I have lived in Newton County for most of my life. It is a small town, so everyone knows everyone. I have always felt safe here and have made many life long friends. We are known as "The Hollywood of The South". Many movies and TV shows have been filmed here, and new opportunities are coming to a rise for many of the residents living here.

Newton is nice in some ways but then in others I feel Newton County neglects kids futures by not giving more to the community for these kids in Newton County to really grow from, it's all about a hearsay or a connection. These kids here are very limited to what they can obtain or what some authority thinks that child deserves instead of the child having the resources and choosing what they want to do with that information.
I like Newton County because it's like a small town. The people are nice and there's always something to do. I would like to see a change in the amount of traffic here, but other than that this is a great place to raise a family.
