We are speechless.
The Our Thoughts section is left blank this week to honor victims in Thursday’s shootings at the Capital Gazette office in Annapolis, Maryland:
Next week this section will return to its purpose of providing informed opinions and commentary of the world and community around us.
The Capital Gazette, like the Covington News, is a community newspaper. Five people there, who work to serve their friends and neighbors, were killed. We are hurting for our colleagues.
The Covington News staff will have active shooter training Monday, July 9. Our office will close at 3:30 p.m. that day.
Our Thoughts is the opinion of The Covington News’ editorial board, which includes Editor and Publisher David Clemons and Managing Editor Jackie Gutknecht.
