The good, the bad, and the historic from my hometown

An old friend of mine, Tricia Turner, who blogs at Expeditions by Tricia, has just posted this story about the Newton County Home Tour, an annual event in my home county. She knew I wanted some photos of the Newton County Jail, about which I've periodically blogged (like here and here), and so she let me know that she took some and used them to illustrate the post.

In case you are wondering, the home tour, which raises funds for the county's single-parent scholarship fund, did not tour the jail! You'll have to read Turner's post to see how she links the two. You may also enjoy her descriptions of some of the wealthy folks who have moved to Newton County in recent years, seeking privacy as part of the rural life there.
