Eyesores and code enforcement

Dear Editor: I cannot for the life of me understand why the taxpayers allow the city of Covington to selectively enforce the codes. On one occasion, I asked why a complete remodel of a structure two blocks from the code offices did not have a building permit. It was under construction for the better part of a year and every official who works for the city had to have passed it every day.

Board of Education

Dear Editor: I am troubled by the actions of the BOE regarding efforts for teaching Christian principles. Statements by the petitioners and some members of the board indicated that nothing would be required except permission. If there is no involvement of the education system then why appear before the board? By simply doing it after school hours and off campus, then all potential issues are avoided.

Our thoughts: Graduation

Last week was an exciting time for our local graduates and their families. A few of our new graduates have definitive plans for their futures which they'll pursue immediately, while others have plans but are not quite ready to put them in action. For the latter, the reality of no school next week will motivate them soon enough.

We live in a world that will require much more out of young people than any other generation that has preceded it.

Our thoughts: Heroes

After all these years, we were more than pleased when the President of the United States apologized for the lack of action our government took in welcoming home the heroes who fought and shed their blood in the Vietnam conflict during a speech at Arlington Cemetery - the nation's most hallowed of hallowed grounds - last Monday.

This was a time when all of us with good sense allowed a group of radical left wingers to insult and even spit upon our returning Vietnam veterans.

McCoy: Nickname Nightmares

You might recall that I'm a grandfather now. Yes. Yes. It's been a blessing, and I'd joyously dance in the streets except I'm a lousy dancer and people drive way too fast around here. So let's just pretend I'm doing a little dance of joy. And I'm joyous because grandchildren are cute, cuddly, soft and sweet. And I'm joyous because all the old clichés about being a grandparent are true. We will spoil them. We will play with them and then hand them back to the parents. We will bore people ...
