Earth Day

This week marks the 44th anniversary of Earth Day. In years past, the day has been marked with great media fanfare and attention. This week, it marched by with little mention. This is not so much a reflection of any lack of interest in the Earth, but a reflection of how mainstream and ongoing the topics of recycling, reclaiming and sustainability have become. They are now part of our daily lives, rather than a topic to be raised once a year.

How 2010 is shaping up

How's your new year going so far? I didn't make any New Year's resolutions because I don't believe in them. I also don't believe that collard greens and black-eyed peas will bring you mountains of wealth, but, when accompanied by a hunk of buttermilk cornbread, I can be halfway talked into anything.

Aftershocks

A really big earthquake hit the third world nation of Haiti last week. Now, the brutal fact is that there's not a great deal of discernible difference between Haiti before the 'quake, and Haiti afterward. But the world's developed nations have immediately sent hundreds of millions of dollars in emergency assistance to the Caribbean nation, which occupies one-third of the island of Hispaniola. Fittingly, the Dominican Republic, which occupies the other two-thirds, was the first nation to offer help to Haiti.

The amount of aid pledged to assist the nine million citizens of Haiti is as staggering, in ...

There's a difference

Dear Editor: I would like to comment on a letter from Linda Cooper that was in the 1-13-2010 edition of The Covington News.

I do agree with her about people who would dump their animals like trash, not caring what happens to them. We have had more than our share dumped out here too. She is not alone in thinking that the Humane Society and Animal Control are one and the same. I am a member of the Humane Society and have heard people talking like that a lot. I do try to explain that we are not the same ...

Same Sex Marriage

Dear Editor: This week in California they are in court over same-sex marriage. The people of California voted no in 2008 on same-sex marriage in California, but now same-sex marriage advocates are back in federal court today to try and say that it is unconstitutional. They may make it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and the court may over turn the vote of the people of that state.

If the U.S. Supreme Court can overturn the will of the people of a state then what will be next? I would think that overturning the will ...
