Have you ever thought?

What of the past do we keep? Why is it important for us to remember what events happened before our time? We are much like the turtle found on top of the fence post; we know one thing for sure: that turtle didn't get there by himself. Yesterday is the one day we cannot change. Whatever our history is, it is our history. And by remembering our past we learn valuable lessons as well as appreciation for those who sacrificed for us.

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.

The challenge is to seek new possibilities and to find a way through.

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.
