 Here at The Covington News/ we are committed to encouraging you in these difficult economic times to shop in our local area.

 In every edition we have started highlighting a local business that is worthy of your consideration.

 Every edition of this paper also is filled with information about bargains from local businesses and our inserts carry great coupons and discounts.

 Our local grocery stores advertise great sales every week that will help you keep your pantry and your wallet filled.

 By shopping at our area stores you help keep your neighbors employed, which allows them in turn to shop for their needs at local establishments as well.

 We recognize that these are not the best of times. Our paper has also had to tighten its belt and to discontinue some features you may have come to enjoy. It’s not something we have been excited about doing, and we are looking forward to the time when we can put them back into the paper.

 Any smart business person would do the same.

 We know there are great ways to save during these times; we also know that many of you have great ideas about how to save money. We would love for you to share those ideas with us, and we will run those ideas in the paper so your neighbors can share your good practices.

 E-mail us at or drop us a note to The Covington News, 1166 Usher Street, Covington, Ga. 30014. You can also just stop by and share your thoughts.

 We are fortunate to live in a proud, solid community; together we can ensure it stays that way.
