Sound Off

Love it: Do we hail the graduate? Hail, yeah! A yard sign just doesn’t do it for some Coweta parents, who congratulated their graduate with a billboard on I-85.

May 27, 2016

Deputies were wrong: Too often the police approach situations with maximum violence and force whether necessary or not. Coweta deputies killed an unarmed man in handcuffs.

May 26, 2016

Typical liberal: You slam Trump on family values but you say nothing about Bill Clinton and all of his affairs along with Hillary helping him cover them up or Jimmy Carter and his interview in Playboy.

Bill Clinton: He opened his mouth campaigning for his wife so he was fair game by Trump.

​Where is the public outcry?

Where is the outrage by the citizens of Coweta County, the citizens of the state of Georgia the citizens of the United States for the amoral things that are being foisted upon all of us by the federal government for the benefit of tiny minorities? May. 20, 12:41 AM

First, I want to sincerely thank reporter Celia Shortt and The Newnan Times-Herald for reaching out to our Coweta Board of Education representatives on this recent extortion attempt by the current administration via the use of our most precious commodity – our children. May. 20, 12:42 AM
