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.

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.
