Anyone know when the traffic light will be installed at Hwy 154 and Hammock?
Anyone know when Sam’s Club will be open in Newnan?
Anyone know if Baker Road, which is heavily traveled between Hwys 34 & 154, will be widened and resurfaced?  It is narrow and a patchy mess right now!

Congratulations to Starship and it's owner on finally getting open, maybe the county won't waste any more taxpayer money on trying to keep this legitimate business from opening !

King Roy

King Roy, your 22 million could not win the last race. Maybe you have not eaten enough humble pie. Since your blue state flag did not fly, you might try purple or pink. Why do you want to be governor anyway? More money or just a power trip?

good ol boy attitude

As a newnan knight, I have a hard time accepting the good ol boy attitude of who you know and who how well off your family is. Stop riding the coat tails of your fathers and grandfathers, gain some integrity, and make your own way it this big world. Try all this with a smile and a little compassion for your fellow neighbor. Stop with greed and the self centered attitude where everything revolves around big money to others expense. You will find that laying your head down at night will be easier.


What ever happened to young ladies acting like young ladies?

What ever happened to young ladies acting like young ladies?  My family and I went to the ECHS Homecoming Game tonight and wow have things changed since I was in high school!!!  I would lay money on the fact that there were no less than 100 girls ages 14-17 walking around in sports bras and extremely short shorts with their stomachs painted.  Really?  There were even adults with a booth set up to paint these young girls!!  I was in utter shock that the school would allow this to go on. There was no way in the world that we as students would have been able to represent our school at a function like that back in my high school days.  I am very disappointed that the school officials allow these things to go on!!! 

Sporting Goods Store

To the certain sporting goods store that claims they are barely making any money on their handguns and couldn't possibly go any lower but yet you can go across town and get the same gun for $200.00 less maybe you should go there and buy them !

Drive Thru

People when you are in the drive thru please be aware that there are other people in line also ! Today a lady just sat there in front of the drive thru at Burger King not paying any attention as all the cars in front of her  had pulled on through she didn't even bother to look up from whatever she was doing to see if she needed to pull up for several minutes. Then when she got up to the window she pulled up just far enough so that I had to lean out the window to pay for my food and went back to whatever she was doing. If you need to concentrate that hard on whatever you're doing pull to the side and get out of the way !

Pull up your pants !

As I go about my business, I often see young boys and men with jeans or pants hanging really low on their hips , darn near showing all their family jewels.

Well, I was watching Judge Greg Mathis last week and he explained how that was started. I think many people will change that habit if they know.
Judge Mathis said when young men go to prison, no one gets clothes that fit them and the inmates are not allowed to have belts. Thus their pants hang low on their rears. But some men (boys) in prison like wearing them very low on their hips because those are the guys looking for a new boyfriend.
Golly kids, you don’t want us to thinking that about you do you?

Kids at Ashley park

To all the parents who have been venting in paper that your kids should have the right to just hang for however long and that it harmless...Man wish you could have been there Saturday night, so I could've seen your faces when these harmless kids broke out into a fight with a mob of 20 or more kids egging it on....priceless.....take your blinders off.  contributed by Chad W.

Highway 29

Highway 29 looks great now that it has been re-paved. However, it would be much nicer if you could paint the white lines on the outside edges of the road. I can't see the road in the pouring down rain without them. Kelly T.

Illegal Immigrants

It would be wonderful if we could do what Arizona is trying to do, the problem we have waited too long to do so. We would be hard pressed to even begin to enforce laws that have been ignored for so long and we would have nowhere to keep them if they were detained. The county jail is already overcrowded and ICE will not even consider them for deportion unless they have a past felony conviction or were previously deported. Besides that for every one you did get rid of 2 would take their place ! Until the federal government stops ignoring the problem and address it there will be no solution. We need to declare war on Illegal imigration just like we did on drugs in the 80s, but hopefully with a little better results. posted by Observer

unfair property tax assessment

I received the info regarding Mr. Bob Blackburn's unfair property tax assessments. Yes, it looks like his property gets the good old boy deal of being assessed at a mere $1,600 per acre while his neighbors are assessed at $9,000, $10,000, as much as $20,000 per acre for similar size lots and right next door. Residents of Timberidge off of Hwy 29 have to pay taxes on land assessed by the tax department at $40,000 per lot, while Mr. Blackburn's Timberidge lots are given the good buddy deal of being assessed at between $5,000 to $9,000. Now, this guy is going to be our next county commissioner where he can oversee more of his good buddy deals. What can the residents of Coweta do now!?

