I would like the privilege of explaining to the neighbor who seems to have some misconceptions about Mr. Darrell Huckaby and his recent report of conditions in London.

Larry Stanford’s article on the new stop signs in the Covington Square area was a good explanation for why this decision was made to improve our city’s safety.

I attended the Rockdale County Courthouse Committee meeting on Tuesday Dec. 11 and was ashamed of the attitude most of the members took toward the general public and how the committee wants to restrict the public’s right to speak at the upcoming town hall meetings.

I got one of my degrees 40 years ago from a very reputable, nationally known institution in metro Atlanta. I went back earlier this year to take a variety of soft discipline classes from their undergraduate catalog. Let me share with you what I have learned first-hand from this “before” and “after” snapshot of the same school. It’s not pretty.

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Frank B. Turner Jr., a partner at Greer Stansfield & Turner LLP in Covington, on his recent reappointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve on the Georgia Board of Community Affairs.

Like much of the Southeast, on Wednesday, Jan. 17, Rockdale woke up to a beautiful scene outside – it was covered with a blanket of white snow. A regular winter wonderland!
