The Newnan Herald was Georgia’s first newspaper after Civil War. Eventually the title of the newspaper became The Times-Herald
Started as a sideline by two Newnan lawyers in the days after the Civil War ended, The Times-Herald has become an institution in the intervening 143 years.
For decades, Coweta County residents have turned to The Times-Herald for news about local government. Mothers of the bride have brought write-ups about their daughters’ weddings, and sports fans have checked out the results of the latest local games.
Recently one of the journalist, Jeff Bishop, has been writing about a local legend known as the "Belt Road Booger" also known as The Happy valley Horror
In short; it's a 30 yr legend with multiple sightings and several descriptions similar to Bigfoot.
A few descriptions from the Times-Herald article:
"It was dark. It stands about five feet tall. It's big across the chest. Its eyes look like diamonds at night when you shine a light on them," was how one local woman described the "monster."
The creature was reported to have "a face like a monkey and a long bushy tail."
Read the two articles below to learn what local residents have been saying for 30+ years.
