Easy to Di­gest

The Covington News - - Opinion -

The city of Por­terdale has some very vo­cal boost­ers, so it’s easy to see why the city will be hon­ored by Reader’s Di­gest.

The city is set to re­ceive $1,000 from the mag­a­zine and will be a stop on its RV tour of 100 Amer­i­can towns. Fan­tas­tic. The money will be pre­sented on Jan. 28 to Mayor Bobby Hamby, and it can be used for most any­thing that the city wants or needs.

Read­ers Di­gest is a ven­er­a­ble pub­li­ca­tion well at­tuned to ev­ery­day Amer­ica. Sto­ries told by Por­terdale res­i­dents about the city are what im­pressed con­test judges, ac­cord­ing to our re­port in Sun­day’s news­pa­per. You can read it on­line at Cov­news.com.

Por­terdale at the start of the week ranked 286 in the con­test, up from 486 last week. There’s still a chance for the com­mu­nity to move into the Top 10, which could bring an ad­di­tional $10,000, money that could be used for any­thing from re­build­ing the gym to beau­ti­fi­ca­tion projects.

That’s a nice chunk of change. You can help Por­terdale, or vote for your own com­mu­nity, at we­heary­ouamer­ica.read­er­s­di­gest.com.
