Our thoughts Beauty

The Covington News - - OPINION -

In spite of all the re­cent po­lit­i­cal up­heaval in the county and the back-chan­nel threats of more to come, New­ton County is still a beau­ti­ful place to live.

We have it all — from farm­land to ur­ban life, a qual­ity wa­ter source and a de­ter­mi­na­tion by the majority of our res­i­dents to keep it that way.

In the county seat, Cov­ing­ton, in spite of the usual naysay­ers, the work on the Square looks great. Mean­while Por­terdale is en­joy­ing a re­vival of spirit with the re-open­ing of the his­toric gym­na­sium, and crowds queu­ing to put in for a kayak­ing ad­ven­ture on the Yel­low River.

Ox­ford is cel­e­brat­ing its 150th year, Mans­field is en­joy­ing a re­newed spirit of re­de­vel­op­ment start­ing on its own square, and New­born is still as quaint as ever.

Now is an ex­cit­ing time to en­joy all New­ton County has and will have to of­fer.

With the ad­vent of fall and some beau­ti­ful weather things are only get­ting more scenic. We sug­gest, in­stead of try­ing to spend your week­ends in At­lanta and fight­ing the hor­rific traf­fic prob­lems, load up a pic­nic and take a ride out to our beau­ti­ful coun­try­side.

You can also take your fam­ily for some ex­er­cise and fun to our many parks; The Charley El­liot cen­ter is a great place to com­mune with na­ture.

We all our for­tu­nate to live here in New­ton County it truly is a land of pleas­ant liv­ing.
