When you live in the best city in the state, it's good for out of town folks to know that Covington is the best of the rest.
The shape that Newton County board of Education is in now wanting more money to waste, I dare the board to cut their salaries, Mr.Carpenter, his wife's salary.
And the high salary that Mr. Matthews gets. Who knows all the salary cuts might help keep a teacher from having take furlough days.
Vote No, Property taxes are to high , just more money to fatting thier pockets.
I'm glad to see Rockdale County honor Judge Nation this way.
@Dennistay53, For 57 years I have lived in Newton County like I said I can remember when city pond looked like a mud hole it fed by a undergound stream. The city and county put strict water restrictions on everybody.I'm so glad that you had the funds to have you 3 drilled wells, there are some folks that do not have funds for a drilled well that $3,500 up to $5,000 to have done. So it was cheaper to pay $1,400 tap fee to tir into county water. I do know this sooner or later a well can go dry and then you will be crying the blues, and I bet you will pay whatever the tap fee is to pay to tie into county water. Ha Ha!
To Dennistay53,henrystamm, I persume you two were not around when the City of Covington first built city pond, at first that place was providing water to the citizens of the City of Covington and Oxford, then the county started getting water from the City of Covington, I can remember the city pond so low that there was hardly any water pressure, then they built Varner Lake to help take up the slack.
Water is very important to our bodies. So I ask you two if we did not have water how would you two live? I had rather have to much water than not have any at all. Beer,Liqour,and drugs kill a person but water helps us to live.
We have teachers like this teaching the children of our future, ( and people wonder why our country is missed up) When B O E decides to overhaul the system and we get the right people in place only then will our children learn anything.
Good old Obama care, someone decides other than the doctor and patient gets the medical care they need to live or die. America is turning into a communist country.
Thank God the people of Newton County re electected Sheriff Brown for another 4 years in office. I'm glad that they did not listen to the lies that his opponet made on the most honest, God fearing, loyal man there is.
It really makes you think who the grown ups are when things come up like this. The young man should have been awarded for his honesty in telling school peronnel about his B B gun. It makes you wonder if the school is teaching a child not to be honest, this reminds me of how our president and his cabinet members has told lies about what happen in Lybia. We must teach our children to be honest and truful instesd of lying. The child went to his grand parents home over the weekend and forgot to take out of back pack before he went school.Guns are not the ones that commit crimes, it is people who have lost their jobs, and gang members who kill and rob innocent people. So I say to the school what have you really taught this child to do in the future?
When people break into churches ,they not only steal from the church they steal from God and the community that church is in. If this nation contiunes on the path that it is on then God will remove his protection. When we allow people in power to tell a religious group that they provide birth control and support abortion, and support gay marriage the nation we once knew will be no more.
