Kudos to Clay and Beth Neely and The Newnan Times-Herald staff for their hard work in getting the paper out on March 27 with coverage of the devastating EF-4 tornado that struck Newnan overnight.

On March 26, we had no cable service, no Internet service and we don’t own a radio. Our home and street were unaffected by the storm. We got the tragic news via a phone call from a cousin in Upstate New York after she saw it on the national news.

That 32-page newspaper on Saturday March 27 brought us up to date when other media sources could not.

We thank you.
