What You Might Miss If You Were Unable to Read

How we trust in God as a community and a nation?

Recently there have been debates about the use of our nation's motto, "In God We Trust." It is found on the dollar bill, on the wall of the Supreme Court, and on many of our car tags. There are those that voices object to its use. They base their objection on the separation of Church and State.

What is the Grinch all about?

This coming week sees the last of the special Christmas events brought to us by Main Street Covington under the leadership of Velinda Wheeles and her staff for 2015.

At the end of this year we will be seeing the end of 37 years of service by Janet Goodman. That is a lot of years of service to her community by this beloved lady. She has served on Covington's City Council at Post One of the West Ward.
