Letter to the editor - Thanks to officer

Dear Editor: On Dec. 31 I was in the local Kroger store, and the place was packed. In the check-out line behind me was a city policeman. He had one can of soup, one item, and I had a cart full of groceries.

I told him to get in front of me since he had only one item, and I had many. He said, "Are you sure?" I said that I had plenty of time. He thanked me, checked out and left.

I went to pay my bill and the cashier said that my bill had already been paid. I said I did not understand. The cashier said that the policeman ahead of me paid my bill. I could not believe it.

This is a man I did not know and had never seen before. I asked the cashier for his name, but she did not know.

She said that he said this was his good deed for the day. I am a very elderly woman and have lived in Covington for over 50 years. I have never had something like this happen to me before.

I want all of Covington to know this is the kind of police department we have in Covington.

(The Chief) and all in our city should be proud of this department.