Nice job of monday morning quarterbacking by the Humane Society. Only problem is the result will probably be someones pet who has been running around without food for a few days and looks sick or may have an injury will be put down because the Animal Shelter will be afraid of another fiasco. submitted by Observer

Government spending by both Coweta County and the City of Newnan is an outrage

Government  spending by both Coweta County and the City of Newnan is an outrage. Building parks  when the schools dont even have enough books for all the kids, and if you just have to build parks why not out of the city limits in the West side of coweta around the Western School area. Plus after sitting in  State court of coweta county one day i want to know what happens to all the money from fines. I have done this several times just to see how much they take in more people need to go see just how much. Plus one family I talked with was there with their son. He had been arrested last year for reckless driving and speeding after I talked with this young man I found out that another car was trying to run him off the road and that they had caught the other driver also. And that the arresting officer agreed that the charges should be dropped against him. But the state would not drop it knowing that he was running for his life for all he knew. Robert Stokely how could your office not drop the charges. GREED!!!!!!! And then told he needed to find another way to handle the way he did that night should he have pulled over (he didnt know the other drive) he could have been shot or beat up. He tried to let the guy go past him but the guy slowed and tried to run him off the road. What would you do? He was just trying to make it home where he would be safe he hoped. No wonder people who have been raised here are wanting to move away. Thank God I am not from Newnan and live outside of Coweta. But I have family that do and feel sorry for them that have to put up with such stupid people in power and their stupid spending and their greed what happened to small town Newnan and Coweta that I love to visit as a child Why are they acting like they want to become another Atlanta or Old National.

Jury Duty

You would think the Clerk of the Court would like for people to volunteer to be jurors. I asked if they had some type of list for people who WANTED to do the service and they said NO....only every 2 years can you serve. Why? Most people do not like it. I would do it once a month if they would let me. PR

Tax Dollars at Work

So Coweta County Prison has purchased equipment to "spy" on its employees from home. They sit and watch from their laptop at home while off duty. Then they call officers while working and let them know "I am watching you".  Sounds like invasion of privacy to me.  Will they be watching the bathrooms next?  What a way to spend taxpayer money!

coweta primary elections

Coweta County remember if you do not vote in the Primary, you are letting someone else choose who you vote for in November! Let's get some folks in there that will stop this unnessary spending...Like a lawsuit we didn't have anything to do. And put us some firefighters on the truck instead of white shirts riding all the county in their big white expeditions, Monday-Friday. Who is going to put the fires and rescue the injured?

To the George Kett Harper supporter

To the George Kett Harper supporter who is taking up David Stover campaign signs please stop. You are making Mr. Harper look bad and getting a lot of bad press for behaving in this manner. When you visit an area and put out Mr. Harper's campaign signs, you should not then take up his opponents. There are people who are watching. C.B.

Traffic Lights

I remember in the not-so-distant past (though regrettably in another century now a dim memory to some), that if one was driving the speed limit on Jackson Street approaching downtown and made it through the traffic light by Lindsey's (crossing Madison) on green, one could rely on passing right through downtown with EVERY light being green.  The same was possible heading north on Greenville.
Now, however, I can count on one hand the number of times I have breezed through Newnan on all green lights since 2000...and have fingers left over.
My question is...HOW HARD CAN IT BE (having successfully put a man on the moon and inconveniently predicted global immolation) to synchronize the traffic lights in downtown Newnan?
I rather suspect the answer is "not hard at all, but we really fear for the safety of pedestrians OR we really want people to stop and see our 'charm' and all our new merchants and restaurants."  But still, I'm American and like to GET WHERE I'M GOING as efficiently as possible, which means "as quickly as possible with no unneccessary stops."  Somebody in Newnan is MAKING ME STOP when I know good and well from past experience I DON'T HAVE TO STOP!
Am I alone in my peevishness?
