Good moves

The Covington News - - OPINION -

* We are pleased to see that the New­ton County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers has placed signs at Fac­tory Shoals Recre­ation Park that warn swim­mers and waders to be care­ful about be­ing in the Al­covy River.

We hope that vis­i­tors to the park heed the signs, es­pe­cially af­ter large rain­storms.

We do not want to see this land­mark recre­ation area closed down.

It is tragic that life has been lost there, but with a lit­tle more cau­tion, the loss of life can be more eas­ily pre­vented.

* We were glad to read that a new Amer­i­can Le­gion post is to be opened in So­cial Cir­cle.

We owe so much to our vet­er­ans, and it’s im­por­tant for them to have a place where they can gather and en­joy the sup­port and friend­ship of fel­low vet­er­ans.

An­other ben­e­fit of hav­ing an Amer­i­can Le­gion Post in your com­mu­nity is that vet­er­ans, even af­ter their ser­vice, con­tinue to give their time as com­mu­nity vol­un­teers.

God bless our vet­er­ans. May their new post be filled with smiles and good cheer.
