Could technology change the way law enforcement uses force?

October 23, 2016 | Terri Fullerton | LIVING


Have you ever thought …

In the past few months our nation has struggled with issues between those who protect and serve us in law enforcement and those segments of the population that feel oppressed. We are blessed here in Covington with a police department, under the leadership of Police Chief Stacy Cotton, which is held in high esteem by the community. The challenge is how do we build on that relationship and make it even stronger. The time to act is before the crisis occurs.

Shane Clark is a little Country, a little Rock and Roll

As I write this column, I'm still feeling how great the Sweet Harmony show was at the Mystic Grill last week. We had a really good show and we did a version of "Jolene" that I think took us all a couple hundred thousand feet about sea level.

Have you ever thought …

Most agree that throughout the last few years, new life has come to the Square at the heart of Covington. We have seen a variety of shops, restaurants and eateries open. And others are set to join them soon. What's even more amazing is the number of people you see walking through the Square and sitting on the benches, visiting all throughout the day and evening.

Fall is the best month to plant trees and shrubs

While driving around Newton County this summer, no matter how short the drive, anyone can see a dead tree or shrub in many yards. It would stand to reason they died from dry weather seeing how dry this summer has been. Some would also think the high temperatures were the cause of mortality.

Have you ever thought …

The best way I know to help choose what direction our community, state or nation moves toward is by voting for people who best reflect our own beliefs. Voting is a sacred right that we have been given by those who came before us. Some have given their life defending this freedom; some have worked hard to see that right is not for a few but for all, and it would be a great shame if we don't vote and instead allow that right to be wasted.
