Where did that name come from?

Have you ever thought, "How did that town or river or county get that name?" Have you ever noticed that once a name is used many times it just seems to fit? That is true with people as well as places. Being new to the Covington area, I have questioned where some the names of our cities and counties have originated.

Changes and more changes

The past few weeks have brought changes that were unimaginable just a decade ago, but before you start wondering if this is yet another column about the Confederate flag or same-sex marriage, let me stop you right there. Sure, those are big changes, and I was just as surprised by them as you were, but this column is about change on a more personal level. This is a story about changes that I'm going through. You see, I'm already married, so all this gay marriage stuff doesn't affect me except as an observer of U.S. law ...

Have you ever thought?

There is an old saying, "When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on." The point I think is that if we can hold on, we may find a way to get around the problem that made it seem that we were at the end of our rope. If we don't find a way to hang on, there is no hope. The challenge is to seek new possibilities and to find a way through.

What in the world is going on with Legion Field?

On Mill Street between Floyd Street and Newton Drive is Legion Field. In a world of development it is a precious piece of green space. It holds memories of fairs dating back to the thirties.

Have You Ever Thought …

If it seems like we have been celebrating Independence Day for more than a week, that's because we have. This is the time we celebrate our birth as a nation and the freedoms that we cherish. It seems that we can't get it all into just one day.

We're all fat now

When I was a kid, I was beyond skinny. I was a beanpole, a stick, a rail of a boy who could eat and eat and still be blown over by a strong March wind. Calories weren't my problem. In fact, calories meant one thing to me: "fat people." In my partial view of reality, the only people who talked about calories were "fat people." March forward a few too many decades, and I'm talking about calories, and I'm one of those "fat people." Maybe you are too? We're all fat now, from what I read ...

Why we see dogs as man’s best friend?

For centuries dogs have been called man's best friend. Many of us either have dogs as pets or remember with fondness the years that we did. Perhaps it is because in most cases the dogs seem to think a lot more of us than we are really worth. A dog can be a great example of unconditional love. The other day I found a whole new reason to give this title of "best friend" to a dog.

Stephens: Why Father's Day

Today is the day that tradition has set aside in our nation as the day we honor our fathers. Though there is no clear history on the day. When we look at the time line, the day came into existence after Mother's Day was first observed.
