Citizens comments

Those who follow and attend BOC meetings deplore the vote of Nov. 18th to move citizen comments to the end of each meeting. That means the commissioners won't hear from the public until after votes are taken on agenda items. This clearly says the majority of the BOC doesn't care what citizens have to say or think. But wait until the next election. Listen now or listen then.

Dear Fellow Covingtonians,

Have you ever felt like you were in a movie? Meaning that everything was so perfect that it couldn't actually be really happening? Halloween in Covington is like that.

‘Save your tears’ missed the boat

Thank you from Banks County

On the evening of Thursday, Sept. 19 one of our Banks County school buses was carrying a group of FCCLA students to a meeting when the bus broke down in downtown Covington, approximately 70 miles from Banks County when I received the phone call from Dr. Nan Throneberry, the sponsor of our FCCLA club. She was quite upset, not knowing what to do or how to continue from that point, as you might imagine. As the police arrived on the scene they assisted in transporting the group to their meeting as well as facilitating an evening meal at a local ...

Is 'free' really free?

I was intrigued by your article announcing that, thanks to a unanimous vote by our City Council, Covington "will get two or three electric vehicle chargers AT NO COST..." courtesy of a bankrupt national government. There is something strange about a government that can't balance its budget, giving something away "free" that people only buy if there is a subsidy involved – at the production, consumption and use levels.

Morgan’s colors are camouflage

Barbara Morgan meanders all over the world to finally arrive at the real reason for her attempt to educate those with opposing political viewpoints than her gospel. Using almost two columns (July 19) she describes the beauty of colors and attempts to define those colors discernible to the human eye. Thankfully she did not extend this treat to angstroms and the expressions of wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation and pure spectral colors.

Neighborhood has infuence

I would like to respond to a letter in the July 24 edition of The Covington News in which 14 families came to the defense of Councilman Keith Dalton concerning his ethical problems. The letter was short on substance and long on rambling, rhetoric and back slapping along with a grandiose description of their neighborhood while belittling their neighbors in the Covington Place subdivision.

Letter: Dalton a good neighbor

At least half of the residents in the Flat Rock Trail area of Covington have lived here for over 40 years. Those who have been here for awhile are happy to see younger families moving to the area.
