Our thoughts... Credit card fees

The city of Covington is considering dropping the credit card fee that it currently charges its customers who pay their bills with plastic instead of cash or checks.

In these dark economic times, it's more than promising to see a local business buck the trend and take a leap of faith that the future will certainly get brighter for our community.

Stop Signs

It is just amazing that no one has the authority or the determination to take down the useless stop signs at the non-used railroad crossings in Newton County.
