and trust from day one. If you dont.. send your kids somewhere else. Its the parents who are the problem. Stop making excuses for your kids. Its time that people step up and help the schools instead of fight against them.

This is ridiculous. Are you guys adults? If so, you should all be ashamed. This is the kind of people who have joined the public discourse in regards to our board of education? Everyone one of you seem very uneducated and very immature. I removed my child from Newton County Schools due to the poor quality of the School System. We are now proud parents in the Morgan County School System. Newton County deserves better than this.
