Have You Ever Thought … There are those in Newton with amazing stories to tell

I would have never expected to meet a man who is a "legend" in the world of dog sled racing right here in Covington. His name is Bob Holder and he lives out near the Hub Junction on the eastside of Newton County. A native of Florida, a letterman in Basketball at the University of Georgia, and winner of the Bronze Star in the U.S. Rangers during the War in Vietnam. Bob moved to Newton County in 1968 to go into the well-drilling business.

Have You Ever Thought… Why do we have Memorial Day?

The statement that "All Politics is Local" is usually accredited to the late Tip O'Neal, who served as the 55th Speaker of the U.S. House, 1977-1987. He is said to have used the phrase in his first campaign for the House in 1935. I would want to paraphrase that statement on this Memorial Day Weekend, to say that "All Patriotism is Local." Those we recall this weekend who gave their lives that we might be free, did it not so much for some abstract idea but for their families and neighbors.

Hello, C-town! And we sure hope its lovely out there for everyone.
