Let­ter to the ed­i­tor

The Covington News - - OPINION -

Ex­cel­lent cov­er­age

Dear Ed­i­tor: We would like to ex­press our thanks to The Cov­ing­ton News for the ar­ti­cle “Unit­ing against can­cer” on May 30 that pub­li­cized our bat­tle against can­cer while unin­sured and the ef­forts of our com­mu­nity to help us through a fundraiser. The ar­ti­cle by Rachel Oswald was sen­si­tive to our per­sonal sit­u­a­tion yet in­for­ma­tive of our needs and the po­si­tion many peo­ple are fac­ing with ris­ing in­sur­ance and med­i­cal costs.

We ap­pre­ci­ate and ac­knowl­edge that The News em­ploys a re­porter like Rachel and a pho­to­jour­nal­ist like Mandi Singer, who can come into your home, make you feel at ease, ask ques­tions, lis­ten, com­pile facts and re­lated in­for­ma­tion, take pho­tos with a heart and write an ar­ti­cle that ex­presses to the pub­lic in a com­pas­sion­ate and in­for­ma­tive way a com­mu­nity con­cern.

Due to the ar­ti­cle and the ef­forts of the NCHS classes of 1962-65, Cen­tral com­mu­nity Church, fam­ily, friends and the Cov­ing­ton com­mu­nity, the fundraiser was a suc­cess and a bless­ing. We thank God for each and ev­ery bless­ing and pray that God blesses ev­ery­one who has so richly blessed us.

Thanks again The Cov­ing­ton News, Rachel Oswald and Mandi Singer. Charles and Me­lanie Thacker
