Eight years later, still getting information

Dear Editor: Some things just don't change. Eight years ago the Board of Commissioners refused to put the county alcohol-by-the-drink issue to a public vote citing they didn't have enough time and information. Two of the commissioners who on Aug. 3, 2010, refused once again to let the public vote on the issue are the same commissioners who voted no in 2002 for the same reason. What have they been doing for the last eight years?

Pundits and politicians

Dear Editor: I like Mort Ewing. He has the fortitude to "do the right thing." In the Aug. 6 edition of the Covington News, the News' editorial said Mr. Ewing "could have trusted the people of the county to do the right thing and vote for the good of the financial health of the county." The insinuation being that Mr. Ewing did the wrong thing. What Mr. Ewing did was to take into consideration the safety and well being of all its citizens. Did he "inflict his own personal views on the voters of the county?" Isn't our form ...

Review: ‘The Other Guys’ refreshes the buddy-cop story

Maybe it's the remake/reboot/sequel fatigue that's setting in, but it seems as though this summer has lacked a memorable mainstream comedy, like last year's "The Hangover." After the sour aftertaste of "Dinner for Schmucks," I was wary walking into "The Other Guys," a buddy cop spoof starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. It was either that or "Step Up 3D." What would you have picked?
